Elizabeth Hess Stamper
Rev. Elizabeth Hess Stamper, MS, LMHC, is a writer, meditation teacher, and licensed psychotherapist.
Since 1973, Elizabeth has been on a conscious spiritual path and passionate about exploring consciousness, meaning, the relief of suffering and the embodiment of joy. This path has taken her through years of deep meditation practice, hatha yoga, the study of religion and mysticism. A degree in Education was followed by training in breathwork/rebirthing, inner child work, and NLP, and in 1994 earned a Master’s degree in counseling from NOVA Southeastern University. She then worked in a community mental health agency and a center specializing in recovery from addiction and codependency, and later cofounded a holistic healing center. She started Reiki training and the deep study of energy-healing in 1996 which affirmed and opened up even more the transformative power of working with all levels of a person – the spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional, physical and environmental aspects of our experience.
Elizabeth has published several books and CD’s of guided meditations. Check out the latest book.
Each day for more than a month, Elizabeth wrote letters to someone she’d never met, and wasn’t even sure existed. The Butterfly Book tells her story of falling in love with this beloved stranger first through the letters and the heart’s privileged entry to the realm of imagination-and then meeting him in “real time,” where together they could explore love and passion face-to-face.

The purpose of my work is to help you see the beauty in you, of you, and of the Whole. As the remnants of the past that block that vision and suppress the simple and natural joy of Being are cleared away, you become free to appreciate and cultivate the gifts that you bring, and free to love and be loved for who you are.
“In highly sensual and flowing poetic prose, Elizabeth's love story will inspire the reader towards deeper, more honest and authentic ways of loving.” - Renelle West, Author of Life with a BuckskinnerEach day for more than a month, Elizabeth wrote letters to someone she'd never met, and wasn't even sure existed.

The innermost heart is where the essence of the person is.
It is where Light comes into the body.
For thousands of years, people of all religions and spiritual traditions have sought serenity and enlightenment through meditation. When the mind settles and the body is calm, peace, clarity and wisdom arise naturally. Through the practice of meditation, we find the answers that we need, the inspiration to create a beautiful life, and a compassion that heals and transforms us. At times, we even touch the sacred core within and discover that the Light of which all mystics speak resides in our own innermost heart.
A regular meditation or mindfulness practice has also been shown to significantly reduce stress, enhance physical, mental and emotional health, and increase an overall sense of well-being. As we become more centered and less reactive, our relationships improve as well. Peace on earth truly does begin with each one of us.
For a moment of peace right now, relax and take a deep, slow breath. Allow your face to soften, shoulders to drop, and as you exhale, feel a letting-go. Take another deep, slow breath and feel the space inside you opening up. Exhale and sense the spaciousness around you. Breathe in this way for as long as you like . . . and become the peace that you are.
