Radical Self-Love Retreat

June 15, 2018 - June 18, 2018


Are you ready to love yourself truly, madly and deeply and transform your life from the inside out?

Join us for this transformational healing retreat!

Join yoga and meditation teacher Michelle Taffe over these 4 days and 3 nights dedicated to reconnecting with yourself, and learning to love and care for yourself in brand new ways.

We will be practicing yoga, meditation and connecting deeply with the breath each day, We will use Aryurvedic teachings for creating vibrant health, introspection and journalling practices for self-exploration and self-discovery. There will be optional Reiki and Massage treatments on offer as well.


Self-love is the heart of a healthy life.

If you don’t love and care for yourself, you are not able to love and care for others.

In order to give to others we need first to fill our own cups with self-love and self-care.

There are lots of reasons why we may not be as loving towards ourselves as we could be, usually because we learnt our models of loving ourselves through our parents and caregivers who most likely had their own difficulties with loving themselves. In order to love ourselves fully we need to develop an ongoing loving relationship with ourselves.

That means:

  • We let go of self judgement,
  • We fully accept ourselves
  • We honour ourselves and where we are on life’s journey,
  • We forgive ourselves quickly and easily for our mistakes,
  • We develop a relationship with our inner child,
  • We listen to our hearts,
  • We follow our intuition and
  • We develop loving and healthy relationships with others.

We will be diving into all of these themes during this retreat in our Self Love workshop sessions. Tools we will use include: group sharing (nobody is ever obliged to share), journalling, narrative therapy (re-framing our stories), eye gazing meditations, and guided meditations. 


The yoga offered on this retreat will be hatha style yoga suitable for all body types and all levels of practice.

We will be investigating all the different postures from the perspective of self love and self care, with the aim that you can come away from the retreat with a yoga practice for yourself that you can do at home.

Our meditations will be focused on staying present with the breath and becoming mindful of the bodily sensations as they arise and fall away, thus bringing us into harmony with the present moment.

There will also be daily guided meditations on self-love relating to the theme of each day.
