ADULT EDUCATION

What does Unity teach?  Well, fundamentally, we’re willing to bet that the following three classes represent a great beginning to an answer!  And in this era of creativity and adjustment, we’ve chosen to return to such basics and to invite students to unprecedented depths of spiritual growth, development and unfoldment.

 

Each of the following 6-month (4-month for Prosperity) experiences will invite both new and existing students to put these teachings to the test in everyday life.  Prove that prayer works!  Prove that God is sufficient!  Prove that you can, indeed, have life and have it abundantly!  We’re eager to celebrate with you!

 

Monthly classes will be complimented by mid-month Open Door sessions, ongoing study/discussion groups, homework, reading, spiritual practice and so much more.

 

PRAYER

First Sundays from January 3rd – June 6th; 3:00 p.m.

PRAYER OPEN DOOR (optional)

Third Sundays from January 17th – June 20th; 3:00 p.m.

 

Start by considering the startling suggestion that you’re always praying!  From that initial suggestion, join with others willing to courageously and deeply explore whether these prayers of everyday life are calling for the alluring comforts of limitation or the untethered thrills of possibility!  Are these prayers of everyday life supporting enslavement or emancipation?  Are these prayers of everyday life serving the transient ego or the unfolding soul?

  • What concepts of God are operative in my prayer life?

  • What exactly is this thing called prayer?

  • What is consciousness and how can I use it?  Can it use me?

  • Do prayers go out?  If so, where do they go and to what ends?

  • Do my prayers reach beyond me to impact other life on the planet?

  • Is the point of prayer really to control people, stuff and things?  If not, then what’s left?

  • Can prayer really change my life?

  • And, if I do “it” right, will I always get my way?

WHOLENESS 

First Tuesdays from April 6th – September 7th; 6:00 p.m.

WHOLENESS OPEN DOOR (optional)

Third Sundays from April 20th – September 21st; 6:00 p.m.

Simply stated, we assert the capacity of thought to impact the quality of our physical expression.  And while such thinking has long endured among the spiritually minded among us, it’s now shared and accepted by the scientifically minded among us as well!  Yes, we assert that you can contribute to your physical health and vitality through spiritual practice.  In the end, we seek the profound realization of our own individual and collective spiritual wholeness, trusting that realization to out picture in right and perfect (and often surprising) ways.

  • Am I responsible for my situation?  Am I to blame for my situation?  Is there a difference?

  • What of the processes of aging and dying?

  • What is this physical body and how did it come into being?

  • How can I really work this idea of spirit/mind/body?

  • What do I say to my body?  Would it be acceptable coming from another?

  • And, if I do “it” right, will I always get my way?

 

PROSPERITY 

Second Saturdays from September 11th – December 11th; 9:00 a.m.

PROSPERITY OPEN DOOR (optional)

Fourth Saturdays from September 25th – November 27th (Dec. 18th); 9:00 a.m.

The natural order of things knows how to support its creation, both in whole and in part!  The natural order of things (by whatever name you choose to call it) knows how to meet the needs of body and soul alike.  So, the troubling-yet-empowering question becomes: are you cooperating with the natural order of things or frustrating the natural order of things?  Join with others willing to “get themselves out of the way” of that which longs to prove itself.

  • What do we mean when we say the word God?  And why does it matter?

  • What is prosperity?

  • What are my symbols of prosperity?

  • What might reside behind one of these symbols?  And behind that?  And even behind that?

  • What of this law of giving and receiving?

  • How might my comfort be a part of the problem?

  • What of tithing?  And do I have to tithe money?

  • How might a forgiveness practice support my prosperity work?

  • And, if I do “it” right, will I always get my way?

 

BASICS OF UNITY 

  1. Sundays, January 10th – 24th; 1:00 p.m.

  2. Sundays, October 24th – November 7th; 1:00 p.m.

This class serves as the Membership Class for joining members (required) and the Leadership Class for would-be leaders!  In advance, welcome!  Explore the history of the unity movement, the history of Unity in Lynnwood and some core beliefs and foundational practices.  Most of us enter spiritual community as “renters.”  Whether a joining member or a would-be leader, it is our encouragement and hope that you will join the countless “owners” who continue to make UIL available through their soul-satisfying investments of commitment, prayer, service, presence and finance.
