About Me


Short answer: Love.


I appreciate the deep silence in the midst of a full, rich world. I also can walk with many kinds of people and feel at ease. I see our common basic goodness beyond good and bad.


"Movement is what creates life.
Stillness is what creates love.
To be still and stillmoving
....that is everything!"


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have never surfed with this website, but have made lifelong friends while traveling.


I meditate, study, and practice Buddhism. I came to it through the arts and psychology. I am getting started as a Jungian Dream Coach, so if you want a free consultation, I’m testing out the waters for going professional.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies for relaxing, music for dancing to, and books for study.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just finished the first edition of Equanimity Magazine. You’re invited to participate in the next edition!

Teach, Learn, Share

Improvising based on what we have in common usually works the best, but have you been to Black Sands Beach?! I am on Facebook as Lara Summerville.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Genuine presence. Play, easygoing, calm, juggling poorly, appreciation of wisdom and tacos.
