Annual Spiritual Q&A with Rev. John Riley and music by Deborah Winters and Russell Norman on live-stream at www.UnityPaloAlto.org/live

Do you have a spiritual question for Rev. John? You can ask it at www.UnityPaloAlto.org/question. He will answer as many questions as possible during the service.

Guidance is sometimes loud and bright, at other times muted and subtle; yet it’s always divine wisdom showing the way, step by step. I need not know the entire path—I simply trust and move forward with a positive expectation.

The Coronavirus as a Calling with Gregg Levoy

The Coronavirus as a Calling
with Gregg Levoy

Sunday, 6/28 @ 10:00 am

With guest speaker Gregg Levoy and music by Margo LeDuc and Russell Norman on live-stream at www.UnityPaloAlto.org/live

Whenever a vaccine finally shows up for the coronavirus, it will be based on the following wisdom (the bedrock of the science of immunology): we introduce a little chaos into the system in order to strengthen it, shake it up in order to help it evolve. This virtual “sermon” is an exploration of how your own life might grow and evolve as a result of the pandemic, and your response to it, what the “chaos” of the coronavirus is calling-for from you, whether creatively, professionally, interpersonally, or spiritually.

Gregg is also facilitating a workshop The Coronavirus as a Calling at 1:30 – 3:30 pm

That’s my story … and I’m willing to give it up! with guest speaker Lysa Allman-Baldwin

That’s my story … and I’m willing to give it up!
with guest speaker Lysa Allman-Baldwin

Sunday, 6/21 @ 10:00 am

With guest speaker Lysa Allman-Baldwin and music by Deborah Winters and Russell Norman on live-stream at www.UnityPaloAlto.org/live

We all have a story – a collection of experiences we’ve had in our lives.  Some of those experiences are positive, and some leave a lot to be desired.  Unfortunately, we often latch onto the challenging ones, making them the central narrative our subconscious mind uses to filter current and future events.  Come and hear Lysa Allman-Baldwin, a highly sought-after motivational speaker, travel and feature writer, and the author of the book I Cried.  And People Loved Me Anyway, as she shares how recognizing that narrative—and giving up what no longer serves us—is key to reaching a higher level of consciousness

Affirmation: I have the power to reframe my old stories and chart a new conscious path for the future.
