Not All Who Wander Are Lusty (But Most of Them Are)

alignJ. R. R. Tolkien wrote: “Not all those who wander are lost.”

In fact, I believe that those who wander have found something very valuable.

Especially those who find themselves at a Wanderlust festival.

As you know, these wonderful weekends are dedicated to days packed full of yoga, farm-to-table meals, gifted musicians, and talks from some of the most respected thought leaders in the green, sustainable, and health-focused communities. I’m heading to Colorado’s Wanderlust soon to share some talks, yoga, and good times with new friends.

I don’t know if I’m more excited to balance your hormones, log serious hours on my yoga mat or to soak up the amazing live music. Talk about a good dilemma – I’m practically doing the happy-dance right now!

It’s a jam for the ladies and the superstars
I could leave the whole set but never go too far
(Do it superstar)
(Jam on, jam on)
If you’re from wherever to wherever you are.
– Moby (he’ll be there!), Jam for the Ladies

I’ll be talking about how to de-stress, de-age, and love up your hormones…but the whole weekend is about creating healthier relationships with our bodies and our environments. And, oh yes, jamming to some totally epic music.

If you haven’t been to a Wanderlust festival, I strongly suggest trying one out. You’ll leave refreshed and inspired, full of new ideas and excited about the connections made with the wonderful people who attend these festivals. Your cup of oxytocin will run over. It’s like a mini-detox for the mind. I’d love to see you! As East Forest (also gonna be there!) says,

It could be that we’re all musicians
just singing our way through life together.
– East Forest, 10 Laws

Now, I want to hear from you.

Do you have any hormone-balancing trips planned this summer?

What do you have planned that raises your oxytocin, the hormone of love and bonding?

Have you been to Wanderlust? If so, what was your favorite part?
