In response to the current pandemic, Flowering Lotus’s weekend retreats will be offered exclusively online until it is safe for us to meet together in person.

The need for the Dharma is especially great during this difficult time. We invite you to open yourself to these wonderful teachers, experience the blessing of sangha, and find peace and tranquility in our virtual retreats.


The Mission of Flowering Lotus Meditation is to create and promote a variety of accessible opportunities for meditation practice in a non-denominational setting. All retreats and other events are based on Buddhist teachings of mindfulness and compassion and welcome students from diverse backgrounds.
