Writing Workshops & Retreats Celebrant Services
Join our writing workshops on life story. You will write to prompts, give and receive supportive feedback.
In a powerful circle you will unfurl your story to hear what is important to you through past events, relationships and emotion. Clarity, balance, and connection will be the gift of the examined life.
Lara O’Brien was born in Dublin and raised in Howth Riding Stables, tending horses on the East Mountain. In 1994 she emigrated to the US and lived on the sister island of Martha’s Vineyard where she committed to writing workshops as a participant and later as a workshop facilitator. In 2014, after the publication of her children’s novel, Lara began teaching workshops and high school classes in writing for self discovery and mapping your life in story.
Lara began Howth Writing Workshop & Retreats in 2017. She connects her love of writing, Ireland and adventure with others who wish to safely fall in love with a new place and reconnect with self through the power of the written word.
In 2020 she qualified as a Celebrant with the Irish Institute Of Celebrants in May 2020 and she conducts small, boutique, ceremonies in Howth and MV.
“Lara, the whole process of your writing workshop has been a gift.”
