Conflict Transformation Resources
“If we are going to find our way back to each other, vulnerability is going to be that path”Dr. Brene Brown.
 
It's easy to get caught up in separation thinking which leads us into disconnection. Truly, conflict, if not addressed throughout one's journey can become a vortex of suffering. Conflict can be a healthy growth opportunity for communities and groups to move into true community. Harmony is achieved by listening to and honoring varied stories while witnessing each one moving into one beautiful narrative. How we get there is a step by step awareness of one's self as part of the whole within the family system. It's found in the courageousness of our vulnerability. For more information and resources...

Ethics & Boundaries Resources

“Ethics is nothing else that reverence for life.” Albert Schweitzer

Ministry puts us in touch with one another in very intimate ways.  When we engage with people with a reverence for their place in the web of life, we support their growth and transformation.  To do this we need to have deep compassion, clear boundaries and a well-defined understanding of ethics.  These resources support healthy ethical functioning. For more information and resources...

Ministry Leadership and Board Resources

"So then, encourage one another and build each other up, as you are doing." I Thess. 5:11 I.S.V 

Welcome to the purpose-filled call to serve your community. It's more than governance, it's a life- curriculum of deepening community, awakening purpose and digging deeper into self- awareness. The way of authentic leadership is to encourage one another by listening and being fully present. The journey of board leadership is a call to sacred service and deepening community connection. This can be the greatest journey of the spiritual life.  For more information and resources...

 

Non-Traditional Ministry Resources

Unity’s Ever-evolving Kaleidoscope.
The landscape of our ministries are changing.  Many churches across all denominations are shrinking or closing all together.  The number of U.S. adults who do not identify with any organized religion is growing. Just as the containers from our child hood have changed, so must the containers for our spiritual experience. For more information and resources...


Transitional Resources

Charles Fillmore said that “life is an ever-progressive, upward spiral of consciousness evolution.”  Ministry is about spiritual transformation and evolution and constantly places us in transition – the tender emotional space of letting go and embracing something new.  These resources support individuals and communities in engaging the process of transition intentionally, allowing them to move through transition with greater grace and ease. For more information and resources...
