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.
Facilitated by Rita Johnson

Expressions, the Writers’ Workshop • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

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

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!

Heart Centered Metaphysics – 1.2 • 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Metaphysics explores beliefs and concepts that are above and beyond the physical plane. In Unity, metaphysics is considered synonymous with theology; thus the study of Unity metaphysics is the study of Unity theology. Heart Centered Metaphysics explores Ultimate Reality through the lens of the heart insuring in each of us that these beliefs represent more than cold, hard facts. It is our belief that the compassionate application and practice of heart-centered metaphysics is central to realizing a loving and peace-filled life and world. These concepts include:

We deeply realize the underlying unity and Oneness of all.
We know and understand the Principles of Ultimate Reality no matter what we choose to call it – God, Spirit, Light, etc.
We compassionately and lovingly apply and practice these Principles in our own lives.
We compassionately and lovingly see each person in the highest and best light.
When invited, we are able to quietly and humbly assist other people in understanding and applying these Principles in their own lives.

Please join us as we explore the deepest meaning of our lives and the underlying unity and Oneness of all.
