Spirit of Wellness
Sun., March 8, from 11:30 AM - 1:00 pm.  
The Spirit of Wellness gathering will move into new territory in March. The book we will be studying is "The Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear to Faith" by Gabrielle Bernstein.  The topics of the chapters meld so well with Unity principles: "You have a hidden power," "Obstacles are detours in the right direction" and "Be an instrument of love." However, one statement in the middle of the book stands out for Facilitator Lori Kozon and captures her heart and life intention, "Universal Lesson: When you are in a state of joy, you leave a positive imprint on every being in the world." Let us explore together how we can bring joy to ourselves, our friends and families and the world in a time when the world is in need.
