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!

As we age, we face increasing needs to make adjustments. Our bodies, our roles, and our circumstances May all be changing. Some of these changes bring great pleasure and peace. Others, in response to losses, may bring pain. We may feel overwhelmed or grateful and wise, having lived through so much. This season of our lives will go more smoothly if we use spiritual keys. In this group we will be sharing our journeys at this time of life and how we apply the keys.

The Five Principles

The five principles constitute core teachings of the Unity spiritual movement founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. These same principles reflect the laws of the universe that apply to everyone, all the time. They show up in every major religion, and are all reflected in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The author encourages every reader to “work with these principles, test them, apply them to your life, and watch what happens.”

The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone. Brene observes that we are experienceing a spiritual crisis of disconnection and she introduces four practices of true belonging.

Peaceful Passing

Group Host: Chris Tippets
Locaton: At Unity
Starts: Tuesday Oct 17, 2023 6:00 PM
Meeting Times: Every Tuesday for 7 weeks.

This group will explore our experiences and ideas about passing from the physical realm. How can we approach that transition with peace–whether it’s our own transition or that of a loved one? What do we believe is beyond this veil? How do other cultures approach death? We may decide as a group to create a ritual of celebration, like the Day of the Dead. This group will be ours to create.

If you ever felt like you’ve never been REALLY HEARD, and understood, this could be an extremely powerful experience. You’ll also learn the value of giving the most priceless GIFT to all of your family and relationships – your undivided attention.
