Nowhere else on earth have I felt more at peace than at the Woodstock Fruit Festival.
Nowhere else have I allowed myself to be so tender, open, vulnerable, present, loving, accepting of my true self and others.This allowing is an art that has helped me become more aligned with my authentic self and purpose. When I allow my life to unfold day by day, and follow my inner guidance, all the little dots connect. By opening up, stripping away the layers, and choosing my highest excitement, in just a matter of weeks I've made genuine emotional connection, seen new places, inspired and have been inspired by others. I am beyond grateful.
This festival is the most beautiful and fulfilling thing I have ever gotten to experience!
It's a beautiful journey of self-realization that is supported by the love and high frequencies that all of the attendees exude. It brings hope that veganism is the way, that the earth can be healed, and that we are doing the right thing. There's nowhere else on earth I have ever felt I could truly be myself. This is my 3rd festival and I am already signed up for the next year! Thank you, the Woodstock Fruit Festival, for allowing us to be ourselves and let our lights shine, giving us the strength and support to shine those lights in our lives back home.
Over the week, I had many memorable moments.
I got the opportunity to play on stage at the talent show and had great fun dancing round the campfire to the music of the drum-circle each night, but I was also able to really surprise myself on the day of the marathon. I decided to see how far I could run despite not really being a runner. I went at a slow pace and ended up continuing for about 22 miles which took me just over 5 hrs and 20 minutes. What most surprised me was that my joints and muscles did not ache particularly badly after it. I put this feat down not only to the power of the diet but to the energy of the Woodstock event which takes us to a new paradigm of health, positivity and fitness for the duration of the event which we can carry with us for the rest of the year along with the good memories.
WFF has changed my life, my soul and my heart.
I am so blessed and thankful for this opportunity. Now I feel that I am a part of the most kind, thoughtful, generous, acceptable, loving and carrying big fruit family. I have never met so many incredible people in one place, the organizers did a fantastic job on putting it together and providing the most epic, ripe fruits from all over the world. Everyone has to attend this festival to understand the beauty of what nature can provide to us and experience the feeling of love and wisdom from all the guests speakers. I feel reborn and rejuvenated.
My husband and I could not afford the entire festival so we just stayed for a night. It was worth it!
The accommodations were very clean and nice, the fruit is really high quality and all-you-can-eat, and there are activities scheduled all day and night. We stopped at the Asian market in Albany on the way home because I got addicted to jackfruit and durian while there and we were blown away by the cost. Oh and there was a beautiful lake with a beach right across the street and we also got to go paddle boarding. And I guess most importantly it really inspired me to start eating healthier. I've lost over 20 pounds and I feel fantastic.
From the moment I arrived, I knew I was somewhere great.
The vibe attendees give off is different than you find among the general populace – these are people who are interested in thriving on a whole new level, and they're taking steps to go down that path rather than remaining stagnant in the status quo. It's a fruit festival, of course, and the unlimited fruit buffet is great. But so are the morning fitness classes, the beautiful lake, the amazing conversations to be had with progressive people, and so much more. I actually met my girlfriend at Woodstock, and for that alone the price of admission was well worth it. I highly suggest it to anyone who wants to learn how to thrive.
Every morning I wake up and give thanks for three things in my life. This morning I gave thanks for one thing three times because it was just that fricken awesome!
I am so grateful for all the wonderful friends I have made either directly or indirectly from The Woodstock Fruit Festival! I can't even begin to tell you what a difference it's been to be among such beautiful, vibrant, healthy and thriving individuals. The positivity, the love and the support. I feel truly blessed to have you all in my life.
I went to the Woodstock Fruit Festival looking for inspiration and personal growth. I found both.
It's been just over a month since the festival and I'm still going strong. I'm not perfect, but that's not my goal. My goal is to love myself, accept myself and continue to choose the best foods to eat so that I can be at my best every day. I've got two boys with special needs and they need me to be there for them. When I choose to eat healthfully, I can be who I'm meant to be.
I've participated in all these festivals from 2011-2016. Each instance is always one of the most rewarding, refreshing times of my life.
The highlight of the year, easily. When I'm not there, I find myself so looking forward to next time! You wouldn't believe the amount of fond nostalgia that lives on in my heart long afterward. I know what they're talking about when I hear so many people testify how life-transformational their experiences are. Not only loads of fun, but high vibes from the gathering of so many health enthusiasts. It's one of the biggest factors supporting my chosen values and path.
It was probably the best vacation I have taken as an adult, and worth every cent.
If you are a seasoned low-fat raw vegan, like I am, you will feel like you are coming home. If you are newer to the lifestyle then it is an amazing opportunity to be able to ask your questions, meet like-minded people and experience some truly excellent meals. I believe attending a week-long event can really give a solid foundation for making healthy lifestyle changes. The hardest part to describe is the general atmosphere/energy that exudes from attendees & speakers. People make eye contact, smile, are happy to chat with you. I can't wait to go again this year!
I wouldn't trade the experience for the world!!
Sending a huge ~Namaste~ to everyone from WFF & Peace, Love, Light, Best of Health & High quality Fruit always!!
