Liz Lee began her meditation practice a decade ago. She enjoys exploring different traditions by attending meditation sessions and retreats around the nation. Meditation has played a key role during her current journey to redefine her story and pursue her passion to protect the planet, after working as a lead regulatory counsel for the federal government for close to ten years. Ms. Lee’s inspiration to share this practice with others is motivated by her desire to provide a sanctuary that encourages awareness and self-discovery. She hopes that through meditation others may find a sense of calmness from within and gain clarity while seeking one’s true self.
Originally from Potomac, Maryland, she received her B.A. from Barnard College and her J.D. and M.B.A. from the University of Maryland. As an Anti-fracking Campaign Coordinator in Maryland representing a local non-profit organization, Ms. Lee now spends her days lobbying local council and state legislators, educating the public on urgent environmental issues, and mobilizing the community on a city and county level.
