**PLEASE SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE COMING OUT**
Lotus Bend is a community, day retreat center, and sanctuary for individuals, couples and groups. Through workshops, programs, and events we provide opportunities to celebrate, heal, transform, and integrate body, mind, and spirit. We offer our land, rich in beauty and wisdom, as a home to a community that extends beyond the land to create a force for positive change in the world that fosters peace, gratitude, understanding, and communion.
Set on seven acres at the end of a small secluded neighborhood and 1000's of acres at the far end of Mopac, this is little spot is just 25 mins from downtown, yet worlds away from the frantic pace that is the city.
The space is set for private events, workshops, day retreats and public offerings and is a working community in the making. On a dry/wet watershed in the "bend" Little Bear Creek, there is vertically no visual contact with the outside and is a wonderful canvas for opening up to the raw elements.
We are a group of practitioners, friends, and family whose belief is that as we expand the heart, mind and spirit, we unlock our inner potential which opens the door to creating beauty, fostering change, and supporting peaceful and mutual coexistence.
Lotus Bend is a sacred place, a place of safety for healing, discovery, reconnection, recreation and reaching out through inward reflection, meditation, ritual, rest, play, reconciliation and communion.
Lotus Bend is a wish, a promise to plant the seeds of awareness, wisdom, stewardship, and action to create a more inclusive, just and compassionate society for all.
Our emblem the lotus flower reminds us that we emerge from the primordial clay through the waters of experience and blossom into the bright sunshine of enlightenment, rising high above …but for a brief period.
