What is the LOTUS Life?
The lotus flower, prized for it's ethereal beauty and serene scent, grows out of the mud and muck. Because of it's humble beginnings, the lotus has become a symbol of the beauty that grows in "ugly" places. Just like the flower, we often find ourselves stuck in the muck, weighed down by a life full of tragedy and chaos. We may even feel at times that we are drowning in despair, worry, fear, regret and resentment. Like the lotus, we can create our best lives out of our chaos, rise above our tragedies and use our negative experiences as a nutrient-rich soil in which to grow.
The LOTUS Life is YOUR best life, created and designed by your own imagination, built on a foundation of the wisdom you have earned through your personal experiences. This course is designed to help you recognize and enhance your strengths. Additional courses are available with a more in-depth exploration of the following segments:
Each segment includes activities, exercises and writing assignments designed to help educate you as well as help you reflect on and implement the life lessons of the LOTUS program. In addition to the course curriculum, you will receive personalized attention, direction and feedback from your instructor, Elizabeth T. Anderson, founder of LOTUS Life Learning.
