Unity provides an opportunity for our communities to come together in many ways. Whether we gather to discuss our teachings and principles, or assemble to peacefully meditate, we are demonstrating our greatest strength, Unity. Please see some of our group offerings below, and don't forget to visit our calendar of events for new classes and events.
Tai Chi for Health
Every First and Third Sunday, from 9:00 - 9:30 am (no meeting on the first Sunday in June).
Often, tai chi is referred to as meditation in motion. It is one of the most effective exercises for the health of mind and body. Slow and gentle movements enable the qi or life force, to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body. Practice of tai chi results in harmony. Dr. Paul Lam, a family physician and a tai chi practitioner for more than 40 years developed a range of Tai Chi for Health programs. Sheila Swann-Guerrero, MS, CTRS became a certified instructor after attending Dr. Lam’s Instructor Training June 2018. Sheila brings her desire to serve UOP and passion for tai chi together to offer beginning Tai Chi. Please feel welcome to join us to learn and practice tai chi together.
Every First Sunday, at 11:30 am.
This club meets each month to inspire, support, and encourage those who wish to further develop a higher consciousness and fully live the promises of Truth. Coordinated by Ron Johnson, LUT.
Sunday Morning Meditation
Every Second and Fourth Sunday, at 9:00 am.
Join us for time in the silence before the regular service to open our hearts and minds to the message Spirit has for each of us, we will also consciously move our combined Love and Light out into the world to be part of God’s plan for healing. Marilyn Joy will provide readings and guided meditations to move us closer to the Christ presence within. Please bring your energy, deepen your meditation practice and start your Sunday from the High Place.
Spirit of Wellness Group
Every Second Sunday, from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Spirit of Wellness group, hosted by Lorraine Kozon at Unity Church of Oak Park, will feature a very accomplished guest speaker on June 9, Dr. Thom Lobe. Dr. Lobe is Board Certified in General Surgery and Pediatric Surgery and is also licensed in Allopathic and Osteopathic medicine. He has a focus on minimally invasive surgery, having developed one of the earliest programs applying laser therapy to treat pediatric diseases. Throughout his career has acquired a great understanding of advanced nutrition, metabolism, advanced hormone therapy, anti-aging medicine and regenerative wound healing. Dr. Lobe has been recognized on three continents with lifetime achievement awards. As recently as last month, Dr. Lobe was recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Lifetime Achiever for his work as a Regenerative Medicine Specialist. We are blessed with having Dr. Lobe share with us his extensive experience and how the newest natural therapies can harness the power of our own bodies for health and healing. Part of what he will be discussing is how Stem Cell Therapy is not only used for traditional purposes such as joint healing, but can also help the treatment of other diseases such as Parkinson’s, MS, Autism, COPD, etc. You never know when you may need this information for the benefit of your friends, your family or yourself.
