LaSara FireFox (now LaSara Firefox Allen) is an American writer, game designer, sex educator, and a neuro-linguistic programming master practitioner and trainer. She is a family-traditions witch and a second-generation ordained priestess. She is founder and CEO of the Ecstatic Presence Project and Global Family Awakening: an educational, peace and humanitarian family adventure club.
Firefox was raised at Greenfield Ranch in Ukiah, California, a 5,600-acre (23 km2) property which was sub-divided into several parcels, some with intentional communities such as Coeden Brith, where Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart founded the Holy Order of Mother Earth (a precursor to the Church of All Worlds), adjacent to Annwfn (run by Gwydion Pendderwen). She is a former president of the Greenfield Ranch Association.
Firefox has written and taught in the fields of spirituality, human sexuality, parenting and bipolar disorder. In addition to Sexy Witch, her writing has been published in numerous anthologies, textbooks, magazines, an encyclopedia, and extensively in online journals. She was also included in the Hot Mommas project on women in leadership. Her essay on bipolar disorder and the entrepreneurial life was second runner up in their national case study competition, and was included in the entrepreneurship textbook Essentials of Small Business Management (6th Edition). She published The Pussy Poems in response to the censure of Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown for saying the word vagina in a debate on the legislation of abortion rights.
Lasara's ideas about female empowerment are evident in her book, "Sexy Witch", which is still a relevant and controversial work nearly a decade later. "Sexy Witch" is in its third printing in the US, and second printing in both Mexico and the Czech Republic. It has been published in four languages, and has been reviewed in more than twelve."
Firefox is a certified master practitioner and trainer of neuro-linguistic programming. She received her master practitioner and NLP trainers' certification from Richard Bandler's Pure NLP/Society of NLP, and trained with the California Institute of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, The Hawkridge Institute, and the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
FireFox is a second-generation witch, and an ordained priestess. She was a clergy member and former president of the board of the Church of All Worlds (1999 and 2000). She has presented workshops for several spiritual events and organizations including the Church of All Worlds, the Tree of Life, PanTheaCon, and both the Starwood Festival and the WinterStar Symposium. She was interviewed in the book Modern Pagans: an Investigation of Contemporary Ritual by John Sulak and V. Vale, and contributed to Taylor Ellwood's anthology Magick on the Edge: Adventures in Experimental Magick. Bewitching Names references Lasara in a discussion on the names of Neo-Pagan witches and their children.
