About the guest
A native of San Francisco, Eli grew up in Ohio, and moved to Seattle in 1996. He attended Ohio State University and City College of San Francisco, but his most valuable coursework was the typing class he took in junior high. After accumulating five years of administrative office experience in a diverse range of industries from nonprofit community outreach to electronics sales, Eli came to The Hope as a temporary employee in 1998.
He has since worked to support The Hope's research staff, as well as the Education, Administration, Finance, Human Resources, Development, and Marketing departments, before settling in to his current role as assistant to The Hope's Founder, Dr. Lester R. Sauvage. As Dr. Sauvage's assistant, Eli has continued to be involved in many aspects of The Hope's operations, and has worked on a variety of projects, including managing a five-year research study in collaboration with HealthNet, and editing Dr. Sauvage's research papers and book manuscripts.
Eli is an avid technology enthusiast, and when he's not at work he enjoys backpacking and camping in the Scottish Highlands, and traveling throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Europe.
About the book
One of the worldʹs most renowned heart
surgeons and a prolific author, Dr. Lester R. Sauvage was known among his staff as
“Saint Sauvage” for his extraordinary attention to the spiritual needs of his patients.
He said, “From the beginning, my orientation toward medicine was founded on a firm
Retired from his work as a pioneering physician who performed thousands of lifesaving
operations, and founder of a major medical research facility, he has written his
fourth book, Open Your Heart to the Magic of Love: A Healer’s Testament to Health, Happiness
The book is a spiritual action guide to achieving happiness by offering love, compassion,
forgiveness and generosity to other people, and by serving God by serving humanity.
Sauvage lays out detailed chapters such as:
The Gift of Sharing
Pain and Compassion
Averting Severe Mental Stress
Nurturing Your Body—Your Mind—Your Soul
Having witnessed the damage that stress, poor diet and the pursuit of material prosperity
have inflicted upon the human heart, the author has intimate knowledge of literal
and spiritual heart disease. He asks readers to reflect on these questions:
What difference have you made in the world?
Is helping other people a priority in my life?
Do I believe in Jesus? in heaven? in hell?
How might I change the way I live my life?
How would I relive my life if I were to start over?
Open Your Heart to the Magic of Love is crowded with heart‐warming and sometimes
heart‐breaking stories of the author’s long life as a doctor, husband and father, and stories
of some of his patients. And always, he focuses on the “healthy soul” and religious
belief as elements of healing that are as important as medicine. He says, “Medical science
now recognizes that the body and the spirit interact and that a happy spirit can
help heal the body and assist in keeping it healthy.”
