Meet The Team

Conor McMillen, FWF Co-Organizer and Founder

Conor McMillen, Chiang Mai’s Fruit Winter Festival (FWF) creator, is widely known as a YouTuber, artist, therapist, life coach, and all around badass human being. He loves connecting with himself and others and is passionately pursuing this through real relationships and a deep internal connection. His passion lies in finding this connection through art, various types of movement such as dance and partner acrobatics, touch, and through helping others, using the Internal Family Systems (IFS) modality of therapy.

In 2012 Conor visited Chiang Mai for the first time, encountering an amazing group of people that helped change his life. He decided to go back the following year to create the same life-changing atmosphere and share it with the world: thus birthed Fruit Winter Fest. Now in its third year, Conor is looking to expand that experience to encompass full body health, focused on connection, both with ourselves and others.

Conor aims to create love in all areas of his life. This, coupled with his desire for real relationships, is what Fruit Winter Fest is all about. Conor will be facilitating group activities together with Brittany during FWF 2018, both at the Fruit House and during some of the meetups to help participants connect with themselves and one another. He will also be leading guided meditations at the private Immersion and Retreat.

Brittany Taylor, FWF Co-Organizer and Activity Facilitator

Brittany Taylor, Fruit Winter Festival co-organizer and all around badass loves to play and enjoy life. She shares her radically alternative style of nomadic, minimalist, and natural way of living on on Instagram, Youtube and through her website.

Brittany can most frequently be found balanced upside down on another human’s body, out appreciating nature, engaged in deep conversation, or generally dancing about. Brittany’s desire is to keep discovering the most authentic version of herself, living life from a place of joyful abundance. She prides herself on living a somewhat out-of-the ordinary existence and encourages others to discover the extraordinary within themselves, uncovering what they are truly passionate about.

Brittany is excited to be co-hosting FWF 2018 with Conor. She will be leading authentic relating games and a partner acro class at the public FWF meetups. She and Conor will be leading group circles at the Retreat and Immersion, utilizing more tools for authentic connection, as well as leading a class on journaling.
