More About Melanie & Oshea
Oshea and Melanie's rite of passage has been blessed and gratifying. They have humbly studied under the tutelage of author, poet, and priest Father Amde of the legendary Watts Prophets, award-winning documentary filmmaker, author, and poet S. Pearl Sharp, and The Grandfather of Rap and acupuncturist Dr. Jalal Mansur Nuriddin of the legendary Last Poets, to name a few. As non-denominational ministers, Melanie and Oshea are sought after to facilitate weddings, funerals, rite-of- passage ceremonies, and many other sacred rituals throughout the year. Melanie and Oshea's research and life experiences have cultivated a unique philosophy that celebrates internal balance, suggesting that everyone has the innate ability to experience love inwardly, and the awareness of this actuality triggers an opening to explore love’s trajectory.
To witness Oshea and Melanie’s chemistry onstage is to see magic unfold. Some have coined them balance personified; others have said that they’re hopeful of love when in their presence. Whatever your regards, this unit will truly leave your insides warm when witnessing how they relate, create, reverence, and uplift each other through one of their many outlets of expression. As herbalists, writers, poets, speakers, and holistic life-purpose coaches, Oshea and Melanie are certainly gifts that keep on giving.

Is the theme of the books fabric, inciting laughter, provoking thought, and encouraging stillness through rumination, as one voyage through these poignant questions and antidotes for self-love.
