Make a Lotus Lantern!

In this free Art of Healing virtual workshop led by Kristin Heron, each participant will learn the technique to fold a Lotus Lantern, which can then be used as a light to symbolically guide your unwavering faith along life’s journey. Learn why the lotus has long-been seen as an emblem of rebirth and survival.

The workshop will conclude with a simple meditation that uses the lantern as a totem, that can be practiced daily for a moment of pause.
