Unity Chapel of Light
Martha Creek, a nationally known speaker, minister, facilitator, coach and mentor, is coming to Unity Chapel of Light, 503 Northwest Ave., Nov. 3. Creek will speak at the 10 a.m. Sunday service and will facilitate a workshop from noon to 2 p.m.
First, at the 10 a.m. service, Creek will deliver "What is your BS?," which offers this challenge: Thought creates belief creates story … who would you be without your story?
Creek's noon workshop, "Loving What Is: A Workshop Based on 'The Work' of Byron Katie," introduces a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause depression, anger, fear, addiction and violence in the world. Participants will learn how to undo those thoughts, through The Work, allowing the mind to return to its true, awakened, peaceful, creative nature. In short: learn how to stop suffering.
Byron Katie's acclaimed self-inquiry method, The Work, has been taught around the world for more than 25 years and applauded by numerous New Thought leaders, including Wayne Dyer and Oprah Winfrey. Her bestselling book, "Loving What Is," delineates the simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches readers to identify and question their thoughts, understand what hurts and to address the cause of problems with clarity. For more information on Katie, visit www.the work.com.
Creek has the ability to present a great deal of information in a simple, humorous and attainable way. She facilitates workshops, weekend intensives, teleclasses and individual sessions on organizational change and development, conflict resolution and mediation, and more. She became a certified facilitator of The Work after the book literally fell into her hands in a bookstore in 2002.
"Like a special delivery to my soul, 'Loving What Is' opened a portal in my heart and mind that years of spiritual searching and exploration had not. It is my pleasure to bring 'The Work' to those who find freedom more interesting than suffering!" said Creek.
For more information on Creek, visit www.marthacreek.com.
Both events are open to the public; they are free, but offerings will be gratefully accepted. Guests are invited to dress comfortably for both events. The building is completely handicap-accessible. Childcare will be provided. Reservations for the workshop would be appreciated but are not required. Make them by calling 330-928-2108 or emailing email@example.com.
