Bio: I am a licensed ordained interfaith minister since February of 1996, a graduate of two interfaith seminaries and an author of two pioneering books, Joining Hands and Hearts, Interfaith, Intercultural Wedding Celebrations and Bless This Child, A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Baby Blessing Ceremonies. My work has been featured on (but not limited to) CNN, MNSBC, ABC, NPR, TLC and in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, Pregnancy Magazine, Time Out NY and other media venues. Publishers Weekly dubbed my work "cutting edge". I have performed well over 2000 personalized ceremonies internationally. The results of which are often extraordinary. I provide spiritual, interfaith, relationship, wellness, grief and life counseling for people of all backgrounds and beliefs - and have helped many people navigate sensitive and challenging situations. An empath and an intuitive, I also offer energy healing for those who wish it. An orator and storyteller, I have conducted seminars, classes and workshops on various subjects, including The Art of Ceremony and Ritual, Weddings, Baby Blessings, Discovering Our Spiritual Next Steps, Finding Joy and Inner Peace, Let Your Soul Lead and The Art of Listening Within. I teach mediation and energy healing, and employ drawing and automatic writing as a path for authentic living, healing and transformation. An artist, my paintings have been exhibited at Union Theological Seminary, New York Open Center, Pace University and other spiritual and cultural centers.

My Story
A high powered marketing executive turned entrepreneur was not looking for God or religion. In a stressful, chaotic and competitive environment she simply wanted an everyday access to peace.

That woman was me.

I began that search over three decades ago by studying the universal and mystical teachings of the world’s religions. Over time my inner life became luminous. People noticed and asked me to share what I was doing. I began teaching meditation and energy healing, and pursued my loved of painting. I began exhibiting my paintings in galleries, cultural centers and universities.

Through a combination of mystical experiences and serendipitous events, I was led to The New Seminary and later to The All Faiths Seminary International. At the time, I felt no desire to become an ordained interfaith minister. The New Seminary’s president, Rabbi Gelberman’s message to me: "It will be revealed to you."

It took a leap of faith. I was following the signs.

At my ordination ceremony in February of 1996 at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, the holy books of the world’s traditions were ceremoniously carried down the aisle and placed upon the altar. My paintings of four archangels flanked the altar. Two days after my ordination, I performed my first interfaith, intercultural wedding. People in attendance commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen!

Looking back, it seems as if invisible hands set it all in motion. It all began through simple word of mouth. Then I was interviewed for a feature article in a magazine. This led to other articles, television, radio, podcasts and web features. What followed was my book, Joining Hands and Hearts, Interfaith, Intercultural Wedding Celebrations, A Practical Guide for Couples (Simon & Schuster). Later I wrote Bless This Child, A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Baby Blessing Ceremonies. Both books are pioneering - changing the way ceremony and ritual are done.

Employing my decades of experience with meditation and energy healing, I was able to completely cure myself of Crohn’s disease and cancer! I have helped many others do the same for themselves. Healing begins by listening. When we listen to our deepest selves, attuned to our souls, we tap into our inner knowing. From there comes clarity as to the best health modalities and course of action that work for us. Spiritual, mental, emotional blocks are released. Listening to the Source All Being - that which is within us yet greater than us - brings us back to wellness, to who we really are. In its purest essence, this energy is love.

People often ask me why I chose this work. It always puts a smile on my face. For the truth is, this work has chosen me - and I am eternally grateful.

Bio: Rev. Stephanie is the Founding Minister of the Tree of Life Interfaith Temple, a non-denominational church she founded in 2009. She is the director of the Tree of Life School for Sacred Living and creator of the Tree of Life Interfaith Seminary, a two-year program, focused on the integration of prayer, meditation and spiritual practices from the world’s major faith traditions. The twenty–six module core curriculum, The Path of Crow: Journey to Your Inner Treasure, invites seminarians on the ultimate treasure hunt to discover their divine purpose and to offer their unique gifts in service to the greater good. In addition, she created an optional third year, the Spiritual Mentoring Certificate Program, which trained seminarians, as well as health care professionals, in cultivating pastoral mentoring skills.

Rev. Stephanie earned the Doctor of Ministry degree in 2017 from Andover Newton Theological School (now Andover Newton Seminary at Yale) where she graduated with honors and was inducted into the Jonathan Edwards Society. Her dissertation, “The Call of the Mourning Dove: How Sacred Sound Awakens Mystical Unity,” was awarded the Frederick Buechner Prize for Excellence in Writing. She graduated from the New Seminary in New York City in 2005 and was ordained an interfaith minister. In the 1980s and 90s, Rev. Dr. Rutt worked as a mental health counselor and taught for many years on the college level in the behavioral sciences including eight years with the University of New Hampshire. During that time period, she also earned certifications in various yoga and meditation disciplines and in the late 90s opened the Tree of Life Yoga Studio which later became the Tree of Life School for Sacred Living.

