I am writing to you as a partner in sharing information, techniques and processes to help people transform their lives. As the founder of Flowering Lotus Meditation and Retreat Center, I am committed to providing an opportunity for people to heal. The Board of Directors and I have decided to suspend all tuitions for retreats, and trust in the generosity of others to help us meet our expenses. We are located in Magnolia, MS. just 1 1/2 hours from New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Jackson.
I am writing to you for help. We need to have every retreat full in order to meet bare expenses. Would you please spread the word about our center? Would you consider sending out a one time email letting your students know that our retreats are donation based now and that we welcome everyone regardless of their ability to pay?
We currently have a capacity for 32 students and are looking to expand our facility to be able to accomodate 42 students. We have applied for a permit to erect a 40 ft. yurt (circular dome shaped building, opened spaced, with windows all around it and a skylight) so that we can comfortably have yoga, movement, martial arts and dance classes as well as meditation classes. We have local yoga teachers who are willing to teach free to the community.
We are a residential facility. Our upcoming retreat is October 6-9. It is a Mindfulness Meditation retreat to be taught by Carla Brennan who is a Vipassana (Insight) meditation teacher from Santa Cruz, CA. She is a psychotherapist and has taught mindfulness meditation for over 20 years. We will offer gentle yoga and stretch classes during the retreat.
Our facility is available for rental if you wish to hold your own event or retreat.

May you continue to be blessed in every way. May our paths cross as we share our gifts with others.
Sending you peace, light and love,
