They have the opportunity to consider the possibilities of Unity as an evolving cultural phenomenon.

February 19th - February 23rd, 2018

This course is based on the spiritual laws and universal principles that support the expression of health and wholeness in our minds, bodies, and affairs. We will be working with Myrtle and Charles Fillmore’s interpretation of how Jesus used and demonstrated those in his own life. Such laws and principles will be presented to support participants in developing a practical understanding of Myrtle and Charles' theology as heart-centered metaphysicians. It is our expectation that through the development of such practical understanding, participants will be inspired to also become heart-centered metaphysicians. We also expect them to develop a “tool kit” for using healing principles in their daily lives and in supporting other people in their own healing process.

February 19th - February 23rd, 2018

$75

Self-awareness is necessary for optimal balance and functioning in life. To be self-aware is to realize the dimensions of self and the states of those dimensions. Human beings are more than physical body; they also have spiritual and soul (psyche) dimensions which are equally if not more important than the body. Students will explore the dimensions of self by studying various systems and techniques for self-awareness. They will become more conscious of: their attitudes, beliefs and ways of being; symptoms of stress and imbalance; healthy responses to stress and imbalance; and how to integrate spiritual principles to maintain balance and honor all facets of their being.

SCS120 "Jesus' Teachings" - Rev. Alice Anderson

February 19th - February 23rd, 2018

$75

Teachings about the Gospels have usually portrayed Jesus Christ as the “Great Exception” to being human. However, by focusing upon his sayings, we can see Jesus as the “Great Example” for Spiritual Awakening, Empowerment, and Transformation. By exploring the teachings of Jesus, rather than the teachings about Jesus, we can follow that example. Students will develop a deeper and more practical understanding of Jesus as Master Teacher and Way-shower through reflection upon his sayings and methods. In this way, they will learn to build a strong spiritual foundation for “Christ Consciousness.”

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.

February 19th - February 23rd, 2018

The Christian Scriptures have had, arguably, the most widespread influence on spirituality of any collection of writings in history.

Students will develop a basic understanding of the Christian Scriptures’ meaning for the people to whom they were written. This course is based on the premise that, whatever else the Christian Scriptures may be, they most definitely are the response of early Christian writers to both the person and the message of Jesus Christ. This course examines the Christian Scriptures as a testament about Jesus by early Christian communities.

SCS125 "The Christ" - Rev. John McLean

February 19th - February 23rd, 2018

$75

What is the significance of the word “Christ?” The idea of “the Christ” has various meanings in various spiritual traditions and even more meanings in the context of individual belief systems. For some, “Jesus” and “Christ” are synonymous, yet even so interpretations of “Jesus Christ” vary for those believers. “Christ,” as the Greek form of the Hebrew “Messiah,” has an entirely different meaning for Judaism. In metaphysical teachings, “Christ” signifies an innate Spiritual principle and/or potential in every person. Students will experientially engage their own beliefs about “Jesus Christ” and the Christ idea using the Bible as the primary text.
