Your Journey Guide, Michelle Elise Taffe
My life's journey is the journey of Radical Self Love. The initials of my name spell out M.E.T : Met. For me this signifies my challenge of meeting myself, and really loving what I see.
Each day I learn to love myself more so that I can bring more of myself to this planet and give more of myself to all the beings I come into contact with. As a child I was deeply sensitive, and so grew up in a world which many times was frightening for me, because it seemed to be based on competition, and struggle. It seemed like I was, through our school system, being trained for a dog eat dog world. And my experience in school was one of sometimes being bullied and I never understood why some people had to try to torment and dominate me in order to feel good. I was a teenager who loved to play Mozart on the piano but was not interested in boyfriends so I had to pretend to be to 'fit in'. Often I was sick so that I would be able to stay home and read books instead of going into the soup of hormones and drama that was high school. Then at age 29, I finally threw in the towel of my life, and went to Thailand to a Buddhist monastery to do a Vipassana retreat when I realised that I was living with a low grade depression that had been with me since I was about 12.
Since then, I have been on a journey of awakening to my beauty and my soul's true purpose, and helping others to do the same.
As an empath I have the ability to sense and intuit things about other people. I am able to see and feel what it is that they are holding back and not saying, or what erroneous beliefs they have taken on. I can walk into a room and I know at once who is angry, who is happy, who is conflicted, who is sad.
The three foundations of my Radical Self Love journey are yoga, meditation, and creativity to support a healthy body, soul and mind.
I have created this Hero's Journey to Radical Self Love to support you in opening to your beauty, presence and power in a group of like minded souls who are all walking this path through the forest together.
