Liz Lamoreux is a retreat host, an artist, the author of Inner Excavation: Explore Your Self Through Photography, Poetry, and Mixed Media, and the creator of The Gift of This Moment Home Retreat Kit. She believes that beauty and truth are found when we share our stories through creativity and community, and she facilitates opportunities for women to shine a light on the stories just waiting inside them.
A trained yoga instructor, her experiences of community with other artists has encouraged her to see creativity as a form of yoga and she now honors creating and writing as part of her personal yoga practice. She lives in the Puget Sound Area with her husband, young daughter, and golden retriever. Most days you can find her in her studio surrounded by fabric, vintage lockets, and poetry as her daughter practices twirling beside her, or maybe she is practicing what she teaches and they are both taking a nap.
