At Unity of New Orleans Spiritual Center we are a growing community
of spiritually minded, vibrant individuals who welcome everyone
seeking spiritual growth and Truth.

There is only one Power and one Presence in the universe. We at Unity honor the many names of and many paths to that
Divine Presence. 

Join us for weekly Truth Lessons that are inspiring, insightful and thought provoking. To
help you on your spiritual journey, attend our classes, where we learn from spiritual leaders and each other.
Who are we?
Know Thyself
Rev. Mary Beth Ellis
This week’s Truth Lesson is a deeper look into how we can access our authentic self by identifying what is not (Carl Jung calls this our “persona”; Rev. Robert Brumet and others call it our “shadow self”) and letting it go. Unity says that this self knowledge is the prelude to Christ Consciousness.

Unity member Judge Calvin Johnson hosted Rev. Mary Beth Ellis on his radio show on WHIVFM 102.3.
They talked about myriad spiritual ideas and practices. Click here to view!

New Offering!

    Music Therapy for the Soul with Katrina Zech

First Sunday of every month
Starting February 3rd
12:30-1:30 pm

This is a guided meditation and sound healing experience: 
You will be guided through a meditation process with step-by-step relaxation induction, i.e. body awareness, conscious breathing, and visualization/intention/prayer. During the mediation, music instruments, sound healing tools and sacred song will be offered to create a therapeutic sonic container in which to hold the group in a space of safety, comfort and relaxation. By the principle of entrainment, we synchronize with our sonic environment. Music/sound is vibration. It affects us on a cellular level. Sound healing induces deep relaxation, stress reduction, balance, creativity, harmony, healing, and a connection with our higher selves.

Spiritual  LINKS
We at Unity are open to many paths which lead to the Universal One or God.  We study the Bible metaphysically, and we have hosted Buddhist monks from the Sera Jey Monastery in India, Swami Sankarananda, and followers of KaHuna, the native Hawaiian religion.  We have ongoing classes on  A Course in Miracles and   Science of Being, led by Rudolf Steiner students Renée and Burt Lattimore. We frequently reference Buddhism, Hinduism, the Sufis, and Gurdjieff, and we will be starting a Yogananda Sunday school class soon, all in an effort to access Christ Consciousness. Most importantly, we endeavor to let that Consciousness guide our daily lives. We want to “walk the talk” and be that which we study, as Unity co-founder and mystic Charles Fillmore succeeded in doing.

We are a center of practical spirituality; thus, we enrich our lives through books, music, and healthy lifestyle choices, reinforcing the fact that all beings are one with each other and with the Divine. We believe that this divine connection and perfection can and should pervade our lives. We want to connect the dots between the intellectual, spiritual teachings and our daily endeavors.

We are a very open-minded family of spiritual seekers, and we invite others to explore these spiritual ideas with us.
