The Phoenix and the Lotus have powerful mythological and personal significance to Lotus Rising Project:

The Phoenix represents death and rebirth. For us this means, as a society, we must shed ourselves of our old ways of being and doing which no longer work for us and birth ourselves anew from what remains.

The Lotus symbolizes ascension and mastery. A lotus is a stunning and beautiful flower which rises above the murky waters of its birthplace to thrive in a new world. Here the lotus takes full advantage of the sun’s nourishing rays. For us this means our ventures and social movements must have the tenacity and strength to successfully travel through that which challenges us most to arrive in a new land with brighter possibilities.
