Unity of Santa Rosa welcomes a very special guest on Sunday, March 14, 2021. Dr. Paul Hasselbeck is a rock star in the Unity movement, widely regarded as one of the leading authorities on metaphysics. He is the author of eight books, including Heart-centered Metaphysics: A Deeper Look at Unity Teaching, the main text for the teaching of metaphysics by Unity Spiritual Institute. For ten years he was dean of instruction for the Spiritual Education and Enrichment program. He has also written extensively about the 12 Powers, interpreting the original concepts of Charles Fillmore for modern readers. An ordained Unity minister, Paul continues to teach and speak around the country and internationally, challenging students with a lively and engaging style and an infectious enthusiasm.
He publishes online “The Absolute Word,” a reconstruction of Daily Word using oneness language to better align with what he believes is Unity’s fundamental belief that there is no separation between the individual and the divine.
“Metaphysics,” says Paul, “Is a fancy term for the branch of philosophy that is concerned with the fundamental nature of reality and Beingness.”
Paul will bring his joyful and passionate presence to our service on Sunday, followed by a “Metaphysical Romp,” an interactive trip through metaphysical premises, principles and laws. Paul makes an often difficult subject impossibly fun. Prepare to have your mind blown.
