Burned Out

Imagine you answer that inner voice that’s been calling you to leave your Island of Burnout and rediscover what you are.

Yes, burnout, I call it wipeout, is an epidemic and people from every profession come to our program because they don’t know what to do. They’re frustrated and tired.

I know you because as a physician I’ve lived those endless days and I beat the burnout monster. Yes, I went surfing, completed a doctorate in leadership, and wrote The Surfer’s Journey textbook and program that teaches people like you how to begin again.

Can you hear it? Grab your board and start living.

Costa Rica Surf Retreats

Imagine you stuff some clothes into a backpack and travel to an island where no one knows you and you’re free to wander and reignite the imagination that drove every day of your childhood. I call it your natural nature.

This Surfer’s Journey retreat immersion mimics in real time The Surfer’s Journey world of Dr. John Foster, a burned out doctor who dares to take a mythical inner journey to rediscover what he is.

From mentors, to surfing, quad mountain trips, to lying under the Costa Rican stars, this experience and research based program transforms burned out, wiped out, lost souls into the hero’s and leaders they dreamed they would be.

That’s you. Start packing.

Transformational Hero And Leader

Imagine you return from the island and people ask, “What happened to you?”  And you smile and say, “I went surfing.”

We use the ten research based principles of surfing to train and develop transformational heroes: Fiery Leaders who drive a burning cause and teach others to do the same.

Understand that people have been waiting for and need the fire you’ve discovered: I call it the perfect wave of bliss.  And once they watch you carve your name on the waves, they’ll know you’re the one who will never give up on them.

See you on the island… and bring some surf wax!

Find Your Perfect Wave

Yes, it’s a metaphor for what you should be and do in this crazy life that lasts 29,200 days. It means rediscovering that awe and mystery in every sunrise and paddling out as the hero that transforms the culture and world for the good of others. No burnout, just balance, purpose and unrelenting energy.

“I am here to lead you beyond the threshold of the meaningless.”
