The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is an annual four-day music festival in Tennessee attended by 80,000 people.
“Bonnaroo is a music and arts festival blooming with self expression. When we learned of Nadav’s The Art of Hugging talk we felt it would be a great practice in getting attendees connected to each other. Not only was the talk very entertaining, but attendees who had attended the first performance came back the next day for the second performance and shared on the microphone that they had gone and used the techniques to spread the love and hugs around the festival. We were very pleased with the outcome.”- Laura Sohn, Director, Bonnaroo

What we didn’t know, was how much he would continue to contribute to the overall experience once he’d left the stage.

I love life and I love you… let’s make some magic
I’m all about creating what’s possible for you and me. My Buddhist mentor Yasihuko Kimura taught me, “Passion is not something that we have, it’s who we are as a cosmic destiny”. That realization resonated with me and transformed my life forever. In my opinion, each of us is here to discover and fulfill on OUR PASSIONS. I’m committed you live and love yours, if that’s something you want!After 12 years of building, investing and selling tech startups, I decided to shift my focus to creating impact in the world. I focused on my passion and joined one of my heroes, Peter Diamandis, founder of the XPRIZE Foundation, as Chief Possibility Officer at HeroX, a spinoff of XPRIZE and the leading platform for incentive challenges.
We are living in a world of abundance my friends. Through the delicious combination of exponential technologies and spiritual practices, each of you can live your passion. Cost of living is going down, we have more time to focus on what we love. I’m a nomad living and speaking around the world sharing this message, encouraging people to fulfill on their passion and live a life they love.
