Anthony Bozzi

Anthony Bozzi is a writer, performer, and lifelong seeker. Proudly born and (often) raised in Chicago, IL; his first exposure to New Thought was through Rev. Mike Matoin and Unity of Chicago’s “Home On Thome.” It is his personal mission to prove that kindness and creativity can change the world. Unity of Oak Park and Reverend Ev’s bright enthusiasm has been instrumental in boosting this ideal through the inner and outer transformation of Anthony’s own life.

He is a licensed professional practitioner through Centers for Spiritual Living and has spoken or given workshops at numerous centers in the Midwest and Southern California. As a member of the (R)ev’s leadership team; he takes great pride in facilitating special events here at Unity of Oak Park such as baptisms, weddings, memorial services, and more. He is especially proud of his personal tour of UOP’s building during the Chicago Architecture Center’s annual Open House Chicago event. (And his famous side excursions through the kitchen.)

Anthony is a huge fan of affirmations, positive prayers, talk therapy, Ernest Holmes, the 12 Powers, Ryan Priester’s metaphysics classes, “The Daily Word”, live music, road trips, independent film, visual storytelling, and comic books. He also owns far too many neckties. It’s a vision come true for Anthony to be on the launch team for UOP’s Inner Sunlight Meditation Service. He is excited to experience it as a facilitator, participant, and door guy. (Feel free to ask him for the best seats.) He thanks you for reading this far; is grateful to stop speaking of himself in the third person; and sends light, love, and laughter to all.


Karen McArdle




Karen McArdle has spent much of her professional and personal life inspiring others to recognize and tap into their potential and seek possibilities. For many years she instructed adults in complex technical subjects, inspired university students as an Adjunct Professor in aerospace, and taught thousands of Chicago Public School K-8 and High School students as a guest teacher in Aerospace. Karen has worked hundreds of volunteer hours for non-profit organizations and served on a number of non-profit boards of directors that support diversity for career paths in technical fields. 



Although her vocations have and still demand precision and certainty, Karen seeks harmony and balance in her life too through meditation, Feng Shui, quietude, and other modalities. She knows that wisdom comes from many sources and honors these sacred teachings. 


Karen is professionally trained and certified in Feng Shui which includes Space Clearing. Unity teachings, especially Catherine Ponder’s many books, have influenced her Feng Shui and Space Clearing studies over the past twenty-five years.  She shares ways of opening the energy flow in our lives including guided cleansing meditations. Unity has been a part of Karen’s life for almost 30 years. She is happy and grateful to continue her learning with others at Unity of Oak Park.
