Hey There

Hello Wonderful Humanoids, I cannot wait to meet you all and begin building our shared space together in Nepal.

My name is Liza, and currently, I am taking a semester off from Williams College, not least of all for the purpose of running around in mountains much larger and more majestic than the hills of Berkshire County, MA. In terms of what there is to know about me, I care a lot about lemurs, rock climbing, and gender theory, and this excerpt from How To Love by Thich Nhat Hanh is something I think about daily:

“Loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity are described as unlimited states of mind because they continue to grow and they cannot be measured. The more you practice, the more you see your love growing and growing until there is no limit. The more you practice compassion, the more it grows. The more you cultivate joy, the more joy you will feel and be able to share. The more you understand, the more you love; the more you love, the more you understand. They are two sides of one reality. The mind of love and the mind of understanding are the same.”

Cheers to the adventures, physical and emotional, that we will all have throughout the next three months!
