Lara Lwin Treadaway facilitates healing and transformation within community, weaving experiential group process, ritual and ceremony, ways of council, embodiment practices, and the creative healing arts to cultivate inspiration, resilience, and joy during these turbulent times. She believes that sacred grief work, earth-honoring ritual, and ancestral reconnection are alchemical pathways to restoring deep belonging within ourselves, between each other, and with the other-than-human world.
Lara has been leading workshops, retreats, rituals, and trainings for over two decades. Her events are trauma informed, inclusive, and grounded in deep ecology, radical compassion, and truth-telling. She has led groups of up to 300 people, and internationally throughout the UK and the US. Along with the public Lara has worked with a diversity of groups including youth on probation, activist groups, veterans, native youth, eco-villages, and the homeless community.
A founding member of Transition Town Brixton, Lara studied with Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, co-author of Active Hope, and has been facilitating The Work That Reconnects for more than a decade. In addition she studied with Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Dominic Barter, the founder of Restorative Circles process, and Eugene Gendlin, the founder of Focusing. She is a certified hypnotherapist and works with individuals and couples as well as with groups.
