I came home from this trip so relaxed, revitalized and completely transformed. Never have I been on a vacation where I felt like I got so much rest, but was actively learning the whole time! I was a first time surfer (it was pretty obvious) and it was amazing to actually stand up the first day. I love yoga and the jungle setting and sound bath made the experience unforgettable. Michelle’s mindfulness training was the perfect touch to the whole experience and I have implemented those lessons every single day since I have been home! Michelle made such a sincere effort to connect with every person in our group and was an amazing guide for every aspect of our trip to Costa Rica. At the end of the first day I was already planning my return trip!

Hi Summer! I was so happy to read that you found the mindfulness training useful and inspiring and have continued to use those skills after you left - this is like music to my ears! I hope you continue to live a life guided by your values and use the skills to challenge yourself in your future endeavours, both in your personal life and in the workplace. It was great to meet you and I really hope we have the opportunity to catch up again in the future. Kind regards, Michelle

Michelle’s Surf Your Mind program is the most transformational program I have had the opportunity to attend. The content is priceless. I have been a student of mindfulness for years, and this experience nails down the practical side of incorporating mindfulness to stay true to living the life meant for us.

Our program was set around yoga, surf, and friends in beautiful Costa Rica. We laughed, we cried, and all came home better people.

Michelle taught me things I could never learn from a self-help book. This is a trip you will never forget! Go alone, go with a group, just go!

Surf your mind is exactly what I needed and I would recommend it to all my friends! The program is run by Mitchell, A truly gifted psychologist. She teaches helpful tools u can take back home and implement in your daily stressful work life and Home. I feel grateful for the staff of Shaka and Mitchell for creating such an awesome environment. I felt safe to recharge and fill myself up with the Pura Vida of Costa Rica. The surf instructors where so helpful... I felt safe to push myself a little further each day! Since I’m a beginner I had a lot of anxiety about entering the surf but I felt well guided to have fun and release the the anxiety through surf your mind .The food was amazing and the yoga was truly needed after surfing. I will definitely be back to Shaka And recommend surf your mind camps led by Mitchell! Keep up the the good work u really do make a difference in my life and others. Much love Angie...

Angie thank you so much for the lovely review! It's fabulous to know that the program resonated with you and that you felt like it gave you some skills for implementing back home in the stress of daily work life. This makes me happy! I'm also thrilled that you felt safe to push yourself in the surf, and had a great time doing it at the same time. It was good to be able to have a phone chat with you before the program - it felt like I knew you a little before you arrived. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and thank you for sharing a part of your life journey with myself and the other program participants. Love and peace, Michelle

Action-packed days challenged and rejuvenated my body and mind. Fresh coffee and fruit. Morning surfing in warm, turquoise waves. Restorative brunch. Reading and napping in a hammock. Yoga. Mindfulness training. Running on the beach. Tasty dinner. Sleep. Repeat.

Special shout out to Michelle Wharton who developed and led the mindfulness training. Michelle is a great teacher – passionate, knowledgeable, thoughtful, compassionate, funny, and surprisingly practical. The program was transformational.

Shaka was beautiful, and all of the staff were so attentive and kind.

Sincere thanks for a wonderful week!

Kevin thank you so much for your kind words about my Introduction to Mindfulness program currently being run at Shaka in Costa Rica. It was really a wonderful week and a unique opportunity to work with a group of great men. I hope you continue to find ways to get present during your day, to get grounded when difficulties come up, and take steps towards achieving your goals. Keep surfing! Michelle

I am immensely grateful that I got to participate in Michelle’s Surf Your Mind workshop during my second week at Shaka. The class was a perfect addition to a week of surfing, yoga, and relaxation.

Going into the workshop, I had meditation and mindfulness experience; I’ve notched around 30 days total of silent retreat time and do my best to meditate 30 – 60 minutes a day. With that said, I gained just as much out of my week with Michelle as the participants who have never meditated or explored mindfulness before. She teaches with a wisdom and flexibility that ensures everyone, no matter their prior experience or outlook, will leave her workshop with clarity, direction, and an arsenal of life enhancing skills.

While this is a mindfulness workshop, I took away far more than a deeper understanding of mindfulness. Michelle does cover the topics of meditation and mindfulness extraordinarily well. I’ve had some bad meditation teachers over the years and Michelle’s emphasis on accessibility, sincerity, and applicability was notably refreshing. If you have little experience in these arenas but want to learn more, this would undoubtedly be an exceptional introduction.

For me though, the lessons on goal setting, values, and life prioritization were the most compelling facets of the workshop. Michelle, with her deep knowledge of relevant scientific literature and personal experience as a practicing psychologist, helped all of us figure out what we wanted in life and how we could best get there. Thanks to this week, I have a better sense of who I want to be and how I can overcome the obstacles on my path. I never thought that I could learn so much about myself in a week; this workshop turned out to be immeasurably valuable.

Anyone who wants to learn more about mindfulness and/or realizing a better life for themselves should participate in Surf Your Mind. The program blew me away and I can imagine all future participants will say the same.

Daniel THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your kind words. I'm delighted that you and Christian were able to join the workshop, and your input and the examples you gave from your personal experiences were invaluable. I'm also so pleased you found the program content gave you direction for setting goals and considering future directions. It's hugely important to me that everyone, regardless of their past experiences gets something out of the workshop and your review provides further inspiration for my research and program planning. Wishing you a values-based future. Love and peace, Michelle

My boyfriend and I had the best experience during this workshop! I have already recommended this course to some of my friends and family! This is a great program and I give it my highest recommendation!

This mindfulness workshop was held at the beautiful Shaka resort. The setting was outside, with a cool breeze, and a shot walk to the beach under trees where the monkeys swing. A small group of 6 participants was comfortable. I attended with my significant other as part of a surf/yoga/mindfulness retreat.

I'm relatively new to mindfulness. No preparation or previous knowledge was required. This workshop was hosted by Michelle Wharton, a psychologist. An introduction to the neuroscience provided context and validity. Identifying my evolving values and prioritizing them in my life was achievable with her guidance. Understanding my intrinsic barriers and develop and practice tools to overcome them. I was energized at the completion of the course, and continue to incorporate these techniques into my day.

I'm please to have participated in this retreat. This was a perfect complement to surfing and yoga. I attended this with my honey, but would have found it useful independently, as well. I would highly recommend this experience. This retreat was a good time to become recommitted to living an intentional life.

Jackie thank you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the week with you and Evan and I'm stoked to hear that you had both a relaxing and productive week! Plus I love hearing when people are able to incorporate the tools and techniques they've learned into their day-to-day home routine. I wish you all the best for living an intentional life and hope to share a wave or another epic sunset with you again in the future. Michelle.
