Introduction to Sunday Service with Rev. Cylvia Hayes

Sikhs and Druids and Christians Oh My! A Call to Unity and Conscience

with Rev. Cylvia Hayes

Several of us recently attended the 2023 Parliament of World Religions. This incredibly diverse and colorful assembly demonstrated a multi-faith commitment to raising consciousness, spreading peace, and developing a worldview of healing and unity. Cylvia will share some stories from the event and how we all might harness these wild times to elevate conscience and consciousness in our lives and our world.

A Course in Miracles Study Group

Wednesday, August 23rd at 5:30pm with Rev. Cylvia Hayes

This is a gathering to discuss the wisdom in A Course in Miracles. Each session will include a talk on a key Course teaching and then open Q and A and discussion. This week we’ll be discussing what the Course in Miracles has to say about idols, illusions, and false interests. This will build upon the concepts of “The World” as illusion and the “Real World”, like the “Kingdom of Heaven” being a state of consciousness. Our conversation will cover the mind-blowing, shift your whole worldview aspects of these topics as well as on-the-ground, everyday ways of harnessing these teachings in our lives right here and right now.

Perfect for people with a lot of experience with the Course and those who are just starting out or curious. Open to non-Unity members and free, but love offerings are appreciated to support Unity and Cylvia’s time.

Home Movie Night – The Natural Law

One of our members found out about this movie and thought her Unity family might be interested in checking it out too.

The Natural Law explores one man’s decade-long journey back to wellness by embracing a new life aligned with nature’s code. Could Ayurveda be the answer to the physical, emotional, and spiritual threats imposed on us by modern life?
