The Autumn Seasons for 2014 at Unity of Riverside
I’d like to share with you what’s “brewing” and will be “on tap” on Sundays beginning this week (August 24th) and continuing through Christmas. Hope you’ll join us -- soon and often!
“Walking the Walk” -- A Four Part Series, Aug 24 through Sep 14th:
Based on the audio series of the same name by Pema Chodron, is our “Walking the Walk” series we’ll look at what it means to “be a genuine spiritual person”. Pema says that being genuine means being “down to earth, taking the ‘medicine’ of good [spiritual] teachings.”
She also says it means being fully engaged in life with “as attitude of kindness toward yourself and others.” Aren’t these powerful and practical ideas? Hopefully, as we drink them in, we’ll find them as soothing as a cool iced tea on a hot summer day. What could be better?
[If you’d like to purchase the audio, it’s currently being offered at a 40% discount by Sounds True. To place an order, go to http://www.soundstrue.com/news/RADIANT/?component=bab . Click on the “Walking the Walk” icon, add it to your cart, and enter the term “RADIANT” in the discount window.]
Polishing the Mirror - An Eight-Part Series, Sep 21 through Nov 9:
Polishing the Mirror is Ram Dass’ latest book. The words on the inside of the front flap of the hardcover describes it like this: “For those both familiar and new to Ram Dass' teachings, here is this vanguard spiritual explorer's complete guide for polishing the mirror of the soul, discovering who we are and why we are here, and reflecting fully the light of our true nature.”
What’s particularly powerful about this book, is the “polishing material” Ram Dass provides is replete with the wisdom teachings from virtually all of the world’s spiritual traditions. As we study it, we’ll be blessed with the opportunity to let our light shine in new ways -- buffing ourselves with the richness of the ages.
The book is available on-line from such vendors as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com for about $13 in the paperback edition.
“Harvest Time” and “Thanksgiving” - Nov 16 and Nov 23
Let’s take the time to reflect on our journey together -- and to be in gratitude as we celebrate the richness of it.
“Advent Consciousness” - A Four Part Series, Nov 30 through Dec 21
While the specifics of this series are yet to be revealed, we know that being fully present to that which is being called forth from within is what the Advent Season is all about. Perhaps we’ll focus on our weekly welcoming message: “Welcome to Unity of Riverside - where Love is felt, Truth is taught, Lives are transformed, and Miracles happen.” Seems to me that there’s a Christmas message in those words! Let me know if you have other ideas.
See you in the Celebration Place!
