Tapping for Health and Happiness Group  

11:45 AM - 12:45 PM, Monthly on 4th Sundays, Love Offering, 9800 Candelaria NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87112

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.

About the Creation of Happy Circles: From Rev. Gordon - As I have studied the teachings of Jesus, I have noticed that he would meet the needs of individuals first, in order that they may then be able to meet other's needs. One of the things he did was to gather a circle of people whom he could teach and train to go out into the world and spread his teachings.  Tradition says there were twelve, but in fact there were many more, and many of them were women. The hope was that each of those "Circle Members" (Apostles), would then go out and create new circles.

Come and join the Circle of Co-Creation!  Come and become the "Continuation of the Great Educational Movement Inaugurated by Jesus the Christ".  (Charles Fillmore's definition of Unity)

Healing Prayer Circle

6:30 pm, 4th Thursdays, Sanctuary, 9800 Candelaria NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87112

Join in prayers for healing whether for yourself, others, the world. All are welcome. 

Unity was founded due to healing. After attending a seminar by Dr. E. B. Weeks, Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore, had a revelation about healing. She had battled with tuberculosis most of her life and was in the end stages of the disease. She began to affirm that as a perfect child of God (as we all are) she could be healed and she was. She shared her insights with others in circles and gatherings and along with her husband, Charles Fillmore, created the Unity movement.

With prayerful intention and affirmation for friends, family, community, and our world in a consciousness of healing, peace, prosperity and well-being we form a Healing Circle every 4th Thursday at USC ABQ.

Reading Between the Lines Metaphysical Bible Study

8:30 - 9:30 am, Sundays, Online using Zoom; email the office for the link : office@uscabq.org, Love Offering. 

This is our oldest continuing group at USC ABQ! It is facilitated by Patrick Knight and Jay Pullen. We will be returning to in person gatherings in the future. 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."
