After getting the chance to visit British Colombia with the Wanderlust Festival, I realize could happily live in BC. I love Canada, Whistler in particular. It’s like saying I could happily live in Hawaii. I’m privileged to see a place as amazing as this. Arriving at the Vancouver Airport impressed me with enormous saltwater fish tanks, atriums, native sculptures, and sparkling fountains among the usual vendors. I found Vancouver clean, welcoming, and maneuverable.
Passing the city by to the North on BC 99 (Sea to Sky Highway), my awe for this sacred land became deeper. The jagged mountains looked to me out of the China Sea yet they’re different in their Pacific Northwestern lusciousness. I loved being in the Canadian Coastal Mountains, the turquoise colors of the sea, glacial lakes and springs, the respect paid by communities to renewable resources, how safe being there felt, the kindness of the people, and the vital energy of the thriving nature all around.
I stepped into a new role temporarily at this Wanderlust Festival (Yoga Experience) and enjoyed the change of pace preparing the yoga rooms and helping hold sacred space throughout the weekend with respect to climate, lighting, capacity, collaborating with decor and audio team, etc. I learned a lot about communication, diligence, and patience and I truly had a blast.
Here are some pictures from my trip. Sending you love. Namaste.
