Silent Unity Retreat

Rev. Juan, our Associate Minister, has been invited to co-facilitate Silent Unity’s yearly retreat in 2019. We feel this is a great opportunity for our spiritual community to experience Unity Village, our movement’s headquarters and the birthplace of our philosophy. The grounds are beautiful and the energy is palpable.

We invite you to join us, including Rev. Chris, as we make our own pilgrimage to Silent Unity. Experience the history, the love and the connection.

About the Experience

Please join us April 25–28 for the 2019 Silent Unity Retreat. Be immersed in the uplifting power of our own healing nature. Through our exploration of our stories, we will heal. Through the deepened connection to prayer, we will be a healing presence.

Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, vice president of Unity Prayer and Practice, Rev. Juan del Hierro, associate minister at Unity on the Bay in Miami, Florida, and Joy Perrie, director of Silent Unity, will inspire and guide your experience and expression of true divine nature.

Retreat Guiding Prayer

God is love. I am an open-hearted, single-minded divine human aware of my oneness with God. My heart beats in harmony with divine love. In prayer, I tell myself the great story of how I heal when I realize oneness, the power of divine love. Through prayer, I practice healing one thought at a time. Healing the heart of me, I refresh and renew all aspects of my life.

As I heal, I tell the story of resilience and regeneration. I tell the story of grace and glory. I pray in appreciation of wholeness and well-being in the heart of me.
