We behold the Light in you

Welcome to Unity of Greater Portland! We would love to have you come and celebrate a deeper walk in God with us. We are a loving community that celebrates together our love of God, of each other, and all of life. Many who have come here for the first time commonly express, with a sense of awe and gratitude, “I feel like I’ve come home.”

You may know about Unity from the Daily Word, our daily devotional that brings comfort and insight to millions of people around the world, or from Silent Unity, our worldwide prayer ministry.

Unity is a non-denominational Christ-based community and, as its name implies, welcomes and cherishes all people. Our greeting to each other is “Namaste,” meaning “I behold the Light in You.”

meditationMeditation Sampler
Wednesdays, July 6 – August 10, 6:45-7:45 p.m.
The benefits of meditation have been widely studied and documented. We know that people who regularly meditate experience decreased stress, a greater ability to respond to life in a thoughtful, non-reactive way, and generally experience greater feelings of peace and joy.

But as much as we know about these benefits, many are unsure about how to meditate. There are also many who have a meditation practice but are looking for ways to vary or deepen it. If this describes you, these classes are for you! With this offering, you have an opportunity to “sample” six different styles of meditation. Come to one or come to all! All classes are offered by experienced meditators and teachers. Learn more

portland-retreatsSilent Retreat
Saturday, July 16, 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
This is an invitation to join other members of the Unity of Greater Portland community for a day of silence in community. It is an opportunity to withdraw from the constant noise and demands of our lives and listen to our inner voice, the inner voice of our authentic self, the inner voice of Spirit, however experienced. Being in community creates a supportive atmosphere that allows us to surrender into that silence. Being in silence creates a deeper sense of community and a deeper relationship with Spirit.
