Beth is passionate about the intersection of Buddhist and Christian contemplation practices. She grew up in the Roman Catholic church, turning to evangelical Christianity as a freshman in college. She later joined Cedar Ridge Community Church, in the Washington, DC area, where she experienced spiritual healing under the influence of the church pastor, Brian McLaren. In 2011, Beth dedicated herself to Buddhist meditation and contemplation practices. She spent initial years in affiliation with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington DC (IMCW). After moving to the Durham, NC area in 2014, she established the Morrisville (NC) Meditation Meetup, which continues to meet twice a month. She has completed the Dedicated Practitioners Program (DPP6) at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA and is a member of the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies.
