Dear Friends of the Lotus,

Happy New Year. They say this is the big one! 2012. But really... every day, every hour, every moment that you are aware of living, is the BIG ONE. If the year ahead holds any of the inspiration, courage and fortitude that 2011 brought forward, then it will indeed be another BIG ONE.

White Lotus has been fortunate to meet and serve many extraordinary people who pass on their dreams and put their mark on the world through their expression of what yoga means to them. We have been chosen by Sunset magazine as one of ten life changing experiences to have in 2012 right there amongst biking the Continental Divide, rafting the Colorado (which we've had the good fortune to experience, and you ain't seen nothing till you drift past the Vishnu Shist), and backpacking Yosemite! This is quite an honor which we will strive to live up to. The center has now planted countless Olive trees which we hope will not only bring beauty and oxygen to the planet but also to be a symbol of peace with their steadfast, patient growth and enduring nature. Please come and share in the beauty that the White Lotus has to offer.

We know that life is really imitating art when BurningMan has made the chic and hoity pages of Town and Country magazine and has also been chosen as one of the top events of cultural import. Could the world really be stretching its imagination?

So this is what we wish for you in the BIG ONE. That you stretch your imagination, that you have moments of clarity when you tap into what is really going on which may be very different than the channel you are listening to in your head, that you have the opportunity to give and receive love freely, that you have well being, and that your art not only imitates life but that your life is an art.

Happy New Year. We wish everyone an inspired and enlightening 2012.

Love,

Tracey, Ganga and the Lotus family
