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!

The quality of our health is in direct correlation with the quality of our breath. In this 2-session class, we will tap into deep, restorative breathing, connecting to the energy and vibrancy of the sun and moon, and celebrating the energy they bring us.

By tuning into your breathing, you can elongate your inhales and exhales and breathe more deeply. This brings in more oxygen, lowers your resting heart rate, and relaxes your nervous system. Focusing on the breath can also help you disengage from distracting thoughts and sensations, thus calming the mind. Join us and discover how to tap into the breath’s vital energy for body and mind.

Dive into Unity's teachings. In this inspirational classic, Eric Butterworth sees the divine within us all to be a hidden and untapped resource of limitless abundance. Exploring this "depth potential," Butterworth outlines ways in which we can release the power locked within us and let our "light shine."

Dates: Wednesdays, 6/17 - 7/22
Time: 6:30 - 7:30 pm
Cost: Love Offering

Join me in a weekly discussion group around Sharon's book, The Force of Kindness. It may seem cliche to say that kindness is needed now more than ever, but kindness can be an anchor for us in our current experience. It can guide us in consciously choosing how we move through a time of heightened uncertainty and a new normal that calls for flexibility and inner stability. Kindness can be our normal...whatever comes our way. Tapping into loving-kindness for self, for others is a powerful tool to transform how we see and relate to the world around us.

Braving Forgiveness

Online

With: Rev. John Riley
Cost: Love Offering
Dates: Thursdays, 7/30-9/3 (skipping 8/13) @ 7:00-8:30 pm PDT

One of the most courageous spiritual practices, and one of the most rewarding, is the practice of forgiveness. Genuine forgiveness is not a casual act and not superficial work. It is an ongoing giving up the clinging to something and reclaiming our inner power as spiritual beings. This class uses the BRAVING paradigm that Brene' Brown developed based on years of data on trusting relationships, and applies it to internal forgiveness work. Watch Brene' SuperSoul Session at https://brenebrown.com/videos/anatomy-trust-video/ for an introduction to the BRAVING paradigm.
