Lotus and Rose

Welcome!

Lotus and Rose exists to encourage investigation. You may be anywhere on the spiritual continuum, from Atheism to Zen. Spirituality is not the prerogative of any group or religion. It's simply a way we all have for looking beneath the surface, considering what the brain receives from the body's sensory equipment but realizing that the whole is more than the sum of its parts.

You don't have to belong to any organized group at all to benefit from Lotus and Rose. In fact, being unaffiliated has definite advantages. However, if you are connected in some way with a group, you'll likely find things here that will enhance your perspective. At least, that's our hope.

You won't be asked to accept anything more than you experience yourself. You can be of any race, any nationality, any culture, either gender, gay or straight. If you're a human being, you're welcome at Lotus and Rose.

This is one place where spiritual interests are unrestricted and open to all.

You will not be pressured to accept a particular outlook. You'll only be encouraged to consider the view, to smell the roses and lilies, to get in touch with your own self, and to wake up to the wonder that you are.
