About Pink Lotus
Pink Lotus is a holistic wellness company that was established in 2011. Since then, the company has been donating its earnings from festivals and events to a non-profit community enterprise in Temple Cloud. In 2022, the company was awarded several different types of funding, including funding from SSE, which helped them to set up Temple Cloud Circus Community Interest Company. The company’s mission is to offer holistic creative aerial circus experiences, natural sustainable regenerative treatments, education, and healing solutions to underprivileged, homeless, or traumatized members of their communities. Pink Lotus aims to eventually become a charity that offers the same high-quality luxury service to those who can afford it while simultaneously providing funded, low-cost, inclusive, affordable, or free services to those who would significantly benefit. The company offers a wide range of services, including organic herbs, tinctures, essential oils, natural medicine products, clothing, jewelry, trapeze boots, festival healing spaces, aerial circus classes, and training programs.
