Tree of Life Interfaith Seminary
We are all called. Some hear and hesitate. Some hear yet turn away unable to imagine the possibility. Sadly, some never hear. And then, there are the few who hear and answer, “Yes!” This program is for you! Here you will be invited to join a select group of Lovers, found across faith traditions, who have entered into the portals of religious experience, the Love, in search of their Beloved, to experience moments of mystical unity with their God. On the way, by engaging in practices from across faith traditions, you will discover for yourself, “Many are the ways we pray to one God” for each portal opens us to the same mystery, deeply personal and intimate yet graciously, beyond all understanding.
What our fellow Seminarians had to say:
- 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 class of 2011
- Seminary was a journey of reconnecting with the Divine by sifting through the layers of resistance and discovering the gem in each experience along the way. I found the treasure itself to be the Sacred Space within my heart, the space which holds the Divine presence and my connection to all beings. I can't think of a better way to be of service than to live from this space. Andrea Carta class of 2012
- I came hoping to grow, to "free what waits within me," (Rainer Maria Rilke) and to surrender to the divine. I leave ready to "Open the window in the center of my chest, and let the spirits fly in and out." (Rumi)" Ilona Kwiecien class of 2013
- I received my calling in April 2012. Over the last two years, I have heard the whisper of the Beloved grow stronger with each class that I shared with my sisters. Watching each of us grow into deep spiritual practices, spreading our wings fearlessly has been a great blessing. Joyous laughter, wrenching tears, faith and trust in one another, deep soul searching, all necessary to uncover our highest true nature and purpose in life. Our greatest blessing during this transformation was the complete unconditional and overwhelming love of our guide and teacher, Reverend Stephanie Rutt. Miigwetch. Thank you for this incredible life changing journey, Ecstatic Cry, Hugs and Kisses. Peggy Marcellino class of 2014
