About Liz & Skye Pearl

Liz Lewinson

Liz Lewinson is a non-profit executive, award-winning author, speaker, teacher, feminist, and an ordained Buddhist monk. As the Chief Executive Officer of The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism, she is a leading figure in promoting mindfulness, meditation practices, and the active betterment of society.

The author of three insightful books, Women, Meditation, and Power, American Buddhist Rebel: The Story of Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz, and The Power of the Loving Man, Liz focuses on promoting mindfulness and creating impactful global communications through books, audiobooks, film, and other media.

Liz has enjoyed a unique career journey that spans many fields. She has worked in freelance journalism, Hollywood public relations, and in senior positions at several TV studios. Liz also gained expertise in computer science, managing complex, multi-million dollar I.T. projects for top Wall Street firms for over two decades.  In the mid-90s, she served as a contributing editor of PC AI Magazine, a pioneering publication for the use of artificial intelligence in personal computers.  She served as a communications manager for an ombudsperson office in New Zealand, advocating for consumers.

Liz was a student of Dr. Frederick Lenz (Rama) for a number of years, taking occasional breaks for assimilation and contemplation. Beginning in 2003, she freelanced occasionally for the Lenz Foundation, and In late 2017, she became a Board member. In this role, Liz helps to lead the Foundation’s work of growing and developing  American Buddhism through grant-giving inspired by the authentic wisdom traditions of the East while adopting new forms, approaches, and applications uniquely suited to contemporary American society and culture.

In 2023, Liz embarked on a transformative journey, spending four weeks in the monasteries and towns of Nepal, primarily Kathmandu and Lumbini. This immersive experience in a deeply Buddhist country not only deepened her understanding of Buddhism but also shifted her views, experiences, and perceptions.  Her favorite Buddhist book is Padmasambhava Comes to Tibet by Yeshe Tsogyal.  Padmasambhava was one of the founders of Tibetan Buddhism.

Liz resides in Southern California, where she enjoys whale watching, beachside walks with her dogs, yoga, and daily meditation practice. She teaches meditation classes to local groups, with her primary topic being “Women Leaders in Buddhism.”
