Twice Monthly Sunday Gathering ~ The Self-Realization Community
Led by Rev. Carol Richardson
The Self-Realization Community invites you to join us on a journey towards Self-Realization.
We practice integral yoga; a lifestyle which lives and serves in the world, but which practices various forms of yoga to achieve union with the Divine Source of all that is. We lovingly seek the Source of Truth in its highest forms; following the spiritual principles present at the mystical level of all the world’s great religions.
We seek guidance from Ascended masters such as Buddha, Jesus, Mother Mary, Lady Kwan Yin, and Paramahansa Yogananda, seeking to elevate our consciousness to the highest levels of Enlightenment and Self-Realization. We also honor angels and Archangels and the service they provide to all life.
During our gatherings we celebrate our One Divine Life with singing, dancing, meditating, praying, learning, giving, and serving.
We will gather there on the first and third Sundays of the month at 10 a.m.
The Self-Realization Community Vision:
We are a universal community of consciously evolving beings who welcome others to join us on the path of Self-Realization through practicing spiritual disciplines, nonattachment to form, and the embodiment of unconditional Love for all life.
The Self-Realization Community Mission:
To empower one another together on the path of Union with the Divine through choosing to be and to become the Presence of Divine Love, to live by the Light of Divine Wisdom, and to celebrate in the freedom of Divine Laughter.
Specifically, we blend four religious traditions to guide us on our paths:
Buddhism – the path of non-attachment as the path to inner peace and serenity, Vedanta Hinduism – the path to Self-Realization through unconditional love, Judeo-Christian traditions – loving the Divine with one’s whole self & loving one’s neighbor as one’s Self, and
Tantra – honoring the Sacred Feminine in harmony with the Sacred Masculine & sacredness in all life.
Our Founder: Rev. Carol Richardson, known as Nonnie, has been blessed by Ascended Masters of various faith traditions to serve as the Guru-Doula whose purpose is to empower each of us to give birth to the Divine within ourselves, individually and together. She is an Ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and holds a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University Divinity School in addition to degrees in psychology and public health.
Gathering: At Soul Source 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., light refreshments 11:30 till 12:00
Love Offering Appreciated
