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 5-week 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!

 

PRAYER

Tuesdays, January 31 - March 7; 7:00 p.m. (No Class on February 14)

Unity was founded on prayer – a particular kind of prayer-

Affirmative Prayer - a prayer form that claims your Divine Nature, the Truth of your being and opens you to greater Good.

We invite you to bring this powerful prayer practice into your life or to just have a prayer tune-up.

Eric Butterworth said, when we are stuck in our stuff the way out of it is the way in - into our heart centered divine self.

Join the prayer class. where you will:

  • Explore and practice affirmative prayer

  • Learn about your divine abilities and how to claim them in your prayer practice

  • Build your faith and your acceptance of yourself as a divine being

  • If the Chaplain program calls to you, this is the first step but if you just want to live a better life, this class is an answer.

This class is required to become a Prayer Chaplain and may be taken for credit through Unity Worldwide Ministries.

WHOLENESS 

Tuesdays, April 4 - May 2; 7:00 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 

Tuesdays, October 3 - November 7; 7:00 p.m. (skipping October 31)

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?
