  Suggestions For Your Spiritual Practice:

Unity Founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore:
"God is the one perfect life flowing through us. God is the one pure substance out of which our organism is formed. God is the only reality of us; all else is but a shadow that is cast by some foolish belief or unwise combination of thoughts and the elements of being. When we let light flood us with its sunshine, all clouds vanish and we begin to see ourselves in new ways of doing, which lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and growth." Myrtle Fillmore (1895)

December 7th, 7:00 pm, by donation with Henri van Amerongen,
Talk Title:  The Power of Love

'Hate connects and love liberates' (Bert Hellinger)
Henri van Amerongen moved to Canada from Holland 10 years ago and is a Family Constellation Facilitator, Trainer, Counselor and (past life) Regression therapist.  He combined (European) proven methods to develop his own techniques to give you insight into what is blocking you from creating a more fulfilling life.
Why is it so difficult for a lot of people to receive or give love? Don't we all have a deep longing for recognition, love, and security?  From whom do you still want or expect love?  What do you still want to hear, or still need from your parents? But what if you don't get on a deep subconscious level what you are longing for?  What is blocking you to receive or give love?  Check out our website for more information on Henri and his talk.
