Elizabeth Lesser

In 1977, Elizabeth Lesser co-founded the Omega Institute, a holistic center for spirituality and personal growth in Rhinebeck, New York. During the past twenty years, as she has worked with many luminaries in the fields of religion, psychology, mysticism, science, and healing, Ms. Lesser has found that the hunger for a spiritual life can be satisfied by a rich blend of the world's wisdom traditions.

The Seeker's Guide

In The Seeker's Guide (formerly The New American Spirituality) (review or buy), Ms. Elizabeth Lesser synthesizes the lessons she has learned from different spiritual paths, and intertwines them with stories from her life as a seeker, teacher, daughter, wife, and mother. Recounting her own trials and errors and offering meditative exercises as well as references to some of the world's great spiritual teachers, Elizabeth Lesser provides excellent insight into many of the world's spiritual traditions.
