Hi! I’m Lisa, founder of Green Callings and creator of the course Figuring Out What’s Next. I’ve followed different career paths in my life—writer, writing coach, and a corporate life in marketing and communications. I’m also author of The Mother’s Book of Well-Being, a book for new moms. Now a mother of two college-age children, I have more time to consider how I’d like to give back to this breathtaking and sometimes fragile earth.
I’m especially interested in giving back to women, children, and trees. Yes, trees! I live close to the Uinta Mountains (a range in the Rockies) where swaths of our forests are vulnerable to drought and beetles due to climate change. Nature is at the center of my work and I believe essential in the process of life transition. Nothing grounds us more than mother earth!
I’ve spent many years studying and practicing a form of meditation called centering (or contemplative) prayer, which I teach in the course Figuring Out What’s Next. This—along with nature, a practice of reflection, silent retreats, and spiritual direction—has helped me through my own life transitions. As the pandemic wanes, I look forward to offering day-long quiet retreats for women in the Uinta Mountains.
