featured workshops

Waking Up, In Community - using the Enneagram as a map for community-based spiritual awakening

Join Rev. Nhien, J.D. to explore how the ancient tool of sacred psychology known as the Enneagram, when coupled with spiritual practice in small-group settings, can further our psychological growth and spiritual awakening. In this 2-part workshop, we’ll begin by learning about the nine personality types mapped by the Enneagram and we’ll explore how contemplative practices can support each of us in shifting from personality to individuality. 

Prayer to Action: A Unity model for engaging conscious social action

Join Rev. Jacquie Fernandez for a conversation as she presents a ministry model and workbook for leading congregations in a process of taking the ideals of love, equality, inclusion, and peace from the realm of consciousness to the realm of expression. The workbook is designed to process barriers, strengths, passions, and intentions to create a unique and practical plan of spiritual action.

Creative I AM - an Interactive Arts Ministry Experience

Join Rev. Jeniffer Hutchins for an interactive workshop held in the Unity Arts Ministry studio at Unity Village. Explore the benefits of adding expressive arts activities to your spiritual practice.
