HI, I’M KELSEY ‘LOTUS’ WONG.
~ Welcome to my Personal Portfolio Site & Blog ~
A bit about my journey so far...
On the first day of the New Year in 2010, I had an encounter that I can only describe as divine.
What began as a holistic way to cure depression and heal a broken heart revealed itself to be an entry point into exploring my spiritual path and the fullness of life in an entirely new way. I had never formally learned about religion or spirituality and at twenty-one I started waking up to what it means to return to my true nature and to live a conscious, liberated, and love-filled life.
I've been exploring life's mysteries ever since.
EXTERNALLY, my passionate curiosity for transformation has guided me around the world to work with social entrepreneurs, conscious leaders, and innovative teams. While the variation of people and projects is wide, the underlying purpose has been to help bring their highest, wildest visions to life. At present, I consult with DSIL Global, an innovation company that builds creative capacity in leaders across the corporate and international development sectors using design thinking. I also work with Delivering Happiness, a culture coach-sultancy that applies the science of happiness and positive psychology to workplaces around the globe.
INTERNALLY, my deep longing for love, truth and wholeness has led me to invest in my own inner healing, heart expansion, and personal transformation. I've experimented with many healing modalities and explored wisdom teachings such as Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism, Shamanism, and Advaita Vedanta (non-duality). This exploration has revealed what I call a "dancing stillness" within me. This creative vibrance of my spirit expresses itself through art, movement, and dance as well as a profound love for yoga, meditation, and the natural world.
"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today I am treating my life as one great experiment. I’ve spend the last two and a half years traveling, working, and exploring full-time from East to West primarily in North America, Mexico, and Southeast Asia. I just recently moved back to Oakland, California with the intention of being of service specifically with women and in communities of color. I also yearn to find my voice and come into my artistry more fully here.
With gratitude and grace,
