In September of 2010, Talya and Diarmuid met by chance on the island of Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand. Having so much in common in the areas of personal development, nutrition and health, an immediate bond was formed. In the months that followed, they lived between Bali, Thailand and Ireland, working together with great excitement on Superl!fe.
At this present time, the world is going through a dramatic health crisis. The modern world’s lifestyle is fast and everything, especially our food, is instant. As we all know, food related illnesses are higher than ever: diabetes, heart disease, obesity and many more.
To solve this growing epidemic we feel that a global shift is needed on every level. Now is the time for thousands of food companies worldwide to offer real, authentic, healthier options, and for millions of people to reeducate themselves on body, mind and nutrition. This will lead to a happier and healthier life.
We Can Have A Superl!fe!
I was born to a Canadian mother and a Belgian father. After graduating from high school and followed by several years of travels throughout the world, at the age of 24 I opened my own cake business which became very successful, and for 12 years I baked and supplied homemade cakes to the major coffee shops and coffee shop chains. It saw me through 5 years of film school, acting studies and a yoga teacher’s course.
During those years I went through major changes in my beliefs, diet and lifestyle, gradually growing closer to healthy and natural living and eating. At age 36, the cake business felt like a “gilded cage”, no longer in accordance with my values. After much thought and internal conflict I decided to close the business, letting go of my acting and filmmaker dreams, and to build a life I was truly passionate about, on every level. When life presented me with a special opportunity, I jumped into the unknown with enthusiasm and trust, flying to NYC to study Holistic Nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. That is where I first encountered superfoods, which dramatically upgraded my diet and changed my life.
Today I use all my knowledge and life experience, gathered from the traditions of both the East and the West, to help people become happier, healthier, more conscious and more fulfilled. For Health Counseling with Talya
I was born near Dublin in the small country town of Moneyhill. At the age of 7, I was diagnosed as severely dyslexic, yet at this same time, with great determination I set up little businesses and became a young entrepreneur. Following high school, I studied Horticulture and Landscape Design and upon completion of my studies at age 20, I opened my own business. During my years of business I realised that a lot of stress was building up in me so I made it my priority to find a way to deal with it effectively. Every winter for the past 14 years I have traveled throughout the world in search of ways to relax, train the mind and enjoy good times.
Over the past ten years I have trained extensively in many martial arts, yoga and in-depth meditation practices. These various systems have had a dramatic effect on my mind and life. One of the most noticeable changes was in the way I simplified my life and my business, thus improving the quality of my life and making my business very successful. When the latest financial crash hit the world, things changed again. Ireland was flattened along with many businesses, and so I decided to head off on a one-year sabbatical dedicated to meditation. Though I would return to Ireland for work, that year stretched into three, gradually leading me towards the right moment to set up Superl!fe.
