CIRCLE OF PEACE
5:45 to 6:45pm
Led by Mary Dawn Pyle, MA, Professor of World Religions (retired), Author, Chaplain
The Circle of Peace is an exciting new, inclusive and open-minded group. This group is for anyone who wants to live more peacefully within themselves and with others. The gathering begins with a brief (less than 10 minutes) lesson from one of the world's great wisdom traditions including Buddhism, Taoism, Native American Spirituality, Unity/Christianity, Sufism, Feminist Spirituality, and others. The lesson will be followed by a period of sharing on the topic, and a stress-relieving guided meditation.
The Circle of Peace begins March 30, and meets every Thursday from 5:45 to 6:45 PM at Unity of St Petersburg, 6168 1st Avenue North in St Pete.
You may sit in a chair, but if you prefer a cushion, please feel free to bring it. Also, please invite others who might be interested in this group.
If you have questions, call Mary Dawn at 727-608-8748.
This course examines the prosperity teachings of Eric Butterworth. Students will explore the broader meaning of prosperity beyond “material things” to discover their own beliefs about money, abundance and lack. Students will create practices for healing limitations they hold about prosperity, and discover ways to address their own unexamined, unconscious assumptions about abundance, giving and generosity

Celebrating Interdependence Day

AN INTERDEPENDENT EXPERIENCE
There was a time in our history when declaring our independence was important, and it was... then. Today there is a different world…a different energy of interdependence calling us to recognize it. Recognition is essential to the reconstruction of a world consciously open to all beings... a world cognizant of its interdependence with the environment… the animals, the trees, our waters and our vegetation; an awareness of our interaction with the very air we breathe that is essential to our survival. We need each other; but do we need to work together to keep the pieces of our universal puzzle in their usual place… or are we, as people of a new evolving universe, ready to slowly move the pieces around and consciously create a new universe and call it home.
The consciousness of the world is struggling to reposition the pieces in this puzzle of life… a puzzle that may ultimately mean our survival as a world. We know in our hearts there is room for all. There is room for all in this very place that we call…Unity of St. Petersburg, our spiritual home. It is our own real example of continuous deconstruction and reestablishment of what we feel is important…values; of sharing our talents and abilities…community participation; of accepting people as and where they are… cultural and social acceptance; of exploring creative ways to deepen our connection to God…spiritual exploration and respect for individual paths to God. We are being challenged to take these microcosmic strengths and intentionally bring them into our community and ultimately into our world.
I invite you to visualize a universe which is spiritually, culturally, environmentally and economically sound for all peoples and to celebrate Interdependence Day.
