Social Artist | Educator | Scholar | Midwife of Eros

Hi I'm Lara. I am a science-based mystic, a life-long dancer, a ravenous reader, a resistant writer and a professional évocateur of erotic genius. I am roused out of bed each morning with a dream of culture that fosters justice, equality, dignity, beauty, collaborative power, epic love and a thriving earth.

My favorite phrase in the English language is holy communion. I love saying, writing and, most especially, swooning with the feeling that is evoked when these words slither across the tongue of my mind. Perhaps this is some kind of irreverent salute to my catholic lineage or perhaps it is the essence of my favorite subject; eros

My entire life has been devoted to apprenticeship with eros and the midwifing of whole, healthy eros into culture. My learning has taken many forms including a ridiculous amount of school and professional training. The most profound teachings, of course, have come through my own personal life initiations.

I offer consulting and coaching in eros infused leadership and transformative education. I am currently writing a book and doctoral dissertation on eros. You can read my writing here. I am also the founder of The Artemis School for Women's Sexual Sovereignty and Elemental Bodya restorative core strengthening system developed for postpartum women. 

I hold the vision of a turned-on global community. I practice the expansive, elusive, chaotic, joyful, messy, exalted, mundane, heart breaking open ecstasy of this every day by grounding into my body wisdom, co-creating community and participating. Let's do this.

What is eros?
