ENERGETIC CORDING

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 7 - 9 PM

Energetic cording is something everybody does, sometimes intentional and sometimes not. It is the feeling of being connected to someone or drained by them. In this class you will learn what exactly energetic cording is, which ones are healthy and which ones cause imbalance and need to be released. You will also learn how to disconnect or decord energy, and heal as to not have it happen again. An exercise will be provided at the end of class to experience decording.

Class given by Lily McNamara a psychic/Medium that has been a Spiritual Counselor for 14 years. Her passion is to help people on their sacred path. She is a certified energy worker as well as trained in guided meditation, life coaching, counseling and is an ordained minister.

What is Unity? Inquiry and Membership Class

There are many paths to Oneness with God, and those paths continue to evolve as mankind evolves in spiritual understanding. Knowing this, Unity does not present itself as proprietor of the one and only Absolute Truth, therefore it is not the goal of the course to tell you what or how to believe. Rather, Unity ideas provide a format of exploration and inquiry into spiritual ideas.

Join us for a five week exploration of the 5 basic Unity principles. Discover how they can transform your view of God, of yourself, and of life.  See and experience how these core ideas can empower you to change your life experiences should you choose to adopt them.

We’ll also take a look at the history of the New Thought Movement of which Unity is a part.  We’ll learn how Unity came into being, and how our own Unity of the Valley Center evolved.  At the conclusion of the class you will have the option to decide about formalizing your association with Unity of the Valley by becoming a member.

Our exploration of Unity begins on Sunday, October 1st and runs for 5 consecutive Sundays.  Each class will be from 11:45 – 1:00 pm, and given on a love offering basis.
Please pick up the book The Five Principles by Ellen Debenport in our bookstore, and read Principle I before the first class.  Rev. Laurie will facilitate the class.

We currently have the following classes or groups that fit this category and hence are not on the calendar: A Course in Miracles (ACIM), a year-long study group; A Course of Love (ACOL), the length of which varies depending on the group but could be a year; and women's and men's Master Mind groups (ongoing).

If you're interested in one of these courses or groups, you may call the Center at 952-895-0745 and leave your name and email and interest(s) and we will contact you if the course or class is repeated or the group opens up. Anyone is free to start a new Master Mind group or a new study group of ACIM or ACOL if they wish to promote and facilitate it.
