Transformative Education & Leadership Training
We are in a time where we are being called back to authenticity, to the innate intelligence of our bodies and to community and collaboration in all areas of our lives. Our abilities to feel and to connect are essential for a thriving future.
Transformative learning engages the whole person--the mind, imagination, belief systems, emotional intelligence, the body and relationship for true evolutionary change. The classroom in transformative education is life itself. Opportunities to expand your capacity for growth occur as you make meaning of your lived experience through varied ways of knowing (feeling, seeing, reflecting, imagining) and in relationship to others and the natural world. Transformative learning supports personal power and self expression while nurturing connection and a global perspective. Transformative education evokes the spirit of service and leadership through fostering your unique place of belonging in, and connection to, the wider web of life.
"Lara Catone has single handedly opened a door to a new reality for me and held it ajar. Her work is life altering. Her presence is sincere. Her wisdom is expansive. And, her willingness to share her gifts with an open heart is, of course, what makes her most impactful as a leader in this field."
I have dedicated my life's work to creating radical cultural change through experiential education and mentorship. I hold the vision of a turned on global community and thriving planet.
I provide consulting services for businesses and organizations in leadership development and the creation of engaging, experiential educational content.
I offer mentorship for individuals and transformative education in a variety of group settings with a focus on women's sexual sovereignty, social justice and leadership.
"Lara lives and breathes this work. She shares effortlessly and with full permission to allow whatever arises to be spoken. Nothing is too much, too scary, too this or too that . . . with Lara, I am deeply held and feel absolutely safe to be all of who I am."

"My work with Lara has been one of the greatest gifts I've given to myself. She creates a safe container for me to share the best and worst parts of myself; with her nurturing support I have healed emotional wounds, become more of the woman, mother and writer that I am, and more fully embodied my joy, courage and strength."
"My journey with Lara has been incredibly deep, insightful and most importantly accessible. She has an ability to combine a firm container (no bs) with love and empathy. For me, personally, this is the perfect combo. Our sessions have helped me actually make changes and reshape my approach to both my business and relationship.
I don’t know anyone else who can pull on such a diverse toolbox of knowledge and techniques. Because of this you can come to her with anything and together customize what you need or what you are ready for. Including ‘following your buried creative impulses, working through past trauma and having more juicy intimacy in your partnership.
Lara helps me to not get caught up in the story but to be in the body and source my inner wisdom from that place which, for someone heady like me, is essential!
Honestly I can’t recommend working with her more."
"I am deeply grateful for Lara’s mentoring. I learned about her practice at a time in my life when I was in need of guidance. I was living a ‘duty-driven’ life and any sense of my personal desires laid dormant deep within me. My whole being felt disjointed, disconnected, and neglected. I needed someone to help me to reconnect with my very essence —body, heart, mind and soul. Lara, with her great range of skills — her insightfulness, her thoughtfulness, her planetary awareness, her resources, her intuition, her ability to listen to and reflect back, helping to redirect one’s thoughts and actions — has helped me to live a more balanced and centered life. I am more in sync with my body and the Earth’s seasons and cycles. I am living a more sensual and spiritual life and I am more consciously engaged in the present moment. I have benefitted from this work, as has my family and friendships. And, I look forward to the work I will be doing with Lara in the future."
"Lara’s broad background in various healing modalities, coupled with her effective and compassionate communication skills, helped me immensely in uncovering blocks and connecting with my truer self. Having participated in various men’s workshops lead by men, I found Lara’s approach to be holistic, supportive, and a fine balance of the feminine-masculine. It was a rare opportunity for me to explore the intersections of mind, body, spirit, and heart."
"I found it difficult to imagine how I could feel safe doing the type of work that Lara does. It took me a few years to land in her office. What I found when I finally landed, is a safe space for all of me to arrive exactly as I am.
Since working with Lara, I now understand what it feels like to be more at home in my body."
It is difficult to put into words the depth of healing and growth I have experienced in the past few years working with Lara.
I've gained a new perspective on life, love, spirituality, sexuality, motherhood, passion, longing, fear, grief, rage and so much more….
Lara has put in words things that I have felt my whole life but didn't know how to express. Hearing her demystify the paradigm we have been living in, and anchoring it all in the body, felt like salve to my soul. At times my body responded with deep sighs of long held shame and grief, and at other times with tears for knowing that I'm not broken, I don't need to be fixed, and that I belong.
As my mentor, I appreciate her shared experience. Lara lives and breathes this work. She shares effortlessly and with full permission to allow whatever arises to be spoken. Nothing is too much, too scary, too this or too that . . . with Lara, I am deeply held and feel absolutely safe to be all of who I am.
