The Sacred Buddy Program is a membership site, a community, and an online toolbox for how to do human-ing betterer. 

A departure from the Old Grey Panties paradigm of the self-help game, this program switches out the guru on their pedestal for brilliant, practical, and (almost) fool-proof tools to catalyze development in your relationships and your life.

This program works alongside ANY of your current practices and everything you have ever learnt before. We are not trying to add to your existing shizz. (But we probably will because we do the overdelivering thing. You're welcome).

It also has enough juicy content to be a standalone program.

The membership site is simple and quick to navigate and you can pick and choose what you really want to use in your daily life.

Here's a little bit about what's inside... 



You will be invited to fill out a questionnaire, and based on your answers, we will match you with a buddy. You can check in with us about changing buddies whenever you like, and we will give you very clear call-guidelines, so it's not awkward AF.

Also, although we strongly encourage you to make use of the buddy practice, you don't have to! You will benefit from your membership even if you choose to opt out of this. You will have plenty of solo stuff to do, plus the community conversations, the 2 x monthly calls, and of course the Me and We spaces.

At the beginning of each month, we will unveil new meditations, contemplations, goal-setting strategies, and mind-bogglingy enlightening talks in both video and audio format (whatever floats your boat, man); as well as new call-outlines for you and your buddy.

These monthly themes coalesce to form a comprehensive integrated spirituality.

ME space

These are a menu of straightforward, practical exercises, without any religious trappings, including both heart-centered practices for fostering high states of love and joy; and concentration and insight techniques for developing sharper psychological awareness, more sophisticated emotional regulation, and a deeper connection to yourself and, y'know, all the things.

WE space

This sweet space features an array of highly pragmatic tools that can be applied to improve relationships of any kind — friends, family, romantic partners, your Uber driver... These interpersonal practices are carefully designed relational meditations and partner exercises for increasing skill at attunement, empathy, and compassion. You're going to get super-connecty. (Here's an example)

The LIVE bit 

Each month, there will be two "check in" calls-- live online discussion groups with diverse coaches, therapists and general superstars, experts on the theme of that month. These discussions are designed to complement the buddy format, and teach you more ME and WE tools. You will also have access to the Sacred Buddy playground, an online community chatting area.

The check in calls are a safe venue to speak to expert therapists and coaches. You will also have the option of getting in touch with those experts to book private sessions if intense stuff comes up.

  • Sacred Buddy

    “Just had an inspiring call with lots of laughter with my sacred buddy.......don't know how you guys did the pairing, however this pair of monkeys has amazing potential for fun (and serious self development, if we must 😊)”

  • Sacred Buddy

    “Just had my first buddy call, very cool. First, a very good match! Both disorganised, only barely caught up with program material, one of us hadn't read the guidelines for the call (*blush*) but we quickly agreed a structure and went for it. Very very illuminating experience, a lot of insight came from it. ”

  • Sacred Buddy

    “Buddy call night. What a genius part of this course. I have experienced a day of joy, fear, love and terror. And it's only 2.25 pm. During all of this, I have felt able to watch it all happening, calmly, providing some care for the characters drawn out to experience these things. And give them a lot of love. Alongside this new superpower (that I wish was there all the time), my buddy has provided insight and support borne of true empathy. ”

  • Sacred Buddy

    “A few things I was struggling with during the last months/years are finally dissolving through the maze.
    Feels like I was driving with the handbrake on all this time.
    Thanks for creating all this wonderful content.”

  • Sacred Buddy

    “I feel blissed out!
    Deeply re connected to the real me again ' it feels so good to feel the energy pulsating through me like a wave of pure love.”

  • Sacred Buddy

    “I laughed and cried equally. A tiny part of my mission statement (which evoked the biggest emotion) - I will love deeply and without fear of loss, I will know that I am, and always have been good enough.... ”

Need a breather? Here's a meditation for you where you just concentrate on your breath. It's very nice. Aaaand sigh...

The money bit

We believe that true connection is needed more than ever. In the context of this global pandemic and all of it's ripple effects, we want to stand as a safe space.

Please PLEASE get in touch if you would like a scholarship with us.

Enrollment is open all the time, join whenever.



We recommend staying with us at least 3 months so you can connect properly with your buddy. (But you don't have to).

*this is not a promise and the Sacred Fool Buddy Program does not guarantee any results, musical or otherwise.

We like BIG BUTS and we cannot lie 

Here are some of the questions people frequently ask us.

If we missed any, please email us:

Will this take up a ton of time?

No. Well. It depends what you mean by a ton of time. We are talkin 2 x 1 hour calls a month (that you can show up to live or listen / watch later). Then your calls with your buddy. We try to match you with someone who wants the same level of time commitment as you. Roughly. So you could speak 30 mins a week or 3 hours if you BOTH really wanted. Then there's the audios and videos. You know what they say. Time flies when you are witnessing true genius. Also - HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SPEND FAFFING ABOUT? This program actually helps you with time management too. So THERE YOU HAVE IT. 

"BUT what if I don't like my buddy?"

People swap every now and again, just ask and we will re-match you! 

"BUT what if I can't keep up?"

You just get back on the horse when you are ready, there's no behind. 
As the Sufi poet Rumi said: "Come, come, whoever you are,
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving,
It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow
a thousand times.
Come, come again, come.”

"BUT how is this different from just calling a friend?"

Friends are awesome. But sacred buddies are different— there’s a special format for the calls, and you’ll focus on particular themes to keep your conversations on point. You keep a clean and intentional connection with your buddy, a little bit like having a sponsor in AA, except the relationship is mutual, reciprocal.

BUT what if I change my mind / want to cancel?

If you cancel before the end of the cycle you have paid for, you will still have access until the end of said cycle. 

BUT is there a discount when i sign up for longer?

YES! If you sign up for the annual membership you save many pounds.

But what if I cannot make the office hour calls?

We will be sending out recordings of the calls with permission from all who shared (you can be edited out if you prefer for the recordings). You can also send us your questions to be answered if you can't be there live. 

BUT what if I'm not on Facebook?

SO WHAT?! Have you noticed people wanting to come off social media recently? There's a mass exodus at the moment and we all need a breather. We have our own online community that has nothing to do with the Zuckercrew nobody is going to start showing you adverts for pet food. 

So who is behind these shenanigans? 

We are a collective of luminaries, practitioners and teachers, smushed together by Lisa Larn, founder of Academy of the Sacred Fool.

But this isn't about us. This is about the plethora of ancient and contemporary tools, teachings and other brilliant things that we know work.

We provide a space for connection to happen and because humans like and need that shiz, it invariably does.


For the past 15 years or so I have been concocting different versions of this program - with the intention of bringing together an array of fabulous techniques, tools and teachings that stand up by themselves without needing a guru / teacher to facilitate. 

I'm seeing a growing need for us to leave the patriarchal systems of spirituality at the door and each create our own personal system centered around community and connection. Humans are wired for this. 

The tools and practices are not mine, they are everybody's. I am not claiming to be reinventing the wheel, just providing a container.  

We have thousands of years of wisdom here, tweaked for the crazy times we are living in. You can choose what works and leave the rest. 

I hope they speak to you, 

With heartfelt love
