Fred Luskin, PhD, director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good, and Donatella Moltisanti, a globally-renown sound healer, present “Experience Forgiveness.” Dr. Luskin will open the event with a discussion of the principles and applications of forgiveness, then go on to share both scientific research and clinical anecdotes that reveal how the mind-body-spirit connection makes forgiveness a key part of overall wellness.

Following this presentation, Donatella will share how music can open the portal to and activate feelings of forgiveness – not only through guiding the listener into a profound state of relaxation and meditation, but also through inviting the listener back to the state of wholeness that existed prior to insult or injury. Donatella then will begin the experiential part of the event, guiding participants through a Moltisanti Soul Singing program – combining guided meditation with operatic vocalization and crystal singing bowls, opening the channels of forgiveness. At the end of this event, both facilitators will answer audience questions.

The Universe Is Calling: Opening to the Divine Through Prayer

Unity Palo Alto 3391 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto

A five-week class on Sundays with Casey Wicker, Licensed Unity Teacher Candidate
Dates: Sundays, 6/10-7/15 (no class on 7/8) @ 12:00-2:00pm
Cost: Love offering

Based on a dualistic concept of God, prayer has historically been directed to a God both outside of and distant from ourselves. We will explore the function and nature of prayer from the view of Unity Minister Eric Butterworth in his book The Universe Is Calling: Opening to the Divine Through Prayer. During this interactive course, we will:

  • Identify the limiting beliefs that prevent us from living more authentically from an awareness of our divine nature
  • Discover how meditation and the Silence can bring us into alignment with our Christ Nature
  • Practice Unity’s 5-Step Prayer Process, and discuss how we pray for self and others

In the words of Eric Butterworth, you are invited to consider that “there is no one to pray to… only a universal flow to get into, a shared consciousness of God, and a spiritual energy to pray from, which is always calling us to express and manifest outwardly… more of our Divine Nature.”

Please read the Introduction, Prologue, and Chapters 1-4 before the first class.

Integrating “The Work” Living in Joy

Unity Palo Alto 3391 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto

With: Martha Creek
Where: Unity Palo Alto YES Hall
Cost: Love offering
Register Today!

Have you put your happiness on hold -- Waiting for something/someone to change so you can be happy?

“The Work” is a simple and deeply transformative process that is helping people around the world approach their stress, guilt, shame and blaming patterns from a perspective of clarity and inner peace. It works for 100% of people who really want to know the truth. You cannot be spiritually mature without emotional maturity. Free YourSELF! NOW!

This workshop is for everyone on a path of SELF-realization. Be guided through a simple, yet powerful process of inquiry to discover that all stressful thoughts and beliefs --- about life, other people, or yourself – radically shift. “The Work” consists of four questions and turnarounds, which are a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. With inquiry, you discover and experience choices beyond suffering. One thought at a time, you transform the way you experience your life.

This tool can set you free. Experience it for yourSELF. Peace or Pain? You decide!
