January 3rd   –  Annual Burning Bowl Ceremony and Dream Mapping

2020 is now behind us.  I don’t know anyone who imagined it would unfold as it did. Now is the perfect time to release all lingering, limiting beliefs and behaviors.  The “Burning Bowl Ceremony” is profoundly effective at freeing us from past entanglements to clear the way for greater experiences of Life.  You are invited to open to Spirit – to be Divinely Guided to your next “best yet to be,” using the creative process called “Dream Mapping” which reveals the grand opportunities that lie ahead.  Spirit is calling!  Are you ready to utter a resounding “Yes!”?

 

January 10th – “Prospering Through Faith” with Dianne Stewart Hamlin

Life provides us with a series of opportunities to live, to grow, to prosper because the Universe is generous and does not have favorites. Our choices yield our results as we continuously create the life that we desire.  We choose consciously or  unconsciously.   When we do not actively engage, there is still an outcome. Either way, the results of our choices are what we get to live on a daily basis. This is a daunting concept for many as it puts the state of our lives squarely in our hands. We become aware of the fact that it is up to us, not the economy, our exes, our currents, our boss, our families, or anyone else, it is simply, completely, and totally up to us. When we accept this truth we can then begin to truly live our lives fully, wholly, and completely. When we choose, we are actively engaged in the unfolding of our lives. To choose is to have faith that the Divine is continuously providing for you. It is within the choice where you begin to prosper and truly live the lives that we desire.

 

January 17th – “Are You Willing to Surrender Control?” with Rev Trish

“The Divine Mind is Infinite. It contains all knowledge and wisdom, but, before It can reveal Its secrets, It must have an outlet.” We are the outlet. All the wisdom of the world is within us. As we look around in present time, we might see we haven’t been good caretakers of this amazing thing called Life. It is time to stop trying to control ourselves and everything and everyone in our lives.  Stop for a moment.  Drink in how wonderful it is that there is That Within Us that is ready and willing to do the work!

 

January 24th  – “Dealing with What Is!” with Rev Trish

Self-awareness is the practice of being conscious of one’s motivations, internal dialogue, and hidden beliefs. It is a willingness to observe and take responsibility for our choices. “Spiritual bypass” (a term introduced by John Welwood) is a “tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks.” Some people think they can get away with bypassing their emotions by spouting spiritual phrases.  It doesn’t work that way.  Denying the healthy processing of emotions can be harmful.  Dr Holmes taught, “In the Science of Mind we do not say everything is all right when it is all wrong.”  Quite the contrary, he insisted that we address what is and use spiritual principles to bring about change.

 

January 31st “The Mystic’s Good: How to Use It” with Rev Martha Quintana

Ernest Holmes’ Science of Mind is a primer on everyday mysticism.  In Part IV, “How to Use It,” we learn how to use this Power that is equally accessible to each of us.  The same Power that created the Universe is the same One that created us. The only mystery is knowing how to fully utilize this amazing resource. Join Rev. Martha Quintana on Sunday as we remember how to use the Mystic’s Good.
