Spiritual Growth Classes
Monthly Contemplative Practice Classes
Starting Saturday May 14th, 2022, Yvonne Racine will be leading classes on various contemplative practices in person at Unity of Edmonton.
Contemplative practices can be found in all faith traditions. The main purposes of these practices are cultivating awareness and developing a stronger connection to the Divine Self or inner wisdom.
Some of the benefits of regular contemplative practice include feeling more grounded, improved mood, concentration and mindfulness as well as improved immune function and reduced anxiety and depression.
There are numerous practices from both the West and the East that can be beneficial. Some resonate more with each individual than others. So, Yvonne will be teaching a variety of practices in the classes and will also be providing other opportunities through the month via Zoom for support and practice together for those who attend the in-person classes.
Classes will be held Saturdays from 1 – 2:30 pm: Jun 18, Jul 16, Aug 20, Sep 17, October 15.
Classes are presented on a love offering basis and everyone is welcome. There are no prerequisites and participants do not have to attend every class. For more information you can email Yvonne at email@example.com.
Sundays at 10:30 am: in-person at the church or on-line through ZOOM (Sign up to Zoom).
First Sunday of each month is POT LUCK! Bring a dish to share. All are welcome.
