October 17th was a moment of culmination as we opened the doors of the LOTUS Studio. So many people have come together to make the idea of this nurturing space a reality.

LOTUS stands for Loving Ourselves Through Unique Senses. The LOTUS Studio is a tremendous resource for healing, integrating a sensory room, music nook, recording studio, artistic expression room, and a large activity space that opens to an outdoor courtyard. Through expressive therapeutic modalities, our children can express their individuality through creating a piece of art and practice emotional regulation through yoga and drama. The LOTUS Studio will enhance the existing care children receive at The Bradley Center and holds untold benefits for our community. One child shared, “I like to take all my stressors and throw it into art.” We cannot wait to see how children give voice to their creativity through this space.

We would like to extend our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to those who made The Bradley Center’s LOTUS Studio a reality through their generosity.

Thanks to you, the children of The Bradley Center will have more options for creativity and healing.
