"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.”

“How to Make Tidying & Decluttering a Joyful Spiritual Practice”

Stacks Image 41842
Mondays, June 6 & 13, 2016
7:00 to 9:00 pm
Facilitated by: Rev. Mary Beth Speer
 
I have a happy new passion: I am tidying* up my home and my life, following simple processes found in the book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.”  Author Marie Kondo states, “A dramatic reorganization of the home causes correspondingly dramatic changes in lifestyle and perspective.  It is life-transforming.” 
 
If you’re like me, clutter sometimes feels like a vicious cycle which I try to “manage” but from which I never fully escape.  The Kon-Mari Method offers simple tools for tidying (and staying tidy, once and for all.)  The results are magical!  Only a few weeks into it, I am already seeing how to integrate these simple processes as part of my daily spiritual practices – And you can too.
 
This two-part workshop  is open to all and will present the underlying principles and foundational concepts of The Kon-Mari Method, as well as basic ideas for getting started.  

*tidy (definition):  neat and orderly in appearance or habits :  well ordered, cared for
 
A Love offering is accepted at each class.  For more information please call 847-297-0997

taught by Greg Barrette, minister of Unity Northwest Church.

“This class will focus on practical tools for clearing away false
beliefs and accessing universal wisdom" said Greg Barrette.  "The renowned California psychiatrist Dr. Mary Allen was one of the pioneers of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and was my mentor for many years before her passing in the 1990s.  Mary taught a seamless system of understanding God and self, awakening intuition and forgiving past hurts.  She was a true pioneer of the human potential movement.  It was at a workshop of hers that the American Association of Past Life
Therapists was founded back in the 1970s."

A free-will offering will be taken and no pre-registration is
required. For more information, please call 847-297-0997.

"Monday Morning Metaphysics"

Stacks Image 2669
Mondays Starting June 6
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”

Sundays
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.
