UPDATE: December 5, 2016
Milner & Suzanne Champlain
Co-Directors for Flowering Heart Center
Flowering Heart Family!
It’s time for an update on the status of
our Temple Building Project.
fundraising efforts have been very
revealing, and your generous donations
are gratefully appreciated!
We created a column on the spreadsheet
to show us where the donations came from
geographically. It reveals that the vast
majority of donations came from our
online community, including 23 states
and 5 international countries! Seeing
this, we realize that at this time there
is not much of a calling for a new
physical location other than the center
we already have in our home. The house
is large and, when necessary, our main
meeting room can accommodate groups of 50
to more than 100
It's as if we have had our own
election process going on this year
After much prayer and Divine guidance we
have decided to increase our focus on
the virtual community and our online
programs, while still continuing to
offer live programs here at our center.
Instead of a new brick and mortar
building, we will work to expand the
virtual temple, so that all can join in
and connect with the Flowering Heart
Blessing and continue to grow together.
This will include allocating funds to
increase our technical infrastructure
and the capacity to reach even more
souls interested in unconditional love
and the Flowering of the heart,
something that we feel very passionate
about and that is so needed at this time
in human evolution.
We have been deeply touched by all of
your support, kind words and
appreciation for the continued work we
Love, Light and Blessings,
Suzanne and Michael
WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT
TO HELP US BUILD THE VIRTUAL TEMPLE
& TO CONTINUE OUR WORK
WITH THE ONLINE & LOCAL COMMUNITY!
To Donate Click
Over the past 10 years we have put our
hearts and souls into this ministry.
We have worked countless hours, held
literally hundreds of meetings,
teleconferences, webcasts, etc., ...mostly
NOW we need your help!
If you have benefited and grown in any
way from our ministry, NOW is the time
to give back. Please, help us continue
this ministry and fulfill our vision.
We want to be able to continue our work
and become an even
greater blessing to our local community
and to the large
global community we reach through our
online webcasts and courses in addition
to local events
at Flowering Heart Center.
"Flowering Heart" is
the DBA of our 35 year-old 501(c)3
tax-exempt non-profit organization. Our
ultimate purpose is to assist the global
shift in human consciousness which is
already taking place, by awakening one
heart at a time. When enough of us
experience our hearts flowering with
compassion and unconditional love, we
will finally let go of a world rooted
in separation, competition, conflict
and violence and usher in a new
civilization built on the foundation of
unity, cooperation, harmony and peace.
TEMPLE PROJECT: Our main goal now is to acquire a new
location for Flowering Heart Center
outside of the house where our family
lives and where we have been meeting for
the last 8 years. During this time
we have hosted hundreds of meetings and
welcomed literally thousands of people
into our home for diverse interfaith
courses, meditations, seminars, etc.,
and conducted weekly global webcasts
from our small in-home studio..
WHY a new location? It is time to relocate to a more
public venue, so that we can be open to serve
the community 7 days a week hosting
diverse activities which contribute to
integrated spiritual growth and
wholeness. The center will welcome
teachers, healers, therapists, yoga and
qigong classes, meditation groups, faith
communities, worship services, nutrition
and health classes, Tai Chi and other
offerings representing many traditions
and modalities. These individuals and
groups will pay for the use of the
center, have their own key and carry on
their activities throughout the week.
INCLUSIVE & INTERFAITH: This will be a truly inclusive
community spiritual center welcoming all
people and all paths. It will
make a great contribution to the Tampa
Bay area and, through our internet
webcasts, to the entire world.
The new building could be donated,
purchased or leased. It will need to
have a large meeting hall (for public
presentations, community gatherings,
visiting teachers, meditation groups and
inter-faith celebrations), adequate
bathrooms, a kitchen (where we can
prepare yummy food) and several
classrooms (for smaller groups and
processes, as well as individual
practitioners, healers and therapists).
INDEPENDENT: Flowering Heart is not tied to the
support or hierarchical agenda of any
single teacher, organization, religion,
faith tradition or belief system, so
it can remain open to teachers,
teachings and practices from all
disciplines and paths that contribute to
holistic and balanced spiritual growth.
GLOBAL ONLINE VIRTUAL COMMUNITY: For those who do not live near us, we
will continue to offer weekly LIVE online meetings,
and expand to offer many new online courses and events. The center will
be set up so that we can webcast many of
our events worldwide. Join a thriving
virtual community uniting kindred
spirits around the world.
Help us find the right place. If
you know of or discover a property that
could serve our needs, please let us

BUILDING PROJECT: We have
already received more than $18,000 in
cash donations. Also, we recently
received a donation of about $20,000 in
equipment to furnish the main auditorium
(including a portable stage, a lectern,
150 chairs (in addition to the 50 we
already have for a total of 200), an
awesome public address system with a 24
channel mixer, several amps, 6 large
speakers, wireless microphones, a video
projector with a 12 foot screen, and
much more. Now, we just need the right
Our business plan is for us to have
funds to lease a building with 6 months
of operational expenses covered in
advance. To make this possible we
estimate that we need to raise $75,000. As soon as that
happens we will launch the new center!
Whatever seed you sow, you will reap,
many times over.
Whenever you give
us a donation, we take a strong intent
pray for you, and we will do this
whenever you give in the future.
We pray for the Divine to bless you with
deeper Awakening and
the Flowering of your Heart. We boldly
claim that the seed you
have sown will be multiplied back to you
many times over, with
floods of grace and miracles in every
area of your life, and
that your heart's desires will be
fulfilled in abundance.
