Writing Workshop, Monday, July 22, 2019, 3:30pm - 5:30pm, Classroom B. Sometimes dreams do come true.  Pat Berge’s dream is to bring storytelling and writing alive to small, intimate circles.  Pat, while studying for her MFA under Professor John Schultz at Columbia College, Chicago, found John had a dream, too. 

It came alive in workshops of up to10 students at a time, sitting in a circle.  Students were coached to see a moment happening in a place in their minds, and then tell that story to the group. Once stories flow around and across the circle, they can easily be captured on the page or the screen. This became the Story Workshop Method.

Pat Berge now offers that possibility to you. Storytellers and writers can tell their way into journals, letters, poems, or just a note to a good friend.

This class meets monthly on the 2nd and 4th Monday.

Deepening Practice: Half-day Silent Retreat, Saturday, July 27, 2019, 9:00am - 1:00pm. Whether you are an advanced practitioner, simply wanting to enrich your current understanding or are brand new to meditation, join us Saturday as we explore ways in which we may deepen our practice and bring more peace and happiness to our world.

We've realized that the mantra, "the simpler the better" rings true for Deepening Practice, so every LAST SATURDAY of the month at Unity Temple you will find an opportunity for a 4-hour Silent Retreat. There will be brief introduction and a bell to signal alternating times of walking/sitting, but very little spoken guidance throughout the retreat. Along with that, Victor and other meditation teachers will be on hand, and available for 1-1 consultations during the retreat, if you want to take some time to process your experience, or ask questions about your personal meditation and mindfulness practice. 

We hope many of you will make time to attend part or all of this 4-hour retreat.

Courageous Conversations, Sunday, July 28, 2019, 12:30pm - 2:00pm, Manse Living Room. The Courageous Conversations Group’s mission is to speak Truth to power through conscious dialogue that will lead to greater diversity and inclusivity within and outside of the church walls. In other words, the aim is to create—from the inside-out--a world that works for everyone. This initiative was started in 2016 by Rev. Sandra Campbell and a small group of thoughtful, committed congregants aiming to create sacred space for people of diverse views to engage in thought-provoking, heart-opening, mind-expanding, and often uncomfortable conversations on topics that are often difficult and controversial. The group believes that only when we are courageous enough to be uncomfortable can we hope to be the change we want to see in the world.  If you are one of those thoughtful, committed people, come join the conversation!

Meets Monthly on the 2nd and 4th Sunday

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

Serenity Flow, Sunday, August 4, 2019, 10:30am - 11:30am, Temple SPACE. Join us for Serenity Flow: a new approach to Sunday morning as we blend yoga, live music, meditation and Satsang (message) for a truly unique spiritual experience.

YOGA: Attuned to the integrative energy of sound, live music by seasoned musicians accompanies this morning yoga practice. Awaken your senses with a smooth, flowing sequence of yoga poses. 
Linking poses with deep breathing is like coming home to your body, welcoming your spirit into its temple, naturally balanced and calm. 

MEDITATION: Learn techniques from many traditions as we explore the vast inner landscapes in a safe, tranquil environment, connecting with each other in consciousness.

SATSANG: Drawing from the rich tradition of teachings from eastern philosophy and western psychology the message each Sunday will be a practical application that can inspire and enrich your daily life.
