A Course in Miracles @ Living Water Spiritual Community Arvada
Feb 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

A Course in Miracles Lively Open Discussion Group

Bring A Course in Miracles to life in your personal daily experiences. This dynamic group, led by 20-year veteran ACIM student Rev. Paula Langguth Ryan, is an on-going weekly open discussion group.

We read aloud sections from the Text and a Lesson and then engage in a facilitated discussion of what it all means and how we can use the principles in our lives.
We take conflicts that are going in our personal lives and transform them using ACIM principles.

If you’ve ever delved into ACIM and thought “What the HECK are they talking about?” you may enjoy this group! We meet you exactly where you are in the study of the Course. Come laugh, learn and grow together through our ego experiences while we transform our perception from Fear to Love and you will bring greater joy, peace, love and fulfillment into every area of your life!

ACIM Text/Lessons book highly recommended; if you don’t have one to bring with you, evening loaners will be available.

Join us every Thursday from 6:30-8:30pm at Living Water Unity in Arvada. Each weekly group is offered on a Love Offering basis.

Shedding Light on the Gospels — Part I @ Living Water Spiritual Community Arvada
Feb 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

John Shelby Spong, bestselling author and popular proponent of a modern, scholarly and authentic Christianity, reflects upon the true meaning and application of the scripture depicting Jesus’ life in his best-selling work, “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism”.

The four gospels – Mark, Matthew, Luke and John – provide the most reliable synopsis of the teachings of Jesus, as imperfect as that summary may be. But the gospels do not stand by themselves, either in content, in purpose or in style, but are a continuation of the Hebrew literature that has come to be called “scripture”. In this discussion group, we will draw upon Bishop Spong’s book to illuminate the foundation and expression of the gospels so we can better understand the teachings that are offered through them.

While many of us have rejected the literal interpretation of the gospels — the contradictions, impossibilities and historical inaccuracies — there is much to be learned about the life and times of this most influential teacher from the Levant living two millennia ago. This first of two-part discussion of the Jesus teachings will examine the background and meaning of the books of Mark, Matthew and Luke. Being the most mystical of the four gospels, the book of John will be covered in greater detail a follow-up discussion group later in the Spring.

We will spend 8 weeks studying this work of Bishop Spong. His book, either as a paperback or as an ebook, is available at http://www.amazon.com/Rescuing-Bible-Fundamentalism-Rethinks-Scripture/dp/0060675187/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1418235862&sr=1-1.

Price for the 8 week class is $55 including the workbook. Scholarships are available. Facilitated by Rev. David Ridge. For more information, contact David at livingwaterunity@comcast.net.

Sacred Healing @ Living Water Spiritual Community
Mar 15 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

UNITY’S HISTORY OF HEALING

Unity came into being because of Myrtle Fillmore’s personal experience of spiritual healing. It was Charles Fillmore’s curiosity of the cause of her successful healing which led him to research the major religious traditions of the world, resulting in his and Myrtle’s formulation of the teachings of Unity. In the early days of Unity (in the late 1880’s), the primary focus of Myrtle’s healing practice was with physical and emotional healing of those that came to her after hearing of her success.

Through the 120+ years since its founding, Unity has continued its healing tradition through prayer circles and other informal programs presented by each ministry’s spiritual leaders. These practices have been based on the principle that all healing occurs first in consciousness, then in the physical form.

Sacred Healing practitioners at Living Water Unity continue that healing tradition today. Through the research of two medical professionals, Dr. Brugh Joy and Dr. Richard Moss, and the integration of Unity’s spiritual principles by Rev. Scott Sherman, a contemporary form of energetic healing has been developed that more deeply embeds the healing tradition in Unity. Our Sacred Healing practitioners have been certified in this healing practice and are honored to serve you in assisting with your own healing.

UNITY’S SACRED HEALING PRACTICE

A key principle of Unity’s Sacred Healing practice is that each of us was created whole and healed. Our “dis-ease” comes from restrictions in the free flow of our body’s life energy. The freely flowing energy can be facilitated by the practitioner “connecting” with 12 key energy points on the body (see diagram at right).

The practitioner begins by seeing you as completely healed (as was Jesus’ practice) and holding you in unconditional love and high regard (done in the opening minutes of the sacred healing practice). The practitioner, with your permission, will lightly and progressively touch these 12 points and any other areas you request to receive special attention for healing. You may also request that the practitioner use ‘near touch’ instead. She/he will continue holding you in unconditional love, seeing you just as you were created – healed and whole.

Upon completion of the progression through the energy points, she/he will then rest in meditation and silent prayer with you for a few minutes. She/he will then begin an intuitive ‘balancing’ of your body’s energy flow followed by the ‘regression’ through the 12 energy points.

The process takes about 40 minutes to complete. You will be lying on your back, fully clothed, on a comfortable massage table the entire time.

12 ENERGY POINTS ON THE BODY

1.Heart
2.Solar Plexus
3.Mid-chest
4.Spleen
5.Navel
6.Throat
7.Hara
8.Third Eye
9.Knees
10.Crown
11.Feet
12.Transpersonal Point

Please feel free to ask the practitioner any questions or to express any anxiety you may have about the Sacred Healing practice. The practitioner’s intentions are that you feel safe, loved and open to the healing activity of God, the only Source of healing. If you have any concerns, it helps you to open to the healing process by expressing those concerns.

For appointment contact Jeff Graef — graef.jeff@comcast.net.
