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)

Animals come into our lives to teach us the lessons that we need to learn...are you listening?  Do you know how to listen?

Are you confused and do not know how to meet their needs?
Do you have a feeling that they are trying to tell you something?
Have you spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on vet bills with no results?  Do you want to know how to best help your pet?
Is your pet aging?  Would you like to know what they want in their final months, weeks, days?  Do you want to know your pets purpose?  Do you want to let them know how much you love them?

Then come for a 3 hour introduction to Animal Communication (animal mediumship) with The Dog Psychic Michele Jarvis-Wonnacott

Metaphysical Network Presents Robert Schwartz 

July 19th - Robert Schwartz, Talk Title: Awakening to Your Life Purpose, Discovering Your Life Plan by suggested donation of $7.00
Before we are born, each of us plans the circumstances, relationships, and major challenges we will experience in our upcoming lifetime. Would you like to discover your life plan - a plan you yourself created before you were born? Would you like to gain great insight into the spiritual meaning and purpose of the relationships and challenges in your life?  
Rob will discuss his own spiritual path and how he came to write books about pre-birth planning. He will explain the five main reasons why we ourselves plan before we're born to experience great challenges in life. He will then discuss in depth one or more of the stories in his books. This inspirational presentation will help you to understand the deeper spiritual purpose of your own life challenges and how you may heal negative feelings about them, transforming those feelings into acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and peace.
Robert Schwartz is a hypnotist and the author of the ground-breaking books Your Soul's Plan and Your Soul's Gift.

Concert with Joshua Holloway

Join Joshua Holloway and friends for a concert at Unity on Saturday July 21, 7:00p.m.   Tickets are $20 and all proceeds support Joshua's education in New York City!  Tickets will be available on Sunday.

"Moments in Time" draws you in to a colourful, musical story set over the past 10 years of music and theatre in Nanaimo.  Joshua invites you on a journey to celebrate and honor special people and moments that cultivated his desire to pursue the Performing Arts.  The concert weaves through key musical experiences and highlights influential teachers, with songs from early musicals to performances with the VIU Jazz Program and finally to his audition for Performing Arts school in New York City.  Audiences will be treated to original songs, stories, jazz standards, musical theatre hits, folk and pop songs that moulded Josh's artistic identity over the past decade. The show will feature duets and collaborations with fellow performers and dear friends he met along the way who supported him, pushed him out of his comfort zone, and taught him to think outside the box. 
New York bound, Joshua is chasing his wild dream: to make it to New York, and take on Broadway.  Proceeds will support accomplishing that dream.
