Throughout her life and career, Elizabeth Jameson has been committed to nurturing spiritual growth, fostering community, and saying ‘yes’ to love by putting Christ and Christ’s love at the center.
Elizabeth served as the Curate and then Associate Rector at the Church of the Holy Comforter in Kenilworth, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Seabury-Western Theological Seminary now Bexley-Seabury, and ultimately as the Rector of St. Simon’s Episcopal Church in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Elizabeth has a Master of Divinity from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary and is a graduate of Harvard University. In 2016-2018, Elizabeth participated in the Living School through the Center for Action and Contemplation, led by the faculty Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault and James Finley. She experienced her first Vision Quest in 2018 in the silence of the southern Colorado wilderness and to which she returns.
Early in 2018 began a season of profound loss and suffering. Residual complications from a traumatic brain injury led to her resignation from active ministry and learning to live with a disability. Then followed the tragic death of her beloved 18-year-old child, Bee, by suicide in 2021.
In the depths of her worst nightmare came the powerful certainty of Love’s ability to sustain. Elizabeth is an intuitive healer and energy worker. Engagement with nature, wisdom teachers, mystics, a commitment to spiritual practice and community are the grounding for her life and ministry.
Today, Elizabeth lives in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado with her beloved husband, Jim and precious black lab, Bailey. She is grateful for her son and stepson, a large extended family, and dear friends spread throughout the country. She loves hiking in the mountains, traveling in their travel trailer and spending time with friends and family.

Snapshot in time:
Have you ever noticed that each time you tell your story, it is slightly different? Even if many elements remain the same, what we see or emphasize or even leave out shifts and changes along with our own growth and evolution. And thank goodness! Can you imagine if we always saw the world as we did in our teens? Below is the way I shared my story back in March of 2019, as I was leaving my post as Rector of St Simon’s to go on full time disability. Much has moved and shifted in me since then even as so much remains the same.
