SEEing is Believing

February 27 – March 3, 2017

Commit to reach a higher level of personal growth, discover new ideas, and explore practical approaches for a deeper sense of spiritual living!

The Spiritual Education & Enrichment (S.E.E.) program is designed to deepen the understanding of Unity Principles while also enriching the spiritual life of the student. These courses are open to all, but can also be taken for S.E.E. credit for those on the path to becoming a Licensed Unity Teacher. There are two exceptions.

For the first time during S.E.E. Week, we have two LUT candidates participating. You are welcome to take their classes, which are being offered on a love offering basis, but they cannot be taken for credit.

While S.E.E. classes are offered throughout the year at Unity Church of the Hills, S.E.E. Week allows students to really immerse themselves in an environment of growth and learning. Our Spring 2017 S.E.E. Week features 13 classes, outlined below. Lunches are available for purchase each day, and we have a study lounge set up during the week.

Please contact us with any questions about this upcoming S.E.E. Week, or our Spiritual Education & Enrichment Program. If you feel drawn to consider becoming a Licensed teacher, contact Bob Withrow at bobwithrow@unityhills.org, or call the Church office at 512.335.4449.
