“EFT Tapping Group Session”

Thursday, November 17, 2016
7:00 to 9:00 pm
Facilitated by: Celeste Magers

EFT “Tapping” is a technique that switches the nervous system from “fight-flight-or-freeze” to “rest-and-digest,” allowing us to calm worry, find the hidden beliefs that are working against us, and release them. Then our affirmations can really work! And we can heal.

Our previous workshops about EFT “Tapping,” received such enthusiastic receptions, that we decided to get together periodically to “tap” together on common issues. But you don’t have to have come to the previous sessions to come to this one. Tapping is a very simple process and beginners will pick it up quickly and easily. So join us, even if you are new to tapping.

Bring ideas for what you’d like to tap on and release!

Free will offering.

10:30 am to Noon
Facilitated by: Rev. Mary Beth Speer

Monday Morning Metaphysics, a casual, ongoing weekly New Thought class, is embarking on an exciting new book selection, THE UNIVERSE IS CALLING: Opening to the Divine through Prayer by Eric Butterworth. This New Thought classic delves into the very heart of our connection with the divine by boldly exploring the history, nature and function of effective prayer.  In everyday language, Dr. Butterworth also shares practical techniques for deepening our prayer experience at every level.

It will be preceded by a short (1-hour) meta-movie, "Special Delivery." Actor/writer Harry Hart-Browne wrote and acts in this amazing one-man play, wherein we meet 20 characters who show what it’s like to “remember our Spirit while doing the Earth gig.”  Here’s text from the promo:
“Harry’s excited!  He just got cast in a new play!  The director, however, is his Higher Self, and the play is this lifetime on Earth.  Will Harry get trapped in his role, or will he remember his Spirit?”
Special Delivery was recorded live.  Monday Morning Metaphysics is open to all;  come for the video and stay for our new book!  Love offering taken.
A Love offering is accepted at each class.  For more information please call 847-297-0997

“W.I.R.E. - Women in Recovery Excel”

7:00 pm

On Sundays, Unity Northwest Church will be hosting W.I.R.E. -Women In Recovery Excel at 7:00pm.  We will be reading from the book "A Women's Way Through The 12 Steps".  Stephanie Covington designed this book to "Help a woman find her own path". 
Instead of focusing on one specific addiction issue in this group, we will be focusing on how we struggle with powerlessness and finding the solution through the 12 Steps.  Our goal is to create a sacred space where women can continue to discover the divine within and walk their own unique journey beyond addiction.  Long term recovery brings multiple levels of healing including how we relate to ourselves, others, our sexuality, our purpose and how we relate to the world.    

Come join us if you are interested in growing your recovery to flourish in sobriety. A love offering will be accepted.
