Introducing myself and my journal
Liz Grover travels the world as a spiritual activist, specializing in sharing the voices and events of social movements through writing, film, photography, and Internet media. Her career started at the age of 15 when she helped organize local Maine communities to stand up to corporate polluters. At the age of 20, she began her international work as an English teacher in the Nepalese school system. At the age of 22, she designed Internet media tools for Afghanistan’s first presidential and parliamentary elections after the fall of the Taliban; she did the same for Timor-Leste’s 2007 parliamentary cycle 2 years later.
She also organized powerful actions such as Walk in their Shoes, an art installation of nearly 8,000 pairs of shoes that was displayed on the Washington National Mall to memorialize Iraqis who lost their lives to the war. When working outside of peace activism, Liz spends her time as a photojournalist documenting the Buddhist and Hindu relics of Central and Southeast Asia, and as a student and practitioner of eastern based spiritual philosophy.
Liz offers her gratitude to the great spiritual masters, in Asia and at home in the US with whom she is privileged to study, for showing her the way. She is available as a public speaker and for workshops.
