 About Jacquie.


Kerstin (“Shash-tim”) Feist

I have been blessed with abundance of Love. My gift to all I meet is to share it!
From the first day of Kindergarden, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Music was my favorite. I taught students from 54 countrie. Each class they came away uplifted. We knew that Music is Magic!

Youth & Family Ministry

Welcome to the Oakland Center for Spiritual Living, Youth and Family Ministry

We are a safe, joyous, all inclusive, loving and “happy” space. Our mission is to guide and support our youth, on this incredible journey of divine discovery and personal creativity.  They’ll remember what they already know and have fun doing it!

By using simple principles and practices in New Thought, Ancient Wisdom, Science of Mind & Spirit, we facilitate an understanding of the creative process, their roles in this process, and a realization that helps define their purpose, hopes, dreams and their ultimate freedom. They’ll remember, “we are whole, perfect and complete” already!

    When a child enters your life, it is time to relearn the life that you have forgotten. That a child can laugh without reason, that he can jump around for no reason, that he can become an exuberant burst of aliveness – that’s life ~Sadhguru.  “Whee!”
