Liz Scarfe


Liz joined the ANZPOP faculty in 2017 and is the current Executive Director.

She works as an educator, facilitator, consultant, supervisor and psychotherapist with a focus on Collaborative Learning for Cultural Repair.

Liz is a white settler of English and Scottish ancestry, born and living in unceded Wurundjeri land in Naarm/Melbourne. 

Liz began her journey as an educator in the forest campaigns of southwest Western Australia, learning and teaching about nonviolent direct action, conflict transformation, deep ecology, and collaboration.

Moving back to Melbourne, she continued learning and teaching in these areas, studying with deep green activist elders like John Seed and Joanna Macy, and teaching in local nonviolent community groups and with Peace Brigades International.

Prior to discovering Processwork, Liz worked in adult education, community development, human resource management, quality and risk management, non-violent community safety, and local government.

Liz was a facilitating staff member at the Poland Worldwork forum in 2014 and in the Greece Worldwork forum in 2017 and is also a faculty member of the Processwork Institute of India.

Currently Liz is studying a Masters of Culture, Health and Medicine (critical medical anthropology), engrossed in concepts of relationships to place and how they impact on wellbeing and cultural/systemic processes.

In her spare time, Liz enjoys scuba diving, bird watching, and writing about herself in the third-person. She also has a YouTube channel where she shares ideas relevant to cultural repair, as well as the series What to do…?How to say…? answering questions about complex communication situations:
