Celebrate October!

Just as fall is one of our favorite seasons, October is one of our favorite months. We love October because it is nature’s last hurrah before winter sets in. There is no better time to embrace the season with corn mazes, full fall colors, and kids in costume.

October also brings us Breast Cancer Awareness month. No matter who you are or where you live, breast cancer may touch your life. During October, survivors and those with breast cancer are celebrated and encouraged to share their stories. With this fact in mind, and because both our mothers had breast cancer, we’ve chosen to start our 4-part Connector Series all about women’s health, with our first event highlighting breast health. In partnership with Rose Women’s Hospital, Jewish Colorado, J Screen, and Sharsheret, we are hosting an in-person event on September 29, 2022 at noon. You will have the opportunity to learn from a panel of breast cancer experts about the latest cutting-edge, whole-health approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. So, please join us for an afternoon of education, empowerment, and hope in a one-of-a-kind hospital dedicated to women’s care. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn and connect. In-person seating is limited to 80 guests! Click HERE to register.

Speaking of women’s health, it’s never too late to talk about healthy aging in the physical and mental realm! So, please join us virtually for another Let’s Talk About It program on Tuesday, October 25th, 2022, at Noon MT. We will discuss what it means to age gracefully; how can we create our own template for healthy aging? Come join us for a discussion on the art of aging well, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Click HERE to register through Zoom.

What could be more opportune timing than seeking out potentially haunted houses in October? Join us and Phil Goodstein on Wednesday, October 19th, at 10:00 AM for a 2-hour walk through the (potentially haunted) Capitol Hill neighborhood. Capitol Hill is Denver’s most historic neighborhood, bisected by East Colfax. Since the 1970s, rich ghost lore has sprung up about the area. Are there a couple of heads floating in the tunnels under the Capitol? Why did a table levitate at a restaurant in a haunted house at 1128 Grant Street? Learn about the sex, sleaze, spooks, and scoundrels of this part of Denver. Click HERE to get your tickets.

Moments of intense change come in different forms. Sometimes, something upends our lives and changes us forever. When you read about this month’s Lotus Lady, Susan Brody, you will see how she learned to balance grief and joy. Susan shares with us how she was able to balance her traumatic past and come to a place where she could move forward with renewed hope and meaning. We are so grateful to Susan for sharing her very personal truth. Click HERE to read her story.

Lotus Network believes that bringing creative programming, a website with amazing content, and education resources that benefits women can change the world for the better. That’s why we created the Friends of Lotus donor program. Please consider donating so we can continue to bring you fabulous programming and educational resources. For more information, click HERE.

Thanks to our amazing board member, Gwen Crawford, we are proud to announce that we are creating another Conversation Salon. This salon is a monthly in-person conversation that is a safe, comfortable place where women can come together to share stories, listen, and be listened to. We’ll get to know each other and discuss the topics you want to chat about. Register HERE for this in-person programming. Attendance is free and spots are limited to 12 guests.

With everything going on in the world right now, it’s important to shed light on the ways we can elevate ourselves and our relationships. Our hope is that there is something for everyone within our network. Whether it is attending our Connector Event, joining us virtually to discuss healthy aging, or enjoying the crisp air of a haunted walk while connecting with friends, put yourself first and connect with us as we step into this beautiful month.
