Classes

  • Overview: Christian Scriptures

    This course explores the Gospels, letters, history (Book of Acts), and apocalyptic literature (Book of Revelation) that comprises what is more commonly known as the “New Testament” of the JudeoChristian Bible. The student will develop a basic understanding of the Christian Scriptures’ meaning for the people to whom they were written. This course is based on the premise that, whatever else the Christian Scriptures may be; they most definitely are the response of early Christian writers to both the person and the message of Jesus Christ. This course examines the Christian Scriptures as a testament about Jesus by early Christian communities

  • Self-Awareness

    Self-awareness is necessary for optimal balance and functioning in life. To be self-aware is to realize the dimensions of self and the states of those dimensions. Human beings are more than physical body; they also have spiritual and soul (psyche) dimensions which are equally if not more important than the body. Students will explore the dimensions of self by studying various systems and techniques for self-awareness. They will become more conscious of: their attitudes, beliefs and ways of being; symptoms of stress and imbalance; healthy responses to stress and imbalance; and how to integrate spiritual principles to maintain balance and honor all facets of their being.

  • Bible Interpretation: Acts to Revelation

    Unity’s “maieutic” and metaphysical approach to interpreting scriptures aims to help the interpreter cultivate self-knowledge and make contact with the Higher Spiritual Self commonly called “Christ within” and “Christ consciousness.” Students discover inner spiritual meanings of Christian Scriptures (Acts through Revelation) as they continue to apply the Unity method of interpretation to “the New Testament.”

    Recommended Prerequisites: SCS 105 – Overview: Christian Scriptures and SCS 110 Bible Interpretation: Hebrew Scriptures

  • Metaphysics 3

    The third phase in metaphysical study focuses on opening the way for greater expression of the student’s Divine Potential. To that end, students will be encouraged to investigate, analyze and use basic metaphysical tools for living.
