Free Your Soul’s Voice Playshop This Sunday
Sunday, Oct. 16th from 12:00 to 2:00 PM at Unity with Johanna Beekman
This workshop is an upbeat, playful exploration of the human voice, designed for everyone. Through sound, movement, rhythm, speech, and song, Johanna helps participants to unlearn their ideas about singing and speaking and learn how to tune and care for the human instrument. Inspired by the safe, playful energy of the space, we create and explore light-hearted chants and harmonies, layering together our perfectly unique voices, just for the joy and freedom of it. (Not to mention health and nervous system benefits!) No previous singing or chanting experience is necessary. Class cost is a $20 love offering to support the instructor and Unity.
The Universe Is Calling
Wednesdays beginning Oct. 26th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM on Zoom
The universe is calling you to “take charge of your life; to release your imprisoned splendor.” This class is for seekers of guidance, wholeness, and self-regulation and is based on the book The Universe is Calling by the acclaimed Unity minister and author, Eric Butterworth. His spiritually liberating wisdom is powerful and inspiring, and it will lead course participants to a truer and stronger connection with the Divine. Prayer is a technology for accessing all this and more, and you will emerge from this class with a working knowledge of how to connect with the Divinity of You through prayer. This is a 5 week class taught by Unity Instructor Rajiv Parti MD. Rajiv has had profound life changes since practicing Unity principles. He’s has great enthusiasm for sharing all that he has experienced and you will be inspired for sure!

Healing Sound Sundays
Every Sunday from 5:30 to 6:30 PM at Unity – All are welcome
A Sound Bath is a passive healing journey, an opportunity to deeply relax and bathe in the vibrations of the healing harmonics present within crystal bowls, gentle instruments, voice, and chimes. Lisa Swisher, who has over 30 years of experience as a Reiki Master Teacher and Energy Healer, will be leading you in this 1-hour soothing sonic meditation. Reiki energy will also be flowing to the group! At the beginning of class, you will be asked to quietly set intentions for what you would like to release and what you would like to allow into your life. Please wear comfy clothing, bring a yoga mat, pillow, blanket (if needed), and a desire to be uplifted and transported through sacred sound!

This week we’d like to celebrate a beautiful young man, Nolan Finch. Nolan’s dad is our music director, Dave, who has been a part of our Unity community for over 20 years, so Nolan has grown up in Unity. He is now 14 and the love and kindness he shares with others is nothing short of inspirational! He has no hesitation in telling others how great they are and making kids his age feel appreciated and valued, something his peers desperately need more of. Ask him to share one of his stories with you and you’ll see what we mean. Nolan, we applaud you for your kindness and the love you share with others. 🥰☀️🤗
