She stood as a Green Party candidate in Mt Roskill for the last election.
Since selling her business, Lisa has been steadily building a group who attend a Friday event here in Auckland, called the Forum. In creating and maintaining this Forum for speakers Lisa feels that she is doing a service which assists in the raising of consciousness of the planet. The group has now expanded to Christchurch and will shortly begin in Hawkes Bay.
"If humanity is going to survive as a race, then we clearly need to change our way of living. Underlying our daily activities are our attitudes and beliefs that, as Dr Bruce Lipton confirms, affects our cells and the way we create our collective life. We are not separate, we are one."
Lisa has five principles that she believes would change the way any institution would operate, and if applied everywhere would give us a totally new 'operating manual' for the future."At the moment society operates on survival of the fittest mode. The economy is based on growth and not sustainability, yet, we underestimate the power of nature, and we can feel very helpless in the face of the world's challenges."
Operating from a different belief system while also being active politically are Lisa's answers to the way forward for humanity and in caring for the planet.
