  • Summer Sound Bath in a Lavender Field

    Relax in a lavender field while experiencing a Sound Bath, an ancient technique that uses sound frequency to help calm and reset the nervous system as a way to improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Christine from Nature_ally Meditated will be offering this beautiful experience here in our Lavender Fields. She uses a combination of instruments, such as crystal and metal sound bowls, and chimes during this experience. Combining these elements  with the natural sounds of nature and the fragrance of the lavender provide relaxation and energy to help you relax and recharge your mind and body. **We have blankets, but feel free to bring any items that would make you comfortable (blankets, yoga mats, pillows, etc) during this hour long experience. Ticket includes lavender cutting, a lavender lemonade and a lavender dessert.
