People say that what we’re seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. What we seek is an experience of being alive. ~ Joseph Campbell
I’m so glad you found me!
Welcome to Honeybee Holistic, an online community that inspires women to live intentionally through a daily practice of self-care, empowered eating, and creative living.
I’m Melissa Danielle. I graduated from Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2005 and have enjoyed an eclectic career as a health coach, local food advocate, and social storyteller.
I’m driven by my desires (feelings and activities that give me pleasure) over obligation and expectation.
- being healthy is a choice
- people should be guided to do what feels best for them economically and ecologically
- you can blur the lines between work and play when you are guided by your desires
- self-care is a revolutionary act
- a creative outlook on life keeps us connected and flexible amidst constant change
I’ve worked with public health professionals, farmers, food makers and shakers, recent college grads, young moms, communities with special needs, wealthy people, people who want to be wealthy, and everyone in between. I’ve met hundreds of people during my journey and no matter where I go, it’s all the same: We all want to feel safe, secure, and feel good in our bodies and in our livelihoods.
Today, I work primarily with creative and wellness women who find themselves too busy to enjoy the life they thought self-employment would afford them. I show them how to reimagine a life that makes space for everything that nourishes them from a divinely woman and pleasure-centered space.
And you’re invited to join us!
There’s lots to see and do on this site, so I’ve put together this short list to help get you started.
