The Power of Compassion and Loving Kindness, Sunday, June 24, 7 pm

In the words of the Dalai Lama, "love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.  Without them, humanity cannot survive."

This Sunday, June 24, join Rev. Tara Steele as she explores these questions and others at the Sunday evening service.  It starts at 7 pm in Room 10; all are welcome.

Sunday Evening, July 10, 7 PM "Your Biggest Victim - You" -- Up Until Now

"What untold grief of heart might be relieved by words of cheer (reframing)and forgiveness.”

Everyone goes through personal changes during the course of their lives and everyone handles them differently. Unfortunately not all changes can be predicted. The loss of a job or the loss of a loved one can be unexpected and can trigger the natural organic process of grief.

This Sunday evening, join Ministerial Intern Tynya Beverly in exploring how to embrace this season of spiritual healing using the powerful tools of forgiveness. Working through the forgiveness process provides an opportunity for emotional healing, allowing you to find the freedom you deserve. You can set yourself free by releasing the past so it no longer has control over your thoughts, feelings or behavior. Forgiveness may not always be easy; it is always worth your time and effort.  Join us for evening service, 7 PM in Room 10.

By the way, for those of you who haven't yet gotten to know this amazing woman, here is a bit about Tynya's spiritual journey and who she is:

I am a life-long learner and seeker. It was through an invitation to Agape in 1988 that I was introduced to Science of Mind, Ernest Holmes, and Emma Curtis Hopkins. It was like I finally found a spiritual philosophy with which I could align myself and feel completely at home. For the first time I was encouraged and given the tools I needed to really step into my personal power and truly develop my deeply personal relationship and connection to the Great Spiritual Presence that I call God.

I grew up in Los Angeles and experienced challenging times after the divorce of my parents. The challenges I experienced from this separation gave me the ability to empathize with the many difficulties that my clients face in their daily lives.

I served as a Ministerial Intern, Practitioner and also on the Board of Trustees. I love being a part of the Center for Spiritual Awareness in the West Sacramento community.

I believe that every person is a never to be repeated miracle. There are no two alike in the entire Universe. I am blessed by the opportunity to touch shoulders with all I meet. Changing our thoughts changes everything around us.

My spiritual goal is to teach the principles of the Science of Mind for the purpose of lifting hearts and minds to conscious embodiment of our spiritual magnificence. We are all one with the Divine and have unlimited power through the use of our Word. We can bring peace to our lives and to our planet. We are Spirit expressing!
