True North


Presented by Wanderlust


Wanderlust is inviting all Australians to gift themselves time, space, community, empowerment and inspiration as its acclaimed True North events return with a brand-new format in February 2024.

Guests will be invited to ‘fill their cups’ as they take a deep dive into inspiration, conversation, music, mindfulness, and meditation from some of the leading voices in their field, both locally and internationally.

Returning for a second time to host each event is author, entrepreneur, and social justice advocate Sarah Wilson. Her most recent book ‘This One Wild and Precious Life’ won the US Nautilus prize and she is ranked in the Top 200 most influential authors in the world for two years in a row. Come February, Sarah will have recently returned from six months in Paris writing her next book.

Home-grown actress and environmentalist Isabel Lucas will be sharing her most important work to date. Deeply passionate about animal rights, the environment and social justice, Isabel will be sharing what you can do in your own micro world to help and contribute to our planet during her inspiring talks at each True North event.

Paul and Tami Roos, Australian power couple and directors of Nurture 360 Retreat, will be presenting on empowerment, elevating and maintaining your personal frequency levels in these challenging times – a session not to be missed.

Australian singer-songwriter and storyteller Steph Strings will enchant guests with her acoustic sounds, while Northeast Arnhem Land’s (Milingimbi) Gawurra returns to True North to deliver his masterful performance with his emotional and resonant voice.

Wanderlust Chairman and trailblazing Australian entrepreneur Radek Sali will join event host Sarah Wilson for an inspiring conversation as he draws on his decades-long experience in the health and wellness sector and will share exclusive insights from his soon-to-be-released first book, ‘How to Build a Billion Dollar Business: On Purpose, For Profit, With Passion’.

The event will round out with the humblest teacher of teachers in Vedic Meditation, internationally acclaimed Pandit Baskaran from Chennai India. Panditji will lead True North’s mass mediation alongside Laura Poole and live musicians, delivered with the utmost ceremony and devotion.
