It's never too late to rediscover your potential®

And make the next chapter
of your life the best!

You Matter!

We founded Lotus Network based on this belief: It’s never too late to rediscover your potential® and make the next chapter of your life the very best. Our goals are to encourage emotional wellness, promote mental health awareness, and create a safe place for women of all ages to learn, connect, grow and share.

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're Here to Do

Lotus Network believes in the power of connections. We raise awareness of purposeful living by inspiring women of all ages to fill their days in authentic and gratifying ways, encouraging women to take on new challenges physically, mentally, and spiritually, and spreading the message that age is no longer a limitation. Last but certainly not least, Lotus Network works to reduce isolation and loneliness by nurturing old friendships, encouraging new relationships, and cultivating a desire for personal growth.

Our Message

Our Leaders

Co-Founders 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 non-profit, Lotus Network. They have tapped into the positive aging- and women’s movements embraced worldwide. This passionate, enthusiastic, and dynamic duo “L and L” is focusing on empowering women to embrace purposeful living and 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.

You owe this moment to yourself

It's time to blossom

Behold the flourishing Lotus. It takes root in the thickest mud and emerges as a beautiful flower, representing purity of body, speech, and mind. Likewise, in our lives, we sometimes become mired—stuck in the mud, so to speak. With focus, effort, and nurturing from people around us, we arise, blossom, and show the world our beauty.
