“What Dreams are Made Of - The Hidden Power of Dreams & Sleep“

Stacks Image 51700
Thursday, October 20, 2016
7:00 pm
Facilitated by: Bobbi Williams

"Dreams are the mysterious language of the night", says Denise Linn. Dreams give messages meant only for us. They provide information across time and space that offer an opportunity to heal and reconnect with who we truly are. Yet we easily forget to pay attention. Since ancient times, dream weavers directed the course of a tribe or culture. They were emissaries of night wisdom in deep alignment with the forces of nature. Every night we dream, sometimes we remember. It is a tremendous step in our spiritual growth to pursue the self-exploration our dreams offer us-they help direct our course.

In this class, Bobbi will take you on an adventure into the world of your dreams. Learn how important it is to pay attention and understand the gift of all of your dreams, good and bad.  

Bobbi Williams spent over two decades in Neurology as a Registered EEG Technologist performing studies on thousands of patients, she is also a Certified Spiritual Counselor from the American Institute of Health Care Professionals, and has a Master Degree from the University of Chicago with a concentration in Behavioral Sciences. She is receiving certification in Gateway Dream Work.

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.
