Lisa Kraus came to Buddhist practice through dance and the arts-rich environment surrounding Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. As a student and later faculty at Naropa University (then Institute) in the '70s and '80s, she explored the commingling of meditation practice and movement, an interest which continues to this day. Her career has included performing and restaging dances for the Trisha Brown Dance Company, choreographing, teaching at universities and arts centers, writing and presenting the work of other artists as Coordinator of the Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series. Traveling extensively, she has been able to study and witness devotional dance practice in Asian cultures.
Along with Jude Robison and Asimina Chremos, Lisa co-founded the Contemplative Dance Practice Group at the Philadelphia Shambhala Center and has led CDP retreats in Bucks County and in Tel Aviv and Galilee, Israel.

In 1990 she relocated to the Netherlands to teach dance technique, composition, and improvisation at the European Dance Development Centerin Arnhem for nearly a decade. Her recent public dialogue with Anouk van Dijk at Philadelphia's Susan Hess Studio rekindled her curiosity about the similarities and differences in U.S. and Dutch culture.
