Becoming a Metaphysical Bible Detective
Workshop Presented by Rev. Larry Schneider

Larry SchneiderSunday, August 19th, 12:30pm, $25
“An answer? I don’t even know the right question!” –Captain James Kirk, Star Trek, Star Date 7412.8
In the search for deep, personal Bible Truth, you are often sidetracked by superficial answers. If you want a profound personal experience of the mysteries and secrets of the Bible, you’ll need to delve into the stories and ask penetrating questions. The way you formulate your inquiry and questions restricts the answers and insights you can generate. Too often, you limit the possible answers to what you expect, or to what fits your previous knowledge. This workshop outlines a simple process to help you ask questions that invite deeper Truth to reveal itself.

Rev. Larry recommends bringing the following texts to the workshop: Metaphysical Bible Dictionary, The Revealing Word, and any Bible that is a New International Version (NIV).

Phoenix Rising: Sound Healing with René Jenkins and Janet Janay Cipriani

Friday, September 21st at 7:00pm, doors open 6:00pm
Please join Unity of Santa Rosa for “Phoenix Rising,” a special sound healing concert with ancient instrument musician René Jenkins and Janet Janay Cipriani. This Equinox sound blessing concert will promote personal and community healing as we approach the one-year anniversary of the devastating Wine Country firestorms.

René Jenkins is a Ceremonial Sound Practitioner, Professional Musician, ULC Minister, and Healing Performance Artist from Sonoma, CA. Since 1993, René performs sound blessings with ancient ancestral instruments from the Americas, Australia, and Asia, integrating cross-cultural Shamanistic studies, Breema-Shiatsu, Reiki, and more to raise well-being and the vibration of consciousness through intention and sound.

Janet Janay Cipriani is a Certified Angel Therapy Practitioner, and has a healing practice called Divine Connections in Sonoma, CA. An amazing clairvoyant and clairsentient, Janay is an intuitive, medium, sound healer, and Angelic Reader who uses her gifts to offer guidance, insight, and energy healing.

For personal and global transformation, ancient indigenous world instruments are played around and upon your body, clearing outmoded energies and calling in the Greater Vibrational-Light of Source. Bring your intention and prayers for yourself, your loved ones, and the Earth.

    GreetingsI was wondering if your workshops have set fees or you ask for donations or if they are free. Thanks!

  4. Hello, Gail. The prices of our workshops vary, depending on the presenter and the type of workshop. We have workshops that are free, by donation, or for a set fee. I see I neglected to include the fee for the 5-Week Mindful and Intentional Living course mentioned above. That one is $197. The First Wednesday Prayer and Meditation Circle is free, although donations are gratefully accepted. Please let me know if you have any other questions, either here or at
    Thank you!
