Fillmore Festival

August 4–7, 2022

Immerse yourself in the healing teachings of Unity founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.

Myrtle Fillmore, who founded Unity with her husband Charles, used prayer and affirmations to heal lifelong ailments. Her intense healing experience has been an inspiration to people around the world and is the cornerstone of how Unity began more than 130 years ago.

Myrtle was sickly as a child and a young adult suffering from tuberculosis. After attending a New Thought lecture in 1886, Myrtle came away with one statement that changed her life: “I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness.”

During this year’s Fillmore Festival, you will hear more about Myrtle’s healing story and learn healing principles from a variety of Unity and New Thought ministers. There will be tours of Unity Village and time to explore the Unity Archives too.
