Pathway to Membership

Pathway to Membership
Pathway to Membership is a series of three free classes offered several times a year. Attendance at all three classes is required for membership, but anyone is welcome to take them to deepen their understanding of Unity and Spiritual Principles.

The Five Principles constitute the core teachings of Unity. You will discover tools for daily living and explore answers to the great questions of existence: 

  • What is this greater Presence that we sense around us? 
  • How can we communicate with this Presence? 
  • Who and what are we? 
  • Why do things happen in our lives the way they do? 
  • What are we here to do?

The book for these two sessions is The Five Principles, by Ellen Debenport. It’s available for purchase in our bookstore, Inner Journey.

Sound Immersion

March 8, 2019  7:00pm-8:30pm  Love Offering 
Lent is a time for a deeper conversion of the heart, a closer identification to the Christ consciousness. When you enter the world of sound and vibration, you enter a place of hope and healing. Flow with the beautiful sound waves of the Angel Therapy Harps and other soothing sounds to the place of deep relaxation and connection. A place to allow something essential to be, a place to attune to your highest self. 
To best receive the healing energy of the sounds and vibrations, participants are encouraged to sit or lie down and allow themselves to relax. Bring a mat, light blanket and pillow if you wish. Feelings of inner calm, increased happiness, improved mental and spiritual clarity plus a wonderful nights’ sleep are just some of the benefits people enjoy.

Medicine Wheel Activation

Shannon Plummer and Bob Sima present an experiential workshop from 1:00pm-3:00pm on Sunday, February 10, 2019.

The Medicine Wheel Activation is a guided journey through the energies of the Four Directions that lead us to the ultimate nothingness when the soul arrives back to the beautiful place where it began, in the knowing and presence of All That Is. The workshop is an invitation for you to connect our human perception of linear time and space with the spiral reality of the soul’s journey. Each leg of the journey will be activated with tools that carry the medicine of each direction: element, spirit animal, geometry, archetype, breathwork, and music. Shannon and Bob simply create the program for you to enter. The call is for you to re-member the All Of You through your own personal journey.

The conscious exchange is $35.00. Sign up in advance in the Fellowship Hall at Unity of Roanoke Valley and receive a $5.00 discount. See you there!

Fall SpiritGroups

SpiritGroups are coming back to Unity of Roanoke Valley! The groups will start meeting the week of September 10th and meet for 8 weeks. Sign up for a group (in the Fellowship Hall) starting August 19, 2018. We will be work in the book The Power of Eight: Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life and the World by Lynne McTaggart.

Through healthy, balances small groups, people have the opportunity to grow in their spiritual practice and engage with each other in a deep, meaningful manner. In these supportive discussion groups, hosted throughout the community, members gain practical insights about spiritual principles that can empower every area of their lives.



Join Milton Mabe on Thursday evenings in the Gathering Room for an advanced course on prosperity! We will examine the prosperity teachings of Unity, as well as contemporary teachings. Students will explore the broader meaning of prosperity beyond material things to discover their own beliefs about money, abundance and lack. Students create practices for healing limitations they hold about prosperity, and discover ways to address their own unexamined, unconscious assumptions about abundance, giving and generosity. Can be taken for Unity credit.

Guided Labyrinth Walks in September

Join Grace Wood for a guided labyrinth walk.

The Labyrinth is

A spiritual tool for prayer and meditation, for healing,
conversion and transformation.
A wondrous pathway that may become a mirror for our
own lives and metaphor for our spiritual journey.
A circle and a spiral, each a powerful and ancient symbol
of heart, body, mind, and spirit.
A place to walk with an open mind and an open heart.
A space where walking can help us touch sorrow, release joy,
find balance, gain clarity, shed guilt.

Guide me, Holy One along the everlasting path.
Psalm 139

September 5 at 7:30am or 5:30pm
