Program Design Team

Liz is passionate about incorporating contemplative practice and social transformation to sustain and empower the work of change makers. She has focused much of her research as a student at Harvard Divinity School on the intersection of spirituality and social justice, traveling across the county to interview community organizers and activists about spirituality in their work.

Liz holds a BA in Cognitive Science from Carleton College and will graduate from Harvard this May with a Masters of Divinity. During her time in divinity school, she worked for The Conversation Project, supporting religious communities and seminaries in facilitating conversations about end of life wishes. She went on to train in spiritual care as Chaplain Intern at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, where she launched a Tea for the Soul program for staff. A member of the HDS Racial Justice and Healing Initiative, Liz worked with colleagues to develop curriculum for embodied anti-racism training for white people and won the Billings Preaching Prize with a sermon that interrogated whiteness through the lens of religious rituals concerning leprosy. Active in her Jewish community, Liz began to study and practice meditation in 2011 while working as an interfaith community organizer in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
