About the Lotus

The Lotus is an ancient symbol linking the lower human consciousness to the higher Self. Its seed holds all possibility. This seed is planted in darkness, veiled by the distractions that live in the murky waters. As it struggles to make its way to the surface, the Light is its only guide. As the Lotus moves from the lower realities to the higher realities, from the unmanifest to the manifest, from the darkness into Light, the Lotus is transformed from a simple seed into a Crown for Kings and Queens...forever floating on tranquil waters.

New Mexico Retreat Center

It started with an idea …a vision. In this vision, Rev. Tara Lang saw a great Retreat Center that was committed to offering a safe and nurturing environment for guests of diverse religious and spiritual beliefs -- a place where people could re-charge by experiencing inner peace and tranquility. By nourishing the body, mind and soul, this future center will provide guests with the highest quality spiritual experience.
The location of the future Retreat Center is in Belen, New Mexico at the edge of a giant mesa. The spectacular views of the Sierra Ladrone Mountains and Ladrone Peak make it magical. The land overlooks a protected green space and gorge where a stream flows during the spring season. There is nothing like it in this world. It is a place of mystical beauty.    Read More
