why temenos?

Temenos  τέμενος  is the ancient Greek word for a sacred protected space or sanctuary. It's often used to describe the safe space created within the therapeutic relationship where the work of healing occurs. At Temenos Creative, Lara provides a safe healing space to explore, discover, create, and grow.
