Director of The Practice of Living and Dying, Lost Borders International, and Lost Borders Press.

Meredith and her husband, Steven Foster, co-founded Rites of Passage Inc. in 1976 and The School of Lost Borders in 1981 – pioneering the methods and dynamics of modern pan-cultural passage rites in the wilderness, and “field eco-therapy”. The essence of their work is captured in articles, chapters, an award-winning documentary film, and books.

Since Steven’s death in 2003, she continues internationally to guide and train others in this work, while also founding, with Dr. Scott Eberle, a new arm of Lost Borders entitled “The Practice of Living and Dying”. In this partnership she hopes to crack open the taboos surrounding death, and to help restore dying to its natural place in the cycles of living.
