We offer a unique transformational spiritual development programs to enrich your individual evolution of consciousness. Central to our studies is the integration of spiritual traditions and practices from ancient wisdom to New Thought, to current modern day quantum physics. It is our goal to develop ground-breaking leaders who are committed first to their own spiritual transformation, then as leaders in their own communities, and ultimately as transformational leaders for the world.
We have posted suggested costs for our classes, but we have a policy that allows everyone—class size permitting—to attend classes, regardless of current ability to pay. We value your energy and joyfully accept the financial amount you are able to offer.

Prayer is the heart of Unity. There is no need you can have which is so trivial, no pain you can experience which is so great, that prayer cannot soothe it!

Awaken the Wisdom of the Body, via the Heart of the Horse
Saturday, April 27, 12:00-4:00 at Grant Legacy Ranch
Ideally, as we awaken our spiritual consciousness, our bodies tend towards expansion too. However, unlike our sacred animal relatives, sometimes our human bodies get stuck in a pattern of contraction. Over time, these layers of contraction can create a suit of armor that constricts our life energy and can cut off our access to divine wisdom and creativity. In the presence of a horse, whose heart is the size of a basketball, our bodies can’t help but soften and remember their natural state of openness. Come for an afternoon of exploration and reflection as we awaken the wisdom of the body via the heart of the horse. Location: Grant Legacy Ranch Cost: $75 ($15 discount for Unity members). Taught by Meghann Harty, founder of Unbridled Courage, owns Grant Legacy Ranch with her husband Rhett, a 5-acre sanctuary a few miles outside of Sisters, OR. This is where she was introduced to the medicine of the Delicate Lodge and spent two and a half years studying these teachings to become a certified Council Guide. An eternal seeker, Meghann is currently devouring the Unity course content and exploring the Unity path to ministry.

Spiritual Uplift Ministry Group
New Thought organizations and spiritual communities are overdue for spiritually motivated social engagement. Now is the time. We see the world crying out for healing and, by failing to engage, to act, we fail to be true to our principles.
Through the SUM Program (Social Uplift Ministries), AGNT and other New Thought organizations are offering a way to engage from a place of spiritual principle. We are invited to engage because we see the possibilities of love, compassion, and wisdom in our world and we refuse to accept anything less. Acting on principles takes courage, the stuff of heroes. When actions are taken with spiritual principle, intelligence and integrity, conditions improve. (Developed by Association for Global New Thought)
We are called to be the compassionate voice in an often-contentious conversation. To hold the high watch within, while standing in support of ideals of peace and compassion in the streets or on the courthouse steps. We in New Thought have been in hiding too long. We possess knowledge of the principles of peace and wisdom, of manifesting the highest possibilities and healing the greatest pain. It is time for us to stand with others and bring this energy into the activities of our communities, our states, our nations and the world. Love Offering.
