Melissa Michaels, Ed.D., creates movement based cross-cultural community journeys focusing on the potential that is available at all of life's major thresholds. As the founder and director of Surfing The Creative® International, Melissa developed the first contemporary youth leadership rites of passage program rooted in dance. She is a midwife of the soul, initiating the births of embodied leaders around the world. The story of this work will soon be released in Melissa’s forthcoming book, Youth On Fire. Her not-for-profit organization, Golden Bridge, has been engaged in the healing, initiating, educating, and mentoring of diverse young people and the adults who serve them for three decades. As a Fielding University Fellow, she is currently bringing SomaSource®, the body of work she has developed to numerous cross-boundary communities around the world. Melissa is a social artist, dancing and dedicated to our collective renewal through the liberation of the creative Spirit.
