Seminary Class 2011
My seminary experience has been internally rich and expansive. As always I have appreciated Stephanie's words and consolidation of broad thoughts into practical application! Her questions are the foundational impetus for self witnessing and growth. Without them it would be a course simply reviewing various religions, but the spiritual threads applied to ourselves allow for the self reflection that breaks through our barriers and broadens our personal perspective. This better prepares us for our service to humanity. Jan Grossman
I have known the Reverend Stephanie Rutt for almost thirteen years. Over that period of time I have participated in many spiritual study classes with her, and am now enrolled in the As the Crow Flies Seminary. Stephanie has dedicated herself to the study and practice of a spiritual life. She brings great knowledge, wisdom, love and generosity to her students. Through these studies, one has the opportunity for self exploration, acceptance, and education that cultivates the essential elements for a life of service and deep contentment. We are so blessed to have this precious treasure here in our own backyard. Barbara Burnes Landry
When I learned of the seminary program I was immediately interested in the ability to move closer to living my mission in life through completion of the program and, in large part, Rev Rutt's reputation to assist students of all levels in all facets of safe self exploration to come closer to their own divine nature in a joyful and caring way.
I am in gratitude for the opportunity to meet well known teachers of many faiths who came to offer the students their intimate practices and teaching from their traditions.Personally, the opportunity to become conscious of and release that which kept me from myself and therefore bringing my spritual practice fully into the world is a rich gift. And to do this in the framework of deep holding and joy, ummmmmmmmm...
Serious about yourself and your spiritual growth? Let that be enough of a reason to commit to the program. You will leave touched by what you learned, able to put the integrated self learning in practice in your daily life more than before, and filled with an increased sense of knowing who you are in relation to the universal life force energy.

It has become very clear to me that, if I am to deeply serve in the world, I need to apply earnest effort to looking and holding the most life-shaking challenges of my own life. My seminary experience has offered me the framework to dive in and rejoice in the journey. Thank you. Sarah Brassard
My Seminary Experience started by a touch in the silent space in my heart. The call was unplanned and unintended yet I stepped toward the yearning to deepen this calling pull. I stepped into the unknown and was held by my fellow seminarians and my beloved teacher Rev. Stephanie Rutt. The call unfolds and I am moving in divine unity together with God. I feel deeply grateful and inspired by this humbling path I have embarked on. It continues even now 10 years later. It has brought me to an authentic and abiding life. Pamela Nowell
