Author and musician Lotus Kay returns to the podcast today to talk about her new book, Friends Lift You Up, and the original music she has been releasing since her last visit on the podcast. I loved chatting with her about the book and how writing it helped with her own healing and in navigating autism. Lotus Kay is such a magnificent example of the way that younger folks are truly leading the us all into a more compassionate and just world.
Lotus Kay is a singer songwriter and children’s book author who has been published in magazines such as Kindness Magazine, Thrive Global, New Leaves, Light of Consciousness, and Voya: Voice of Youth Advocates and more. She is a recipient of a grant from Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots program for her work creating an educational campaign called Bears for Cares to educate youth about endangered species and wildlife. She is the author of the children’s books More Beautiful Than Heaven, Billie the Octopus, A Thanksgiving for the Turkeys and Jenny the Chimpanzee, and Friends Lift You Up , all in collaboration with Bears for Cares to educate kids on the importance and beauty of nature, and motivate them to help protect the Earth, and create a kinder, more compassionate world. She is twenty one years old.
