Enchanted Garden Experience



Take a journey with us into beautiful peaceful blooming botanical gardens where we will open your heart and mind to nature's beauty and intelligence as we show you how to experience firsthand a deeply profound and meaningful connection and heart communication with the living, sentient plant kingdom




Flowers have so much wisdom and emotional depth to share with you.  We'll teach you how to understand plant language, how to tap into 'plant medicine' and how to use the wise counsel of flowers to bring more happiness and meaning into your own life  



Plants are highly intelligent, highly adaptive and complex living beings that are 700 million years more advanced than humans.  Since they cannot move about freely, plants have developed very clever ways to have all their needs met by other species!  


Did you know that the brain of a plant is in its roots, and its reproductive organs are on top?   



Astonishingly, plants possess ALL the same senses as humans, including emotions.   They can hear, taste, feel, see, communicate, make decisions, build relationships, recognize their own family members, and defend themselves.  Plants are clever enough to strategically provide something we need or want in exchange for helping them achieve their own goals of propigating or travelling


Plants are highly intuitive and understand your intent.  Many plants are highly nurturing.  They can sense your feelings and see your aura.  They can make a conscious choice to emit light and sound frequencies that will help you feel better.  Plants can even sing!  They love classical and new age music


Plants communicate openly in highly evolved ways

Plants 'silently' communicate to other species using a type of body language involving shape, texture, scent, colours, taste, ultraviolet light, and high frequency sound which subtly 'speaks' to our own senses and emotions.  We're going to teach you that body language!  




3 hour Introductory

'Flower Whispering' Encounter


Saturday June 1, 2024   



Sunday Sept 15, 2024 



at Whistling Gardens 

Wilsonville ON





Meander through acres of beautiful expansive gardens as we show you how to actually ‘read’ and understand this sensory non-verbal language to intuitively access the wisdom and healing qualities of plants.  Choose spring or autumn dates.  Or come to both!  The plants and their energies are entirely different in different seasons!




"Your workshop was such an amazing experience for me. I loved learning more about what it is that you do and how you do it. I look at every flower differently now and wonder what lessons it has to teach us. But more so than any of that, your workshop helped me connect with myself again. It validated some of the feelings that I was having and helped to name some of the other feelings that I hadn't been able to identify yet. I've told all my friends what an incredible, life-changing experience it was for me and recommended that they check out your website"  Chalcea H  Wichita Kansas

communicating with flowers


We promise this life-changing encounter will invoke your senses and emotions in ways you never thought possible.  You'll experience your own self and the natural world at such a deeply personal and profound level that it will forever change you.  You will walk away with a deep inner peace and much greater wisdom regarding the world around you





"The information of flowers' wisdom telling us messages through their body languages was totally new to me and changed my way of looking at them ... I randomly selected flowers in the garden and flower essence bottles but all was 'no accident', it was surely telling me a story of me... I will definitely recommend.  It's worth travelling from Japan"  Ami K  Japan 




Full day program includes private vegetarian lunch, outdoor flower whispering, a profound sensory self-exploration experience with our amazing flower frequencies.  Plus 10% off our essence fusions  



What stood out most for me was the individuality of each flower and the wisdom each and every flower contains... I see flowers differently now... The way I look at them has changed... It was a unique and wonderful opportunity to immerse myself into and connect personally with the process that has shifted my life. To be able to experience that with the wisdom, experience and support that Lori brings was an amazing experience that I continue to carry with me"  Wendy P  Salt Lake City Utah
