Live Event Testimonials

Testimonial from Kash Rangan

“I have had the honor of working with Mitch as a colleague and client while forging a friendship over 20+ years. I believe I have a unique perspective as a result of these experiences. I choose my friends and influencers carefully and feel glad that Mitch is one of those trusted few. He has proven himself time and again. Mitch is intelligent, articulate, passionate, committed and genuine. It’s been amazing to watch his transformation from a Wall Street analyst and hedge fund manager to a mind guru. Given our common interest in this topic I have had the chance to follow his work, thought process and evolution very closely and to benefit from it. His cross disciplinary experience brings a very unique approach to busy working professionals. He can relate to business professionals and regular folks equally adeptly. His life experiences have molded him into an expert on the mind and mindfulness that can be applied in a business setting. We are working on getting him speaking engagements at our firm. Our industry will benefit meaningfully from recognizing and paying close attention to the perspectives he has developed since leaving the industry. I highly recommend Mitch for companies that want to invest in their most important assets: their employees; helping them meet their core needs so they can work better, more happily, healthily and ultimately, more profitably.”

Rob Ruple Testimonial “I have had the distinct opportunity to know Mitch Swergold, President and Founder of Self-Mastery Gym, INC and Swergold Advisory for the better part of 15 years. I came to know Mitch first as a client who was a diligent and accomplished Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager, then as a good friend and now as a teacher. Mitch was like most busy Wall Street professionals driven, analytical, preoccupied, and skeptical of most disciplines outside of the field of business and economics. However, his intellectual curiosity driven by the need for greater self-fulfillment and enlightenment beyond monetary achievement took him on an amazing decade long study of the mind. Mitch has developed a comprehensive program that combines the latest elements of science, meditation, and mindfulness that busy working professionals can not only apply to their daily lives, but that also translates into better employee morale and profitability for any company large or small over the long term. Also, Mitch’s unique experience, perspective and his presentation relates so well to the many pressures, anxieties, and daily stress in our business lives because he lived it and now provides another perspective for personal growth. Admittedly I too was skeptical about studying the field of mindfulness and its positive effects, but after spending time listening to Mitch and witnessing his genuine passion around the subject and the effectiveness of his program I am convinced. I would highly recommend Mitch and the Self-Mastery Gym, Inc program.”

“I recently had the awesome privilege of attending a presentation called “Transform Your Body + Mind With One Simple Scientific Strategy,” given by Mitch Swergold. This presentation really helped me in being able to conceptualize how trauma affects me and those around me.

I am a mental health counselor and music therapist working in substance abuse rehab and I can personally attest to the power of the techniques Mitch gave us. I’ve used many mindfulness techniques with my clients, so I’m pretty well versed in many of the techniques that are effective. However, Mitch has a very clear and concise way of describing what I often struggle to put into words. His presentation helped clarify and put into perspective the effects of trauma on our lives. For instance, I often use a guided imagery experience with my clients where I have them “float their thoughts away on a cloud to increase relaxation.” I liked that Mitch stated that actually if we are to practice the art of non-resistance, we are not to push away or resist those thoughts, but rather observe the thoughts as they are without judgment.

In the past week since attending his presentation, I’ve used the image of the bear that is tremoring from shock that Mitch showed us to demonstrate to my clients what happens when our bodies can’t release repressed trauma and feelings; we need to find what helps us release those emotions in a healthy, cathartic way, without the use of drugs. This image proved to be an effective catalyst for helping them see what they do with their own bodies when they are restless i.e., fidgeting, wringing their hands, bobbing their feet/legs up and down etc.

Additionally, I started using this phrase which Mitch gave me as a means to help my clients conceptualize the importance of community and connection, two factors which are often missing in the lives of those who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction: “We can cope on our own, but we heal in relationship.” He stressed the importance of community if we are to heal, and this
really resonated with me, and I can see how it is resonating with my clients.

I highly recommend Mitch to any organization, especially those where the environment and demands are intense. As Mitch says, “everyone needs this” and personally, I feel he does a great job of delivering the very information we all so badly need to function better, avoid unhealthy numbing strategies, heal, and live happier, more productive lives. Thanks, Mitch, for a great class!”

He does such an eloquent job in channeling this beautiful message of happiness through how and why our experiences work to shape our realities, and how and what to do to overcome those obstacles. I enjoy his teaching style and natural ability to seamlessly convey his message, while making everyone watching feel at ease and comfortable. His experience, authenticity and knowledge are without a doubt respected by all who are blessed to know him. I highly recommend connecting with him.”

“The classes that I have been to thus far have each imparted valuable and immediately actionable insights. Mitch does a great job of relating philosophies and abstract principles to real life. In particular I have enjoyed hearing stories from long terms students of how they have applied what they have learned in class, and how much it has helped them. I highly recommend this meetup and Mitch – he is extremely knowledgeable and very easy and wonderful to talk to.”

-Ana Bozovic, Miami, FL

“Highly recommend these meetings to anyone who is looking for a piece of mind. Friendly, interactive and relaxing atmosphere. Mitch is doing a great job interpreting the complex methods of meditation while guiding great practical exercises in class. Participants who attend meetings for some time see a remarkable reduction in their stress level and increased ability to withstand anxiety on a daily basis. Looking forward to more classes.”

-Alina Sinayuk, Miami Beach, FL

“Mitch, thank you so much for last night’s class. Someone in the class said you were like Tony Robbins and I second that but I think you’re even more compassionate and kind. More professionals should go to this because I truly believe you can attain a higher level of success through it!”

“What a great class! Mitch did a great job explaining very difficult and important material. He walked us through it, answered questions, we did a meditation, which was very helpful and he explained ideas that would have been very challenging without the guidance of someone with as much experience as he has. Thanks Mitch!”

-Fabiola Rincon, Miami, FL

“Really enjoy your talks, Mitch! Always very insightful and full of energy. Specifically your talks about subconcious patterns and helping identify them to overcome obstacles in the way of true happiness and self-fulfillment. For almost a year now I had had the pleasure of being a student of your wisdom and I enjoy our discourse about the mind and relationships. Thanks for the wealth of knowledge you have shared and I’m confident you will continue to help others also on the journey of self-discovery and mastery.”
