Radical Love Foundation supports people to fully be their unique selves. Founded on the life work of Judith Orloff, our organization is dedicated to inspiring individuals to live mindfully: to be aware of our own hand in creating our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, behaviors, results and relationships. This allows us to let go of judgment and isolation and to act from a place of authenticity and open-mindedness. We work with veterans, couples, families and those struggling with addictions of any description.
Radical Love means the “Root of Love.”
Our Purpose: See Clearly. Live Passionately. Love Radically.
Our Vision: Living life free of judgment and fear.
Our Mission: To inspire others to transform the world through mindful action.
When she was just thirteen, Kierkegaard, Kant and movie magazines were Judith’s writers of choice. It’s no surprise that she’s accomplished quite a bit since then. Establishing a college, authoring several books, helping thousands as a psychotherapist and awareness guide, and starting a successful education company are among her achievements. She sees Radical Love and DeepSee as the next step in her life’s work, and she’s up at 5 every morning to make it happen (although, sometimes she really wants to just stay at home and watch Homeland).
You can read about what inspired her to start Radical Love here.
Melis, as we affectionately call her, is an irreverent, quirky humanitarian. Her sense of humor is dry as a desert, and her large family is the love of her life. When she’s not spending time with her grandkids or leading Wednesday Evening Events, she’s painting gorgeous portraits and expressionist paintings. Coming from a newspaper family, Melis is passionate about free speech, and her drive manifests itself in her work at Radical Love Foundation, where she so enjoys living and working in the Six Principles, and guiding others to do the same.
Sarah supports people to act and interact from a place that’s clear and genuine, and she certainly lives that way herself. In fact, she’s been living this work, sometimes with Judith and sometimes without, for over thirty years. Nowadays, when she’s not working with children who’ve experienced trauma, or having wonderfully weird dinner conversations with her family, Sarah acts as our creative lead. She is thrilled to create with Judith again, and she feels that Radical Love is building what she always envisioned: a way to guide millions of people to self-empowerment through authenticity.
Darragh joins the team from Ireland but more importantly he’s from Cork! Having graduated from University College of Cork as a Marketing Major he felt the need to explore and in the same vein of his favourite movie, Dumb & Dumber, he took a cross-country trip. He got lost on the way to Aspen and ended up in Boulder, close enough! When he’s not repeating himself in a clearer accent, Darragh likes to cook or visit the farmer’s market. He’s looking forward to contributing to the great movement here at Radical Love.
Ali is our own personal Dorothy. She grew up in Kansas until the winds blew her to the land of Oz (Colorado), and life was never the same! She enjoys exploring her new state with her husband, Blain, and sweet puppy, Jack, when her nose isn’t buried in a book! She studied Business Communications at Fort Hays State University and is excited to put her leadership and communication skills to good use.
Dave grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Wanting to find a way to tap into his potential and to push his understanding of what he was capable of achieving he joined the Marine Corps at 19. Inspired by his own growth Dave has sought out opportunities to help others in their journeys of self-discovery every since. He moved to Colorado to pursue a career in outdoor education before being motivated to work towards his M.A. in mental health counseling. Although Dave loves working with others, he finds his sanity in returning to the wilderness, running, reading, and hitting up the occasional Yoga class. Dave is excited to be a part of the Radical Love Foundation team and looks forward to continuing to serve others through their own self-discovery.
