HEART MATH COHERENCE CLASS

Mondays -  June 3, June 10, June 17, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Jay Pullen, Facilitator
Discover your heart power to relieve stress and anxiety and use self-regulation based on Heart Math Coherence.


What is HEART-BRAIN COHERENCE?What is it and how can it help me?Having trouble with the journey from the head to the heart?How about building HEART/BRAINCOHERENCE!
An often heard phrase in Unity refers to the journey from the head to the heart.  We generally tend to think of this to mean the allowing of the wisdom in our head to become more deeply embedded in our being, represented metaphorically by the heart. From the organization Heart Math, which has conducted extensive scientific research on the heart for over 25 years, we learn that this metaphorical understanding of the heart should actually be more literal than metaphorical.  This is due to the heart having its own little nervous system and “heart brain.”  With this understanding they have developed a biofeedback system that helps develop “coherence” between the brain and heart, paving the way to help us live the teachings.  Designed to help people with anxiety, stress and self-regulation, it is also a very useful process to help people “raise the frequency,” as we often hear in the wisdom communities.  It is really about exercising the emotional muscles to make those preferred emotions—and the behaviors that follow—more easily accessed and practiced.


This class will be 3 evening classes on Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 beginning June 3rd.  The class size is limited to 6 people, but if more are interested we will create additional class times to accommodate more people.

GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP

PLEASE NOTE: 
GRIEF GROUP WILL NOT MEET
THURSDAY, JUNE 13th 

 

   We will meet next Thursday, June 20, 11:00 am
   USC Office Meeting Room,
Trish Miller, Certified Grief Facilitator

Thursdays, 11:00 to Noon, Meeting in the Office Meeting Room (office is across Carol Street from the main building), Trish Miller, Certified Grief Facilitator, is the facilitator of our Grief Support Group. 

Have you ever wondered, "What is a “Grief Support Group”?

A Grief Support Group is a place you can come and tell your story of loss, whatever that loss may be (friend, pet, family, job, divorce, health, etc.).  It’s a safe place where confidentiality is primary and the sharing of our stories is kept within the group and not shared. And everyone is welcome.

Telling our stories of loss, no matter how hard, frustrating and scary it may be, helps our bodies release old and stagnant emotions that get stuck in our bodies. Releasing our emotions of loss allows room for new lighter emotions.

It’s like the Biblical story in Luke 5:37-39

"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved. And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, 'The old is better."

You are invited to join our Grief Support Group every Thursday at 11-12 p.m. at Unity Spiritual Center in the main building. The Use the CommUnity Room South door or the ADA door.

 

TAPPING FOR HEALTH AND HAPPINESS GROUP

11:45 AM - 12:45 PM, Monthly on THIRD Sundays. Large Classroom  Love Offering. No Tapping experience is necessary. Sunday, June 16th group will be facilitated by Novella Keyler, LCSW, certified in Comprehensive Energy Psychology. 

The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is also known as tapping. It is a technique that has been around since 1995. Acupressure points are tapped in a sequence to help release physical and emotional pain. The positive effects are quick and long lasting. The governments of several countries, including Britain, Canada and Australia, have approved their national health programs to provide tapping as a treatment modality. The American Veteran’s Administration has also approved of tapping to be used for treatment.   Chris Acklen is leading our new tapping group. Chris is a clinical social worker, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. She has had several tapping trainings and much continued study. Chris uses the technique personally and in her work with clients.

          Each week we look at a different selection from the Bible and see how it might help us achieve our highest and best selves in our everyday lives.  We hope to see you on Sunday. 
We hope you can join us on Sundays! email office@abqunity.org and put "Please place me on Metaphysical Bible Study emailing list for info and Google Meet link." in the email.

From TruthUnity.net: "We approach the Bible as the story of the spiritual development of our soul. Remember that New Thought teaches that all things we experience in life had their origin in thought; “we create our experiences by the activity of our thinking.” Metaphysical Bible students, therefore, relate each Bible story, and the characters and places in those stories, to their own development as spiritual beings.

Charles Fillmore wrote, “Apart from being a book of great historical and biographical interest, the Bible is, from Genesis to Revelation, in its inner or spiritual meaning, a record of the experiences and the development of the human soul.” The “theater” is in our consciousness, not in the biblical lands. Although the historical biblical story occurred long ago in the faraway biblical lands, when we do a metaphysical bible interpretation, all the action occurs in our consciousness. We do not metaphysically interpret historical events! What we metaphysically interpret are events in consciousness, in a belief that what occurred centuries ago is an expression of the same Divine Ideas that are now expressing in our own consciousness."
