Who we Are
Welcome to the organization that believes it’s never too late to rediscover your potential and make the next chapter of your life the very best.
What We are Here to Do
Lotus Network believes in the power of connections: raising awareness of purposeful living by inspiring women of all ages to fill their days doing something that is authentic and gratifying, encouraging women to take on new challenges physically, mentally and spiritually, spreading the message that age is no longer a limitation and last but certainly not least… working to reduce isolation and loneliness by nurturing old friendships, encouraging new relationships and cultivating a desire for personal growth.
Guides on our Journey
Lisa and Leslie have partnered in the event planning industry for the past 36 years, creating memorable events. These co-directors are using their skills to make memories of an entirely different sort with their new non-profit. With Lotus Network, they have tapped into the positive-aging and women’s movements embraced worldwide. This passionate, enthusiastic, and dynamic duo “L and L,” are focusing on empowering women to embrace purposeful living and to prioritize one’s self. They understand the power of building strong and meaningful connections and want to encourage all women to rise to their full potential.
Why We Do What We Do
Lotus Network provides opportunities for women to create meaningful connections, personal growth and purposeful living through social and educational resources.
We envision a world where all women, regardless of age, stage of life, geography or identity, feel meaningfully connected to a community and are empowered to find their unique purpose.

Recovering from Pandemic Burnout
With Featured Guest Margit Cox Henderson, Ph.D.
What we've all been through, and for some are still going through in the wake of the global pandemic, has been, well, unimaginable. Only through the support of family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers, have many of us survived. Many carry various scars from this experience and now we need to examine these scars and begin to heal.
In this meaningful talk, you will learn about the three steps to Emotional Wound Care that help us transition to a place of peace and empowerment.Read more
