UPCOMING CLASSES and EVENTS AT UNITY TEMPLE

No Boundary Class with Robert Brumet, Thursdays, May 26 & June 2, 2016, 7:00pm - 8:30pm, Heritage Room. Reverend Robert Brumet will teach a six-week series of classes based on the book No Boundary. Book available in bookstore.

No Boundary is one of Ken Wilber’s first and most popular books. It is one of the first works to map the full-spectrum of human potential. It integrates the best of psychology with the best of spirituality in a seamless and enlightening framework. In drawing from the finest of both Eastern and Western approaches to human growth and development it charts the complete spectrum of consciousness from sub-consciousness to self-conscious to superconscious; from instinct to ego to God. It offers an array of practices and exercises to show the reader how to reach the higher states of consciousness.

The classes will include instruction, discussion and practice. It is highly recommended (but not required) that participants read Chapters 1 & 2 prior to the first class on April 28. Book available in bookstore.

Suggested $15 Love Offering per class

U-Thrive: The Wisdom of the Enneagram, Tuesdays, May 31 - June 7, 2016, 6:30pm - 8:30pm, Temple SPACE. In this 6-week course, we'll explore the ancient, transformational system of psychology known as the Enneagram. Students will gain a general overview of the Enneagram, the concepts of "lines," "wings" and "subtypes." We will also devote time each class session to more deeply exploring each of the Nine Enneagram Types, including the vices/virtues and fixations associated with each type. We will be invited to consider how knowledge of Type can help us to gain self awareness, an essential component to personal and/or spiritual growth, as well as how applying such knowledge can improve our relationships to ourselves, others, and the world.

Additionally, we'll get to hear from Guest Panelists who will discuss how they came to know their own Types and how knowledge of the Enneagram has served them in their personal and work lives.

Facilitator: Reverend Nhien Dougherty, M.Div., J.D.

Drop-ins welcome but RSVP requested. Email nhien@unitytemple to RSVP or for more info. $25.00 Suggested love offering/class.  Facebook Event
