Listening with Open Ears, Open Mind and Open Heart
Spiritual Director and Pastoral Supervisor
I have a passion for fostering human connection through deep listening and for being a listening presence among the fringes.
I have had the privilege of offering pastoral care among those living with homelessness and providing life-giving ministry as a Prison Chaplain. Learn more…
“Listening is the oldest and perhaps the most powerful tool of healing”

“Liz Lee nourishes the spirit of those she partners with. She sometimes disturbs, always stimulates and cares deeply. Liz’s openness to the Spirit in our present, local and universal communities is very contagious. She shares her gifts and insights generously, and has a prodigious work ethic.”

Listening Among the Fringes
Many decades ago, I used to fantasise about entering the Blake Prize for Religious Art. I never saw myself as an accomplished artist, yet I knew that art, in various forms, are a way that I open my soul to the Divine. While my fantasies have diminished, my exploration of creativity and spirituality has intensified. I am now inviting others to open to their creative soul through a non-residential retreat in January at Our Lady of Dolour’s Parish Chatswood.
Back in 2012, I facilitated at workshop for The Grail in response to the 2011-2012 Social Justice Statement “Building Bridges Not Wall: Prisons and the Justice System.” At the time I was a Prison Chaplain at a Remand Centre for 1000 men entering custody. The women from the Grail asked how they could support inmates, the work of the Chaplains and be builders of bridges not walls. And so, inspired by the Prison Journal Project of Sr Joan Chittister in the USA, the Prison Journal Project was born. To date we have given away 2,00 copies and sold another 2,000!
At Centennial Park in Sydney there is a wonderful Labyrinth. On the first Sunday of each month there is a community labyrinth walk facilitated by various people with interest and passion for labyrinths. Today I had the privilege of facilitating the walk.
I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. I pay my respects to the First Nations People and their Elders both past and present. May we journey together.
I am committed to honouring and celebrating diversity. I respect all people regardless of age, race, creed, gender, cultural background or sexual orientation. My liberation is tied up with yours.
