Wanderlust is back with its renowned and famed wellness events with a new and exciting concept, True North. Hosted by celebrity chef and entrepreneur Sarah Todd, True North will take place this month in Sydney and Melbourne with a glorious lineup of musicians, teachers, thought shifters and artists for an afternoon of yoga, music, meditation and inspirational stories. With some incredible guest speakers in the mix too, you’re in for a truly uplifting and inspiring celebration of all things wonderful. 

With an overwhelming amount of fabulous attractions and stalls, we thought we’d highlight a few of our favourite events we’re hanging out for:

Meditation & Sound Vibrations With Laura Poole

Laura Poole is a Vedic meditation leader, teacher and entrepreneur who has inspired countless people in this space over the past decade teaching people about the importance of prioritising mental and physical health and how it can really make a difference in the world. For this special occasion, she will be collaborating with soulful singer and sound healer Benny Holloway to take you on an unforgettable guided storytelling journey of meditation that will help you reconnect with your highest self.

Yoga Flow & DJ Set With Tahl Rinsky and Nick Littlemore

Chris Hemsworth's  yoga teacher Tahl Rinsky will be closing out the stunning event with a unique breath-focused yoga flow suitable to all levels with Pnau frontman DJ Nick Littlemore mixing up the perfect ambient electronic soundtrack. This consuming sensory experience will leave you in an absolute trance and keep your spirit buzzing long after you get home.

Cultural Storytelling With Adam Goodes

AFL Legend and Australian of the Year Adam Goodes is incredibly passionate about raising awareness around racism and the empowerment of the next generation of Indigenous Australians. We’ll be lucky enough to hear all about his own personal journey of cultural identity, connection to country and anti-racism in a very special and intimate session.

An Acoustic Session With Emmanuel Jal

Emmanuel is a South Sudanese-Canadian hip-hop artist who uses his voice to speak of peace and reconciliation based on his frightening experiences as a South Sudan child soldier. He has since gone on to become a political activist and peace ambassador, recently releasing his own autobiography War Child which provides a horrific insight into the atrocities of child slavery and the effects of war on third world countries. Emmanuel will be using his melodies to take us on a journey through his life and experiences that will captivate and enchant his audiences. 

If this wasn't enough, there is even a never-ending range of fabulous curated market stalls where you can nab some gorgeous arts, treats and gifts from local creatives while supporting local businesses. There'll also be plenty of live music,  interactive wellness displays and experts ready to help you find your very own True North.
