The Center for Mind-Body Medicine model creates communities of hope and healing. It is the world’s largest, most effective evidence-based program for healing population-wide psychological trauma and stress. Bringing together a variety of techniques drawn from the world’s healing traditions as well as modern medicine, the model teaches whole populations to heal themselves. Lotus is currently offering in-person or virtual Groups and Workshops based on this model!


These are designed to empower you in learning and using tools to manage stress and move through trauma.

This is a great way to quickly learn a few stress-management skills, and explore the science of mind/body medicine. You will learn about and practice skills that focus on the interactions between the mind and body and the powerful ways in which you can participate in your own healing and health. These include various forms of meditation, guided imagery, writing, drawing and movement.


These provide a safe, confidential space to learn tangible skills to calm the physiological responses to stress. Participants learn a new skill each week (meditation, movement, drawing, writing, guided imagery, biofeedback, etc.) and have the opportunity to share their personal experiences, to whatever level is comfortable. Most participants find that by devoting time to self care and reflection, they are better able to manage their challenges.

These groups are educational, but they are not a class. They are therapeutic, but not therapy. They are supportive, but not a support group. They are exactly what everyone needs RIGHT NOW!
