Invitation to Sunday’s talk, with Debra Arlyn

Dream Your Way Forward: Intention, Focus and Intuition

with Debra Arlyn

Overcoming stress, anxiety and conflict begins by “dreaming” our way forward, and believing that our dreams hold the power to create what we desire. Consciously choosing which inner visions and mental pictures we cultivate in our mind’s eye, requires intention, focus and patience. Learning how to trust the process of manifestation (or “dreaming forward”) – helps us navigate life more creatively, effectively, and with authentic empowerment and resilience.

At just 18, Debra earned the title “the girl with the incredible voice” from the CEO of Capitol Records. Her dynamic talent has been a standout presence ever since winning “Oregon Idol” and competing on “American Idol” – as well as winning the Nashville Song of the year Contest and having her music featured on the E! and WB TV networks. Her live performances, motivational speaking, and professional coaching and consulting business are all bound by one common thread—her extraordinary voice. Having triumphed over debilitating stage fright and anxiety in her youth, and navigating a complete life and career re-launch after a divorce that saw the loss of a six-figure family business, to self-healing through severe burnout and health challenges – Debra remains more invigorated and empowered than ever. She is now dedicated to leading others to find their inner power, embrace their inner visions, and trust their inner voice. And above all, to never stop dreaming their way forward – no matter what obstacles arise.


Bring a favorite snack item to share with the community after service! We’ll provide the coffee and tea ☕️.

Classes & Events


We have a special program for our 5-12 year olds this week 💖.

They will be in the foyer making beautiful felted soap for Mother’s Day. Suzanne Landry and Jill Nishball will be leading this activity. The felt acts as an exfoliant on your skin, while the soap cleanses. Please have each child bring up to five soaps. You can choose your personal favorite, if you’re the one being celebrated on Mother’s Day. Scented, unscented, hand-crafted, store bought, glycerin, hard milled, goat milk….all work equally well.

The following week (May 12) we will begin our outdoor playtime for the kids. You can volunteer to be the required parent volunteer for that week or ensuing weeks by clicking here

Member Appreciation

I, Amandine LRH, would like to personally thank Eric who has made a beautiful performance this past Sunday at our beloved spiritual center after being away for a few weeks. It was wonderful to have his voice fill our sacred space once more. I extend this moment of appreciation to all the wonderful members of Solshine for showing up, week after week and bring us their best to the pleasure of our hearts and ears.


Making a Cash Donation at Sunday Service?

You may have noticed that we have these pink envelopes in the chair pockets in our sanctuary. These envelopes are for those of you who like to do cash donations and would like Unity to keep track of the amount you donate each year. If you are putting a check in the offering basket we will enter the name on the check into our records, so no need to use the pink envelope. If you don’t care about us keeping track of your donations, no need to use a pink envelope, just put your cash in the offering basket.
