Spiritual Education & Personal Development Opportunities
Many of our classes are part of Unity’s National S.E.E. Program (Spiritual Education and Enrichment Program). Students may also take classes for credit from Unity Institute and Seminary. Completion of requirements lead toward certification as a Licensed Unity Teacher. Email Rev. Peggy White for details.
How does the Spiritual Development Program work?
Students may take five-week classes on a wide variety of topics, such as self-discovery, prayer, prosperity, metaphysics, Bible and spiritual laws, etc. Experiential audio and visual tools are used by all facilitators to address varied learning styles of participants and to create a dynamic classroom experience. Our classes create a personal, nurturing and empowering learning environment for all spiritual seekers. We encourage you to enjoy a great learning adventure, get to know other students of like mind, and talk with teachers who enjoy supporting your spiritual growth.
