The World’s Only Mindful Triathlon
Wanderlust 108 is a field day for your inner child. Hold the plastic trophy, because we have better prizes: a full day of self-awareness and inner peace with a vibrant community. Community instead of competition? There’s nothing better than that.
5K RUN – Part 1
This is a 5K (+/-) your way, so don’t sweat it. Or do. Run or walk, prance or skip, stroll, or strut—we don’t mind. Just make it to the finish line.
YOGA – Part 2
75 minutes of DJ-powered yoga will get you in the mood to flow. That’s the Wanderlust way. Whether it’s your first or 500th time on you mat, you’ll find your true rhythm.
MEDITATION – Part 3
Bliss out in a group meditation to clear your mind, relax your body, and complete the mindful triathlon.
The day doesn’t stop there. Stop by our Kula Market with local vendors, head to your scheduled activity, and drop by a bonus activity or two, should your heart desire.
Ready to experience more genuine connection and profound intimacy in all your relationships?
Join Ben Ralston & Kara-Leah Grant for a one-day retreat into the heart of relationship.
Come & sit in a circle and excavate that which blocks intimacy.
Learn the tools with which authentic intimacy can be cultivated (spoiler alert: the tools are unconditional love, and radical honesty); and practice these tools within the circle!
Working in a circle means sitting together and sharing the truth of who we really are. It means taking off the masks, finally, and getting to the bottom of what this journey of life is really all about.
A powerful combination of practical tools and exercises, energy work, trauma healing, ‘talking stick’ work, Yoga, movement, breath work, and deep relaxation make these circle sessions a fast-track personal development goldmine!
Between them KL and Ben have decades of experience in this field, and having walked this path themselves they now come back to share what they have found with you!
In the circle we share our hearts and souls with each other and always find that actually we are all one and the same – that we have the same dreams, the same needs, and the same desires.
Ben expertly heals whatever trauma / blockages comes up, and Kara-Leah holds space and presence with truth and love. The result is nothing short of transformative.
As this is a power-house five hour session, we will focus on the healing work and take movement & energy breaks as necessary. We will also take a short afternoon tea break – make sure you eat a good brunch before you come!
You will leave this one-day retreat with a taste of new sense of self, heart-centered and empowered, and some practical tools for cultivating intimacy in all your relationships.
Plus you’ll be supported and cared for in your post-retreat experience as a Heart of Tribe member. You’ll have access to our Secret Facebook Group.
Date and Time: Sunday 26th November, 11:00-16:00pm
Early Bird Price $118 (before 19th November)
