Costa Women Meet Michele Schalin

Formerly in Valencia with a plan to return is Michele Schalin. On her book tour she has been bringing her mindful metamorphosis to the world. Read her story.

Why Spain?

Transforming my language skills was my driving force for relocating to Spain. The moment I set foot in this enchanting country in 2016, I instantly fell head over heels in love.

And where are you now?

From Oct. 2017 to Feb. 2021, Valencia, Spain became my home, and soon it will be again by 2025.

During my recent book tour in October 2023, I had the pleasure of visiting Valencia, Barcelona and Malaga again. My book, “Mindful Metamorphosis: A Compassionate Guide to Inner Transformation,” garnered tremendous attention and support during this memorable journey.

Top Three Reasons to Move to Valencia

1. Beaches that will take your breath away. Valencia’s beautiful beaches that will leave you mesmerised. They also have a very active rowing and sailing community.

2. The best of both worlds. Valencia offers the safety and warmth of a smaller town, combined with the diverse cultural activities of a larger city. You’ll experience a close-knit community where everyone feels like a neighbor, while enjoying a wide array of cultural events, festivals, and culinary experiences.

3. Amazing diversity! Valencia is a melting pot of people from all corners of the globe. Immerse yourself in a vibrant and multicultural community, fostering connections and a variety of perspectives.

What was the biggest challenge for your move?

I ventured into a whole new world, leaving everything behind. Armed with only basic Spanish skills, I faced the daunting challenge of overcoming the language barrier.

Do you have any advice for Women thinking about making the move?

What brings meaning to you? 

I experience true bliss in my life through meaningful connections. From engaging conversations to spontaneous singing and dancing, I embrace every moment.

I love friendship circles, nature hikes, meditation, and yoga to cultivate a deeper sense of connection.

I am always seeking opportunities to raise our collective consciousness with love and higher vibrational energy.

In addition to running a successful website services company for the past two decades, my true passion lies in my company Mindful Metamorphosis and my book “Mindful Metamorphosis: A Compassionate Guide to Inner Transformation.

I am dedicated to educating, guiding, and supporting individuals in improving their mental fitness and transforming their lives. Using scientifically proven holistic practices, we can thrive in today’s challenging world.
