Event description
Come join us for 'Nurture' -- A Floratherapy Day Retreat at Lavender Valley Farm in Maple Valley, WA on 7/21 from 9:30am to 6pm.

About this Event

Corporate and work burnout is real. Harvard Business Review reports that 1 in 5 employees are both highly engaged at their workplaces and experience symptoms of burnout: physical & emotional depletion, depression, sleep disorders and lower quality of life. Our Floratherapy & Mindfulness Day Retreat is based on horticultural therapy, and designed to refresh attendees & introduce them to the therapeutic and nurturing benefits of plants & flowers. Its also been proven that using plants as therapeutic tools lowers blood pressure & engages involuntary attention: breathing deeper + slower, more acute awareness of natural surroundings which leads to clarity of mind. This in turn decreases stress levels, leading to a happier emotional + physical state.

At our day retreat, we’ll start the morning with mindful stretching in the relaxing organic lavender fields, followed by a mindful flower arranging class led by florist/horticultural therapist, Nichole of Florathérapie. We'll make a garden-inspired compote centerpiece using local flowers and lavender you pick, while engaging all our senses and finding your personalized therapeutic flower essence that nurtures your mind and creativity.

We'll learn from flower farmer Celeste of Free Range Flowers how nurturing our land + gardens in turn nutures us. Also, Amy of Laughing Goat Flower Farm will teach us some cutting garden basics, so everyone can plan their own gardens big or small and reap these nurturing benefits. We’ll also learn some nurturing skincare tips from makeup artist, Yessie Libby, helping us achieve the healthy, glowing skin she’s known for.

We'll end the day with Tamara from Simply by Tamara Nicole sharing tips on how to nurture others with intentional tabletop design, while enjoying fresh fare with new friends at our lovely styled table in the fragrant fields. We'll have our cake (from Honey Crumb Cake Studio) and eat it too! Kerry Jeanne Photography will be beautifully capturing our day and portfolio pics. Tickets include farm-to-table catered lunch by Twelve Baskets Catering (see lunch menu below), evening appetizers and curated welcome boxes full of local goodies.

We’re keeping the retreat small, so don’t wait…invest in yourself and a day of nurturing floratherapy!
