Lotus Heart Sanctuary

The aim at Lotus Heart Sanctuary is to foster a strong community of people who love and respect our Mother Earth and all her inhabitants – an engaged community who will unite, stand together and speak out for social justice.

At Lotus there is no interest in trends, fads or examining dietary choices, the only interest is to advocate a complete compassionate lifestyle that will benefit our planet, human & non-human animals, and bring an end to all oppression.

Please use the Lotus Resource section to learn how to adopt and maintain such a lifestyle.
