In 2007, Michelle received training and certification in Emotional Polarity Technique (EPTworks) by developer Dr. Annette Cargioli. Michelle began using this tool immediately in voluntary situations, as well as in her work as a children's music and movement teacher and private vocal coach. She found herself working with people of all types in various settings, and in many places in the United States and Europe. After developing her own style and integrating this method with several other tools, Michelle established Radiant Heart Shifting and founded Radiant Heart Revolution in 2013; she sees these concepts as expansive, and is excited to witness their continual evolution.
And perhaps most importantly, Michelle Christine's greatest love is music and healing sound. Part of her studies in Creative Arts Therapy included an in-depth study of Cymatics, Vibrational Medicine and Sound Healing, which lead her to an extraordinary experience in field research with the last aboriginal shaman ('Mun') of the Lepcha tribe in the Himalayas in 2005. Michelle has been writing songs and performing for over 18 years; each year and each experience bringing her to a deeper level of understanding of the powerful and lasting effect that gratitude and generosity, combined with the vibration of the voice, has in a group dynamic.
Since her studies abroad in India, Michelle Christine Garza has lived and traveled periodically in several other places in the world with the intention to be of service and to study and explore different cultures and ways of being that produce community, sustainability and fulfilment. In 2014, Michelle moved to the Netherlands, where she now lives with her partner, Andor, and enjoys experiencing and co-creating radiant community.

The mission of Radiant Heart Revolution is to support and collaborate with women and families in living authentic, healthy, earth-conscious, purpose-driven lives-- which naturally contribute to the the health, consciousness and radiance of our earth and our global community.
It is also the mission of Radiant Heart Revolution to advocate ways of being and exchange that create more equilibrium in giving and receiving, and bring generosity into the world.
Radiant Heart Revolution's Mission:
Radiant Heart Revolution is a concept, an intention, of movement into and within a radiant state of being. The radiant state is both active and effortless because it is who we long to be, and who we naturally are. Participating in a revolution of radiance requires a choice. We choose to show up for ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world community. By consciously participating in the choice to be radiant as an individual, we have already shifted ourselves and the world paradigm to a position of greater joy and peace.
