Unity of Melbourne grieves with the people of Orlando. We are holding a space of love, peace, compassion and prayer for the LGBT community, the Latin American community and everyone touched by the tragic mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub on 6/12/16.

Unity of Melbourne is committed to do our part to create a world that promotes acceptance, harmony and peace, a world that is no longer hurt by fear or violence but a world that celebrates love and our common humanity. We pray together, we heal together, we express Divine Love through our words and actions and by doing so we help change our world.

Merry Christmas 2014

It is a beautiful day and I have a few quiet minutes as I wait for The Sunrise Mobile Bank to arrive. A perfect time to try out our new blog.  A perfect time to send an invitation to our Christmas Eve Service at 7:00pm tonight and to say a prayer for each of us.

As we gather our energy and take a deep breath, focusing on our physical heart space, we exhale letting go of any tension and expectations.  We open our spiritual and emotional hearts to share love and peace with the world.  We let our light out to shine the way for others and we bask in the love, peace and light reflected back to us. We choose in this moment to bless and to be blessed and so it is in the name of the living Christ presence which indwells us all.

Love and Blessings,

Rev. Beth

Additional information about Rev. Joan Gattuso

Rev. Joan Gattuso is one of the most insightful and compelling teachers of our time.  She has inspired millions internationally through her weekly messages, stirring lectures, workshops, counseling and bestselling books, A Course in Love and A Course in Life.  Joan’s third book, The Lotus Still Blooms, received The Silver Nautilus Award, given to authors of books of exceptional merit that make a literary and heartfelt contribution to spiritual growth.

Joan’s current venture is completing her fourth book, The Power of Forgiveness, which will be published in latter 2015.

Joan was born in Akron, Ohio where she lived a short time before her family relocated to Gloucester, Massachusetts. At a young age, Joan developed a great love for New England, and in its beauty and comfort Joan began her early quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Over the years, Joan’s openness to exploring life’s many opportunities has allowed her to evolve through the highs and lows that come with living a full life.  She has withstood and triumphed over difficult relationships, a cancer diagnosis and subsequent path to healing and the struggles of building a sustainable church.

Joan’s own often painful history developed her commitment to healing the past and attracting joyous circumstances and loving relationships into her own life. Joan has imparted these critical life lessons over the course of her career as a teacher, speaker and author and has become a highly sought after mentor and guide.

Through the insights into her own life, Joan has gained an intense understanding of our deep connection to a Higher Power and the inner workings of human relationships and their potential when they are partnered with a spiritual foundation. Joan has also applied these principles in her personal business and in the establishment of Unity of Greater Cleveland in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where she served as minister for 29 years.

Joan developed many of her tenets through her work in 1979 to become a Unity minister and her ongoing studies under His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people. She has adopted his teaching that the purpose of life is to be happy through compassion, humor, wisdom and spiritual insights.  Joan gently guides individuals in her workshops in the steps to get there, to integrate happiness and love into their everyday lives and maintain their personal inner joy while gaining liberation from suffering.

She is a dynamic speaker relating her knowledge to all paths of life, guiding those from the most learned to the reluctant seeker into a deeper understanding of the exceptional possibilities within this present life. Joan is joyfully living her philosophy of a happy, holy relationship with her husband and soulmate David Alexander on the island of Molokai in Hawaii and continues to be a beacon of light to those seeking a more triumphant life experience.

A Spiritual home where everyone is welcome
