All are invited to infuse our community prayer requests with love and blessings before we send them off to Silent Unity, where they will be held in prayer for 30 days. This meditation service is the same sacred practice used by Silent Unity. One heart, one voice in prayer, affirming the light within.

Join us to discuss the principles of “A Course in Miracles”. This self-study spiritual thought system teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. Contact Praveen Khilnani at 650-468-8950 or firstname.lastname@example.org
1st and 3rd Mondays @ 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Facilitated by Jane Reeder in the YES Hall
Love offering – No prior experience necessary – Bring a friend
Join us in our Inquiry Circle at Unity in which we gather with others committed to questioning their thoughts—to gain clarity and reduce stress. Thought patterns seem hard to change precisely because we still believe these stressful thoughts. However, would you still believe them if you could see that they are not true? And if this were simple to learn, how might it change your life? Come find out. Meetings will be punctuated by discussions, video, and audio materials of Byron Katie.
1st and 3rd Sundays @ 1:30 – 3:30 pm
