Come one, come all to Flow,
Where the wild things grow.
A beautiful farm and animal sanctuary,
Where humans and nature connect in harmony.
The workshops are many, for all ages to shine,
Music and forest therapy amongst the pines,
Yoga in the wild, surrounded by green,
Meditation to calm, a peaceful scene.
Food that nourishes body and soul,
Shared together, makes us whole.
Flow is an oasis, a sanctuary for all,
Where humans and animals respond to nature’s call.
Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 each year. More than a billion people around the world come together this day to raise awareness about serious environmental issues that threaten our survival, including climate change, deforestation and biodiversity loss.
To support Earth Day, Flow hosted our first Love Our Earth charity festival this year. We invited eco warriors from all over the world who facilitated wonderful workshops, bringing joy, laughter and eco-consciousness to Zhongshan.
Flow’s efforts to reduce carbon footprint included using only biodegradable disposable cups and cutlery, and printing our festival entry tickets on seed paper so they could be planted and grown into sunflowers in 14 days. Guests were encouraged to bring their own water bottles, napkins and tote bags.
Here are some highlights :
Heartful Connection: Our celebrity pooch BoBo won over everyone’s heart.
DRUMBEAT®: Dorinda, a certified DRUMBEAT® instructor and Hong Kong’s first Chinese female saxophonist, explored our inner worlds using African drum therapy.
Green Yoga: Giorgia showed us how to relax and release through pranayama and hatha flow.
Flow Reading Club: “There is a Tiger in the Garden”, a delightful, award-winning children’s story was brought to life by Alex.
Mindful Walk: A serene walking meditation in nature was guided by Dr. Shang and Yvonne, our mindfulness teacher.
Nature Concert: Our singer Vivian and sound therapist, Joan performed soul-cleansing music on the acoustic guitar and Native American double flute.
D.I.Y. Earth Moss Balls: Children foraged for wild moss and created their own little planets.
Art in Nature
Earth Cookies Workshop: With a bit of magic, our little chefs transformed raw dough into edible earths.
International Food Fair: A bountiful plant-based farm feast included artisanal quiche and wood-fired pizza napoletana made by our Kind Chef Johan and Southeast Asian delights made by the head chef of Wing On Crowne Plaza Hotel.
