We at Unity are open to many paths which lead to the Universal One or God.  We study the Bible metaphysically, and we have hosted Buddhist monks from the Sera Jey Monastery in India, Swami Sankarananda, and followers of KaHuna, the native Hawaiian religion.  We have ongoing classes on A Course in Miracles and Science of Being, led by Rudolf Steiner students Renée and Burt Lattimore. We frequently reference Buddhism, Hinduism, the Sufis, and Gurdjieff, and we will be starting a Yogananda Sunday school class soon, all in an effort to access Christ Consciousness. Most importantly, we endeavor to let that Consciousness guide our daily lives. We want to “walk the talk” and be that which we study, as Unity co-founder and mystic Charles Fillmore succeeded in doing.

We are a center of practical spirituality; thus, we enrich our lives through books, music, and healthy lifestyle choices, reinforcing the fact that all beings are one with each other and with the Divine. We believe that this divine connection and perfection can and should pervade our lives. We want to connect the dots between the intellectual, spiritual teachings and our daily endeavors.

We are a very open-minded family of spiritual seekers, and we invite others to explore these spiritual ideas with us.
