A 4 Day Festival Experience.
For the past 5 years we have created space where women, men and children from all walks of life can come together to literally Bloom, be inspired, be challenged and be supported in a community of people who are really into living mindfully and well.
Expect to cry, expect to laugh and maybe even take part in a spontaneous mid day dance party with MC YOGI & DJ Drez.
This is for you if you want to reconnect with ideas, dreams and goals you haven't quite acted upon and wanted to meet fellow creative entrepreneurs and yogi's. This is for you if you wish to design a life in total alignment to your heart.
This is for you, if you wish every cell in your body to be totally jumping for joy, to feel the peace and stillness of a life lived mindfully and this is for those who wish to BLOOM in all areas of your life.
Be inspired by world renowned speakers.
Connect with other creative entrepreneurs & wellness experts from YEG and beyond.
Network with other inspired women and men through our brunch & learn sessions, panels and Meet the Expert (it's kinda like speed dating, but you get to spend 5-8 minutes with entrepreneurial and wellness experts).
Be challenged in new and inspiring ways either on a yoga mat or in the river valley meditating with live musicians.
Recharge & Renew your mind, body and spirit by taking in 3 or more workshops, talks and experiences daily & walk away with tangible tools to BLOOM wildly in all areas of your life.

If you are coming from out of town, the best hotels nearby are Hotel Macdonald, Hyaat Downtown, Chateau Lacombe, Westin Downtown, all of these are totally walkable. If you are looking for a super inexpensive place, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set you up for a $50/night stay at a downtown retreat centre that we are working with (pending availability of course).

Did you know that 95% of Edmonton's inner city youth schools have students living with trauma and adverse childhood experiences that impact their ability to learn, function, and feel safe in their respective communities?
Most students struggle with not being able to get their basic physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs met in order to develop into healthy young adults. There are many nutritional meal programs that help address gaps in their daily caloric intake.
However, what really helps build resilience in children continuing to build their positive relationships and sense of connection to a larger community. Youth Bloom Through Play is a collaboration between Together We Bloom Society and Qi Creative to help Edmonton's inner city youth build resilience through yoga, meditation and play expression.
