We believe that as more women step into their personal power for collective good, we really will change the world. 

Our mission is to inspire women to occupy their natural and visionary leadership to create bodies of work, innovation and movements of change.

Creating a movement of women being who they are & changing the world
Melissa Sandon is the founder of Woman & Earth and has a deep passion for the Earth. Trained as an Environmental Engineer, she soon realised that engineering solutions were only a small part of the necessary whole-system change for humans to live and thrive with our beautiful planet.

Her need for more lead her into a decade of learning to connect more intuitively with the world around and the study of energetic science both as resourced and connected alternative to scarcity capitalism but also as an inherent way of creativity - to embody and feel the vibrant potential in and around us.

She naturally began weaving these principles into her environmental work and from it emerged a passion and certainty that women have a vital role to play in the world we create for the future.

She's worked with hundreds of passionate women leaders & entrepreneurs in the development of their thought-leadership and original bodies of work. She mentors women to create thriving livelihoods of their passion - working at the intersection of impact business, feminised economies and participatory co-creation and co-design.

Melissa consults to organisations who are looking to create innovative online and in-person training programs impact leaders. She also mentors leaders through Woman & Earth in their passion work & impact businesses. 



Our planet and its people are calling us. Your dreams are tied to the Earth.

We are an integrated part of this world. What happens to the land and to our collective bodies, happens to us. Our leadership exists through four rhythms: our relationship to body, earth, cosmos & world.

Our wildest future cannot be created without solving our disembodied destruction: ecological collapse, colonization of indigenous people, oppression trauma, mass extinction, climate change disasters & wealth inequality.

If we’re going to create an extraordinary future, thriving in harmony on the living planet, where empathy & possibilities co-mingle together......then we need every human to unlock their vibrant, deeply embodied potential.

Our bodies always know the way. We’ll explore the abundant, natural, wild bio-rhythms of who we are - to change the world.

We'll also look to learn from the indigenous cultures who have lived in regeneration and reciprocity with nature from tens of thousands of years.

Re-wilding | Regeneration | Resourcefulness | Revolution

This is a journey of creating your living legacy, on the living planet.

We recognise the rich cultural history and custodianship of First Nations people for Country.  We acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal people as the traditional owners on this land. We recognise that the land was never ceded and we pay our respects to the Elders, past and present as the holders of the memories, the traditions, the culture and the spiritual wellbeing of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation.

We acknowledge before European colonisation, the land, the river and its tributaries were the source and support of life in all its dimensions and we cannot do our soul work on this land without this recognition.

In the spirit of reconciliation, respect and partnership, we will invest in learning, and being guided by, the wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
