Food is Medicine

What is food to you? Why do you want to be healthy? How would being healthy and feeling good change your life? Our body is made out of food. Could it be that what we’re eating is making us sick? What if there is no disease, just a lack of health in the tissues? We are born with the ability to heal. When you give your body what it needs, it heals. Come learn how you can support your body in healing itself.

Carol Allers is a health educator, providing people with information and tools to accomplish their health goals. Carol has committed the last 6 years to a deep study of the new science of epigenetics and the latest holistic methods. Carol knows that food is medicine and has supported her own body in healing from a variety of health problems including fibromyalgia, asthma, neuropathy, chronic fatigue and anxiety/depression.

Spiritual Economics

Too often when we think of prosperity we think of it in terms of what we have or don’t have or by what we can or cannot do. We find ourselves chasing an illusion of prosperity that simply does not exist. Rather than focusing on what we want to have or do, we can shift our focus to what we choose to BE. This allows us to connect deeply and powerfully with our divine purpose. When we are on purpose and in the flow, everything we need to accomplish that purpose is brought forth to us. In this class, we will explore a spiritual approach to economics, learning how we can participate in creating a world of ‘enoughness’, a world that truly works for all.

Students are strongly encouraged to purchase the book before the first class session and read along with the class as chapters are assigned by the instructor. Spiritual Economics by Eric Butterworth ((2001) ISBN 0-87159-269-X

Facilitator:  Rev. Lauri Boyd

Who Wrote the Bible

This class offers a unique view of the Bible by looking at the history and culture of the people who wrote it and the times in which they lived. Based on the book by Richard Elliott Friedman, we will explore a mystery as compelling as any good detective story: Who Wrote the Bible? We will focus on the central books of the Old Testament drawing upon biblical and archaeological evidence to build up a vivid picture of the world of the Bible, its politics, history and personalities. Whether you are brand new to the Bible, or seeking to enrich your understanding, you will find this class has much to offer.

Students are strongly encouraged to purchase the book before the first class session and read along with the class as chapters are assigned by the instructor. Who Wrote the Bible by Richard Elliott Friedman (1989) ISBN 0-06-063035-3
