Unity as Christianity

In a recent Sunday talk, co-minister Shad Groverland shared inspiring and insightful elements that related the essential definition of Unity as Christian. And there is much to be understood from Shad’s statement, “Unity is Christianity the way Jesus meant it to be.” Watch “Healing Our Religious Past” from March 24, 2019.

“I will continue to live from the center of my wide-open heart, Nia opens me!”

Today I was leaving my dance class with my daughter and I was flying high, and extremely inspired.  I have been studying “Nia,” for about 2 years now and it still surprises me how much I still learn, how much it has transformed my physical strength, my heart and my mind.

The Oneness Immersion

How to get out of your own way when things aren’t going your way!

Do you feel like you are in a challenging spell where you feel like you can’t find your footing in your creative or abundant or romantic out-picturing inside or out? Is everything feeling like it has fallen a little dead and the flow of life has come to a halt? If you have a spiritual practice you will recognize these phases sooner, where you realize that things aren’t actually working out for you right now and you are asking questions…

Unity as a Spiritual Movement

For thousands of years religion has tried to sell itself as the solution to our individual and global problems, with dogmatic ideas about how to live and worship. These ideas have been applicable and beneficial for a select few, but by and large humanity has been faced with the realization that we are still plagued with the same problems we had hundreds of years ago. People feel broken, the world is in conflict and religion has fallen short of delivering on its promise.
