When asks what she does, Rev. Dr. Stephanie Rutt says, “I discern unity within diversity.”

Stephanie is the Presiding Minister of the Tree of Life Interfaith Temple in Amherst, NH. She is also the director of the Tree of Life School for Sacred Living and the creator of the Tree of Life Interfaith Seminary, a two-year program focused on the integration of prayer, meditation, and spiritual practices from the world’s major faith traditions.

Before ministry, Stephanie worked as a mental health counselor and taught in the behavioral sciences for many years, including eight years with the University of New Hampshire.

She is the author of many spiritually-minded books, and shares her thoughts at Reverend Stephanie’s Blog. She is also the community organizer for the Interfaith Peach Walk for the NH Souhegan Valley Interfaith Council.
