Two Oneness Courses Available!
 Introduction to Oneness: An Evening of Bliss and Exploration of Oneness

7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 10

with Oneness trainer, Angela Reed


The Oneness blessing is a form of Divine grace. Receiving the Oneness blessing begins a process whereby the mind is "de-clutched" and one can experience life as it truly is, without the commentary or judgmental influence of our thoughts, conditioning and fears. During this time many recipients report deep states of joy, love, freedom and bliss - for no reason at all. It is simply the grace of Divine Presence moving more fully into our lives. It can facilitate deep emotional and physical healing. Join Oneness trOnenessainer, Angela Reed for an evening of sharing the Oneness blessing, meditation, and an in depth discussion about Oneness!


Suggested love offering: $10

Daring GreatlyThis fall we will be coming together on an adventure in faith that will take us deeper and call us higher.

During this powerful and transformative time in our community's journey we will be given an opportunity to support each other in discovering and expressing our true selves as we study the book Daring Greatly by Brené Brown.


Our theme will be "Daring to Live the Empowered Life" and we will be sharing more details on the empowered living circles and celebration event as the time draws closer.
