Melanie DewBerry, author of The Power of Naming, The Journey toward Your Soul’s Indigenous Nature. Melanie is in the business of courage & human potential & describes herself as a fellow traveler finding her way home. The power of naming our identity. Positive or negative, loving or hateful, it shapes our beliefs about the safety to be our full self. At nine, she first experienced the power of naming when moving to a new city. “A policeman’s kid tried to hose me down on the way to school. Here I heard the ‘N word’ for the first time.” Neighbors signed a petition to force them out of the neighborhood & made death threats. “I didn’t understand. All I knew, suddenly, someone didn’t love me. That felt strange.” “You’ve always had an inkling of your essence, but you’ve played a game of hide-and-seek with your soul.” Ready to be seen?Join Cheryl Esposito & Melanie DewBerry to peek into your own journey to name your essence - the indigenous nature of your soul.
