Lotus Gathering isn't a festival. And it isn't a retreat. It's a sacred container for doing deep, inner healing work while surrounded by beauty and combining conscious connection with commUnity and pure, joyful fun. This carefully curated experience won't just heal your inner child; it'll also invite them to come out to play. We are still adding to our offerings, so check back soon for more. We'll also add days and times here as we finalize our schedule.

Introduction to Human Design

Join Alizabeth Grace of Ananda Embodied for a conversation about human design, a comprehensive system for understanding your personality, energetic aura, and tendencies, to better navigate all aspects of your life. Weaving together principles from various spiritual systems, including The I Ching, astrology, Kabbalah, the Hindu-Brahmin chakra system, and quantum physics, human design uses precise details of your birthto provide a body graph, or a blueprint of who you are.


Reflections and Revelations

What we see in the mirror is often seen through the lens of our programming, cultural ideas of beauty and what we should "be," personal insecurities, and others perceptions that we have chosen, usually unconsciously, to internalize. This powerful workshop, led by Life Coach Amanda Fowler and author of "A Little High Vibe A Little Fuck It: 30 Days to Drop The Mediocre Bullshit and Start Living Your Best Life," asks us to look beyond those as we engage in mirror work to create a truer and more helpful reflection of ourselves and reveal deeper personal truths. 

Anchoring Gratitude

Learn how gratitude literally rewires us, creating not just a more positive way of experiencing the world, but also setting you up to receive more of the things for which we express gratitude. Led by Cynthia Gomez of The Gaia Revolution, this is a workshop about the power of perception to help gain from every experience through reframing. We'll end with a neurolinguistic programming visualization exercise designed to help us tap into feelings of deep, joyous gratitude on command. 


Honoring the Medicine: Sacred Cacao Ceremony by Ananda Embodied 

Step into the realm of ancient wisdom with "Honoring the Medicine: Sacred Cacao Ceremony" by Ananda Embodied. With deep reverence, we invite you to experience the time-honored tradition of cacao, cherished by Central and South American indigenous cultures for millennia. This communal gathering is a sacred space where we come together to connect with the Earth, our own hearts, and one another. During this transformative ceremony, we explore the knowledge and many benefits of cacao, delving into intentional practices that enhance your connection with this sacred plant medicine. Journey briefly through the Mayan calendar, and align with the energy of the specific day, infusing our gathering with its resonance. As we partake in this ceremonial experience, immerse yourself in the enchanting strains of intentional medicine music, serving as a harmonious backdrop to anchor us in the frequencies of the sacred. Join us on a journey of connection, healing, and inner exploration through the art of cacao.

Breathwork Alchemy

Embark on a profound journey of self-transformation with TELOS369 in this powerful offering called “Breathwork Alchemy.” Breathwork serves as a potent catalyst for healing, transmutation, and the manifestation of your deepest desires. Guided by the wisdom of ancient alchemy and energetic principles, this workshop offers a sacred space where you can harness the power of your breath to unlock and release all that no longer serves you. Through the alchemical process, you'll discover the keys to anchoring yourself in the reality you aspire to create. Join us for this transformative experience, where you'll embrace the full potential of your breath and step into a new, empowered version of yourself.

Forgiveness by the Fire 

Self-care isn’t just about treating ourselves well, but also about doing the hard work of being present with challenging feelings so we can move past them to align with the highest version of ourselves. We'll then talk about the power of forgiveness and then Cynthia Gomez of The Gaia Revolution will guide us through an impactful visualization exercise to free ourselves from anger, shame, and resentment towards ourselves and others, allowing ourselves to feel lighter and freer than ever. Weaving a cacao ceremony into the experience of gifting ourselves forgiveness, we'll release both that which no longer serves us and positive intentions into the universe by way of air and fire. Take time to write what you’d like to release on our flame-shaped effigy, as well as your intentions for your life, and watch them be carried up in smoke during this very special burn.


Primal Contact Dance

This transformative experience is designed to enhance your reflexive actions, foster active listening, and nurture trust within a supportive environment, all guided by the synergy of music and motion. Unleash your primal instincts as we delve into the realm of animal energies, tapping into our natural state of instinctual play. Connect with like-minded individuals and venture into the world of physicality, space, and interpersonal dynamics through the powerful medium of dance.

Late-Night CandleLit Sound Baths

Cacao Ceremony

Aside from having a ton of health benefits, ceremonial cacao is a powerful heart opener traditionally used by ancient tribes elders in the Amazon during times of conflict to help reduce otherness and achieve compromise. Here, we'll be using cacao as part of two larger ceremonies—one to ground intention for the weekend, and another as part of a forgiveness ceremony designed to cultivate compassion for both the self and others and gift ourselves forgiveness.

Effigy Burn

A large, three-dimensional wooden flame will go up in flames, the smoke carrying up to the universe that which we want to surrender, release and transmute for ourselves, along with our good intentions, so be sure to take time prior to this effigy burn to grab a marker and write on its very special effigy prior to the burn.


Kirtan is a rhythmic, collective performance in which words and mantras holding a high spiritual vibration, usually in the Sanskrit language, are repeated in a call-and-response musical format. This is a powerful way to step into present mindfulness and tap into the power of the universe, the unified field, or source energy. 

Closing Sound Bath & Reiki Circle

As we prepare to leave this sacred container and return to our lives, let's come together one last time to ground in the learning and healing we've done individually and collectively with an immersive sound bath and closing Reiki circle.



High-vibrational live music across multiple genres (e.g., electronic, conscious rap and hip-hop, and soulful jam) will run nightly on TWO stages, starting after the last workshop of the day, and will be followed by a drum circle and silent disco ecstatic dance. We are so excited to welcome back some of the amazing artists who joined us last year. Stay tuned for many more!
