He has also worked as an artist and designer, spent ten years as program director at Lost Valley Educational Center, co-produced the magazine, Talking Leaves: a Journal of our Evolving Ecological Culture, and, along with his partner, Luna Marcus, created Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss, an organic, vegan ice cream available widely throughout North America, Europe, and Australia.

Solsara is the practice of opening. As we open, to ourselves and to each other, we begin to perceive and release the protective habits, attachments, and limiting beliefs that have kept us stuck, separate, lonely, and suffering. We learn to listen to the subtle voices of our bodies and hearts, allowing them to inform our thinking and actions. We become present. We rediscover our freedom. We naturally and open-heartedly interact with other people and the world in a way that cultivates deep, intimate connection, trust, empathy, understanding, and love.
