On February 13th, we hosted our 16th Flowerlounge + third event in New York City ~ this time a love + compassion-themed evening infused with transformative orchid elixirs, poetry, movement, meditation, a flower journey, mandalas + yummy treats!
The highlight was the group improv poetry piece where everyone shared a line from their writing or an expression of love - super heartfelt + inspiring.
Huge gratitude to ALL OF YOU who came - not only from all over the city - but also from faraway places like Boston, Ohio, Louisiana, Vancouver + Switzerland - specifically for this event!
And a loving shout out to Rockin’ Raw for your amazing treats + beautiful presentation, Lisa Reinhardt of Wei of Chocolate, Kaeli Astheimer, Kerry McCarthy, Mileen Patel who flew in from Chicago to help out + Shop Studios for the gorgeous space.
After every Flowerlounge we go to the nearest water to make prayers + wishes - offering up all the flowers + petals we used at the event, tossing them into the water.
This time we made our way to Brooklyn Bridge, the team huddling together under the birds soaring in the wind, speaking aloud each of our prayers and dedications to the city, the local protectors and nature spirits, the attendees at the events, everyone in New York City, naming everyone and anyone we can think of - sending blessing for love + happiness ... and then expanding it to all beings everywhere.
May it be felt, may it have impact, may love abound.
Huge love + gratitude,
Katie, Taylor, Kate, Alexis, Jax, Lindsey + Tessa
