Group Offerings

     

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 Sept. 1).
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.

Consciousness Club

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, from 9:00 - 9:30 am (no meeting on Sept. 8).  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.

Spirit of Wellness
Every Second Sunday, from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This discussion group facilitated by Lori Kozon is based on Myrtle Fillmore’s proposition, “You have everything you need to enable you to do the many things you came into the world to do, but you need to let the Spirit of God take hold of your soul and set it to doing its perfect work in the body.” Tools that support your wellness as well as help you determine what naturally works best for your own body will be discussed. Guest speakers who are experts in innovative technologies and energetic practices will be included.
