Wanderlust Festivals bring together individuals from all over the world to form a community around shared values. The founders of Wanderlust are Jeff Krasno with his wife Schuyler Grant and their beloved friend Sean Hoess. The community has grown based on the organization’s pillars of mindful living.
There is something comforting and reassuring when you are in an environment surrounded by like-minded individuals. There is a sense of joy, security, and connectedness when you realize that others share the same frustrations, questions, interests, and values that you do. This sense of connectedness is what makes the Wanderlust Festivals so incredible.
The term wanderlust means a strong, innate desire to travel. It is more important than ever to maintain a positive attitude, inner peace, and to feel a part of something beautiful, inspiring and energizing.
Wanderlust Pillars of Mindful Living
Wanderlust Festivals highlight the components of mindful living including personal spirituality, yoga, the arts, organics, environmentalism, and conscious consumerism. Check out more information on Zero Waste Living and explore healthy recipes and ideas to create a more mindful relationship with food.
The festivals provide attendees with talented and diverse leaders, speakers, instructors, chefs, and musicians. For anyone that wants to connect with nature, explore new ideas, make new friends, dance like no one is watching, the Wanderlust Festivals are waiting for your arrival.
Yoga and Meditation Classes
The Yoga and Meditation Classes accommodate all styles and levels and are taught by world class instructors. Personally, I would like to try the stand-up paddle boarding as it looks challenging and invigorating all at the same time! The goal of the yoga and meditation classes is to keep the mind and body moving whether you choose a relaxing yin class or an exciting aerial yoga class.
Music is at the Hear of the Experience
Wanderlust Festival music can be heard throughout the festival during heart pounding yoga classes or the soft acoustic sounds accompanying mountaintop meditations. Main stage performances will showcase both entertainers that you are familiar with and new artists that will inspire and entertain you. One of my favorites is Trevor Hall singing To Zion.
Unleash Your Inner Explorer
If you are ready to unleash your inner explorer, then you may join one of the many activities offered at the Wanderlust festivals including trail runs, mountain meditations, peaceful sunset hikes or downhill mountain bike adventures. There is something to do for everyone, but remember, as they say at wanderlust, always allow yourself wander, because life’s most beautiful moments come in the spaces.
Speak Easy Talks
The Speak Easy Talks will give you an opportunity to hear some of the most famous thought leaders of our time during intimate, informal lectures. These discussions will inspire you with ideas on various topics ranging from holistic health, progressive politics, personal empowerment, and community betterment. The lectures will challenge your current way of thinking and bring intuitive, innovative ideas to the discussion.
As the mind and body are busy absorbing the newfound friendships, and exploring activities, you are going to need some healthy food to keep all this fun going.The Wanderlust Festivals obtains their food from local food vendors that lovingly pick it by hand. The staff at Wanderlust serves organic family-style meals which are an awesome way to end the day.
