Eat, pray, love, dance and celebrate life at Unity
From dancing to eating to walking the outdoor labyrinth, Unity Hall and Unity Spiritual Center will be full of activities in April and May. Unity is a place where people of all faiths and belief systems can celebrate the joy of living.
Learn to Contra Dance on Friday, April 29. Contra dancing is old-fashioned fun for everyone. As the precursor to the Virginia Reel, it’s group dancing that’s both good exercise and great fun.
Live music by “Mud in Yer Eye,” a wonderful band featuring hammered dulcimers, violins, guitar, banjos and much more, will make for a lively evening. Tickets are $8 and kids under 12 are free. Even if you don’t want to dance, just come to watch the crowd!
Easter at Unity is always deeply inspirational. This year’s theme, “Rise Up in Majesty” will include Unity’s traditional flower ceremony which will take your breath away. Services are at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on April 24. Plus, the Easter Bunny will be present after the 11 a.m. service.
On May 8, a Mother’s Day Brunch will be a treat for everyone at Unity Hall from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The exquisite new Unity Hall will be a relaxing atmosphere with a great variety of food and a chocolate fountain. Enjoy the brunch and then walk off your calories on Unity’s 90-foot outdoor labyrinth. Children under 12 eat free, families of three or more can brunch for $10 each. One adult is $15 or two for $25. Call 440-835-0400 to reserve your tickets.
Mother’s Day services on May 8 at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. will include a play about one of the co-founders of Unity, Myrtle Fillmore. Unity’s wealth of positive, practical spiritual principles for life will be revealed in this play about a remarkable woman who was supposed to die of tuberculosis but refused to accept the idea that she inherited illness.
With spring here at last, Unity’s outdoor labyrinth is free for all who wish to do a walking meditation. Among the trees, with birds singing, walking the labyrinth is a way to feed your soul.
Unity Hall and Unity Spiritual Center are a community resource that many people do not realize are available because they’re hidden atop a hill at 23855 Detroit Road. Unity is non-denominational and warmly welcoming to all. Find out more about it at www.unityspiritualcenter.com.
