Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Moore.
Hi Elizabeth, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
We previous submitted this as TRILUNA, that part of the story remains the same. oneC1TY is the host and a partner but this festival is a TRILUNA event.
The Mind Body Magic Festival is the work of TRILUNA Wellness, oneC1TY but it originally started as a collaboration amongst friends. Vanessa Antonino was an early founder of the festival which we (TRILUNA) originally wanted to be an ice cream social–little yoga, little ice cream. But Vanessa, now of their own Maypop Farmstead, and then manager of Avo had the idea to turn it into a festival. We agreed! We combined forces with oneC1TY and Emily Janney and the festival was born. This festival was created with a clear mission: To show that life is full of WONDER and that by connecting with our bodies, taking care of our minds, and investing in our community we can create small acts of magic that change the world.
The first year we saw over 1,000 RSVPS and nearly 500 attendees from all across our city. We danced, we flowed, we listened, and we discussed what wellness means to us and to our community. Our second year was a bit different, we focused on outdoor, well-spaced movement that brought us together safely. This year we will bring back the festival in all its glory—with a few new safety features.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We started the festival in 2019 and it was immediately successful. Our second year was during covid and this year is…. well, this year. We had a great media partner our first year, NATIVE Magazine, that has since closed their doors and it’s been really challenging.
We, TRILUNA, put at ton–A TON–of work into this festival and nearly all the money we make from sponsorships goes back into hosting the festival. We are so incredibly lucky to be working with oneC1TY on this project. They really deeply care about health, wellness, and building community and without them, this festival would not exist today.
It’s been a huge challenge for oneC1TY and for us but we do it because we believe STRONGLY that Nashville deserves wellness that is accessible, inclusive, and fun. And that the small businesses and organizations (our vendors) that work to make that possible deserve more attention.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about TRILUNA LLC?
TRILUNA is a stress management company dedicated to reducing burnout and increasing conversation around mental health. Co-Founders Elizabeth and Ashley each left their careers burned out and seeking a better way. Through their individual journeys, they each came to the conclusion that in order for work to work it would need an overhaul. After health coaching and yoga certifications, self-study, and three years of running workshops for companies as large as LinkedIn and as small as local yoga studios they’ve developed a program that helps organizations keep their teams productive, connected, and well.
Today, they’re proud to say that TRILUNA is a local leader in helping individuals and organizations rethink their approach to stress and burnout and you’ll often find them leading workshops, hosting festivals, speaking at conferences, and executing panels on everything from purpose and productivity to self-care for better mental health.
We are known for our no-bs approach to mental wellness and stress management. We are founded on vulnerability, transparency, and a desire to redefine the way we think of wellness. Fundamentally fitness and wellness are not the same thing, and without an emphasis on mental health and well-being, we have totally missed the mark.
We do primarily corporate workshops and retreats around stress management and burnout. We’re looking to a new normal and companies have to adapt. If your culture isn’t inclusive, if it doesn’t invest in community care, if it ignores well-being it will fall prey to “the great resignation” we are seeing right now. It’s time to divest from hustle culture and invest in the kind of productivity that creates better work in less time so your people can avoid burnout and seek alignment.
Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Find a mentor that resonates with you. Simply “having more experience” doesn’t make them a good mentor for you. Find someone who goes beyond mentorship to sponsorship. If your mentor believes in you and they get it they will fight for you all day and you’ll grow together.
