Lotus Heart Sanctuary is an inclusive Scottish based independent grassroots non-profit organisation for human & non-human animals, environmentalists, vegans, peace activists, animal/human rights activists, people following a SBNR/spiritual path – or anyone who lives a truly kind, compassionate, caring, ethically motivated and conscious lifestyle….or who wants to learn about starting to do so!
The idea for Lotus Heart Sanctuary was born in 2010 following a retreat with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Immediately after the retreat a vision board was created displaying various images including Scotland, people, cattle, veganism, therapies and tourism – this was the representation that this “sanctuary” would be a place to serve our fellow earthlings (human & non-human) and the very planet we live on – Mother Earth.We wanted to create a space where human & non-human animals could come together and simply be as one in love, peace & harmony – just as we are meant to be.We inter-are with everything in the cosmos –Mother Earth is mother to all earthlings, plants and minerals, and we all need each other to survive – Mother Earth can survive without us, but not the other way about.
Sadly however, so many of us humans spend our entire lives completely rejecting this factAt Lotus our ethos is to spread as much love, positive energy and awareness as we can.
With Lotus Heart we have created a platform for everyone who shares our dream of a greener, kinder, fairer, more compassionate, inclusive and conscientious world.
There are further ongoing plans to be implemented, and we are constantly growing and developing new little Lotuses – so please keep checking back with our website & social media to see what’s new.
