Painting the future and shifts in consciousness at Unity
Many West Shore residents have come to know and love Unity Spiritual Center through many different avenues. It might be through yoga, meditation, reiki, and fantastic speakers on many different topics. It might be through the Spiritual Cinema which will have its last movie for 2012 on Friday, Nov. 16, from 7-9 p.m. This month it is "Painting the Future" which reveals how the thoughts we choose create the life we live. The film is based on the teachings of Louise Hay and explores the power of positive thinking in healing past struggles and learning to live joyfully and heart-centered. This movie is truly inter-generational with a nine-year-old young lady stealing your heart away.
Join us for the Nov. 16 film by registering at www.unityspiritualcenter.com, or calling 440-835-0400 or showing up at 7 p.m. that evening for popcorn, the movie, and a discussion group with healthy snacks from Nature's Bin. And it is still only $10 per person.
Others may know about Unity Spiritual Center through its affiliate program Centered Wellness, an affiliation of transformative practitioners in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational and environmental concerns. The collective goal of all of the practitioners is to help individuals in their personal transformational journeys. There are opportunities to attend many different programs through Centered Wellness throughout the year whether it be yoga, nutrition, financial wellness, mental health, naturopathy or life transformation.
There are opportunities for practitioners in the wellness arena to learn about the benefits of becoming a Centered Wellness affiliate by visiting www.centeredwellness.org. It is a unique program that holds promise for both affiliates and program attendees.
One of the Centered Wellness programs of great interest in December is a celebration of consciousness, spiritual evolution, food, drink, dancing and family fun – A-Shift'n & A-Swing'n Meet Ball! In open house style, beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22, with appetizers and a cash bar paired with socializing and kids activities as well as spiritual and metaphysical conversation, followed by a spaghetti (vegan or meatball style) dinner. The evening will continue until 10 p.m. with activities for the whole family including swing dance lessons. Admission is free but it is a cash bar and there is a $10 charge per person for dinner, but kids under 11 eat free! It is a great way to celebrate family-style! Please register at www.centeredwellness.org so that there is plenty of food for all. If you have questions, please call 216-228-0537.
Unity Spiritual Center will also have a Christmas concert and traditional Christmas Eve service among other programs throughout the month of December. The details will be coming in the Nov. 27 issue of the Observer. As always, Unity Spiritual Center, located at 23855 Detroit Rd. in Westlake, is a resource for the whole West Shore community. Visit our spacious campus which includes a beautiful labyrinth and meditation garden.
Oh, and by the way, we now have a paper recycling container on site west of the parking lot and east of the labyrinth where you are welcome to recycle your paper and flattened cardboard.
