Rev Carrie Christiansen

Carrie Christiansen has A Course of Love Study group on Wednesday mornings in the Awakening Together Sanctuary.

Carrie is a member of Awakening Together, devoted to it’s purpose and values, and serves on the Member Board of Trustees. 
Her committed spiritual practice started in the early 90’s with a Course in Miracles which she was guided to study through a sincere asking for help while in the midst of a dark night of the soul. The combination of the dark night experience and this study brought abundant and intense mystical experience, and a lot of clarity. She has remained a student and also a facilitator a Course in Miracles since that time. Over the ensuing years her studies and practice continued to expand and she has become a licensed Religious Science practitioner and is also ordained as an interfaith minister through One Spirit Interfaith Seminary. She is an affiliate minister with a very active, heart centered, independent Religious Science congregation that she has been a part of since ’03, where she teaches spiritual classes and offers study groups and workshops. She is also deeply involved in prison ministry offering programs and classes including mindfulness, Radical Forgiveness, Compassionate Communication and Oneness Blessing. Her most recent pursuit in her own training is the Awakening Together Ministerial Preparation Program, from which she will be ordained in February of ’16.
Horses, animals and nature in general have been her lifelong passion, and are a totally integral experience with her more “official” spiritual pursuits. Learning from the horses themselves and facilitating people’s experiential understanding of the Oneness of Life through interaction and communication with them including no discussion of “God” is as much a joy for her as teaching/taking structured spiritual classes, and the way these aspects of her life come together supporting her own evolving awareness is a gift she’s eternally grateful for and loves to share.
