Celebrate Peace With BLC This Wednesday!

Paula Whang-Ramos

"Let us encourage one another with spiritual friendship, conversations that are uplifting, and remembrance of our sacred purpose in life."
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, 08/30/2016

It has been almost 30 years since my husband and I moved to South County. We loved the rural country, the small town, and the slower pace of life. While my earth life was well cared for, my spiritual life was not. I missed the spiritual diversity of the greater Bay Area from where we came. In South County, beautiful spiritual doorways in local houses of worship felt too narrow to fit my own limitless experience of the Divine and welcome my many spiritual friends from diverse spiritual traditions.

And then, in 2005, I walked through the doorway of the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in San Jose. Fourteen years later, I have yet to find the edges of CSE's spiritual doors, as they open wide to welcome sincere seekers from all and no faith traditions. On November 6, 2014, Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Spiritual Director and Founder of CSE, blessed the Blue Lotus Center into being, as an affiliate meditation center of CSE.

For the past 5 years, BLC has served as an oasis of peace that welcomes sincere seekers from all backgrounds. At BLC, we focus on the Oneness that joins us, instead of apparent differences that may divide us. BLC continues to hold a steadfast presence of peace through many challenging acts of nature and humans in our communities and our country. Join us this Wednesday, as we meditate and celebrate BLC's 5 years of service to sincere seekers from all of our beautiful communities. Enjoy a time in spiritual community with others who share a commitment to the sacred Purpose that indwells us all. All are welcome.

Meditate superconsciously with us at Blue Lotus Center. Awaken, study, and be inspired in a meditative community committed to reclaim and to live from the spiritual integrity and wholeness that we all are. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers and newcomers from all backgrounds.


“If anything disturbs your peace, practice having faith that divine grace is already actively at work restoring wholeness and well-being.

Then make any necessary adjustments in harmony with that insight.”
Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Spiritual Director, Center for Spiritual Enlightenment
