Unity Women’s Retreat

When:  October 19, 2019, 10am-4pm
Where:   Mescal Canyon Retreat Center (directions below)
What:   This will be a day of retreat and connection for the women  of the Unity of the Verde Valley. We will build the day around the theme of “Harvesting Our Inner Spiritual Fire”. 

Our Harvest begins with practical and joyful ways to incorporate self care and well being into a personal daily practice.

There will be  quiet time in nature with a focus on connecting to the inspiration of Spirit that is always available in the natural world just outside our door, and we will tap into our own creative inspiration with a visual art and writing component. 

Have no fear. No experience necessary! The whole day is about each woman finding her own unique path to the Spiritual Fire within.

This day will provide time for quiet personal reflection as well as time for the women of Unity of Verde Valley to connect more closely with each other. As this is a time of building your new Unity Community, this retreat is intended to inspire new ideas and fire people up. 

Harvesting Our Inner Spiritual Fire Retreat Day is an opportunity for each woman to renew her commitment to Saying YES to Spirit in multiple ways each and every day.

Logistics: Each participant will bring her own lunch and drinks and a personal journal. We will provide a few snacks and all art supplies.

We’re asking those who are willing, to park their cars in the front parking lot of Yavapai College on Black Hills Drive and we can carpool to the retreat. We’re meeting there at 9:45 a.m. this coming Saturday, Oct. 19th. For those who need to have their cars with them to leave early or if they’re late and miss the carpooling, here are the directions starting from the college. It is just 4 minutes away.

Continue to drive toward Mingus Mountain on Black Hills Drive until the end where it curves left becoming Haskell Springs Rd. At the end of that road, turn right (turning left is a dead end) which turns into Abbey Rd. South. Continue on Abbey until you see a gate in front of you, go through that gate and the address is 1550 Abbey Rd. South. You can either enter on street side (no stairs) or go down into a small parking area and enter that way which does involve stairs.

Cost $20 p/person

Seats are limited so please RSVP to bethelight@unityverdevalley.org or use the sign up sheet in the sanctuary on Sundays. Reservations must be received on or before Tuesday, October 15th.

Weekly Fellowship with Rev. Janet Kingsley

This week our guest minister is Janet Kingsley. Rev. Janet is local to the Verde Valley and served as minister of the Religious Science church for many years in the Village of Oak Creek. 

She will be speaking on “Hanging in There.” 

We need to stop just hanging in there and we need to let go.  What are we hanging onto that we need to let go of?  Old beliefs…lack and limitations….fear….doubt…..anger….worry…..the need to be right…..the outcome…..attachment to results….judgment.  What else?  What might happen if we let go and trust?

Come hear what she has to say about this.  Rev. Kingsley is a Religious Science Minister who brings humor and enthusiasm in her approach toward spirituality. 

This week’s special music will be provided by Ken Reynolds.

Please join us; we look forward to seeing you there.

Don’t be shy about coming early. Coffee is usually ready by 10:00 AM. We look forward to seeing you there.
