Breaking Down the Ten Commandments: The Ninth Commandment
Followed by a CommUnity Meeting
Guest Speaker Rev. Fran Polacco
Guest Speaker Rev. Rachel Sue Ritz
A Workshop with Author Lo Anne Mayer
Saturday, May 12th - 10 AM - 4 PM
One morning Lo Anne Mayer wrote a letter to her mother, who had died a year earlier. Despondent over the strained relationship they had endured in life, she started the journal because she still longed for healing. So began a remarkable soul-to-soul correspondence that restored their bond. When her own daughter died, Mayer started a new journal that soothed her grief. Now she shares her story and simple technique with bereaved people everywhere.
This workshop focuses on teaching the participants how to use transpersonal journaling to heal unfinished business with loved-ones who have died. Prayer, meditation and journaling allow each person to focus on what they need to release their own barriers to forgiveness that might be holding them back from living life more fully.
Unity Spiritual Center will be collecting new Teddy Bears for patients at Hunterdon Medical Center's Memory Care and Pediatric Units. Drop off bears between now andSunday, April 22nd. Each Sunday we will hold the bears on our laps and infuse them with loving energy before they are delivered to their new owners. Thank you in advance for participating!
