Sunday Service: October 15th at 10:00 AM
with Rev. Jane Hiatt
This is a season of harvest, a season of gathering together, welcoming others into our homes and our lives. What is it that makes someone feel welcome? As a Wild Soul Sanctuary, what can we do to increase the sense of welcome? What are we welcoming (or not) of ourselves into the hearth of our own hearts?
Bring a snack to share after service!

Self-awareness is necessary for optimal balance and functioning in life. To be self-aware is to realize the dimensions of self and the states of those dimensions. Students will explore the dimensions of self by studying various systems and techniques for self-awareness. They will become more conscious of their attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being; symptoms of stress and imbalance; healthy responses to stress and imbalance; and how to integrate spiritual principles to maintain balance and honor all facets of their being.

Consciousness Cleanse with Rev. Jane
Starting Wednesday, October 25 from 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM for 5 weeks
As an expression of nature, we do best when we let go of that which no longer serves us: the beliefs, attitudes, behaviors, and stuff. All of this release begins with consciousness. For five weeks, we will focus on various aspects of letting go, preparing our minds and hearts for the dreaming season.

She often raises her hand during Sunday celebration time to share something good happening in her life. This past week she decided to collect some flowers and as people left the sanctuary she handed them a flower and said, “thank you for coming to Unity Community” 🥰. We appreciate your kindness Florence! And thank you to her dad William for bringing her each week along with her little sister Mabel.
