Yellow Lotus Flower: How One Lonesome Seed Rose up from the Muck
Yellow Lotus Flower is a sing-a-long book for the soul. The story is told by the flower herself, reminiscing about a time when she was a scared little seed, stuck in the murky bottoms of the pond, unsure of herself and if life would ever be different. Luckily, she encounters helpers along the way, like a magical rainbow fish, singing frogs and the benevolent sun, who offer her wisdom and support. Ultimately, the Yellow Lotus Flower has to find her own courage to trust in the darkness and the unknown, in order to bloom.
“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without mud.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
Yellow Lotus Flower is an archetypal story of transformation that speaks to both young and old audiences. Throughout life, we go through difficult challenges that can make us feel stuck and afraid. It is important to remember that these challenges help us to bring forth our highest capacities. Yellow Lotus Flower offers us this wisdom through a whimsical, musical, and beauty-filled story.
We need a little more love, in the form of dollars, to get to the finish line of publishing our children's sing-a-long book about risin' up from the muck by mid-November! We would be so grateful for your contributions, and thank you to everyone who has already given to our previous fundraising efforts. The money from this fund will go towards our marketing, launch events, shipping, and music video. I will donate five free sing-a-long book readings to Oakland Public Schools and UCSF Children's Hospital if we make it to our $2500 fundraising goal.
