- Room 203 Unity Oaks
Discover the Ancient Gnostics
The ancient Gnostics were a source of spiritual inspiration and a fascinating historical phenomenon.
Most of the Gnostic gospels/codices, discovered hidden in jars in 1945 by an Egyptian peasant, have now been transcribed and made available by outstanding academic scholars for us to understand.
The Gnostics were individuals and communities that focused on mystical practices, revelation, grand metaphysical speculation and interpreted scripture in ways that were against the grain of orthodoxy.
Join Pam Braunig and Ann Kennedy, MA, LMHC, NBCC as they introduce and explore a completely different kind of thinking.
Saturdays, February 17 & 24 – 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. – $90 in advance; $100 at the door

REVIEWS OF CLASS
I so enjoyed, and learned, from the course taught by Ann Kennedy and Pam Braunig. Their in-depth knowledge and clear presentation of the material opened my eyes to a whole new dimension of the development of the Christian faith in historical terms. The course made me thirsty to learn more about the Gnostics and the ongoing discoveries and translations of their Gospels – and their life and times – and how these contribute to Christian thought. – Claudia Robinson
The Gnostics class has been a fascinating study of an unfamiliar area. I believe the class has strengthened my own foundation of Unity and spiritual truths we continue to seek daily. – Harriet Spires
Hats off to Pam and Ann!!! Their months of research and planning resulted in a wonderful class with lasting benefits. The truth shall set you free. – Chuck Supan
Thank you so much for all the research and preparation for this class. It has been an amazing journey back in time to reveal information that is so relevant for today and my spiritual evolution. Not only has it been a great learning experience, but has given me the opportunity to broaden my community of souls on a quest for Truth. You have left me wanting more!! -- Donna Sue Weaver

About Insight Meditation
Insight Meditation aims to free the mind from the distortions of self-centeredness, negativity
and confusion. Through intensive practice of moment-to-moment investigation of the body-
mind process, the mind gradually sees more clearly into the nature of itself. Such clear seeing
leads to freedom from the attachments and misconceptions that cause our suffering and allows us to open to a path of wisdom and compassion. Insight Meditation is a powerful tool for liberating ourselves from the bondage of our conditioning.
Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept pleasure and pain, fear and joy, and all aspects of life with increasing balance and equanimity.
This practice, also known as Vipassana, originated 2500 years ago with the teachings of the
Buddha and is still a vital part of the Theravada Buddhist traditions of Southeast Asia.
