The Lotus Centre is expanding and now has embraced The Tree Of Life Retreat Centre owned by Ian Goudie, which is under development in Salmonier, St. Marys Bay, Newfoundland. Ian has been manifesting a centre based on sacred geometry of the mystical Kabbalah. In alignment with the shifting planetary consciousness, the objective is to provide a sacred place in Nature for participants to experience sustainable, and self sufficient lifestyles while deepening their spiritual practice. The Centre now is open to community participants to help build the Tree of Life Retreat and groom the surrounding grounds.

Meranda Squires grew up in the Ferryland lighthouse on the East Coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Meditation, dance and creativity were naturally inspired by the surroundings of the open and spacious habitat, and her
artistic parents, Gerald and Gail Squires. In 1983, Meranda traveled to India and stayed for seventeen years to pursue an in depth study of Meditation, Yoga and Vedant philosophy. She returned in 2000 to establish her spiritual centre. The Lotus Centre and The Gerald Squires Fine Art Gallery are located at 52 Prescott Street in St. Johns, Newfoundland. Meranda is certified as a teacher of Advanced Studies in Yog Sciences, Vedant Philosophy and the Theory and Practice of Meditation, a SomaYoga Instructor, a Thai-yoga bodywork practitioner, an Enlightenment Master, a Mind Clearer and Counselor.

Ian Goudie, Ph.D. is a musician, sound therapist and an environmental
scientist. He is a native Newfoundlander with a thorough knowledge
of the provinces geography and ecology. His life time experience in
Nature has fine tuned his knowledge of plants and animals. He provides
workshops in attuning the bodys energy system using sacred mantras
and sounds, as well as guided visualizations to determine individual animal
and plant spirit guides. He is a trained chief monitor for enlightenment intensives.
