Cherie Tetz-Christensen

ASD team - CherieI found myself looking for a spiritual director many years ago. Someone who might offer a spacious, compassionate, present and deep listening, where it would be safe for me to be really honest – and even though I was looking for answers, someone who wouldn’t give them to me, someone who would keep pointing me toward LOVE in the midst of the beauty and terror of my real life.

After experiencing this “listening presence,” I knew I wanted to companion others in the same way. I was trained with SoulStream and have been offering spiritual direction since 2007. Spiritual direction invites me to remember who I truly am, who I always was from the beginning, who God says I am, and that I am never alone. Living “awake” requires courage, and I am grateful for the loving, compassionate, accepting and even playful, divine perspective and presence of my spiritual director. It is a deep joy for me to offer this same spacious presence to others.
