About

I am Kathleen O’Hara Farren here facilitating The Edge School experience.  Learning about life and sharing my findings is what happens here.  I am a Wellbeing Facilitator, Creative Coach, Multi-Media Artist, Home Educator & Mother.

Thanks for your interest in The Edge School.  I love this path of evolving connections through wellbeing and creativity.   And it is a network with strands from Permaculture (Social, Child & Youth), 8 Shields Wilderness Education, Steiner Waldorf Education,  Metaphysics, Sound Healing and more – all integrated into my own lifestyle and happily shared with all who are interested.

Always a new perspective

Home Education allows us to freely explore nature and anything that interests us so that is some of what I will share on this The Edge School site.  The Edge School is a way of being, thinking & doing, more than a place or location.

I am excited to be emerging from a time of contemplation while being mother and homemaker to expand the heart space to include all I know so…. if you, like me, are open to creating a new story of how we live in peace on earth then keep in touch – we are, after all, in this together!  Send me an email: kathleen (at) theedgeschool.net

If you would like to be a part of the evolving Edge School, then you might like to meet (online at the moment) at one of our Valuing Vitality Gatherings (every 6 weeks or so) . Valuing Vitality

I appreciate & welcome your contributions with sincere thanks!  Introducing new culture is my joy and that isn’t always valued until it appears, so I really do welcome financial support (if you like what I do) to help get things up & running.

Discovering and creating new culture has been my passion.  Some examples include hosting the 1st Inishowen Summer Gathering – A Celebration of Creativity, Heritage and Environment, facilitating the 1st Cultural Emergence training in Ireland and offering the healing modality Belvaspata.

Here’s a place to contribute your financial support:



2005 – The Inishowen Summer Gathering – Isle of Doagh – hundred visited over the sunny weekend – skills and ideas were shared – song & story by the central fire…. people involved in organising have gone on to be creative in the community – always open to potential and ever hopeful in more people experiencing culture like this!

Brief biog:

Graduate of Communications and trained in Kindergarten Early Years Education (Steiner Waldorf)

Many years ago I initiated The Inishowen Summer Gathering – celebrating Sustainability, Creativity, Heritage and Environment.

More recently I introduced Cultural Emergence to a pioneering group in Ireland, merging  Social Permaculture  and 8 Shields Wilderness Education.  It follows nicely, the weekend I facilitated with Hannah Mole & Marella Fyffe, called “Living Permaculture from the Inside Out”  I am continuing to integrate my learnings and look forward to offering you some more creative media.

Thanks for your interest here.  Best of luck with your evolving edge!
