Our Mission

Welcome to The Living Lotus. Our mission is to cultivate our connection with ourselves through the healing, regenerating, renewing & healing benefits that come from reclaiming our divine feminine essence & honoring ourselves with holistic self-care rituals, rooted in nature. We offer this practice through online programs, coaching services & enlightening articles.

 

What's In A Name?

“The lotus flower blooms most beautifully from the deepest and thickest mud.”

The lotus flower's daily resurrection is certainly interesting, and surely symbolic of revival. It has a fascinating will to live. A lotus seed can withstand thousands of years without water, able to germinate over two centuries later.

The flower also blooms in the most unlikely of places such as the mud of murky river water in Australia or Southern Asia. Not only does it find sanctuary in the muck, but due to the waxy protection layer on its petals, its beauty is blithely unaffected when it re-blooms each morning. It continues to resurrect itself, coming back just as beautiful as it was last seen. With such refusal to accept defeat, it's almost impossible not to associate this flower with unwavering faith. Although cultures have largely dubbed the lotus as a spiritual figurehead, it is most emblematic of the faith within ourselves. It is particularly what the Buddhist proverb, aims to edify; living life with unwavering faith, as the lotus does, ensures the most beautiful revivals.Women hold these same strengths within us.

We believe that with the right wisdom, community tribe & tools, you can tap into divine feminine wisdom to move beautifully through the murky waters that life can present to us, & grow strong & beautiful. Just like the lotus flower.
