Wanderlust Gives Thanks
As we prepare our best season yet in 2012, we find ourselves incredibly grateful for all that we've created together. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all of the students, teachers, studios, musicians, performers, and partners who have helped build Wanderlust into the positive force that it is today. Wanderlust has grown bigger than any of us individually; it's a community, a movement, and without all your support it wouldn't exist. On Dec. 6, we look forward to unveiling what we have in store for you for 2012 with our official announcement of new dates & destinations.

I am grateful to have found one life where there is no separation between play and work, friends and colleagues, what I am doing and what I should be doing. This kind of life keeps me engrossed in the moment -- in the flow of life -- and I am thankful to be able to live this way. - Jeff Krasno, Wanderlust Co-founder
Gratitude is one of the greatest healing emotions for bringing your brainwaves and heart rhythms into unison. It can melt the toughest situations and heighten the ordinary moments to profound realization. Gratitude opens the chambers of our heart so we can really feel while we are alive - our beloved, our kids, friends, each morsel, where we rest our head, the beauty, the transforming difficulties, our teacher's grace. The passing moment is the soil of gratitude that helps us wake up and appreciate what we have now before it is gone. That is why Thanksgiving is such a favorite holiday. As the earth goes into its fertile retreat, let us take time to remember, celebrate and taste the core of all that we love. - Shiva Rea
When I count my blessings over the last year I always consider who and what helped me to know myself more clearly, including that which has helped me to see my shadow because it empowers me to more effectively transform myself. Even some of the painful events of the year can be seen as gateways to connect to the very essence of my heart. I see all of these as blessings, as the revelatory power of Grace, as the principle of the Guru. I give thanks to all of my teachers, to my students, to the full spectrum of my friends, and also to the challenging people in my life. - John Friend
Gratitude is a state of being. When I'm in the state of gratitude, I'm in my heart, I'm focused, I'm open, and ready for everything. I'm able to give so much more of my listening and my attention, and I feel heard and received. When I'm grateful, I feel connected to myself, my kid and especially my parents. Plus Dr. Emoto has proven that the sentiments of Gratitude and Love together create the most symmetrical and beautiful water molecules(!). Consistent levels of gratitude might be my proudest feat this year. - Elena Brower
Gratitude to the sounds and music of Nature that influence and touch us all. Rivers, birds, wind and rain are all part of Earth's eternal soundtrack that offers us a bridge to our ancestors and to those who will follow. These infinite sounds are the root of all music from Mozart to Tuvan throat singing and create a universal language, love and connection between all beings. - Garth Stevenson
I am eternally grateful to all the people who have rallied around the Global Seva Challenge over the past 4 years. Because of their commitment and efforts, we have raised over 2 million dollars, built a school, birthing center, halfway house, as well as many other projects worldwide. Their commitment to service continues to be an inspiration to me and motivates my own vision of social outreach as a way towards unity and peace, and for that I am forever grateful. Blessings to all. - Seane Corn
I'm grateful for all the ways that my yoga practice continues to inspire and amaze me. The global yoga community is a growing presence of peace on the planet, I give thanks every day for all the yogis, students, teachers, artists and musicians who are helping to usher in this emerging renaissance of Love and Spiritual Understanding. Peace. - MC Yogi
