The Changing Faces of Wellness Panel at Wellspring


I have been fortunate to be able to share my message at several Wanderlust Festivals across the country. Wellspring, in Palm Springs, was my favorite Wanderlust festival so far. This festival was more about the evolution of wellness and I was asked to speak on a panel, “The Changing Faces of Wellness” with some incredible people.

See! I wasn’t joking… these people are amazing human beings who are doing such important work within their communities. We had a much needed conversation about the evolution of wellness and how we can each do our part to make wellness accessible and available to all people. I am so grateful to know these people an the many others I have met at Wanderlust festivals over the years. Change is on the horizon and we all have to do our part to create it! Hope you were inspired by this conversation.