Rev. Stephanie is the author of five books:
  • Lovers in the Wilderness: Awaken Mystical Unity and Create a Joyful Life with Mantra Prayer, Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2021. (updated and renamed edition of Doorway to the Sacred: Transform Your Life with Mantra Prayer first published by Tree of Life Publishing, 2014)
  • An Ordinary Life Transformed: Lessons for Everyone from the Bhagavad Gita, Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2021. (first published by Hobblebush Books, 2006)
  • The Call of the Mourning Dove: How Sacred Sound Awakens Mystical Unity, Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2019.
  • Living the Prayer of Jesus: A Study of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic, Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2019. (first published by Tree of Life Publishing, 2012)
  • The Interfaith Worship Manual: The Resource for Creating Interfaith Worship Services, Tree of Life Publishing, 2012.

Finally, in 2017, her essay, “The Shaykh and the Preacher,” was chosen for inclusion in the anthology, One Nation, Indivisible: Seeking Liberty and Justice from the Pulpit to the Streets, edited by Celene Ibrahim.

In addition to posting on her blog, “Become a Force for Good: Rev. Stephanie’s blog,”, and publishing Guest Commentaries in local newsprint, she has created numerous sacred studies programs for her community through the Tree of Life School for Sacred Living. Just a sampling of these includes: Rise Up! The Bhagavad Gita: Job Description for a Spiritual Warrior; Living Our Purpose: The Heart of Spiritual Practice; A Study of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic; A Study of the 23rd Psalm in Hebrew; The Sanskrit Mantra Course; Mantra Prayer: Doorway to the Sacred; The Interior Castle of Saint Teresa; and, the Lovers in the Wilderness series including studies of Walter Russell, the Blessed Mother Mary and Dr. George Washington Carver.

Rev. Stephanie has served her local interfaith council through visioning such programs as the “To Hear How Others Pray” series which invited lay people and faith leaders of different faiths to share personal experiences of prayer as a way of highlighting all peoples’ common humanity while respecting religious difference. In 2016 and 2017, she lead local faith communities in right action through the “Under One Sky Interfaith Peace Walk” which offered a visual demonstration of how people from across faith traditions could stand and walk together in unity and solidarity while, simultaneously, forging a common goal for peace.

Rev. Stephanie has served on the Board of Directors of World AWAKE! and presented at their 2016 and 2017 national conferences. She is also a member of Spiritual Directors International and The Sacred Dance Guild. Finally, in 2018 she appeared on the TEDx stage presenting, "Discovering Unity Within Diversity."

Rev. Kelsi Deanne Watters
Clergy Fellow
Bio: I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and received my theological education in Minnesota, before taking a leap of faith to move to Charlotte, North Carolina to pursue two chaplain residencies. I was ordained as an Interfaith/Interspiritual Minister by the Order of Universal Interfaith (OUnI) on August 22, 2021. I have practiced chaplaincy in a variety of healthcare settings which has allowed me the opportunity to meet many people of diverse cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. As a chaplain, I frequently utilize integrative modalities such as basic healing touch, therapeutic music through the reverie harp, singing, and guided meditation. Another unique gift in my ministry is writing and sharing interfaith prayers, which brings me great joy. My spiritual care practice is guided by a dedication to compassionate care that is sensitive to the holistic needs of each individual; a deep passion for standing with those who are experiencing marginalization; and a desire to touch the lives of the people I encounter. To touch one hurting soul makes all the difference in the world.

I experience a deep faith in God, a unique integration of elements of Catholicism, liberation theologies, and deep spirituality, which all influenced my own theological voice. I am eager for the ways my theology will continue to expand. My lived experience as a person without physical sight has allowed me to develop unique skills of deeply listening with the ear of my spirit, authentic inclusive communion, cultivating relationships, forming spiritual connections, navigating the world by touch, and utilizing a keen sense of intuition by listening to the inner voice and/or movement of the spirit. I am, with excitement, a little trepidation, and hope, opening my heart in anticipation of the next steps on my journey. I seek to serve in the spirit of love, compassion, humility, and gratitude, and to sit at the table with everyone. May my life, my actions, and the meditations on my heart be guided by Love.
