Navigating Grief in Turbulent Situations

A group experience with Reverend Lisa Marks

We are always grieving something: loss of a loved one, loss of a beloved pet, loss of a job, moving, loss of our youth, and now loss of the "normal" life that we've always known. Will there ever be "normal" again or is it time for a "new normal"? How do we navigate these waters? How do we become ok with "what is"? How do we know we are not alone in the way we feel?

Through this group, we will investigate and share, and help one another establish a "new normal" while being in the company of those with similar experiences. There is definite power in acknowledging that we can't do it alone, and that we need assistance along the way. There is definite power in the energy of a group. This is the perfect time to join a group, while we are coming to terms with life amid a pandemic. Come learn some tools and techniques to handle your grief and feel better about your life.

Confidentiality is the cornerstone of this group, so that all those attending feel safe to share and know that what is said is held sacred.

Metaphysics 1 – Class

with Cheryl Fare, MFA/Licensed Unity Teacher

The first phase for truly understanding Unity is learning the fundamental Principles. Assimilating and practicing those Principles helps us awaken awareness and understanding of spiritual Truth. This “first phase” course encourages students to enter into that awakening and understanding so that they can apply the principles in their everyday lives and experience the “first fruits” of spiritual understanding.

BOOKS: Required text: Heart Centered Metaphysics by Paul Hasselbeck; Recommended Workbook: Applying Heart Centered Metaphysics by Paul Hasselbeck and Cher Holton.
