finding my true north – Wanderlust

Isn’t it wonderful when something completely out of the ordinary happens?

I just won a ticket to Wanderlust!!

For those that aren’t aware the Wanderlust events are:

“A one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and wine makers, and much, much more — all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty.”

Check out this wicked little video package of last years Wanderlust here in Whistler. It certainly wet my appetite for what’s to come!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when i opened up the email, I thought have they got this right? I hadn’t even entered a competition! No it was right. Just another example of why I work for the best company in the world – lululemon athletica. Surprising and delighting with a beautiful gift, expecting nothing in return. (Turns out some of my colleagues got a free pass too which makes it even sweeter to share the experience with my beautiful team! yay!).

Wanderlust has been something I’ve viewed from a far in awe. It’s not yet in Australia, and I would see videos, images, and hear amazing stories from this far away festival, it all sounded too good to be true. I can only imagine the sense of community formed by so many people gathering together all just wanting to connect, to love, to grow and to practice together.

It has been a crazy busy couple of weeks for me, lots of travelling to the city for work, late nights, early starts, long journeys. I’m looking forward to stopping to pause. Stopping the busy-ness to re-connect to nature, to my breath, and to my spirit which always shines brighter after practicing.

My formula is pretty simple:

NATURE  +  YOGA  =  BLISS  : )

It’s time to hit the re-boot button and refresh my soul.

I have signed up to three of the most renowned international yogis – Seane Corn, Ryan Leier and Eoin Finn. What a blissful day it will be. I have had the pleasure of meeting Ryan and Eoin previously, they are two of the most beautiful human beings I’ve come across. If they are a small taste of the clientele this weekend, it’s going to be an incredible festival.

I am full of gratitude for this opportunity.

I look forward to filling you in on my wonderful Wanderlust experience.

If anyone needs me tomorrow, I’ll be on my mat.

namaste.

Happiness. It’s such a fickle, fleeting, unpredictable thing to aim for. . How do you define happiness? . Exploring what happiness actually means to you, peeling away the layers to find the underlying roots of your joy - now that’s a more empowering path to travel. . Let’s aim for self compassion, for love, for that freeing feeling of flow. Not “happiness”. . Aim for something authentic, something real. . Then allow yourself to actually FEEL IT. 👊🏼✨
These sunny spring days have me dreaming of the radiant summer that will soon be upon us (this image is from my recent Bali retreat! ☀️) . But for now, I’m trying to be fully present to the current moment. Not wishing it to move any quicker. . Noticing & appreciating the blossoms opening, to the crisp air on my skin, to the wind circulating around. Welcoming this shift in energy & the growth & expansion of new life. . Oh spring, a big warm welcome to you! 🌸🌱🌸
