Lotus Ashram

Lotus Ashram

The Lotus Ashram was a Spiritualist fellowship tied together by the mediumship of Noel Street and his wife, Coleen Street. It was established in Miami, Florida, in 1917. Street was born and raised in New Zealand but moved to the United States and was ordained originally by the Universal Church of the Master. For a number of years he toured the United States annually. He and his wife lectured, and he did psychic readings and healings. He was known for drawing upon the teaching of the Maori people of his native New Zealand. Coleen, not a medium, taught yoga, physical fitness through vegetarianism, and proper food preparation.

Street wrote a number of booklets on various topics related to mediumship and reincarnation. In 1975 he opened a center in Chillicothe, Ohio, which later relocated to Texas in 1977. Last known address: 264 Mainsail, Port Lucie, FL 33452.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
