My name is Faryal Michaud. I am a Board Certified Palliative Care Physician, Mindfulness Teacher and a certified Professional Life Coach. I have made it my mission to take away human suffering even by 5 %. 

You don't have to have a serious illness for me to want to help you. 


I want you to live your full exceptional life experience today


When I started my podcast, my blog and my coaching, I always knew that I would host a one of a kind retreat in Hawaii.


But, COVID had other plans for me. 


So in the year 2022, I am starting my inaugural yearly retreat.


This will be the best thing you ever did for yourself. 


*I already have clients that have signed up for this event, so the spots are limited, if you know you are coming, this is the time to sign up. 


If not now then when?

If not you then who?


"I know you're tired but come,

this is the way."



Wait, but why the North Shore?


I am going to be honest with you:


For the longest time, Oahu was not my favorite Hawaiian Island. While I know that they are all beautiful, I always associated Oahu (and Honolulu) with Waikiki, and that was not my idea of peace and serenity.  

I am not a fan of highly touristy and crowded spaces. 

My father owned a travel agency and as much as I have had a love of traveling, I have also had an equal love of avoiding highly trafficked destinations: always making every effort of being in the nature if I can make it happen. 

It is my pleasure to have you come to the one and only Turtle Bay Resort

There is a reason so many of popular movies that are meant to be timeless were filmed here. 


The beauty of this location, all 1300 acres of it, is truly breathtaking.  


"If you want to go fast, go alone.

If you want to go far, go together."

African Proverb 

There is nothing more powerful than a sense of community.


Connection, above all, is what we need to feel recharged, replenished and refurbished if you will.


Gathering in a place of beauty with the intention of living our best life in the here and now is the gift that I want you to learn to give yourself day after day.

If you don't love the life you have today, you will never have a sense of peace and clarity.

What does it mean to love what is and live in the here and now?

Let me help guide you to have a magical experience that will teach you how to create the life of purpose.

Let me help you by taking care of your WHOLE being. 

"Be good to yourself, 'cause nobody else has the power to make you happy."

That's one of my favorite lyrics of all time.

It's by George Michael.


Time and time again, I have learned that we reach out to the outside world to be happy, feel happy, and live in a certain way. 

Let me help you write your next chapter: one that empowers you to learn to be happy NOW. 


You will leave your phone at home like I do when I travel. If not, you can leave it in your hotel room. Turtle Bay has the most beautiful grounds for you to explore on foot, on a horse, in the ocean, or in a helicopter. Nothing centers and grounds us as much as being in the nature, feeling the fresh air and walking barefoot in the sand. Make this the best gift you will give your soul.

World Class Yoga

Join Ami and Gen, two of the most accomplished mindful instructors and compassionate human beings, as they lead you through daily live sessions of Yin and Flow yoga along with guided and iRest meditation. * Sessions will be beachside- weather permitting.

Indulge in Luxury

A great gift to all your senses. I have been a fan of the Turtle Bay Resort for as long as I have lived here. They have recently remodeled this beautiful hotel. Feel absolute luxury of staying in a resort that is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the place that is is located.

Priscilla Vu, MD

"I've had such a great experience with the group coaching sessions. They have very relevant topics towards living a more joyful and intentional life. I learn so much from others getting coached as well as we share many of the same underlying concerns. It has been an eye opening experience. Dr. Michaud is such a beautiful personality and really great at guiding you through ways to improve your mindset. "

Beril Buluku, MD

"Group coaching with Dr. Michaud has been amazing. She has a special talent in coaching along with a deep wisdom and a lot of compassion. She has helped make fundamental leaps in my time management, emotional eating and most importantly awareness of unintentional working models. I am very grateful. "

Kim Kaffenbarger, MD

"I almost didn't take the leap of joining Dr. Michaud for a year's worth of coaching- what a mistake that would have been!

"Living Intentionally" has been a life changing experience for me. As a physician, woman, mom and wife, setting aside the time and the money for myself was a daunting commitment. It has turned out to be the best investment I have ever made! I am living my life more intentionally, and I have a new sense of calm and strength in my life.

I am also living my bucket list NOW- how fun!

The coaching has extended to every aspect of my life, and my interactions with family, peers and patients have improved because of the insight I am gaining into my inner thoughts and feelings. They yoga sessions are unlike any yoga I have taken in the past, and the instructors are the best that I have ever experienced. The journey with Faryal, Jen and Ami is a beautiful one, as you transform mind, body, and soul!"
