ABOUT THE FESTIVAL REVE WELLNESS Festival® is an annual event, scheduled to occur on Saturday August 10, 2013 from 11am-6pm in the formal Gardens of Devon House (the front of the mansion). ADMISSION is PEACE & LOVE (FREE). The REVE WELLNESS Festival® was created by REVE Jewellery & Accessories® with our REVEllers (LOYAL customers), well wishers & various partners who have played a supportive role in the continuous growth & development of the REVE™ brand in Jamaica. “Every day we are approached by Jamaicans home & aboard on how inspirational we are & have been to them. That response has blossomed into a complete circle of inspiration and we found ourselves wanting to touch people’s lives on a much deeper level. Our approach was to do what we do best… be creative. Thus the REVE WELLNESS Festival® was born in 2012! The REVE WELLNESS Festival® is posed to be the platform where we could impart deep value to the lives of others by educating & sensitizing them about taking better care themselves; from the perspective of our company REVE Jewellery & Accessories with the pieces we create for you to wear… to the clothing you adorn yourself… to the foods that you consume… to the meditations we go on… to the prayers we pray and the very way we interact and regard each other.
