Sunday Service: Sunday, August 21st at 10:00 AM
Facing the Trials of Life with Courage & an Open Heart | with Ananda Das
Heartache, disappointment, betrayal, and abandonment have all been common themes throughout human existence. In the ancient teachings of yoga, the archetype of Hanuman serves to remind us how to live a courageous heart of service and devotion amidst all the trials that life puts us through.
Join Ananda Das as he shares his insight on Hanuman and how this ancient technology of devotion can serve you to heal and open your heart. He’ll be sharing a wisdom talk, chants, and a meditation.

This week we’d like to give a big thank you to Robin Hanbridge. Robin resides in Vermont and is currently traveling the country in his colorful bus with his 3 handmade gongs and a beautiful didgeridoo he crafted from the branch of a Vermont maple tree. He has been sharing his sound healing talents with us each Sunday evening at Unity. Those that have attended his sound baths are amazed by the experience. You walk out on a different vibration for sure! Robin will be leading these experiences through the end of September and we highly recommend you give it a try! Thank you for sharing your musical gifts with us Robin and for supporting our community. We are honored to have you.
