It helped me to structure my process, make reasonable step by step goals, and, ultimately, allowed me to produce strategies that brought my idea into reality.”

Here’s what participants had to say about Tressa’s Mind-Body-Writing workshops:

Tressa was great at making me feel relaxed for my first experience with meditation. It is challenging for me to calm my thoughts and quiet my mind, but I was able to do so with her instructions. The creative writing assignment after a meditation was perfect. It allowed me to take everything out of my mind and put it on paper. Thoughts that I did not even think ended up on the paper. I really enjoyed the exercise and assignments!
– Tanesha Bryan, The Station House Co-Work Space, St. Petersburg, Florida

Tressa possesses a wealth of knowledge on various methods of self-inquiry writing to help uncover the nature of our mind. With gentleness and precision, Tressa guided us through various prompts and provided space for discussing and sharing our work. It was a profound weekend full of insightful conversations and genuine connections. She is a master at creating a safe and expansive space for creativity to thrive.
