Wendy Fernstrum


Wendy Fernstrum, Spiritual Director Wendy Fernstrum is a certified spiritual director and a visual artist. “For me, the studio is a sacred, contemplative space, and making art is a form of prayer. Each moment of the day, in fact, is an opportunity to take my spiritual practice from the yoga mat or the meditation cushion to everyday life. In a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, God tells us to make big shadows He can move in, and I’m honored to be a spiritual companion to those who want to make more space for the divine in their lives.”

Wendy’s artistic work is collected and exhibited nationwide. She recently received the 2016 Minnesota Book Artist Award.

A member of Ascension Episcopal Church in Stillwater, Wendy is on the Healing Prayers team and the Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry team. She is also a yoga practitioner and a student of Buddhism. Her daily practice, whether at work or at play, includes unfolding a bit more deeply into a sense of being One with all beings.
