Claudette Melchizedek

Claudette Melchizedek’s work comes from a 6,000 year old tradition from ancient Israel that is linked to an ancient lineage now known as The Blue School.  At the age of 31 at the time and with everything in her outer life seemingly in place, Claudette discovered the Blue School Teachings which resulted in a whole new life path. As Claudette puts it; “It became the only thing I wanted to do from that point on”. Using guided imagery exercises, Claudette leads her participants into waking dreams whose images are often as vivid and clear as the most intense night dreams. Waking Dreams stimulate the imagination, enhance the creativity, and serve to focus the dreamer’s attention on what is affecting him or her at the subconscious level. The exercises that Claudette shares in her workshops are ancient tools for consciousness. Put to practice, The Blue School techniques have the capacity to heal anything.
