As we work to help improve the lives of those in our community, his message of the power of being kind will now be spread throughout Northern New England. I can't tell you how many people came up to me throughout the rest of our conference to talk to me about changes they plan on making in their lives as a result of Michael's message. It was such a great way to kick off our conference!”

KEYNOTES . MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS . TRUTHSHOPS
In this one of a kind program, learn how a fulfilling life begins the moment you confront one of your greatest fears: the truth. During this interactive "Truthshop," attendees are inspired to live and speak their truth while encouraging others to do the same. Through honest conversations and empathy building exercises, discover how vulnerability and authenticity can enhance all areas of your life. By recognizing that everyone has a story, judgmental habits will be replaced by qualities such as acceptance, trust, empathy, and even forgiveness. If you've ever felt misunderstood or would like to see others in a more compassionate light, this is the program for you.
Childhood trauma. Career stress. Digital Addiction. Financial concerns. The loss of a loved one. Divorce. Depression. These and a myriad of other conditions remind us that everyone has a story of struggle -- experiences and unforeseen hardships that shape our hearts and minds. For it's not a matter of if difficulties arise, but rather, when.
According to the World Health Organization, each year, 350 million people will experience a depressive episode. Mind you, these figures do not take into account the millions who suffer in silence. And despite these staggering numbers, we continue to treat anxiety, chronic despair, and other forms of mental illness like a shameful secret. The time has come to put an end to the stigma. For an affliction of the mind deserves the same level of care and compassion as cancer, diabetes, or any disease for that matter.
Lotus Emotional Wellness Programs offer simple, yet life-altering methods for building a stronger immunity toward day-to-day stress which can lead to persistent unhappiness. Sharing his revolutionary Kindness Therapy and SRA (Serotonin Raising Activity) philosophies, Michael will teach you how strengthening and healing the mind begins by developing a kinder, more compassionate heart.
“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus without the mud.” ― Thích Nhất Hạnh
Offered as a keynote or workshop, Lotus Programs also place a strong emphasis on emotional resiliency and the undeniable power of the human spirit. Attendees will be challenged to cultivate a new, hopeful perspective on their innate ability to convert adversity into wisdom, strength, and compassionate service toward others.
