Spiritual Explorations

Upcoming Course Offerings

New Vista Learning Center has developed a library of video lessons to cover many Unity SEE courses. When you register, Rev Pat will send you a syllabus with links to each video. Before coming to the live session, watch each video, read, and do suggested activities, then come to class to explore the topics with a group. This format honors the adult learner by providing succinct lessons, practical application and personal opportunities for spiritual expansion. In the process, we are forming meaningful spiritual virtual community of people exploring the 2nd Tier of consciousness.

Spiral Dynamics Workshop: January 2023

Join Rev Pat for three Sunday afternoons to learn the basics of Spiral Dynamics, a model for the evolution of consciousness. Although this is not an accredited SEE course, it will be an eye-opening tool for you to develop your own spiritual and social maturity in these crazy chaotic times. Rev Pat is certified to teach Spiral Dynamics and has studied it for 15 years. Three Sundays, January 8, 15, and 24. 4:30-6 EST

The Christ: January 2023

The Christ is our I Am consciousness or “Higher Power.”. In this course, we’ll dive into the scriptures and other texts to learn what that means. We will not use a textbook for this course. You will read articles, watch videos and listen to podcasts. But if you would like to read about this topic, Richard Rohr’s book The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can change Everything We See, Hope For and Believe, (available in Audiobook) is recommended.
