"The workshop I attended with Nancy Mellon offered me a window into my soul and the creative powers that reside there. What was remarkable was that the workshop did the same for each participant, and the result was an outpouring of creativity that the room came alive with pleasure, excitement, awe, mystery, magic and deep healing. Her storytelling work is profoundly important, especially now when our world desperately needs the wisdom power of our collective imaginations to create transformations."
-- Zoe Weil, Institute for Humane Education, Surrey, Maine

"After I worked with Nancy Mellon, in just one session, what had been a very painful, overwhelming family situation lost its power to torment me. I could laugh, and find creative new perspectives. Even four years later the healing I received on that day is with me. Thank you." -- Life Coach, California
