Lotus Blooming™ Play Groups offer families the space and opportunity to practice the loving communication and interactions necessary for healthy relationships. People learn through modeling and so the Lotus Blooming™ Play Groups provide the visual examples necessary for learning the most loving methods of interaction. These sessions are called Play Groups because play is how we will be learning. When people play, they learn faster and better, plus play and love are closely connected.
