The 12 Powers with Sandra Tagle, Licensed Unity Teacher (On-line Class)
Saturdays, March 9 - 26 at 10am EST to 12pm EST (2 hours)
As a result of his inner exploration and experiences, as well as his metaphysical interpretation of the Bible, Charles Fillmore developed a powerful tool for spiritual development and healing commonly known as “the twelve powers.” The teaching and practice of the 12 powers includes awareness of “power centers” in the body, similar to the “chakra” system in yoga. The system connects the power centers to spiritual qualities symbolically associated with the 12 Disciples of Christ; the Christ is symbolically associated with the Spiritual or Higher Self. Students will explore and experientially apply the 12 power system as a way of realizing and releasing their inner divinity.
Overview of Hebrew Scriptures with Rev. Juan, Associate Minister
Tuesdays, April 9 – April 30 @ 6:30 – 8:30 pm
The Hebrew Scriptures (known as the “Old Testament” in the Christian world) are at the root of three major world religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Hebrew Scriptures are a collection of fascinating and sometimes confusing stories, poetry, wisdom sayings and inspired visions. While some stories in Hebrew Scriptures are little known outside scholarly circles, others have become commonplace in conversation, e.g. “David vs. Goliath.” Students will explore the history and development of Hebrew Scriptures, thereby acquiring a solid foundation for continuing study and exploration.
Prosperity with Sandra Tagle, Licensed Unity Teacher
Thursdays, May 30 – June 27 @ 6:30 – 8:30 pm
This advanced course examines the prosperity teachings of Charles Fillmore and Eric Butterworth, as well as contemporary teachings. Students explore the broader meaning of prosperity beyond “material things” to discover their own beliefs about money, abundance and lack. Students create practices for healing limitations they hold about prosperity, and discover ways to address their own unexamined, unconscious assumptions about abundance, giving and generosity.
Bible Interpretation: Hebrew Scriptures with Rev. Juan, Associate Minister
Thursdays, August 8 – 29 @ 7 – 9 pm
Hebrew Scriptures Beneath the literal sense of the Bible, interpreters have for over 2,000 years discerned allegorical meanings related to divine truths and spiritual realities. Unity’s approach to scripture is connected to that stream of thought, which has at times been “mainstream” but more often “esoteric” and mystical. Students will experience the rewarding and surprisingly practical process of the Unity way of Bible interpretation. They will learn a step-by-step method for metaphysical interpretation and application of the meanings to their lives. Students will metaphysically interpret selected passages from Hebrew Scriptures.
Metaphysics 4 with Rev. Chris, Senior Minister
Date TBD (September/October)
The fourth phase in metaphysical study is continuing investigation and application of the Truth students have learned in the previous metaphysical courses. This course summarizes and organizes metaphysical teachings to facilitate ever increasing demonstration of Truth. Through the consistent application of practical Truth principles, students will consciously transform their lives and realize more of their spiritual nature and potential. Required Prerequisite: HTS 105 Metaphysics 1 Recommended Prerequisite: HTS 110 Metaphysics 2 & HTS 115 Metaphysics 3
History of the New Thought Movement with Rev. Chris, Senior Minister
Date TBD (October/November)
Just as one’s previous life experiences underlie one’s current expression, so the history of a tradition underlies that tradition’s current expression. The foundations of Unity as a contemporary movement are explored in its roots in Transcendentalism, Christian Science and New Thought. Students explore Unity’s history and original cultural milieu. They have the opportunity to consider the possibilities of Unity as an evolving cultural phenomenon. This historical exploration includes exposure to ideas, beliefs and philosophies of the main “architects” of this stream of spiritual thought that in some ways has connections back to antiquity. (Combines three former classes: History of New Thought, Background of New Thought and Development of the Unity Movement)
