CD Release Party for Paradiso and Rasamayi, Friday, November 30, 2018, 7:00pm - 9:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. Join Kansas City-based musicians Paradiso and Rasamayi for a healing and spiritually activating concert to celebrate the release of their fourth album, “Agape Evolution: The Movement.” Paradiso plays authentic Aboriginal, modern bamboo and agave, and quartz crystal didgeridoos, including the world's largest crystal didgeridoo. Rasamayi makes music with gem-infused Alchemy crystal singing bowls and her voice. Their music has been described as a transcendent healing orchestra, which is often one of the most powerful sound and energy transmissions audience members have experienced.

The duo’s mission is to transmute individual and collective suffering into infinite consciousness and embodied divine love with the power of sacred sound. Their new album tells the story and transmits the energy of powerful and divine love, staring unflinchingly at the shadow; integrating the soul lesson there, then transmuting it into a higher expression of embodied divinity. 

Paradiso and Rasamayi’s first three albums have topped the World Music genre’s international radio charts and won four Best Album of the Year awards—Best Frequency and Transformation, Best Meditation and Relaxation, and two Best New Age Album of the Year awards. This evening celebrates the release of “Agape Evolution: The Movement”.

Meet Stacey. She’s been walking around with a head full of aspirations for quite some time, and right about now she’s frustrated because while she dreams big, she doesn’t achieve big. Now, I gotta tell you Stacey’s been through some rough times – abuse, depression, rejection – but she’s never given up on her dream. She wants to write a book to share her story with the world. She wants to love again. She wants to travel the world. And she wants to be happy again. But year after year, she’s stuck hoping and praying the same unfulfilled dreams come true. How do I know Stacey so well? I WAS Stacey. You see, I was abused, battered, terrified, depressed, rejected and swimming in a sea of hopelessness. That is, until I found a way to transform my dreams into reality in spite of the nightmare I was living.

So, if you’re just about ready to wave the white flag and quit on your dreams, put down the flag and tap [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-year-new-you-dream-your-life-conference-2018-tickets-50934402168] to join us for the New Year, New You: Dream Your Life Conference 2018.
As an attendee, you’ll get:
✔️  4 life-changing hours to bask in a high-energy, inspirational, fun and action-driven experience
✔️  Open arms into a community filled with like-minded action takers and achievers to give you loving bursts of motivation
 ✔️ A Vision Board filled with all the goals inside your head, leaving you with a visual representation of everything you want out of life so you stay motivated and focused
  ✔️Access to the Smart Goal System so you can define, visualize and clarify your top 3 to 5 personal and professional goals and map out a plan to achieve them.

I Cried And People Loved Me Anyway by Lysa Allman-Baldwin, Book Signing: Thursday, December 6, 2018, 6:30pm - 8:00pm, Heritage Room. Lysa Allman-Baldwin’s almost 25 years of freelance and travel writing has led her on many amazing journeys.  A few years ago, her travels crossed paths with a very personal, inner journey which resulted in her new book, I Cried. And People Loved Me Anyway.

It's the story of how, due to a series of events that happened within a very short period of time, her life completely fell apart and she was literally, ready to check out.  No longer able to maintain the subconscious facades she had built up since childhood, the master of cover ups she had become shattered into bits, and all that was left was her.  And she had no idea who she really was. 

“This beautifully-crafted masterpiece reflects the hope and joy that is possible when we embrace life's challenges. Lysa inspires and motivates anyone seeking to find purpose and meaning in their lives with words that reflect sensitivity and humor. She reminds us that we are surrounded by wise sages who, as directional arrows, offer assistance, love, and support to us on our life journeys if we are willing (and courageous enough) to take the next steps on our own paths. ~ Julie A. Connor, Ed.D., TED Speaker

Join Writer and Motivational Speaker Lysa Allman-Baldwin for this special book signing event and learn how through faith, self-forgiveness and a lot of unconditional love, she moved from the depths of despair to living a truly authentic life filled with passion and purpose.  For more information contact Lysa at editor@amazingescapades.com.  To learn more about the book go to https://amazingescapades.com/buy-my-book

Engaging Mindfulness Meditation Practice Group, Saturday, December 8, 2018, 9:30am - 12:30pm, Classroom C. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. Not “social dialogue” where you may or may not click with the person(s) you speak with, or you might want to have the right thing to say. Meditative dialogue: Between silent meditation and the speed we move and speak of our every day world is a place we can practice meditative dialogue. Meditative dialogue might be explained as a grounded awareness where we can practice using speech, yet what we actually say isn’t important.  What is important is our awareness, what we noticed, what we chose to speak and what we didn’t.  This dialogue has nothing to do with a story we have been telling our friends.  Each moment may be different.  It is about experience.

As the listener, we practice bringing ourselves back to awareness and listening without an agenda.  We are so used to listening to offer advice, reassurance, empathy, teaching, etc…these are all agendas. Listening is one of the greatest gifts we can offer another person, and we cannot fully listen with and agenda. What I have noticed after being in dialogue with others is a comfortable closeness even if I don’t know much about them and after practicing dialogue in a monthly group, I remember again how I want to listen more closely, and how I want to slow down and connect with myself and others while I am speaking.

As with most groups, we practice silent meditation, have a dharma topic, and have time as a group to debrief and ask questions.

If you have any questions feel free to call Lori @ 816-516-2200. Lori is a meditation student, Unity Minister, Nonviolent Communication Trainer, and supports others on their journeys. This group meets monthly on the 2nd Saturday.

All meditation levels welcome. No prior experience necessary. Come experience connection as part of your meditation experience.

Suggested Love Offering $25 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

U-Thrive: Conscious Relationships & the Enneagram, Monday, December 10, 2018, 6:30pm - 9:00pm, Meyer Hall. The Enneagram is a map of consciousness that helps us to see how different personality types relate to themselves, the world, and other people. By understanding these differences, we're better able to:
* skillfully navigate conflict
* understand and empathize with others
* consciously examine our own limiting patterns
* honor or own boundaries while building bridges of connection amidst our different ways of showing up in the world.

This will be a jam-packed interactive class! There will be a lesson on conflict styles, object relations, conflict styles, and social styles; however, the focus will be on grappling with case examples as well as your real-life interpersonal challenges. There will be panel discussions with Q&A.

This class is being offered on a love-offering basis. The suggested donation is $25 (no one will be turned away for lack of funds). Your generosity helps us to continue make wonderful programs like this available to ALL who need it, irrespective of ability to pay. Thank you!

Rev. Nhien, M.Div., J.D. is a former Stanford Lawyer turned interspiritual Unity Minister who is passionate about transformative education. Nhien is an Associate Minister at Unity Temple on the Plaza. She has been studying the Enneagram since 2002 and regularly teaches and does Enneagram-based private spiritual tutoring on the Enneagram & spirituality.

Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support Group, Thursday, January 24th, 2019, 6:30pm - 8:00pm, Heritage Room. Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support Parenting can be one of the most challenging roles of our lives, yet few of us walk into it having the inner resources and skill sets it demands. Mindfulness practices can be a powerful source of refuge while managing the challenges of modern-day parenting.

The intention and invitation of the Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support group is to offer a space for parents, grandparents, child care providers and educators to explore a fuller knowing of themselves and their deepest needs while honoring the sovereignty of the children they care about.

This group meets the fourth Thursday of the month.

Monthly session content will include formal meditation practice, presentations of themes within mindful parenting and community discussion.

Suggested Love Offering: $15 per class.
