Susan Vander Woude

Sue VanderwoudeI’m deeply privileged to offer others what I have received in spiritual direction: a safe and welcoming place where those I accompany are listened to deeply, noticing together the graced “threads” which, on our own, we may be blind to. As self-knowledge increases, a sensitivity to the Spirit’s nudges also increases, enabling a growing cooperation with the Spirit in the unfolding journey of transformation.

I have been practicing spiritual direction for over 20 years (M.Div., Tyndale Seminary, 2000, Spiritual Direction Practicum, 2002), and have been a SoulStream supervisor for 12+ years (Supervisor’s training, Together in Mystery, 2011). I bring my spiritual direction heart to accompanying others in Supervision. It is a more focused process where I am able to offer caring support to the learning spiritual director.

I’m a SoulStream founder along with my husband, Tony. We have three adult children and six grandchildren. I enjoy watercolor painting, reading, walking, nature and retreat time.


In the midst of the COVID-19 reality, SoulStream is discerning the way forward event by event. For some events, that may involve cancelling.  For others, postponing.  And for others, creatively exploring alternate ways of gathering.
We will communicate through the website and to those individually affected via email.
