Spirit Groups

Learn & Grow Together

Q: What are Spirit Groups?
A: Groups of 4-8 people that meet weekly for a 6 or 7 week session to share and discuss a Spiritual book, topic, or video. Groups commit to confidentiality and support of each other.

We start a new round of Spirit Groups each season. These spiritually focused discussion groups, normally based on video curriculum or books, have provided a rich source of connection and a sense of belonging to a vibrant, welcoming community for those who have participated.

Groups are limited in size to 4-8 people, so sign up as soon as you are ready to commit! Our goal is to have enough groups so that everyone can participate, but if the group you want to join is already full, let us know and we may start another group! We urge you to make time for this in your schedule. This is how we deliver our mission to embody love and awaken spiritual consciousness. It is so much more effective in a small group.

It’s easy to join a Spirit Group and anyone is welcome, you don’t need to be a Unity member!

If you still need help, contact Kevin Kubota, our Spirit Group Leader, via email.  You can also talk to Kevin about hosting a Spirit Group!
