Wanderlust Festivals cofounder Krasno presents a companion volume to the festivals, a series of large-scale lifestyle retreats that combine yoga and wellness with the arts. To clarify the philosophy behind the events, Krasno defines the word “wanderlust” as meaning more than just the desire to travel, but extending to an intense “yearning to explore and understand the world” and “longing to know and actualize our true and best self.” The well-known teachers, experts, artists, and business leaders who teach and perform at the festivals also provide the book’s contents: among them are musicians Moby, Krishna Das, and MC Yogi; Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa from Golden Bridge Yoga; Hormone Diet author Sara Gottfried; pioneer vinyasa teacher Rolf Gates, trance-dance yogini Shiva Rea; Insight Meditation Society cofounder Sharon Salzberg; and Ohio congressman Tim Ryan. A reader can, in effect, experience the festival’s essence through the book, which includes yoga routines, meditation guidance, blank pages for guided journaling and drawing, and recipes for conscious eating. The richly illustrated volume is a souvenir, a sampler of yoga lifestyle activities, and, perhaps, a vicarious trip for those who have yet to go in search of their own “true north.” Agent: Kitty Cowles, Cowles-Ryan Agency.
