    JCOC Intern

    Kitchie Ranillo Bakken was born and raised in Oakland, CA. She is a child of immigrants from the Philippines and grew up in a bi-cultrual home. She moved to Chicago, IL for college. Surprisingly, the skyline and the lake captivated her Californian heart enough to withstand the harsh winters, and she has been here since. She studied at North Park University and received her bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. After college, she began working in the non-profit world as an administrative coordinator and event manager. She has planned and executed countless events and enjoyed doing so. Her passion is to always create a space where people feel loved, cherished, and seen. Ultimately, this passion is what brought her into her work of spiritual direction. She desires to walk with people so that they can experience how much the Divine loves and cherishes their full authentic selves. She is especially passionate about the intersection of spirituality and culture.
    Kitchie is a life-long partner to Tommy Bakken and is a dog mama to a mini schnauzer named Todd. She describes herself as a serial hobbyist because ultimately her favorite hobby is trying new hobbies. However, of her many hobbies, her favorites are food-related. Whether it is cooking or going out to eat to new restaurants, there is no greater joy than sharing a meal together. Especially when it is a labor of love. 🙂

New Year Retreat: Reorienting to the Present

These past two years have been brutal. Brutal for all of us. The constant changes. The constant fear for ourselves and our loved ones. And, most of all, so much grief. COVID changed our lives and the world we live in. We will never be able to go back to what was and we can’t keep hoping for a different future. Let’s begin the new year not bound to our past or future. Let’s learn together how we can reorient to our present and be open to what the Spirit has in store for us in 2022.
