The first time I went to the Shambhala Music Festival in British Columbia, Canada I went with a really close friend of mine. By the end of the festival we were in a relationship. It was the most magical experience I had ever had at that point. This girl was someone who I never thought would ever even consider thinking about me in a romantic way and imagine my surprise when our love blossomed. She moved away eventually and our love fell to ruins. I thought that there was no way I’d ever find love like that again and I waited for it for over four lonely years. But now four Shambhalas later I have the privilege to bring my newest love, Sydney to Shambhala for her first time. Everything I have learned about myself since that first year I’m now able to put into making our fresh, exciting, spontaneous love something that will last for as long as possible. It has been a very serendipidous experience as now I know for sure that I can let that initial love go.
