Esoteric Spirituality: Seeking the Light of the Over-Soul

Through November 17

“From the exoteric angle, evolution means growth and development and is largely applied to the form side of nature, and the term ‘evolution’ might thus be confined entirely to the evolution of the form nature. It might also be applied to development within the three worlds and to the third aspect of the divine Life. However, from the esoteric angle, evolution means a steadily increasing sensitivity to light and illumination.” D.Khul

This series of informal discussions is for anyone seeking to increase sensitivity to their inner light. Intentionally following our inner light is known as “the Way” or “the Path.” The Path leads to the Universal Light of the Over-Soul. Esoteric spirituality is a deliberate effort to follow that inner light. There is more information on Facebook.

The Physical/Etheric Body

These two are intimately, but they are not the same. In a sense, the physical is a “precipitation” of the etheric. The chakras are composed of etheric substance. The etheric is more “concrete” than the substance of both the emotional/astral and the mental. Obviously, the physical is the most concrete. Being so concrete, it seems real and our identification “sticks” to it. The Way or Path is the system of learning how to disentangle ourselves from this identification.

Reconstructing Your Theology with Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

Session 3 of 4

Has your life-experience ever put your beliefs to the test? This is called a “Theological Impasse,” when we have a choice to deny our experience, to deny our beliefs, or to become theologian. Rev. Lavanhar invites you to become your own theologian and reconstruct your own set of values and understandings in an authentic way. By the end of this course, you will have written you own credo (or statement of belief or “What you give your heart to.”) This course is part instruction, part, introspection, and part interaction.

In person and on Zoom at allsouls.me/wcc

Sunday Circle on Wednesdays

Join us in an Exploration of Connections through conversational ministry, guided by a commitment to our covenant.

Theology, Fascism and National Security with Intern Minister Cory Lovell

Session 1 of 4

We live in an era where American democracy is imperiled from within by rising authoritarianism and white supremacist domestic terrorism. Our Unitarian Universalist faith has been, and is again, uniquely positioned to counteract this terrifying trend with our commitment to pluralism and beloved community. But we must have a firm understanding of the historical roots of this threat, the way it intersects with theology and economics, and gets transformed into public policy. Join intern minister Cory Lovell for a four week analysis of the ins and outs of Theology, Fascism, and National Security.

Writing About Whiteness with Katja Blum

Writing about Whiteness is a structured 5-week course led by Katja Blum that provides a foundation of honesty and understanding for our individual racial justice work.

CommUUne: Spiritual Nourishment. Purposeful Entertainment.– Streamed online & in person
October 20, November 3 & 17, December 1 & 15
CommUUne explores how our UU values are reflected in pop culture, local issues, and ongoing spiritual formation. CommUUne is a new approach to our midweek service, part chapel and part talk show, created by minister intern, Cory Lovell. Join us for this 30 minute, online service to connect spiritually, be entertained, and learn something new—about each other, yourself, and our wider community.  

Cory Lovell’s approach is in the tradition of John Wolfe’s UNIVISION, Church of the Larger Fellowship’s The VUU, and Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism’s Whose Faith Is It Anyways? Series. His hope is for CommUUne to help us to expand our concept of community in a meaningful and entertaining way.
