Sun Valley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV )

The 17th annual Wellness Festival in Sun Valley is a weekend filled with positive seminars featuring speakers like the famous swimmer Diana Nyad and Twin Falls native and financial planner Tresa Leftenant.

Leftenant explains, "So last year was my first year as a speaker and now I'm returning with a whole new process and a new book, I'm very excited to be here this year, it's going to be great."

Tresa speaks about her new book, titled “Reinventing Her: Helping Women Plan For, Pursue and Capitalize on Your Next Chapter.
She explains, "Success is based on really connecting to who you are inside and developing that part of yourself. I am really connected to helping people realize that happiness is why we're here."

Comedian Kyle Cease, another key speaker at the festival, will be teaching people to not worry about others approval and to do what makes them happy, saying, "the natural state when you're a kid all you did was play and create and did your thing and as time goes on society turns you into a consumer. So I speak to people how to get into a creative state where you can actually just play instead of trying to make things happen."

Everyone attending the Wellness Festival this weekend will be looking to the speakers and seminars to help them find their way to a better mental and physical life.

Tresa adds, "We have many people who are going to speak about that this weekend, we are going to speak about the potential of life, the potential that each one of us individually has as a human being. I just hope that everyone walks away with the knowledge that you have what you need inside of you, you just need to learn how to focus it and apply it to whatever you want."

The theme for the festival this year is "find your way"...
Something attendees hope to accomplish.

The festival continues on Sunday and runs from 9 to 6. It is located in the Limelight Room at the Sun Valley Inn and is free and open to the public.
