Prayer can be a trigger word from painful past experiences, yet is a resource to accessing unimagined potential and guidance. Affirmative meditative prayer is at the heart of Unity and a way to reclaim the word prayer and the potential it promises. Prayer is ultimately aimed at experience of the Divine and Realization of the practitioner’s Divine Potential in Unity teachings. 

Along the way there are practical benefits, including guidance, healing and abundance. In this course, practitioners are introduced to Unity’s 5-Step Prayer Process and supported in developing their daily prayer practice in a new and unique way. Live music, fun and fellowship mixed into a deepening invitation to your own understanding.

Mindfulness practices can be a powerful source of refuge while managing the challenges of modern-day parenting.

The intention and invitation of the Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support group is to offer a space for parents, grandparents, child care providers and educators to explore a fuller knowing of themselves and their deepest needs while honoring the sovereignty of the children they care about.

This group meets the fourth Thursday of the month.

Suggested Love Offering: $15 per class.

Engaging Mindfulness Meditation Practice Group, Saturday, November 10, 2018, 9:30am - 12:30pm, Classroom C. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. Not “social dialogue” where you may or may not click with the person(s) you speak with, or you might want to have the right thing to say. Meditative dialogue: Between silent meditation and the speed we move and speak of our every day world is a place we can practice meditative dialogue. Meditative dialogue might be explained as a grounded awareness where we can practice using speech, yet what we actually say isn’t important.  What is important is our awareness, what we noticed, what we chose to speak and what we didn’t.  This dialogue has nothing to do with a story we have been telling our friends.  Each moment may be different.  It is about experience.

As the listener, we practice bringing ourselves back to awareness and listening without an agenda.  We are so used to listening to offer advice, reassurance, empathy, teaching, etc…these are all agendas. Listening is one of the greatest gifts we can offer another person, and we cannot fully listen with and agenda. What I have noticed after being in dialogue with others is a comfortable closeness even if I don’t know much about them and after practicing dialogue in a monthly group, I remember again how I want to listen more closely, and how I want to slow down and connect with myself and others while I am speaking.

As with most groups, we practice silent meditation, have a dharma topic, and have time as a group to debrief and ask questions.

If you have any questions feel free to call Lori @ 816-516-2200. Lori is a meditation student, Unity Minister, Nonviolent Communication Trainer, and supports others on their journeys. This group meets monthly on the 2nd Saturday.

All meditation levels welcome. No prior experience necessary. Come experience connection as part of your meditation experience.
