ESTER NICHOLSON SPEAKING ON MAY 19th

We are pleased to welcome Ester Nicholson to UOC for the first time. Her talk title is "The Roadmap Home to Your Authentic Self".

Your authentic identity is one of empowerment, confidence, safety, and worthiness. It is steeped in the spiritual reality of being more than enough. Yet all too often, the magnificent and complete idea of who you really are is hidden from your conscious awareness.

ESTER NICHOLSON WORKSHOP ON MAY 19TH

How many of us are caught up dealing with our dependencies of past challenges that created feelings of unworthiness and unhealed trauma?

She will guide you through a powerful process of healing unconscious core wounds that have blocked you from becoming your highest and authentic self. You will walk away with feelings of empowerment, confidence, relief from anxieties, and a positive new hope about your life. Cost is $25.

You will come away from the workshop with: 
1. Confidence
2. Feelings of Empowerment 
3. Release and Relief and Peace

Ester is the daughter of a Baptist minister, today is a renowned powerful speaker, vocalist, former addict, teacher, and author of Soul Recovery - 12 Keys to Healing Dependence. She realized that her own healing called her to: A mission worth living for. Out of that came Soul Recovery, a process that Ms. Nicholson developed to heal herself of a life-threatening addiction unifying the 12 Steps of Recovery with universally accepted spiritual practices. She has guided thousands to their recovery and higher purpose.

Christ Conscience

KELLY THOMPSON IS SPEAKING ON MAY 26TH

Kelly is a seeker of truth and has been drawn to the teachings of New Thought. Join him on Sunday, May27th at 10:30 am, as he explores "What is Christ Consciousness". While New Thought honors Jesus Christ, it also takes a metaphysical look at it as the birth of Christ’s Consciousness within ourselves.

SpiritGroups

SpiritGroups at Unity of Chattanooga!

Throughout 2024, Unity of Chattanooga will be offering new Unity SpiritGroups for you to join. The groups are based on Unity books. Details on the next class will be available around Easter. Study materials and instructions are provided, but books have to be purchased separately if you choose. If you are interested in joining a SpiritGroup, please send an email to contact@unityofchattanooga.org

Unity SpiritGroups is a small group program available through Unity Worldwide Ministries.  Phaedra Roberts, UWM Certified SpiritGroups Program Leader, says that these groups are made up of 2 to 12 people participating in a cohesive, strategic program that is designed to carry out the mission of our spiritual community.  Groups meet once a week for 10 weeks to experience healthy, spiritually balanced small group principles called “The Five C’s”. They are:    

Communion: SpiritGroup members grow through personal reflection, prayer and/or meditation time. Members begin each meeting with prayer or meditation and group members volunteer to take on the role of a prayer leader for the group.

Connection: SpiritGroup members cultivate fun and fulfilling relationships with each other. Group gatherings contribute to the development of meaningful relationships.

Compassion: All members of the group proactively seek to support and care for each other in times of joy and times of challenges.

Community: SpiritGroups enrich the community by choosing to serve together in ways that benefit the local, regional, and/or global community by participating in one community service project together.

Challenge: SpiritGroup members proactively apply what they are learning through their group gatherings. They encourage each other in their spiritual growth and provide non-judgmental support to help each other progress toward their intentions for spiritual growth.
