Inside Look: Flowerevolution Flower Lounge

Posted on November 18, 2016 at 2:19 PM
Otter and I had the privilege of attending an amazing, heart-opening event last evening.  When I was pregnant with her, I met Katie Hess and Lisa Reinhardt at an event for The Bump.  That "chance" meeting introduced the power of flowers and intentional chocolate into our lives, for which I am forever grateful.

Whether you are pregnant, birthing or postpartum, this book applies to you.  It applies to anyone who is breathing space and wanting a more meaningful life experience.  Katie and Lisa's vision to change the world with flowers has found it's most recent expression through Katie's book, Flowerevolution.

I first became of Katie's work-in-progress when one of her assistant's contacted me about including my testimonial in the book.  I had written it after using the flower essences through Otter's pregnancy and birth journey.  What a thrill to see it included in the finished product!!

There are a few book launch FLOWER LOUNGE events coming up.  Check HERE to see if there is one coming to a city near you...I know that CA and FL are on the list. Then do whatever you can to get there.

The evening was magical from start to finish.  We were welcomed into the space with a flower mandala.  There were flowers along every walkway, and yes, even in the restrooms.  

There was delicious libation with optional flower infusion, delicious gifts from Mother Earth to eat, and there were flower reading stations for the guests to enjoy.  Every solid space for sitting was ensconced with flower petals and candle light.

The evening started with an introduction and an invitation to meditate by Lisa Reinhardt, creator of Wei of Chocolate.  Her vegan, fair-trade chocolates are infused with Lotus Wei flower essences.  Both she and Katie have studied meditation, and we were treated to a wonderful two-minutes of mindfulness, breathing and being at the pace of chocolate.

She welcomed Katie to take the stage.  Katie share the trailer for her book, and then spoke more about the inspiration for this labor of love to take fifteen years of working with clients and traveling around the world to connect with flowers into a master work.  Anyone can pick up this book and connect with the healing power of flowers. Now you don't need to live near a garden or grow your own flowers to receive their beneficial energy. Even though after experiencing this book I think many will be inspired to plant a small garden, albeit a pot garden in a windowsill - prepare to be enlivened and inspired to take action.  

Thanks to the masterful skill and the talented eye of photographer and filmmaker Louie Schwartzburg, the pictures in the book come alive in your living room.  He was the final person to take the floor last evening.  

There are not enough words to describe the wonder and awe with which he filled the audience.  His dedication to capture the small, the vast, and the incomprehensible for the human eye, slowing it down for our speed, left me in greater wonder at this amazing space we live in.  It filled me with hope that since Nature is much bigger and than we are, with stewardship and care, we have an instruction guide to build a safer place for our children. We just need to slow down enough to try and grasp her language and learn her lessons.

I highly recommend the book - you can watch the trailer at the Lotus Wei website and order from Amazon.  Even if you are not ready to take the flower power journey, it is a stunning work of art with countless beautiful images to bring beauty into your day.

Here is a photo journal of our evening:

Mandala at the sign-in area

Otter got into the spirit of the evening by adding flowers to the mandala.

Floral art installation along a bench on the walk way.

Always a fan of the infinity sign, I was thrilled to see this floral art.

The flower mandala in the presentation hall.

A gift for all the attendees. Lisa had a specific activity for us to do with the cards - and there were also two pieces of chocolate, which we enjoyed at the event.

Thank goodness for the coloring table!! Otter enjoyed the flower coloring pages while I got to listen to the presenters.

Like an invitation in Wonderland, here was a message for the guests.

Otter was enthralled with the mandalas - a true flower child.

There were a handful of flower petals left.  
We placed them with intention for some loved ones.

Good night, garden!

The final piece of Lisa's meditation was to have us take out the flower card in our gift bag and reflect on any messages we were receiving as we meditated on the flowers around us.  Then the Lotus Wei crew walked among the audience to collect all the cards.  The cards were then placed on a table at the exit.  Each guest was invited to take a message card on the way out the door.  Otter picked this one for us.  Pictured underneath it is my flower message that I received this morning when I used Part 2 of the book to continue my own #flowerevolution journey:

I and also my buddies happened to be digesting the nice tips and hints found on your website and quickly developed a terrible suspicion I never thanked the web blog owner for those tips. All the young boys had been certainly stimulated to read through all of them and now have in reality been loving them. Thanks for genuinely well considerate and then for considering some high-quality subject matter most people are really eager to learn about. My honest regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.
