Unity Prayer - Class
with Cheryl Fare, Licensed Unity Teacher
Start off your new year by exploring the powerful and inspiring aspects of Unity's affirmative prayer method!
Affirmative meditative prayer is at the heart of the Unity spiritual path. The Unity way of prayer is ultimately aimed at experience of the Divine and Realization of the practitioner’s Divine Potential. Along the way there are practical benefits, including guidance, healing and abundance. In this course, students are introduced to Unity’s Five Step Prayer Process and supported in developing their daily prayer practice.
This class will be a great refresher for those who have been in Unity for some time, a spiritual game-changer for those who are new to Unity, and a meaningful exploration for those considering becoming Prayer Chaplains.

Conversation Skills is a course that enhances effective communication skills to include the ability to
stay in dialogue when emotions are driving us to “shout out” or “shut down.” This course provides
knowledge and tools for listening, creating connection and facilitating dialogue in tough, emotional
situations. The principles and models taught are aligned with spiritual practices. The class
is based on the model of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), which includes: taking responsibility for our
own experience; commitment to increasing our awareness of our own feelings and needs as well
as those of the people with whom we interact; and having the capacity to be authentic and
compassionate in all circumstances.
This course is available for optional Spiritual Education & Enrichment (SEE) credit through Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute (UWSI). Students taking the course for credit will register for SPD 112 Conversation Skills through UWSI at https://www.unityworldwideministries.org/uwsi

The Language of God - Metagetics & The Bible
with Reverend Laura Barrett Bennett
Metagetics is a revolutionary approach to scriptural interpretation. The opportunity to create a new world from an ancient text. “What if a new relationship with the Bible could be formed for you, the freethinking individual with an open heart and discerning mind? What if this relationship connected heart and mind to immerse you in the mystical experience and mindful interpretation that leads to masterful living? What if it liberated you from the limitations of the past through the revelation of a fresh outlook on the present, and a new possibility for the future? In its application to the Bible, metagetics reaches into the writings and stories from ages of human struggle, evolution, and wisdom to draw forth the spiritual teachings that are as powerful and pertinent today as they were several millennia ago. It then shapes these teachings into language and practices that not only work for your life, but also have the potential to uplift all of humankind.
