Why Are We So Popular? 

When was the last time you picked up a local magazine and read something that changed everything about who your are, where you came from, how old is humanity, is there a better way to maintain a healthy life, or where are we headed as a human race? One of our issues was an interview with John Anthony West who pushed back the date of our human beginning thousands of years. This is why our magazine gets picked up and read which means your ad gets seen.

Free Calendar of Events

This service is for those in the community who offer a service/event for example, meditation workshops and training, special community events, etc.) that are open to the public for free/small donation or for which the cost is so low that advertising would be cost prohibitive. This service is offered by Lotus Guide so everyone in the community can have a voice and connect with others of like mind. If you’re an advertiser this rule is waived, which makes it nice if you have a time-sensitive event you would like posted on the printed Calendar of Events (also online).
