Unity on the Bay

A positive path for spiritual living

Unity on the Bay is a diverse spiritual home that embraces and radiates unconditional love, acceptance, energy and healing.  At Unity, we believe that there is one power: God, the good, omnipotent, and that the awareness and connection with this power opens the manifest world to its highest and best good in every individual and the universe as a whole.  As this awareness becomes an intricate part of our lives, we begin to transform ourselves, our community and our world.

In this class you will build a personal altar with your own healing stones and learn shamanic energy practices that will help you deepen your connection with yourself and the divine.

Class structure:
Each class will begin by opening up Sacred Space, the mending of our energy field and an energy clearing with sage. Group discussion will interweave science, ancient medicine and our personal experiences. Each month we will focus on one of the chakras, doing a deep cleansing with healing stones and a shamanic journey to the Lower and/or Upper Realms to combust family imprints and heal deep wounds.

Munay-Ki rites - sacred transmissions of energies will connect you with the shamanic lineage, open up your third eye and protect your field.

Materials Needed: Eight stones (small size is fine) and a journal or notebook. Not required but your stones could match the color of each chakra: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Homework will be given along with handouts - so you can incorporate the practices into everyday.
