Our Guiding Principles
Thank you, EVERYONE, for your generous words of encouragement and to all our guests who have to date shared their insights. Our Podcasting would not be where it is now if it were not for our listeners. You are the ones that make our podcasting go round. It has been an exciting few months with more amazing interviews scheduled.
The world of audio is vast. According to psychologists, the sense of hearing is one that sets memory the longest. Good chance you could recite a TV ad from when you were a child. Perhaps I remember all the words to Spiderman! I love consuming podcasts as my way of learning because I can multitask. It is portable learning: listen while on a walk, in a car, on a train, on a plane. Have earbuds, can learn.
For those who wish to join in on the fun of the podcast world, here are the basics you need to hook yourself up to a very efficient way to learn and be entertained.
Listen on your Computer:
The simplest way to listen on your computer is to visit the website hosting the podcast, find the appropriate page and click on the link provided. For the Meeting Architect Podcast, you can find it on our website under The Meeting Architect Podcast tab.
Listen on your Smartphone:
The most convenient way to listen to a podcast is through a mobile device.
If you have an Apple product you can use the Apple Podcasts app which can be downloaded from the app store or search your apps as it has become standard to add it to the devices.
If you have an Android phone you can download a podcasting app such as Stitcher or Spotify.
Once you have the apps downloaded simply search for the podcasts you are looking for or browse to find ones you might be interested in.
Listen in Your Car:
The most common place to listen to podcasts is in the car. You will need to have a Bluetooth connection to do so and most recent cars have this capability. No Bluetooth connection? Then you can use a cable to connect your phone to the car’s audio output.
Once you have found the podcast that you like make sure to hit the subscribe button so that you can receive notifications when the next episode for your favorite podcast has been uploaded.

Lotus Flower Book Club
There’s something we find very special about developing relationships with like-minded people to create community of culturally-sensitive readers. That’s why we are so excited to about our new cutting-edge Lotus Flower Book Club.
We came together to create a book club with the specific intention to have fun, open, and sometimes controversial book inspired conversations in a culturally inspiring virtual platform. It doesn’t matter the persons label or situation, as long as they have an interest in respectfully discussing and learning more about Black culture, race, relationships, history, pop culture, and other topics than all are welcome.
Of course, as is the Lotus Flower Book Club way, our curated reading list will include a variety of book gems, old, new, classic, bestseller, obscure, and self-published, that were written for, by, or about people of the African Diaspora. The livestream book discussion is open for comments and questions from people across the web.
We meet on the third Thursday of each at 7pm Est via https://www.facebook.com/reginavituousladi
Additionally, in the lead up to #DiscussionDay, participants can share their insight in a dedicated group we’ve create specifically for that book discussion at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/drplotusflower
Also don’t be surprised by our surprise guest participants. It could the be author, a noted content expert, or just someone to add to the conversation.
So what’s next you ask? Which books are on this “curated list” of book gems? Well I’m glad you asked…
OUR FEATURE BOOK THIS MONTH:
Shifting: The Double Lives of Black Women in America
About the Book
Based on the African American Women's Voices Project, Shifting reveals that a large number of African American women feel pressure to com-promise their true selves as they navigate America's racial and gender bigotry. Black women "shift" by altering the expectations they have for themselves or their outer appearance. They modify their speech. They shift "White" as they head to work in the morning and "Black" as they come back home each night. They shift inward, internalizing the searing pain of the negative stereotypes that they encounter daily. And sometimes they shift by fighting back.
There is something in the book for all who are not Black and female. Anyone who has ever been prejudged, put down, or overlooked will likely see parts of their own experience in these chapters.
Discussion Day Info
All participants must register via The Lotus Flower Facebook Group for the book club discussion.
The discussion will take place on Thursday, July 15th at 7PM EST DrPamela Regina Robinson
Happy Reading and Happy Blooming

We need your support to build our ministry and to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He gave to His disciples and through them to us. He said: I have been given all authority in heaven and earth. Therefore go and make disciples in all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and then teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this – that I am with you always, even to the end of the world . “
