In The Presence of Giants

Posted by Bram Levinson on October 19, 2013

20131019-020035.jpgLululemon brought me out to Western Canada last week as a way of bringing together 28 of their North American Ambassadors whose stores thought they had something special to offer. What ended up coming together was a grouping of the brightest lights I’ve ever been exposed to. These leaders in their communities brought their hopes, their fears, their inspirations and their souls to BC’s Sunshine Coast. With coaxing and encouragement from the exemplary Lululemon facilitators (absolute and undeniable leaders in their own rights) and the force that is Susanne Conrad, all of our lights joined forces to create a field of energy that permeated everything and everyone around us (including the Stephen King-esque fog that cloaked our nest in the wilderness like vaporous glue). That light intensified throughout our days together, and what’s fascinating is that even once our family started to fragment and break away as we headed back on our journeys home, it didn’t wane. I’m flying somewhere over Saskatchewan as I write this (yes, Ryan Leier, I’m waving down, and yes, they let a 40-year old on the plane ;)), I feel that light coursing through my veins.

Lululemon knows how it’s done. They take care of their people and continuously and consistently check in with us to make sure we’re equipped to continue to maintain the fine balance that we all aim to keep. They’re more than a company. They’re a family. We’re a family. And we’re hell-bent on bringing that light we all harvested back with us to shine onto our communities. The imprint of us may remain on the Sunshine Coast, but the streaks of light that stem from it are stretching far and wide across our continent right now.

Thank you, Lululemon. Again. From the tips of our toes to the crowns of our heads. We thank you. We couldn’t do it as well without you.
