Lions Roar : January 2010
62 SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2010 local curiosity shop and dunking Archway chocolate chip cook- ies in milk. we were making earrings to be sold at the annual Hyde park Art Fair alongside our “homemade” (Country Time) lemonade, but all the while, says Lizzi, we were “psychoanalyzing” our parents and crushes, and exploring hopes and dreams. Life has come to teach me that we shared a rare intimacy and an equally rare appreciation for each other. “we were completely present,” Lizzi says. “There was a connectedness. That feeling is what people spend their whole lives trying to achieve through meditation.” Lizzi: The rabbi “The group went in five different directions,” observes Lizzi, now in her last year of rabbinical school in L.A., where she faces the range of challenges—spiritual as well as superficial— characteristic of our generation. Lizzi paints a picture of her life when she describes forging through religious texts while accompanying her sister to try on clothes on Melrose Avenue. “Funky, she always had unique ideas and was compassion- ate,” is how Jill describes Lizzi, whose opinion she has always sought out. Elizabeth, on the other hand, notes Lizzi’s intel- lectual curiosity, wondering if embracing a spiritual path was, in part, a reaction against her lawyer and doctor parents. The first time i encountered Lizzi and her big, almost car- toonish, inquisitive green eyes, we were in a sandbox. A new Year’s Eve baby, Lizzi rang in 1981, the year all of us were born. By nursery school, the story goes, she was reading the New York Times. After graduating from Stanford, she lived in ojai, California (which makes me think of ouija and the spirits the five of us once conjured). She learned reiki and massage ther- apy. while vacationing in Thailand with her family in 2004, the tsunami struck before their eyes. Though her decision to become a rabbi came as a surprise to many of us, we agree Lizzi was always a nonconformist. i think back to Lizzi going through her own Age of Aquarius in fourth Lily Lizzi Jill Elizabeth Vanessa “what marked our friend- ship if not a sense of being loved unconditionally by one another,” Lizzi says, “and together exploring a way to navigate the world?” Shambhala Sun Audio: Lily Koppel talks about The Five of Us at www.shambhalasun.com Lizzi
