Lizabeth Kashinsky discovered Joanna Macyʻs work in 2008, but it was not until she was researching environmental grief while earning a MA in ecopsychology at Naropa University in 2010 that she realized to the full extent of how essential Joannaʻs teachings are. Since then, Joanna Macy has become one of her most important teachers. Lizabeth has studied with Joanna in person and is on a mission to share Joannaʻs work with others at every opportunity, including in her work teaching yoga and ecopsychology. Lizabeth is passionate about conservation and has been working to protect Hawaiiʻs rare and endangered plants and animals since 1995.
