Living Untethered by Michael Singer
The book you need right now is finally here! From beloved spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer—author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Untethered Soul—this transformative and highly anticipated guide will be your compass on an exciting new journey toward self-realization and unconditional happiness.
Now more than ever, we’re all looking to feel more joy, happiness, and deeper meaning in our lives. But are we looking in all the wrong places? When our sense of wholeness depends on things or people outside ourselves—whether it’s a coveted job, a new house, a lavish vacation, or even a new relationship—sooner or later we’re bound to feel unsatisfied. That’s why we must look inside for real freedom, love, and inspiration. But how do we embark on this inner journey?
“Living Untethered” is the book to reach for. At once profoundly transcendent and powerfully practical, it provides clear guidance for moving beyond the thoughts, feelings, and habits that keep you stuck—so you can heal the pain of the past and let your spirit soar.

Wednesday Night Meditation:
UCM HAS BEEN FEATURING A WEDNESDAY NIGHT MEDITATION ON ZOOM EVER SINCE THE PANDEMIC. THE PRACTICE OF MEDITATION IS CENTRAL NOT ONLY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SPIRITUAL LIFE BUT AS A MEANS OF CALMING ONES MIND AND BODY, CREATING A SENSE OF WELL BEING AND HARMONY AS WE DEAL WITH THE DEMANDS AND STRESSES OF OUR BUSY, BUSY LIVES. IT’S A DOCUMENTED, SCIENTIFIC FACT THAT MEDITATORS LIVE HEALTHIER, LONGER LIVES. THEIR CHRONOLOGICAL AGE IS MUCH YOUNGER, BY YEARS, THAN THEIR BIOLOGICAL AGE. THAT ALONE SHOULD PIQUE YOUR INTEREST.
THERE ARE MANY FORMS AND STYLES OF MEDITATION FROM MINUTES OF FOCUSED ATTENTION AND TOTAL SILENCE, GUIDED IMAGERIES AND SOUNDS, TAILORED TO EVOKE A DEEPER CALLING AND HEIGHTENED AWARENESS OF ONES INNER STRENGTHS AND POWERS.
EACH WEDNESDAY NIGHT FROM 6:30 TO 7:00 PM A DIFFERENT MEMBER OF THE UCM COMMUNITY WILL LEAD THE GROUP THROUGH A MEDITATIVE STYLE. WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US AND SENSE THE HEIGHTENED ENERGY WHEN SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE SYNCHING IN THE SAME VIBRATION.
COMPASSION ARTS is excited to partner on programs for Unity of Central Mass this fall into 2023, when we will be presenting the Creating Peace Reading Circle monthly book discussion group every third Friday starting in September, and A Thousand Ways to Kiss the Ground monthly gratitude workshop that launches on the first Friday of November.
