78 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Stories of Sobriety (Tahra Luther)

March 22, 2018

I love Tahra Luther and have since we first met. She helped me tremendously as I navigated my move from Las Vegas, NV to Ann Arbor, MI. She has a heart that is genuine and open to all. She loves big and has a way about her that is authentic and so real. She's an inspiration to many and proclaims my life's theme song, "This Is Me!" 

Tahra Luther was born in Methuen, Massachusetts and lived in Brazil for a few years as a baby. She grew up in Florida, and then moved to Michigan with her parents, where she has resided for the past 22 years. She received her BS in Zoology at Michigan State University, and MS in Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology at University of Michigan. She works as a Lab Manager doing Cancer Immunotherapy at University of Michigan, where she has worked for the past 11 years. She is very involved in her recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, as well as anxiety. She loves to constantly learn, snuggle her beautiful Schipperke pup Cedella, read fiction and personal growth books of all kinds, and spend time with her loved ones, including an abundance of close friends, family, and wonderful loving fiancé Dan. She is half Punjabi (Indian) and loves to learn about her culture. She is extremely grateful for her wonderful life and always appreciates being able to help others in numerous capacities.

{Lead From the Heart}

"I lead my team from the heart, always in alignment with who I am and with respect to who others are.

I take ownership for what I create because I'm rooted in truth and I walk with integrity."


"A shift happened when I discovered that my gifts of empathy and discernment were strengths I could lead with and that leading from the heart wasn't a weakness." {Jen H}

March 1, 2018

I am looking forward to meeting Jason Mitchell IRL (in real life) as he has a sense of ease and comfort that is not usually common today. He has an open heart and is always willing to help because he's all about being of service to others. Shortly after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, NV (my second hometown) I asked Jason if he was willing to lead a guided meditation and he was eager to be a source of support and calm during that trying time. 

Jason Mitchell is an Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioner and has been a part of the Agape community for more nearly 12 years. As the director of the sacred service ministry at Agape he enjoys introducing people to the powerful spiritual practice of service as well as supporting Agape’s growth and expansion. In 2016 he joined the staff at Agape where he is the manager for the prayer ministry and the practitioner core. Whether Jason is facilitating Our Daily Prayer Call, a community which has been coming together Monday – Friday for more than 5 years, engaging creative expression through in his photography or working with clients he brings a basic principle to all that he does, “In service to love, in service as love.”

With a background that ranges from working as a teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School district, serving Los Angeles' homeless population for nearly 8 years, providing spiritual counseling, facilitating classes and workshops and participating in spiritual leadership within his communities Jason has a commitment to service and knows that it is key to the transforming our individual lives and creating a world that works for everyone.
