June 16th: Steve and Trudy Bhaerman
Music by Emily Hamilton
Lesson: “Loaves and Fishes”
When we hear the loaves and fishes story we think of “miracles” or perhaps even a Biblical tall tale.
But what if Nature herself provides just such renewable abundance, and we’ve simply failed to notice it–until now?
In this inspiring, informative and entertaining talk, Steve and Trudy discuss the sacred economy and a sacred plant, and how we can live and thrive inside the web of life and web of love. If it looks as if our civilization is headed to hell in a handbasket, this talk will present a “stairway to heaven” grounded in practical reality.
Steve Bhaerman is an internationally known author, humorist, and workshop leader. For over 30 years, he has written and performed as Swami Beyondananda, the “Cosmic Comic.” Swami’s comedy has been described both as “comedy disguised as wisdom” and “wisdom disguised as comedy.” Marianne Williamson has called him “The Mark Twain of our generation.”
On the “serious” side, Steve has co-authored Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here with cellular biologist Bruce H. Lipton (Hay House, 2009). Steve can be found online at www.wakeuplaughing.com.
Trudy Bhaerman is a beauty and well-being maven, with more than 50 years experience in the healthy food field, including working at a pioneering nutritional clinic in Detroit and professionally recording holistic health seminars. She is also an expert on agricultural industrial hemp and is becoming an expert on hempcrete building. She combines spiritual wisdom and playful humor in all of her work and play.

June 30th: David McNair
Music by Star Tom
Lesson: “Unity 101, Part 1: An American Love Story”
Unity was forged in a crucible of tragedy that struck a couple who were very much in love. Unity is a distinctly American Spiritual Movement. This talk presents some of the events which led to us being here on Sundays, and suggests what we can choose to do now that we’ve arrived.
David McNair is the black sheep in his family. The son and grandson of Episcopal Bishops, he found Unity thirty-four years ago, and has never looked back. He has performed every job possible in a Unity Ministry as a volunteer. He has advanced training in Hospital Chaplaincy, Hospice Grief Counseling, Unity Chaplaincy, and Pastoral Counseling. He has served as a Licensed Unity Teacher, as the Spiritual Leader of Unity Clear Lake, on Unity’s West Central Regional Board and as the Pastor Emeritus of Unity of Richmond. He believes that the presentation of spiritual principles should be interesting, practical, and arrive with a sense of humor.
July 7th: Rev. Dr. Bob Brach
Music by Andoni
Lesson: “Life is a School–Ring that School Bell”
In Myrtle Fillmore’s book, How to Let God Help You, she alludes to life’s being a school set by Spirit. We will look more closely at this concept, along with examples of how some folks have applied their lessons in the face of adversity.
Rev. Dr. Bob Brach was ordained in 2009, and was among the first group of Unity Institute’s graduates to earn a Masters in Divinity. In recent years, he has been a regular speaker at Unity Ministries throughout the state of Missouri, and now in Northern California. He hosts the Unity Online Radio Show, Unity Classic Radio: Words from Our Past, featuring unpublished talks and lessons of Unity’s co-founder, Charles Fillmore. He conducts SEE classes, Unity Basic Classes, and workshops on “The Rhetoric of Charles Fillmore”. Bob is the online Bible instructor for The Unity Urban Ministerial School ordination path. He also leads wonderful gentle yoga classes.
