A Weekend of Wanderlust Oahu on Turtle Bay Resort

by: Evan Fa

What is life truly about? Is it about being happy? Or is it about finding purpose? Wanderlust, a festival dedicated to helping individuals find their “true north,” is set to re-visit Turtle Bay within the coming days, from Thursday, February 23rd through Sunday, February 26th. Each year on the resort, Wanderlust draws together a deep reservoir of “yoga and meditation instructors, musical performers, speakers, artists and chefs for a transformational retreat” allowing attendees the chance “to explore and connect with [their] life’s purpose.”


While many may not consider themselves a yogi, or even tried yoga for that matter, yoga does provide some amazing benefits to its practitioners. One can improve his or her breathing, increase strength and flexibility, regulate metabolism and thus weight, as well as help heal an injury or even increase athletic performance. In this sense, yoga can be for everyone. That being said, there are tons of ways to practice yoga, and Wanderlust is a great way to get a start at it.


Whether one refers to it as meditation, priming, or introspective thinking, many of the most successful, high performance individuals practice some sort of meditation ritual on a regular basis. Whether one presently does it or not, with the long list of trainers that will be in attendance this weekend, this is a great opportunity to give it a go.


As the cliche says, “Music is the language of the soul.” It truly is. It has the ability to affect one’s deepest feelings and emotions, for good or for bad. Wanderlust has a long list of local to national artists on tap to provide the good … a renewed soundtrack to one’s life. Check the listings – List of Musical Artists at Wanderlust – to see if any of these tickle your fancy.


Opening one’s ears, heart and soul is a recipe for finding inspiration, especially from experts that have studied and practice their purpose. Wanderlust has a long list of speakers that will inform and motivate attendees to live better and aim their lives toward that “true north.”

Food and Art

“We are what we eat.” So food is of greatest importance. At Wanderlust, chefs and vendors will provide tasty Organic options that will put attendees in closest proximity with nature and their true north.

Transformation comes one step and a time. When one consciously decides to make a difference in his or her own life, he or she is better able to embrace the change that comes as a result of it. Wanderlust is a wonderful opportunity to tap into a side that is often times overlooked or undervalued—one’s purpose.

For those traveling to Wanderlust from around Oahu, the outer islands, or elsewhere, Turtle Bay Rentals on the Turtle Bay Resort offers luxurious options for any Wanderlust attendee to stay. The various condos accommodate smaller and even larger numbers of travelers all within footsteps of the activities going down. Feel free to look at the various condos and availability for the specific festival dates.
