Tree of Life Interfaith Seminary Program
Rev. Dr. Stephanie Rutt created the 2-year Tree of Life Interfaith Seminary Program, the Call to Mystical Unity. In addition to receiving training in the duties of ministry, learning about the major world religions, engaging in community service, and committing to a daily spiritual practice, participants are invited on an inner journey through the twenty-six module Path of Crow: Journey to Your Inner Treasure curriculum. Here, seekers distill their inner treasure, the vision seeded in their hearts at birth by the Creator which contains the blueprint for how they may best serve to bring forth the greatest good. The Path of Crow contains two parts:
Preparations. Participants explore the treasure's crucible, spiritual practice, from a variety of faith traditions. They examine various forms of meditation and prayer and become familiar with the process of co-creating with the Creator through the interplay of personal will and divine surrender. They receive detailed guidance on how to create a spiritual practice that resonates with their inner knowing, how to deal with obstacles as they arise and, ultimately, how to become alchemists in turning the challenges of practice into the gold of the journey.
Creating Your Vision of Ministry. Here, participants distill the impulses of their inner joy as well as the major lessons and themes of their life experience which are necessary and critical components to the creation of their personal ministry visions. They are offered opportunities for alchemy, to polish the inner treasure, transforming patterns that no longer serve as well as to cultivate focus, courage, and the inspiration to live from an open heart. Finally, as participants clarify their personal visions of ministry and prepare for manifestation, they'll be fully supported in offering them as an expression of beauty, in service.
