Anyone who has spent an extended amount of time in Aspen knows that Walter Paepcke was right when he said that “Aspen is a place where the human spirit can flourish.” From early morning chair lift rides on blue bird days to strolling the pedestrian mall and enjoying world class dining, Aspen defies the ordinary. The essence of Aspen is deeply embedded in a local culture that naturally fosters a sense of wellbeing for the mind, body, and spirit. For the past two years, Aspen City of Wellbeing (ACW), a local non-profit focused on creating a culture of wellbeing locally and beyond, is producing a multi-day fundraiser called Lead With Love (LWL) in Aspen, CO September 12-15.
Lead With Love is a unique transformational experience, unlike any other yoga festival. Founder and visionary Gina Murdock manifested the event to encompass yoga, meditation, nature, presentations, nutrition, and music all with the mission to offer a toolkit to each attendee to access their human potential. Presenters and participants come together from all over the world to cultivate an incredible heart-centered event focused on reaching optimal wellbeing.
Join us this fall and experience a multi-day event that will transform you and improve your overall health and happiness, here are six reasons why you and your friends should attend this event:
1) Learn-Ignite your potential.
Lead With Love is an event created with the intention to give participants the tools in life to access a higher potential. Immerse yourself in the ideas of thought leaders at the seminars and learn what makes you come alive. These talks are curated to shine a light on your life and open your heart to live a more mindful existence.
2) Practice-Breathe it in and let it all out.
The cathartic experience of yoga and meditation coupled with nourishment and seminars is a mind, body, spirit exploration that will give the whole body a complete and soul fulfilling transformation. The presenter list includes the world's most mindful leaders in yoga and meditation. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or an eager novice-this event offers classes for everybody.
3) Explore-Unplug and Recharge.
Take a break and go outside. Lead with Love offers opportunities to explore one of Aspen’s best assets: the outdoors. Aspen is an exhilarating time in the fall. The air is invigorating, and the ubiquitous fallen leaves result in a cozy golden hue, setting up the perfect ambiance for inward reflection and renewal. Take a run/walk on the many trails around the venue or pull out a bike and go for a ride along the river or through town. Whatever you do, experience the fresh air in your face and look up at something higher than yourself- the snow-capped mountains that cradle Aspen.
4) Listen-Transcendental beats.
Feel the rhythm and let it become your heartbeat. Celebrate the multi-day event and your transformational journey with a musical finale implemented to elevate your experience. We will dance the night away at Aspen’s favorite music venue, the Belly Up. This event is hosted by Aspen City of Wellbeing and is private for Lead With Love participants.
5) Nourish-Fuel your body with sustenance.
Start your day with a healthy light breakfast that will sustain you through the day. After feeding your soul in class, feast on a nourishing meal offered by Lead With Love at the venue. Our vendors also offer tasty treats throughout the day. Each meal is sensitive to all dietary needs. VIP dinners provide an opportunity to connect with friends and the presenters.
6) Build-Come together.
Immerse yourself in a community that is striving to create a cultural shift towards wellbeing. Find new friends, engage in deep intimate conversations about the human experience and build meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime. Connect with like-minded individuals and build a thriving community that goes out in the world to lead with love.
