Autobiography

Short bio:

Melanie Dilday lives where ever her heart takes her. Born in South Africa to Dutch parents, she lives in various parts of Australia and Asia, mostly following the sun. Her social media business allows her flexibility and freedom, two of her most treasured attributes. She’s always enjoyed writing, but it took 50 monkeys and a dog to inspire her to write her first book.  Through her journey towards enlightenment and peace of mind, Melanie has developed a clear and easy-to-follow guide for others and runs workshops and retreats based on some of the practices in “Buddha in a Red Dress”.

Long bio:

Melanie Dilday lives where ever her heart takes her. Born in South Africa to Dutch parents, she lives in various parts of Australia and Asia, mostly following the sun. Her social media and online businesses allow her flexibility and freedom, two of her most treasured attributes.

She’s always enjoyed writing, but it took 50 monkeys and a dog to inspire her to write her first book “Buddha in a Red Dress”.

With over 30 years’ experience  and exploration in personal growth work, spiritual growth, meditation, mindfulness, therapies and transformational workshops, Melanie has developed easy-to-learn processes demonstrated  in her book.

She has found that people from all walks of life who have implemented some of these processes have found a level of freedom, fulfilment and peace that they could not have previously imagined.

Relationships improve, stress dissolves, life flows and becomes an adventure again.

Melanie runs meditation workshops in Midland, Western Australia and retreats in Bali based on some of the practices in “Buddha in a Red Dress”.
