Last week Umbo hosted a gathering we affectionately called Athletes, Artists, and Activators. We were joined by some of the world's best humans in each category! For those of you who couldn’t make it we have a bit of a recap.
What sparked the idea was an EB White quote:
“Each morning I awake torn between a desire to save the world, and an inclination to savor it. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
Umbo is rooted in a cause. The belief is that people should take their health back into their own hands and that mushrooms can help. We sometimes get caught up in the idea of saving the world through mushrooms and forget the joys of enjoying it! Athleticism and Art are two of the most profound ways to savor life! Capturing the flow state through physical exercise, or deep creative thinking are some of life's biggest joys.
Speaking with amazing artists like Chris Dyer, Satsang, Celia Grannum, and Ryan Reyes taught us how these creatives get into flow states. And the athlete's panel hosted by Rashad shed light on how Cory Sandhagen, Victoria Anthony, and Heather Jo Clark get their minds focused on their sports.
Umbo intends on creating more events that gather the community and allow for the savoring of life. After all, EB White's conclusion is “...if we forget to savor the world, what possible reason do we have for saving it?”
Here’s to saving and savoring!
