SoulStream’s Living From The Heart initiative deliberately seeks to foster communities of ordinary people who desire spiritual transformation through a deepening openness and trust in God. Two pillars undergird this initiative.
The first pillar focuses on the core transition from a spirituality based on performance, achievement, or rational dependence to an immediate and intimate relationship with God. We learn receptivity to what God, in love, is doing in our lives.
The second pillar focuses on community. In community we discover the support necessary to live in the face of the contrary values of society. In relationship with others, beautiful and broken as we all are, we often discover the areas of healing needed in our own lives. As we allow the Spirit to shape us into Christ’s likeness, we can discover a freedom from our illusions and compulsions that enables us to offer loving service in our world.
SoulStream therefore seeks to encourage contemplative experiences such as courses, retreats, workshops, and other prayerful means in which people can let go of managing their lives and discover the surprising fruitfulness a loving relationship with God can bring.
Our Partner representative for Living From the Heart is Cherie Tetz
Cherie is incredibly thankful to have discovered a vocation and this community of Soulstream in this second half of life. Her work as spiritual director and partner representative satisfy a deep longing to live open-heartedly with God and with others and offers the graced privilege of facilitating a spaciousness for “the other” to encounter the LOVE who is always present.
Cherie was trained as a spiritual director through Soulstream.
She would say that her life and heart are full finding gift in community, family, writing poetry, dancing and getting to call herself mom to 3 adults, mom-in-law to a couple more and grandma cherbear to 5 amazing little people!
