Unity SEE courses

Do you want to explore your understanding of The Divine? SEE courses are open to anyone who wants to explore their understanding of “God” and “Self” in a spiritual, non-dogmatic way. These courses attract a powerful group of people and prove to be valuable to everyone’s spiritual awakenings, whether you’ve never set foot in a Unity Center or if you grew up in one.

SEE = Spiritual Education and Enrichment

SEE Courses are part of the adult development curriculum offered by the Unity movement. They are offered at Unity Centers around the world, and at several Unity schools such as Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute and Unity Urban Ministry School. Those who want to go into Unity spiritual leadership are required to take a certain number of courses of these courses. To learn more about the SEE program and how to become a Licensed Unity Teacher or Ordained Unity Minister, go to the UWSI web page.

Healing and Wholeness HTS135

Welcome Rev. Kelly Isola, a remarkable teacher and an excellent source of Unity information and teachings. Kelly has taken a deep dive into Myrtle Fillmore’s teachings.

Four Monday evenings July 17, 24, 31, and Aug. 7, 2023 6:30-9pm ET.

This advanced metaphysics course is based on the universal, spiritual principles that support the expression of healing, health and wholeness in our minds, bodies, and affairs. Unity began with a “spiritual healing” that was mediated through thoughts and feelings, AND application of principles. Participants will be working with how Myrtle and Charles Fillmore’s interpretation of healing and wholeness apply to today’s world. The focus will mainly be on Myrtle Fillmore since she is the foundation for Unity as a healing movement. Such principles will be presented to support students in developing a practical understanding as heart-centered metaphysicians.

Mondays July 17, 24, 31, and Aug. 7, 2023 6:30-9pm ET

$119.00 covers tuition and the transcript fee, which Kelly will submit for you. $74.00 if not taking the course for credit. Registration opens June 17.

WHAT’S THE WORKLOAD (for SEE credit) at New Vista Learning Center?

The work load is similar to what you’d experience in a local classroom. Do an assignment (read, or watch a video or do a meditation) before class so you can be ready to discuss the topic you’ve played with during the previous week. You’ll have some creative prompts for writing in your private journal or practicing a certain type of meditation. Maybe you’ll be asked to lead a guided meditation, “become an expert” on a specific subject in the readings. During our live online session, I offer a mix of short activities. (Instruction, discussion, break-out groups, meditation practice, vocabulary building exercises….)  Most students say the time flies by. I thoroughly enjoy the interaction. It is very spiritually and intellectually stimulating to share ideas together.


I accept rare absences, if you notify me before class begins. I record every session of my classes, and will send you the link to the recording as soon as the class ends. You will send me an email that reflects on the session in a way that I can be assured that you listened actively to the recording. 

Student Reviews

I was concerned about online learning, but I learned it’s much easier to get online than I had feared!

You helped me get into ministry school and you remain one of my very favorite SEE teachers.

I’ve taken 6 classes with Rev Pat and they have been so meaningful!
