Love offering – No prior experience necessary – Bring a friend
Facilitated by Jane Reeder
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.
