Path of The Rose
Born in Aotearoa, New Zealand Lara has spent most of the last decade in the Peruvian Amazon studying with shamanic plant medicines. She co-founded The Garden of Peace, a retreat centre focusing on ayahuasca & master plant dieta and has facilitated for hundreds of individuals during their own processes both in Peru and internationally.
In 2018 through a process of great loss Lara was spontaneously initiated into a deep mythic relationship with the Rose and subsequently, Venus. Over time, this has developed into a professional astrology practice focusing on embodied, ritual relationships with planetary cycles as vehicles for healing, evolution and joy.
Lara is currently based between New Zealand, Bali and the Amazon where she works as a retreat facilitator, mentor, medicine maker, astrologer and writer.
