Wanderlust Festival is on a roll. Its core mission -- creating community around mindful living -- has taken root in communities across the globe, allowing rapid growth in locations from North America to Australasia. Wanderlust's expanded 2014 Summer schedule offers new events, a deeper talent roster, unparalleled outdoor adventures, additional pre-festival workshops, an innovative 200-hour yoga teacher training program, and an expansive new website to tie it all together.
Kicking off its sixth season, Wanderlust continues to lead with experiences that blend yoga and mindfulness practice with travel and adventure, fostering a large and fast-growing community around the world. Festivalgoers revel in breathtaking resort locations filled with extraordinary natural beauty, participating in yoga, music, meditation, organic food and wine, inspirational Speakeasy lectures, paddleboarding, hiking, biking, and new this year, chi running and parkour - an intense style of freerunning with a holistic twist.
"Wanderlust is this container of amazing experiences and ideas. We pull from a huge breadth of talent --- from thought leaders to slackliners, from yoga masters to paddleboarders," says the co-founder, Jeff Krasno. "There are little gems of wisdom and inspiration for people to discover and to take home with them. Wanderlust is both a fun-filled community experience and something much deeper - it provides a path for people to find their true north."
In an increasingly connected, gadget-obsessed world, Wanderlust serves as an escape for people looking to disconnect from the virtual world and reconnect with themselves, nature and a like-minded community. "Over the past couple of years, we've seen a growth of intentional gatherings as diverse as Burning Man, obstacle races and food festivals," says Krasno. "The larger trend is that people are thirsting for real interaction. Wanderlust, with its beautiful settings, community focus and challenging mind/body program, provides a great opportunity for folks to power down and get back in touch."
Lust Is Everywhere!
This year's festival locations include Stratton Mountain (June 19-22), a new Rocky Mountain home at Aspen Snowmass (July 3-6), a return to Wanderlust's original birthplace, Squaw Valley (July 17-20), an extended 5-day event in Whistler, BC, Canada (July 31 - August 4), and a newly expanded festival at Mont Tremblant (August 21-24). Outside of North America, the festival arrives down under for the first time in Australia (Wanderlust Melbourne + Sydney; March 10 & March 30) and New Zealand (Wanderlust Auckland; March 23). Wanderlust is also set to return to the Hawaii's shores later this month (Wanderlust O'ahu; February 27-March 2).
