Wanderlust 108

I just stumbled across this and I am ridiculously excited!!! 

WHAT IS WANDERLUST 108?

Wanderlust 108 is a triathlon unlike any you’ve ever known. This “mindful triathlon” brings three events together in your favorite local park: a 5k run, an outdoor yoga experience, and a guided meditation — but with a twist. Unlike most triathlons, we place community above competition, inner peace above power, and self-awareness above strength. We prefer slow food to fast run times. For us, winning is measured in laughs shared and new friends made.

And unlike many events offering yoga and meditation, we combine our practice with a whole lot of fun. While we’re pretty sure you’ll be challenged during the day, we are equally sure you’ll have a great time doing so. From live bands and DJs on our main stage, to lawn activities like hooping, slacklining and acroyoga, to our local food and craft vendors, there’s a lot to do when you’re not on your mat.

Afropunk

I was fortunate enough to attend Afropunk yesterday with one of my friends….I felt so at home.   I want to call it a convention of kindred spirits because the atmosphere of the event was one of universal love. You come as you are and you are loved for it ❤ The strong sense of unity and black pride could not be missed.

The weather was wonderful, the people were beautiful(physically and spiritually) and the performances were amazinggggggggg.  I don’t know how I missed this festival before now(as it’s been happening for ten years) but I’m ultra grateful that I found it ❤

saw this billboard on my way there, what really put me in extra love was if you look closely written subtly under the word gratitude is a definition of courage.

“Courage [kurij, kuhr-] the quality of mind that enables a person to face danger with confidence, resolution and firm control of oneself”

*I didn’t get any good pics of the performances–I was far back and really more concerned with being fully present in the experience but here are the few that I did take 🙂
