Imagine living your life fearlessly and powerfully, true to yourself in your work and relationships. You are the creator of your wonderful life - no longer a victim of circumstances like time, finances, a diagnosis, what people say or think about you or anything else. Now imagine a world where everyone’s experience is the same. That is what we are about at Abundant Life Spiritual Center. Real Peace.
We exist to unleash the divine authentic expression within and empower everyone to live abundant, amazing lives – lives of authentic self-expression, purpose, wholeness, creativity and love. We believe that's how we were created to live!
On Sunday, February 26, 2017 Abundant Life Spiritual Center will hold its annual White Stone Service, a tradition within Unity. Each year we start the year with the Burning Bowl service, releasing thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve us. The White Stone ceremony is about listening to the still, small voice within and claiming your Truth. During our meditation, we will listen to Spirit for a new name, a new way of being in the world. Your heart is calling you to Divine purpose!
Spirit-led, we have recently shifted to a new format for our Sunday gatherings. Whereas in the past you may have experienced what we called a ‘Sunday service,’ we are now gathering to learn practical principles for spiritual living through current events, informal storytelling, music, prayer, dialogue and discovery. We call it a Spiritual Forum.
On Wednesdays, March 22 & 29 and April 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm our Prayer Chaplains will teach an Affirmative Prayer class. Come, learn and practice prayer in a safe space. We will teach a five-step affirmative prayer that you can use in your daily life for yourself and others. Prayer is the foundation of Unity as well as Abundant Life Spiritual Center. Learning how to pray and establishing a daily practice will raise your consciousness and change your life.
At Abundant Life Spiritual Center we hold the intention to positively affect our neighbors and communities in the City of Chicago through prayer. We meet monthly, typically on the first Sunday of the month from 11:30 am to noon. Beginning February 2017 we will be using the ancient Hawaiian practice of Ho'oponopono to heal our beloved city of Chicago.
Imagine being able to say 'yes' to opportunities that come your way because you know they fit your life purpose! In this workshop you will be guided through a process that will help keep your life centered in joy. Bring a bag lunch and join us from 11:45 to 2 pm in the Patty Turner Center library. This workshop is led by Bonnie DeMartini, LUT. Fee is $20
For 40 days leading up to Inauguration, we gathered as a spiritual community every weekday morning in prayer to hold the high watch for our nation and ourselves. We focused on the spiritual ideas of Faith, Love, Freedom Compassion, Peace, Harmony, Letting Go and Letting God, Leading by Example, Divine Order, Healing, Understanding and Forgiveness. This prayer helped many of us to direct our lives in positive ways, rather than fall into the muck of negativity and gossip, and raise our vibration and that of our nation. We will be continuing these calls on a weekly basis.
To see how this time of prayer can benefit you, here are some comments from one of our participants:
