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 p eace 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.

Evolutionary Enlightenment • 7:15 PM - 9:00 PM

This is not your standard spiritual book. It is a clear, practical and empowering guidebook; a vehicle for the journey of enlightenment through person al evolution intertwined with that of the cosmos. We see how we are the cosmos come alive; its way of becoming. In Andrew Cohen’s writing we experience directly the living Eros of the divine, urging always toward transformation and ultimately toward evolution.
This class will be a very personal experience; an opportunity to make spiritual transformation real. Required text: "Evolutionary Enlightenment" by Andrew Cohen; available in the Unity In Marin bookstore. Read Part 1 before the first class.

Social Justice Group • 7:15 PM

Social Justice “The opposite of poverty is not wealth, it is justice.”
According to Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times: “Injustice is easy not to notice when it affects people different from ourselves; that helps explain the obliviousness of our own generation to inequity today. We need to wake up.” In an effort to deepen our knowledge of the problems in social justice we are planning a three week study of the book Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. Bryan’s book has been named one of the best books of the Year by the New York Times. This will be facilitated by Dick Wolgamott.

Modern Mystics: • 7:15 PM - 9:15 PM

Francis Bennett is a former Trappist Monk and Hospice Chaplain. In 2010, while in the middle of Mass, he experienced "a radical perceptual shift in co nsciousness," illuminating the awareness that the presence of God is at the heart of everything. Francis' beliefs evolved to a more inclusive mystical, non-dogmatic approach to Christianity - a following of Christ that embraces the diversity of all spiritual paths with deep heart, openness and reverence. His vision is informed by his love of the Western Christian mystics and further enriched and deepened by what he has learned from intensive work with Buddhist teachers.
