IS A BUDDHIST AUTHOR, TEACHER, PERPETUAL STUDENT AND CONTEMPORARY VOICE FOR BUDDHA'S WISDOM
"The Buddhist tradition has the most humorous and radical methods for those longing to do whatever it takes to live a healthy and compassionate life. It offers a path to those no longer interested in self-deception or in hiding from their habitual tendencies. It invites each of us to experience the freedom of exposing our hidden confusion to the light of our intelligence. Exploring this path is my life's passion.”
Elizabeth's vision for how we rise to the challenge of being human and our potential for awakening.
Enjoy this rare glimpse of a writer's creative space. In anticipation of the release of her new book, The Logic of Faith, Elizabeth shares few thoughts about her writing process and invites us into her "office".
"Winter is one of my favorite seasons. It is a time when I retreat into my shrine room to study, contemplate, and write. When the weather permits, I occasionally venture out for brisk walks that invigorate my body and mind. You may not know this about me, but much of my work is done on these walks. Enjoy the tour!" --Elizabeth
