Lotus Wellness Community is a facility designed to assist recovering alcoholics in sustaining sobriety post-detoxification. The wellness community is founded on holistic healing theories and Buddhist ideals. The goal is to create an environment that encourages mental healing, as many alcoholics are dual diagnosis patients. The facility is a sanctuary where recovering alcoholics can seek resonating positive encouragement and mental escape.
The community was named for the lotus flower due to the inspirational Buddhist symbolism. The root of a lotus begins in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the flower lies untouched above the water. This pattern of growth is known within the Buddhist religion to symbolize progress of the soul.
Lotus Wellness Community is composed of four spaces: Rooted Restaurant and Tea Room, Evolve Fitness Center, Progression Meeting Space, and Reflect Park. Each space plays a role in holistic healing. The spaces are located along one continuous path that reflects the Buddhist concept of circumnavigation.
