Wellness might be a state of being, a movement, the future of self-care and the way individuals educate themselves to move towards good physical and mental health in for their futures. We are fortunate to be able to celebrate wellness with festivals that nourish, support and celebrate self-care. Wanderlust Thredbo is “a four day celebration of mindful living”, what a blessing to live in these times to have the facilities, mentors and ability to do just that.
Wanderlust Thredbo as a festival has an extensive schedule of music, activities, motivational speakers, nutritionists and other healthful people in their related industry to come together and create an experience that enables participants to go forth in their lives enables, empowered and informed.
Long after the festival packs up, Wanderlust participants receive meaningful and relevant links via email to continue their healthful journey to be educated and self-aware. The festival is not an end in itself, in this way, but the beginning of being inducted into an enriching family of people who come together to pursue knowledge, healing and self-awareness. To examine one’s motives and experiences is to move forward positively and create ripple effects on our family and friends that are beneficial and nourishing rather than negative or damaging.
