Introducing Cristina Lopez McLauchlan, founder of The Vibe Tribe and Conscious Cinema. Cristina has spend 15 + years working in hospitality, brand and event management. Previously having worked for luxury corporate firms, she now aligns ethical brands and individuals. After a realisation that she needed to change her path and lead a more ‘conscious’ existence, Cristina set out on a mission of reflection and evolvement, making steps to design a life around her personal wellbeing and the wellbeing of others; she tells us candidly "this is true for everyone’s life, it is in your own hands". Through sketching and journaling one day, she found herself drawing what is now The Vibe Tribe logo. The Vibe Tribe is a conduit for change. It aims to craft strategic brand story telling, sales and marketing scope and elevating Social Media platform performance behind the scenes in order to #brandyourvibe LIVE. The Vibe Tribe consults and guides business to deliver sustainable and ethical business practices as well as activates and facilitates journeys and experiences. Cristina believes you must nourish and balance by getting to know your brand from the inside out.

As brand manager for ‘Mana! Café’, she works tirelessly to ensure that it succeeds in its aims. Bobsy Gaia, founder of Mana Café, describes her as a ‘conscious powerhouse’. Considering herself a ‘global citizen’, to whom 'earth is home'. She originates from New Zealand, her possessions are in Hong Kong, and she regularly frequents Bali for work, but is not tied to anywhere. Everything is transient and she does not plan far in advance; designing her life this way to nourish her mind, body and soul. Cristina continues to strive towards creating a conscious community. Raising awareness through Conscious Cinema, conducting yoga workshops, and participating in mindful events. Join Cristina at The Conscious Collective on Friday 4th May where she will lead a yoga flow and a 'Raise your Vibration' workshop. Cristina will also be hosting a 'Conscious Cinema' screening in the evening. Check out The Vibe Tribe day with The Conscious Collective HERE.
