Practicing the Principles in Uncertain Times

October 9, 2020, from 7-9 p.m. (CT)

Has your inner peace been challenged by the upheaval of 2020?
Through pandemic and social unrest, you may be wondering how to stay centered and peace-filled. In quiet moments, are you asking questions such as:

  • How do I find peace in the midst of an ever-changing world?
  • How do I discern what is mine to do in times of unrest? Do I act? Do I simply hold space?
  • How can I see things differently when my mind seems filled with anxiousness?

On October 9, 2020, join New Thought leaders Revs. Ellen Debenport, Michael Gott, Wendy Craig-Purcell, and Sheila McKeithen, J.D., for a spirited discussion about translating spiritual beliefs into social action.

While we strive to stay centered ourselves, we must also discern what is ours to do.

You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of foundational spiritual teachings as well as practical tools to restore your inner peace and guide you to right action.

Price: Contribute as You Choose.

Unraveling Grief: Embracing Life to Heal Retreat

March 18–21, 2021

Are you struggling with the impact of pain and loss in your life?

  • Are you someone who has lost a loved member of your family or significant person in your life? Or perhaps grieving the loss of something significant that has left you unable to move forward – a lost relationship, home, job or pet?
  • Are your feelings of grief holding you back from acceptance, forgiveness and ultimately healing?
  • Are you ready to transform your experience of grief and embrace life more fully?

If so, say “YES” to joining us for a 3-day retreat on the beautiful Unity Village campus outside Kansas City, Missouri, with sacred walking trails, meditation garden and chapel, world-class rose garden and fountains, quiet places for personal reflection, labyrinth, coffee shop and bookstore among the many special features of this little bit of paradise in the Midwest.

You will be gently guided into deep and empowering transformational exercises and interpersonal activities, meditative transformation shifts, gong vibrational healing, musical enrichment and powerful sharing in support of each person’s personal journey of healing pain, loss and grief to reclaim a meaningful experience of life, a sense of gratitude and wholeness.

Leave with a new realization of how honoring the gift revealed within grief is the legacy of the love you grieve, as a spiritual last will and testament from your personal loss.

Presenters: Rev. Meghan Smith Brooks: Ordained Unity Minister, Certified Grief Coach, Speaker, Retreat Leader and Spiritual Educator. She has 2 Guided Meditation CDs, and Author of “Unraveling Grief: A Mother’s Spiritual Journey of Healing and Discovery.”
Teri Wilder: Singer, Songwriter, Certified Sound Healer, Reiki Master, Certified Medical Intuitive, and Retreat Leader. She has 4 CDs of original music and 1 Gong Meditation CD available.
