"Lara wove so many profound and thought provoking ideas into this workshop 

that my head is still spinning. I am so inspired to learn more."

Richard Saunders

AUDIO/VIDEO RESOURCES

Below is a selection of videos from some of those whose work I am influenced and inspired by, several of whom I have studied or trained with in person. While their teachings may differ, they share common themes through their love of the natural world, reverence for the interconnectedness of all life, and trust in the inherent beauty, courage, and resilience of the human spirit. In a culture that does not initiate people into wise adulthood or honor ancestors, we must seek our own teachers to inspire and nourish us and bring us back into the circle of belonging. In them we can hear the echoes of our ancestors voices landing in our hearts, teaching us how to live a sacred life.
