Ride the winds of change, unafraid.
The Lotus Institute was founded by Dr. Peggy Rowe Ward and Dr. Larry Ward, senior dharma teachers ordained by peace activist and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Deeply inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Thich Nhat Hanh, they have committed their lives to non-violent social change, healing, and transformation at all levels, from individuals & communities to the global scale. Peggy and Larry transmit a rare combination of academic, lived, and embodied wisdom that helps actualize healing for self and community. Their background in Buddhist practice, justice/service work, psychology, corporate coaching, education, trauma/resiliency training and somatics creates a powerful dynamic for healing and change. Peggy and Larry are co-authors of the book, Love's Garden: A Guide to Mindful Relationships.
