2nd Friday Experience: Dying to Die or Dying to Live Workshop
August 10, 7:00 pm
Have you experienced upsets, disappointments or traumas in your life that impacted you in a way that you wish you could undo it? Are you living your life on purpose or are you secretly just waiting for the next upset or trauma? Are you really living? Has your life become more about surviving than thriving? Would you like to change that?
In this experiential class, we'll use the tools of Access Consciousness and give you verbal tools and show you a hands on Access Consciousness body process that will help you shift your life from surviving to thriving. At the end of this evening you will be able to use the body process on others, have some verbal tools and you may even find that living or dying is just a choice.
Please be willing to relax and enjoy sharing a body process with another person and to allow your feet to be touched. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
Suggested donation $20 (all proceeds donated to Unity). Donna DeGutis is an Access Consciousness Body Process Facilitator.
August 19, after both services

Rev. Hiller has been Spiritual Leader at Unity of Myrtle Beach, SC since 2005 and former Director at previous Kanuga Retreats. “What if …… we are witnessing and participating in our own evolution – the ever unfolding, ever expanding, ever awakening consciousness of humankind?....Since the future is yet to be created and creation is an inside job, our Calling is to speak, imagine, respond, act, live from the ‘Heart’ – rather than from fear-based thoughts and actions. This is Metanoia – the revelation that WE ARE the Light of the World.” – Margaret Hiller
