Sunday Service: August 13th at 10:00 AM

Invitation to Sunday Service with William Gregory

The Nature of BOUNDARIES

with William Gregory

This Sunday we will be pondering the parallels, perplexeties, and power that exist regarding Boundaries. In nature, physics and interpersonal relationships.  Boundaries are the structure that make perception and reality possible. As fellow beings here, doing time in a body. This is a worthy subject to consider. William is such a gifted story teller and speaks from the heart. We hope you can join us!

Breathwork and Sound Healing Journey with Eostar & Mathias

Friday, August 18th from 7:00 – 9:30 PM at Unity

Eostar and Mathias have played sacred acoustic music and sound healing music to audiences along the West Coast and South America for more than a decade both as devotional musicians and as sound healers. The type of breathwork Eostar will lead is an ancient pranayama called Vyana Vayu. It is a dynamic active meditation that will quickly take the participants to altered, higher states of consciousness. Participants will be encouraged to breathe dynamically using a certain technique that will be explained prior to starting. The breathwork experience will be gently followed by a return to physicality on the wings of sound healing instruments.

They taught this class last year and it was such an incredible experience. They are gifted instructors and musicians. We hope you can come. Cost is on a sliding scale of $15 to $30.

Member Appreciation

This week we are celebrating member Christine Hart. Since becoming a member about 6 months ago Christine is a regular volunteer on the cleaning crew and as a greeter. She has such a heart for giving. When joining the cleaning crew she said “I have someone come clean my own house, but if Unity needs help with cleaning I’m happy to do that 😁”. Her smile, outgoing personality, and attention to detail are so appreciated as a greeter. I am especially grateful that she noticed the women’s bathroom soap was empty and took the time to figure out how to refill it! A task I have been hoping I wouldn’t not have to deal with since I can never figure out how to open that stupid soap dispenser 🤣. Thank you Christine for being such a giving member our community. We appreciate you!! 🕺🏻🌈🤗


Tumalo Park & Prema Mayi Concert – What a Beautiful Weekend!

What a great time we had this past weekend camping, picnicking, and floating the river at Tumalo State park! Thank you to all who joined us. Then on Saturday night we had guest musician Prema Mayi and her son bring such beautiful song and energy to our sanctuary. What a joy filled weekend!
