The Speakeasy is Wanderlust Festival's unique lecture series on subjects pertaining to the mindful life. With inspiring and insightful offerings from a wide range of presenters (including prominent yoga teachers, wellness industry leaders, authors, musicians, and more), the Speakeasy is just that - a casual experience where presenters can "speak easily". These are not stuffy lectures, but rather intimate conversations that take place in a cozy room where you can get up close and personal with some of the most engaging personalities at Wanderlust.
Our Speakeasy guests run the gamut from holistic medical experts to technology buffs, from filmmakers to yoga teachers,from authors to CEOs with green business models. These inspirational figures cover a wide range of topics including meditation, nutrition, technology, music, organics, spirituality, yoga, and more. Our lecturers have included Dr. Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Moby, Aron Ralston, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Congressman Tim Ryan, Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Elena Brower, Adrian Grenier, Mariel Hemingway, Kris Carr, Majora Carter and many others.
These are not stuffy lectures, but rather informal conversations that take place in an intimate lounge setting. Our Wanderlust O'ahu location is no exception: you will be kicking back at Surfer, the Bar to listen to our Hawaiian speakers enlighten you on subjects that pertain to mindfulness as it relates to life on the islands. We will be presenting the Speakeasy in conjunction with the in-house lecture series at Turtle Bay, Talk Story, to share these tales from our Hawaiian presenters with both our #WLOAHU guests as well as our WL community worldwide on our Wanderlust Youtube channel.
We are happy to announce that our O'ahu Speakeasy lineup features surfing legend Gerry Lopez; one of the world's top female tube riders (and local yoga studio owner), Rochelle Ballard, and local legendary surfer and waterman Tom "Pohaku" Stone.
Since 2010, the Speakeasy Series has materialized into one of the most exciting parts of the Wanderlust festival. Click here to check out previous Speakeasy videos here (2010 | 2011 | 2012). Our 2012 Speakeasy videos are being released weekly and will continue to come out as we take our festival through 3 states and up to the province of British Columbia.
