A Course in Miracles ~ Text focus • 7:15 PM - 8:45 PM

The focus of this class is the “Text” of A Course in Miracles. What It Says: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” The Course makes a fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal; between knowledge and perception. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of love or God. Truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. It can be unrecognized, but it cannot be changed. It applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real. It has no opposite; no beginning and no end. It merely is.

EXPRESSIONS – A Writers’ Workshop • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Join in the fun of expressing yourself! It’s a workshop, so even if you’ve never written a story or poem before, you’ll fit right in. You’ll get unique prompts and handouts, some editing ideas in a “no-pressure” environment, and because the workshop is in the morning, coffee is at the ready. Come and express those ideas you have inside; the world is waiting for them!
Bring a journal, notebook, or e-device, and get ready for a light-hearted, sometimes serious, always enlightening journey.
October 10, 17, 24, 31, Nov. 7, 14

The Unity In Marin Men's Fellowship Network • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Meets 2nd and last Tuesdays
Our vision for this group is:
To boldly discover and awaken the Sacred Masculine by living in truth, love and fellowship.
Our mission is

to provide a connection point and community support for the men of Unity In Marin,
to be a forum to dive deep into what it means to be a man of spirit in the 21st Century, and
to explore what it means to serve "Spirit, our community, and the world with love, joy, and a sense of adventure!"

Tonight's Discussion and dialogue: Awakening The New Masculine 
We are pleased to welcome Frank Krahl as guest leader this month. He will be leading the discussion, building on our work last month.
Frank was inspired to share Gary Stamper's work, Awakening The New Masculine: The Path of The Integral Warrior, which "points the way to the second wave of men's work with humor, intelligence, and the kind of compassion that holds men accountable-daring, insisting, and giving them the tools they need to step up to a new way of being men. You're going to awaken to the real possibility of becoming the man you've always known you could be, stepping into the truth of who you are in your fullness, cultivating potentials that have called to you, bringing your full presence and awareness to every moment for yourself, your loved ones, and the planet."
If you are familiar with Ken Wilber's Integral Theory work, or even if you are not, we are all sure to gain from Frank's presentation and small group dialogue.
We will also be discussing opportunities for further connection over the next year. Do you have a talent you'd like to express, or an offering you'd like to propose? We are a community that says "Yes!" So bring your open heart and best ideas!

Healing and Wholeness I and II • 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

This course is divided into two parts.  Healing and Wholeness I (weeks 1-5) will essentially work with "The Source of Healing".  Healing and Wholeness OK (weeks 6-10) will work with the "Consciousness" and "Practice of Healing".  All topics will be intertwined throughout the two classes.  
 
Both courses are based in the spiritual universal principles that support the expression of healing, health and Wholeness in student's minds, bodies and affairs.  Student's will work with Myrtle and Charles Fillmore's interpretation of healing and Wholeness, as well as historical and contemporary master teachers.  Such principles will be presented to support students in developing a practical understanding the Fillmore's theology as heart-centered metaphysics.
 
Required materials:
* How to Let God Help You by Myrtle Fillmore
*  Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters by Myrtle Fillmore
*  Christian Healing by Charles Fillmore
*  Jesus Christ Heals by Charles Fillmore

A Course in Miracles - Journey Beyond Words • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Want a daytime Spiritual class? If there is within you, a quiet longing for “another way” Journey Beyond Words, a companion to the Workbook guides us to the universal experience that we are one with God. It is where we find the willingness to challenge every belief we now hold and enter a world of freedom where the Love of God is all that exists.  I invite you to join us in our spiritual quest and respectfully look forward in sharing these classes with you.
 

Attitudinal Healing Group • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Caregiver support and includes those who experience stress due to illness, loss, aging, relationships, finances, loneliness and other challenging life conditions.  
We gather in a safe, loving and nurturing community.  
This is a listening group without advice, judgments, and is a practice of compassion for self and others.  
Based on ideas from psychiatrist and author, Dr. Jerry Jampolsky’s  Love Is Letting Go Of Fear  who created The Center For Attitudinal Healing in Tiburon in 1975.

Spiritual Economics by Eric Butterworth

Day Class: Nov. 1 -  Dec. 13 from 1:15 to 3:15 pm
Evening Class: Nov. 1 - Dec. 13 from 5:00 to 7:00pm
As we continue to study the principles in ‘You are the Placebo / Making Your Mind Matter’, which merges spirituality with science,  our Unity Principles are reinforced. In the upcoming Spiritual Economics class, we will heighten our consciousness of the laws of spiritual economics, affecting some real dramatic life changes. Per Eric Butterworth,”the word ‘prosperity’ comes from the Latin root which literally translates: ‘according to hope’ or ‘to go forward hopefully’. Thus, it is not so much a condition in life as it is an attitude toward life.” Wealth originally meant overall well- being, in all phases of life (health, relationships, positive mind-set, financial, etc).  Come join us and live the abundant life!
Begins on Nov. 1st and ends on Dec 13th from 1:15 to 3:15 pm. (we will be skipping Wed Nov 22nd due to Thanksgiving holiday).
Day class facilitated by Marya Merritt and Rogina Riguero.
Evening class facilitated by Linda Anderson Henry  prosperitycircles@gmail.com

Book Study Follow-Up • 7:15 PM - 9:00 PM

Each year after the book study, Rev. Pat Palmer offers the opportunity to discuss together any remaining questions or ideas which arose during the weeks of study and may need further discussion.  The Clearing Process, EFT with Michelle Ercolini, and perhaps other modalities will be offered. Participants from any of the book study groups are welcome to attend.
