Welcome! My name is Lara Lwin Treadaway. In 2015 I set out on the road driving fossil fuel free in a school bus that had been converted to run on recycled waste vegetable oil (WVO), bringing my community healing work to groups and communities throughout Oregon and CaliforniaI create and facilitate circles, workshops, trainings, and land-based retreats that nurture and foster connection, creativity, and resilience in our deeply uncertain and rapidly changing world, and offer my work within a gifting paradigm to make it accessible to all incomes. In demonstrating a lifestyle of voluntary simplicitysustainability, and service I hope to inspire others to seek alternative ways of living to one that has been, and is, responsible for so much environmental devastation, social injustice, and spiritual desolation. If you feel inspired by this project please explore this website and consider offering your support.

UPDATE:

This project is currently on hold pending major engine repairs and an inability to travel

with my work due to the COVID19 pandemic. Thank you for your interest!
