Melina Ponak

Melina Ponak, founder of Women's Listening Space, loves the saying that stories grow in the sunshine of listening!

Being heard is deeply nourishing. Listening is deeply nourishing. And there is a magic that happens when both happen. This magic is what Melina is working to create an everyday context for in Women's Listening Space. Also, she hopes to collaborate with other listening-inspired people to create more Listening Spaces. A Storyteller's Listening Space is on her wish list. 

Melina currently focuses her storytelling energy on her two children in Victoria, BC. In the past, while living in Boulder, California, and Boston, she has taught storytelling to teachers, performed wisdom tales, and laughed a ton while co-creating spontaneous stories with both adults and children.
