“Sometimes I think that you are an angel from somewhere….just this morning i have been debating with myself whether I had done something wrong with a friend whom all of a sudden doesn’t reply to my messages…knowing her i thought that she maybe wasn’t happy with something i had said and thats why the odd behaviour…anyway this issue has been bothering me since yesterday when i noticed she wasn’t getting back to me anymore…and then here i saw your message asking: Are you a people pleaser?… and there i found the answer to my internal debate…and the answer was … I have done nothing wrong … I have just been myself and if she got upset with anything i may have said it would be nice if she let me know…like a true friend would do. My happiness will not depend on whether or not she gets back to me. It’s time for me to let go of this person if thats what she wants…I will always love her and I will be here and welcome her in my life any time if she wants to get in touch with me.”

‘Radical Self Love’ Retreats

“I joined Michelle for her Radical Self Love yoga and meditation retreat, and I am so glad I did.

The weekend consisted of meditation, workshops and yoga – all of which were challenging, and subsequently more rewarding. Michelle created a programme that fostered deep reflection and subsequently garnered profound personal insights. 

As a very private person I thought I would be uncomfortable given the personal nature of the workshops, but Michelle created a warm, non judgemental, accepting space in which I felt comfortable sharing, and getting deep into the heart of things. 

The time I spent with Michelle was really valuable, and many changes have come about in my life as a result.”

Thanks Michelle! X”

Annette Carling, Radical Self Love Retreat, Victoria, June 2018

“Attending Michelle’s Radical Self Love Retreat in Bali was an amazing experience, perfectly timed, and delivered all I was seeking and more. The location was perfect and I felt warmly welcomed and deeply nurtured from the moment I arrived until the moment I left.

Michelle created a beautiful, open, loving, safe space for me to connect with myself in ways I hadn’t realised that I could or even needed.

I very much enjoyed the daily yoga and meditation practices which served to help connect with my mind and body in ways I hadn’t before and by the end of the 6 days had me feeling very pleased with my achievements and confident to continue my practice once back home.

I absolutely loved the daily self-love workshops and gained so much from them. Michelle covered so many meaningful topics which guided me to some powerful realisations and an overall deepening love and appreciation for myself.

Michelle is a lovely being and an amazing facilitator who is so clearly living and growing in self-love and who is also deeply drawn to helping others to dive deeper into themselves and deeper into their own self-loving journeys.

I would absolutely join another of Michelle’s retreats, and for anyone seeking a safe, loving space to connect with oneself on a deeper level, I’d highly recommend attending.”

“I found the overall RSL retreat to be so inspiring and it has assisted me to become more grounded and connected with myself. My teacher, Michelle Taffe, was excellent at bringing people together in a workshop environment, in terms of connecting both with themselves and with each other as a group.

I felt a strong bond develop as the retreat progressed, within the group, that enabled us all to relax more, to open up as a group on emotional and personal, even in a sense spiritual, levels.

Michelle is also a great yoga and meditation teacher; she is patient, communicates very well, and demonstrates yoga practice and meditation on both spiritual and physical platforms, in a connected, calming, supportive and inspiring way. I would really encourage individuals who wish to explore and develop self love , as well as to enhance their yoga and meditation techniques, to attend one of Michelle’s RSL retreats. Apart from the fact that she chooses great locations in which to open up an ambient space for RSL exploration!”
