Lotus Shores Siargao – Nestled in the jungles of the wave-fringed island that is Siargao, we are given the sacred opportunity to practice deep listening and find deep rest. Preserving as much of the natural landscape, the retreat features large gardens, open spaces and architecture inspired by a combination of traditional and minimalist styles. The dedicated spaces for practice (Durga Temple and Yoga Dojo) and communal areas (Kali Ma Cafe & Restaurant) hold a grandeur that leads the mind towards the infinite. The comfortable and minimalist interior of the accommodation inspire clarity of mind and and the inward turning of one’s awareness.
Lotus Shores is a space where visitors can experience the healing power of the island and the warmth and light-hearted spirit of the Filipino people, in a way that inspires and supports the unfolding of our higher identity: as the compassionate, loving, blissful observer of this beautiful Lila (divine, cosmic play).
Kali Ma Cafe in Lotus Shores – Come home to the Mother-Goddess’ kitchen, where all beings are safe and loved, where every meal is a celebration of Life– of its unity, beauty and abundance.
Kali, the life-giving force that gives rise to the animate world is the same energy that drives of transformation and spiritual evolution. The cafe is an homage to the life-giving mother, who has provided us with all that we need to realize our true nature. We create our food the way we envion she would, sourcing produce from our growing vegetable garden and the island’s organic farms. All meals are made with intention, by hand, and from scratch. Nothing from a can or plastic bag. We work with time (e.g organic farming methods, fermentation, etc.), nature, high vibrations, and loving hands.
A plant-based diet is the actualization of the potential of the individual to create change in his/her immediate experience, community, and for the world at large.
