Unity of Buffalo offers opportunities for developing a positive path for spiritual living.
“Unity is a link in the great educational movement inaugurated by Jesus Christ. Our objective is to discern the truth in Christianity and prove it. The truth we teach is not new; neither do we claim special revelations or discover of new religious principles. Our purpose is to help mankind to use and prove the eternal Truth taught by the Master.” – Charles Fillmore, Unity co-founder
Prayer and education have been the fundamental building blocks of Unity from the very beginning of our movement.
Spiritual Practices - Among the spiritual practices that we teach and live at Unity of Buffalo are:
- Sacred Service
- Spiritual Study
What is Spiritual Study? Our Buddhist friends refer to this as adopting the practice of “beginner’s mind”, knowing that wherever we are on our spiritual path, whatever is going in our lives, we can bring “new eyes”, a fresh perspective to things and see a deeper meaning, the lesson, the gift, the opportunity that is before us. Spiritual study can include many things. It may be reading a book or watching a video on your own to grow and expand in consciousness. Our experience here at Unity of Buffalo is that coming together for classes, book studies, workshops is an even more fun, enjoyable and transformative way to grow and learn. For this reason, we offer Spiritual Discovery Groups.
Our regular on-going Spiritual Discovery Groups are:
- A Course in Miracles – meets every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
- Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practice Group – meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month, 7- 9 p.m.
Other Spiritual Discovery Groups are usually five-six weeks in length around a specific topic, theme or book.
- All classes at Unity of Buffalo are offered on a love offering basis. Students are invited to give a generous love offering.
