"One of the most intensely beautiful and powerful events I have ever experienced.
Lara has a true gift for bringing people together in peace, love and unity."
Originally from the UK, I moved to the Pacific NorthWest in 2012. I have been supporting the journey of healing and transformation with individuals, couples, communities, and groups for over two decades. My work is trauma-informed, somatic-focused, earth-honoring, and draws from a range of modalities. I have a particular interest in raising awareness of the complexities of being raised in a traumatized and traumatizing culture.
I am also the founder of Shanti Sanctuary, an equine rescue and sanctuary that cares for a small herd of equines, mostly adopted through the BLM burro and mustang removal program, all of whom, in addition to being taken from their wild herds and homelands, suffered varying forms of abuse and neglect. Read more about Shanti Sanctuary here, and about the ongoing brutality and injustice of the BLM round-up program here.
“Those who undertake the full journey into their grief come back carrying medicine for the world.”
