Internal Transformation


External Transformation


"The condition of our nature is complex, but it can be studied with help from ideas from great teachers. Michele is emphatically one of them — a rare being in our world showing up consistently as a lovingly ruthless master of our nature. 

It will be clear from the moment you first meet her that the she considers each being’s array of foibles devoid of even the tiniest streak of judgement (which speaks to the quality of her own inner work). Impressively, she gets to the heart of all your possibilities and deepest wishes soon after first getting to know you.

I am forever indebted to Michele, a woman of remarkable patience, who over the last two years has armed me with an essential tool chest that I reach for throughout my day.

Davis Rosborough

Chief of Staff, Amobee

"Michele has helped me connect to my true, authentic self. She has given me the language, tools and mindset to create my future.  Because of Michele, I have learned to heal, have self-compassion, and removed blocks that prevented more meaningful connections. Her teachings and insight have led me to make critical decisions, both personal and professional, that have effectively changed the course of my life for the better."  

Annie Lewallen, YSC Consulting, New York

"I have been bothered with anxiety my whole life. Medicine and talk therapy took the edge off, but I wanted more—I wanted to wake up each morning and NOT wonder whether it would be a good day or a bad day. Little did I know that my first session with Michele would be the beginning of a wonderful change in me. She taught me the power of meditation. With this new-found skill at my fingertips, I approach each day with joy and confidence.  I can honestly say that meeting Michele and learning the power of meditation was the best thing I have ever done for myself.  I love the new me!"

Sondra Wah, PA

"I consider myself to have a scientifically oriented mind and take care – and pride – not to form opinions that aren’t evidence based.  I had read a great deal about the scientific evidence for the many positive benefits of Yoga and Meditation.  Having worked with a wonderful life coach, Michele Risa, I am now living proof of those benefits.  My blood pressure is now in a healthy range and my range of motion has improved substantially.   I was lucky to have found Michele.  Together, we continue to work on several quality of life issues.  I have benefited tremendously from the work we are doing together."

Paul, Finance, New York

"Michele offered expertise with a "strong emphasis on communication with clarity and recognizing impediments to effective communication such as preconceptions, blind spots, and historical experiences."

Terry Katz

Executive Director, Center for Applied Judaism, Society of Jewish Science, NY

"After only a few hours of speaking and working with Michele, what I learned about myself (and continue to learn) has had advantages that far outweigh what I had initially hoped for. 

Through discussion, careful listening, provocative questions, genuine compassion, and friendship, Michele has helped me realize and believe in my talents, find confidence in my ability to manifest change I want in my life, and approach the world with a mindset of positivity, opportunity, and love. It's not until you can learn to love and forgive yourself, that you can truly maximize your potential. Michele can help you do this.

Michelangelo once said: "Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it." You are the sculptor, and Michele provides the tools necessary to help you reveal the best version of yourself."
