At Flowering Lotus Meditation, we believe in Kalyāṇa-mittatā, the Buddhist concept of "admirable friendship" within Buddhist community life. We honor these partners as sanghas that may be operating closer to you and have more regular offerings than just retreats.

Hi! :) My name is DeeDee Jones. I am an Intuitive Energy Healer, Meditation Facilitator, Yoga Instructor and Holistic Health Coach. From an early age I knew this was my Way of Being, but with no way of expressing it, no road map, and the world in my ears, heart and head I had no way of knowing what direction to journey.
