Meeting in Rumi’s Field

Class facilitated by Rev. Bonnie Rose

7 Thursdays, September 17 – October 29
6:30 – 8:30’ish pm (via ZOOM)

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.” – Rumi

Current world conditions have the capacity to bring out the worst in us. Daily, we confront fear, isolation, and uncertainty. Will we be undone by what happens or will we rise to a new level of understanding and compassion for self and others?

Now is the time to take a stand for the Absolute Reality beyond the polarized relative. Now is the time to practice timeless principles that reveal heaven on earth.

Knowing that all transformation is led by inner transformation, in this class we will work on embracing our own polarities. As the class unfolds, we’ll work with allowing this reconciliation to embrace all beings.

Please join us in Rumi’s Field. It’s true that “when the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.”   But may we trust that our conscious conversation brings the wordless word into form.

Cost is $35


Join us and learn the qualities of your essence and how to dress in harmony with your true nature. Your personal and professional life wll be transformed. You will look and feel DIVINE!

Something magical happens when you “Dress Your Essence.”

You become more beautiful and at ease. People are drawn to you, they feel comfortable with you, trust you, want to buy whatever you are selling. Your unique beauty will sparkle and shine!

After all, you are an expression of God. As within so without.

On a practical level, presentation and visual communication are so important in helping us achieve our goals.

Did you know that over 55% of communication is visual? Are you congruent on the outside with your true self and what you want in your life?

When you repeat your natural design pattern and colors, you create visual integrity between your inner and outer self. Your unique beauty becomes powerfully visible and magnetic.

Let’s have fun dressing your essence together. Show your face of God to the world!

“Defining Moments Redefined” Class

Facilitated by Bernie Austin, RScP
6 Tuesdays, October 13 – November 17, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (via ZOOM)

Where have our beliefs, habits, and patterns come from? Are they supporting our life with fresh new ideas or are we repeating the same old patterns?

Every day is filled with moments that define our attitude, value, worth, or esteem. A smile, a kind word, a bad driver, do these moments influence our day or our lifetime?

Recognize, release, then redefine the life you want to experience.

The ZOOM link will be sent to you prior to the first class meeting.
