Author Biography

SALLY STONE is an author, mind-body-spirit coach, photographer, near-death experiencer, and mystic. She developed “golden words” from her angelic experience on "the other side" to describe positive words we activate in our lives using focused intention, spiritual support, and hypnosis. Certified as a hypnotist and health coach, Sally helps her clients attain health, happiness, and life purpose goals using customized programs that incorporate golden words, hypnosis, health coaching, family constellations, and meditation techniques. Each year, she accepts a limited number of book coaching clients.

In addition to writing body, mind, spirit books for spiritual seekers of peace, health, and well-being, Sally writes children's books. Her first book, "I Am a Butterfly: A Story About Big, Beautiful Changes," is being released in fall of 2017. Tierra Curry, Senior Scientist for the Center for Biological Diversity said, "This lovely children’s book captures the science and splendor of the monarch’s miraculous adventure from egg to butterfly. The author’s own dazzling photographs guide the reader on the fascinating journey of metamorphosis and serve as a metaphor for the beauty to be found on the other side of surprising life changes."

After witnessing the energy of nature during her near-death experience, Sally took up nature photography to connect with the flow of spirit. Her photography has won several awards, including Audubon’s Top 100 and a Chicago Botanic Garden Special Mention.

Sally earned her masters and doctorate in Education from National-Louis University.
