Who We Are
Tania, Russian by background, came to the U.S. as a refugee in 1950. She is an expressive artist, dancer and lover of spiritual truths. She has a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and extensive training in Expressive Arts Therapy. Tania has experienced the Creative Self as a portal into divinity and loves helping others in accessing their artistic and spiritual essence. In 1996, she and her husband, Stream Ohrstrom, co-founded the Circle of Worship and they serve as co-ministers of the Circle for more than 19 years. Tania loves the great teachings of Advaita or non-duality and studies with Byron Katie, Gangaji, Mooji , Jac O'Keeffe and other teachers who shine the clear light of Oneness on Reality. Tania’s fervent living prayer is to fully awaken into the truth of Being. Inshallah!
Who am I without my story? Gratitude. -Byron Katie
Stream is a musician, a poet and an artist. Born and educated in Sweden, he has spent most of his adult life in the US. His love for the arts and his interest in the mystical power of sound led him to the Sufi path and Hazrat Inayat Khan, into whose Sufi Order he was initiated more than 30 years ago. Along the way he has also studied the teachings of Buddhism and learned much from Native American and Earth-centered Spirituality. In recent years, non-duality as taught by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Byron Katie, Pamela Wilson, Mooji and others has been the primary focus of his study and practice.
Stream is a well known leader of drum circles; he teaches flute and drum to young and old, and he leads his own band. Now available: Stream and friend Nancy Fitzgerald's CD: Born on Wind and Fire . Also available - a brand new CD with his former band, the Blue Dragons: "Who's Your Dragon?"
