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 n ew ways of doin g, whic h lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and grow th." Myrtle Fillmore ( 1895)

Metaphysical Network Presents: Dawn Turner, on Thursday, October 18th

Metaphysical Network Presents: Dawn Turner, Talk Title: CE-5 Nanaimo - Making peaceful contact with ETs onThursday, October 18, 2018, 7:00pm  "I am a 50+ (okay, closer to 60) Canadian business woman who lives and works in Nanaimo, British Columbia.  One of my main hobbies is collecting data that seems to support the existence of a particular ancient civilization.
Recently, I have grown extremely interested in the SIRIUS Disclosure Project. I have completed two weeks of CE-5 training with Dr. Steven Greer and have started a local group called CE-5 Nanaimo. http://ce5-nanaimo.com/  CE-5 is the abbreviation of the term "Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind." It means, in short, human-initiated contact with extraterrestrial life forms (ETs).  Over the past 25+ years, Dr. Greer has been developing and refining CE-5 protocols that work. He is training others to use these tools and challenging us to go out and train still more people.  My plan is to start educating Vancouver Islanders in the protocols, but also teach why we are doing this work and how it may offer hope for our future.  For me, the journey started when I had a series of sightings as a teen, one of which was particularly memorable in that there seemed to be some form of communication going on between me and the craft. I always wondered why "they" would have come to see me of all people. But life goes on and the decades pass. You get a job, you raise children, and then one day grandchildren come along.  That's how it was for me - until I stumbled upon the movie Unacknowledged one day and all the pieces of my life seemed to fall into place. I knew that I suddenly had a new purpose and I dedicated my remaining years to it.
In May 2018 I joined Dr. Greer and about 25 others for a week-long ET-contact and CE-5 training session in Arizona. Then in July 2018 I again joined Dr. Greer and 20 or so others for advanced training at Mt. Shasta. It was incredible! I learned a lot and met some amazing people who are passionate about CE-5. And now I want to share what I have learned with Nanaimo and area residents so that we can spread a word of hope to others."

3 Breath Merkabah Activation Workshop Oct 20   

3 Breath Merkabah Activation Workshop part 1, with Carol Lefevre Saturday, October 20, 2018, 10:00   bring a lunch
A Merkabah is an amazing liquid light body energy field extending over 50 feet around a person's body. The Merkabah is a living energy field. It is you and you are it. It is created using a special sequence of coordinated breaths and visualizations. This has been a secret, closely guarded by the adepts and masters, only recently made available to those seeking transformation, enlightenment and ascension. The use of a Merkabah opens us considerably to other dimensions and is a sign of spiritual development.
The workshop includes the instructions and practice of all phases of The Melchizedek Method Activation and how to multi-dimensional travel.
This workshop is required in order to take the Holographic Healing module which will be coming up January 26th. 
Check out our website for more information on Carol or visit her at:
Contact the Unity office or sign up on the information wall to reserve your spot.  If you'd like to pay by credit card, you must prepay by calling or texting Carol contact the office for more information.

Amy Bishop Concert, November 3rd  

click on pic
Amy Bishop Back November 3rd
 
More than a half a million people watched Amy Bishop as a finalist on CTV's "The Launch" and her voice was compared with those of Barbra Streisand, Carol King and Faith Hill.

This is the knockout singer-songwriter who made Scott Borchetta cry with her version of "Hallelujah" and producer Dan Huff comment that she is a "record-producer's dream" and with producer Dann Dunn saying, "She's among the top two percentile of female vocalists in the world! 
 
Amy's vibe is Pop-Rock-Gospel-Blues and just about anything else. She can be smooth, she can be gravelly, she can exude love and she can blow the roof off! One night only.
Amy has sung for us before and we are very excited to have her back. She is Music Director at the Centre for Spiritual Living in Calgary.  
 
She filled this place up to the max the last time she was here. 
You don't want to miss this!

*
Tickets are available on Sunday for the Amy Bishop concert on Saturday November 3. They are priced at $25. Amy is a fabulous entertainer as well as an amazing singer.  You can also contact the office for your ticket.
You will have a lot of laughs and will be lifted up!
