Mission Statement

LotusFest is a collaborative community endeavor to inform, encourage and facilitate complete wellness for citizens of Muncie and surrounding areas. Wellness includes 8 components: Emotional, Occupational, Spiritual, Intellectual, Social, Physical, Financial and Environment; LotusFest provides an opportunity for people to learn about all these branches and find resources to assist them in achieving health, wellbeing and optimal quality of life. LotusFest is an annual event that raises funds for a local organization while hosting a day full of fun, informative, and interactive activities. Participants make new friends and find new opportunities to help them reach their health and wellness goals. Health practitioners, business professionals, and people in the community come together for a holistic approach to holistic living; everyone contributes to benefit a chosen local organization.

LotusFest started as a project for an assignment in a Yoga Teacher Training course and
blossomed into a fun community collaborative that brings health and wellness professionals, businesses, and local residents together in a unified force to 1) empower us all to live healthy and happy lives; and 2) support the good works of a selected non-for-profit organization in our area. LotusFest 2016 is supporting A Better Way.
