Summer Garden Walk, June 25 & 26


Orange Flower Healing is happy to be a sponsor for the Bloomington Garden Club’s annual Summer Garden Walk, taking place this weekend, June 25 & 26. Visit 5 private gardens and the Monroe County History Center! Hours and ticket info are at the Garden Club website. What better way to top off Pollinator Week?

This photo of blooming buckwheat comes from my own rag-tag, fits-and-starts garden. Buckwheat is great for pollinators, especially honeybees, who use the nectar to make a dark honey with a potent, molasses-like flavor. I think of it as bee medicine…



Prospect Hill Neighborhood picnic


Orange Flower Healing is located in the historic Prospect Hill Neighborhood of Bloomington. Our neighborhood picnic is this Sunday, June 12 from 4-7 PM in the large shelter at Building & Trades Park on Howe Street. Bring your favorite side dish, and enjoy grilled items provided by the neighborhood association.

Psst! I’ll be offering free 5-10 minute chair Reiki sessions–just look for me at the picnic, or text me to coordinate a time.

For more information about the neighborhood, visit the PHNA website.

BOST, June 3-5, 2016


Orange Flower Healing is happy to support BOST 2016, the 5th annual Bloomington Open Studios Tour…. This free event offers the opportunity to visit the studios of 36 local artists–meet the artists, examine their materials and tools, and ask questions about what makes them tick. Then buy some art!

There’s a preview launch on Friday June 3rd, and studios are open Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and 5th. Details here.

BOST’s mission is to strengthen connections among artists, the public, and BOST supporters in Bloomington’s vibrant visual arts community.

Art is healing, ya’ll. I encourage you to get out there and see what the artists in our community are up to. Hope to see you there!
