Ongoing - Tuesdays, 6:00 pm
Facilitated by: Greg Barrette, Senior Minister

"Spending forty-five minutes in meditation can make a powerful impact on your well-being and quality of life, says Greg Barrette. "There is no single better tool for spiritual growth and personal well-being than meditation. Being supported by a group makes meditation much easier. Numerous studies by research labs at major universities have confirmed the effectiveness of meditation to heal and reduce stress. We have witnessed healing of mind, body and circumstances that can be attributed to this group practice.”  

A free-will offering will be taken. For more information on this Silent Meditation Service, please call 847-297-0997.

Wednesdays, 7:00 to 8:00 pm

Laughter Yoga will be led by Celeste Magers, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher.

Is laughter really the best medicine? Laughter Yoga has been touted as perhaps the best alternative health therapy for complete body-mind wellness. Today there are thousands of laughter yoga groups in over 100 countries. Research has shown that 15 minutes a day of deep belly laughter can strengthen the immune system, relax muscles, reduce anxiety, anger and depression, reduce pain, improve breathing, blood flow, digestion, and sleep, lower blood pressure, and help people get along better. And besides that, it’s fun! Come and find out. No sense of humor required!

"World Day of Prayer Service"

Stacks Image 2655
Wednesday, Sept 9, 2015
7:00 pm
Facilitated by: Unity Northwest Prayer Team

The Prayer Team of Unity Northwest Church has created and will host a special prayer service on Wednesday, September 9th at 7:00pm to begin a 24-hour prayer vigil.

The Wednesday night service will feature testimonies of prayer team members inspired by some of the ideas and practices discussed in the book "Pray Up Your Life: 50 Powerful Prayer Practices To Help You Create The Life You Desire".  The book is written by Charline Manuel, Unity Minister at the Unity Center of Miami, and noted author and speaker.  

Along with the testimonies, the service will also include music, meditation, prayers, and an unusual guest who plans to get away from it all by lifting himself out of the world with the help of a batch of helium balloons.  Will he succeed, or will he realize that a higher consciousness is more effective than a higher altitude?  

Join us as we present his story, as well as unite with others across the globe to pray for ourselves, our communities, and our world.  As we join in this annual Day of Prayer with Silent Unity in its 125th anniversary year, as well as other spiritual gatherings worldwide, we are reminded of our oneness in Spirit, and with each other and our world.  This event is an opportunity to lift us all up to new heights of awareness, understanding, peace, and compassion, and to help create Heaven right here on Earth.

Unity believes prayer is a powerful and transforming way to achieve healing, harmony, peace, and understanding among the people of the world.  We invite everyone to join us for this moving experience.
