Spiritual Economics:  “Can you accept Emerson’s dictum that you are born to be rich or inevitably grow rich by the use of your faculties?”  … Eric Butterworth

To be rich is to be plentiful and abundant. To prosper is not only to succeed in material terms – be financially successful, it is to flourish physically, mentally and spiritually … to grow strong and healthy.  We are not in this world to merely survive, we are here to thrive … to do right for oneself and others! In this course you will gain a greater understanding of the basic spiritual principles that influence the free flow of prosperity and learn to use them effectively every day in every area of life. This is a sensible, solution-oriented class.  There are no prerequisites for this course other than a strong desire to enhance your life … and that of others. Because we will be passing through the holiday season, our calendar will be stretched and flexed as needed due to weather and holidays.  Here is the tentative schedule which we will discuss and confirm when we gather on November 19thCourse Length:  8 sessions spread over at least 12 weeks due to holidays and weather

Practical Mysticism

The Practical Mysticism course provides the framework for the student to live the mystical life here and now.  Through the study of mysticism and daily spiritual practice, the student gains a broader perspective and deeper experience of his/her own personal way of living the mystical life.  The emphasis is on becoming a mystic rather than simply learning about the mystics. Thus, the student learns that the mystical life is eminently practical as s/he learns to be “in the world but not of it.” Each student consciously creates the environment in which to engage in this personal mystical journey by studying, practicing meditation, spiritual mind treatment and contribution, and by developing witness consciousness and practicing the Presence. The final project for this course is to prepare a report on the mystic of his/her choice that will be presented in class and shared in writing so that all expand their knowledge of the array of mystics among us throughout history.  This course is ideal for anyone seeking to deepen his/her own awareness of the Divine Reality of all life. The prerequisite for this course is Foundations or the equivalent with the permission of the instructor, Rev. TrishDate and Time:        To be announced
