OCTOBER Y.O.U. RETREAT
 
On October 11-13, the NW YOU gathered in North Bend, WA to explore the theme, "Levels of Balance." Our Regional Officers created a wonderful experience for people to center themselves, trust their inner wisdom, and share authentically. There were a total of 37 participants (27 youth and 10 adults) from nine Unity centers and a wonderful time was had by all.
 
This was the first time we offered a Gender-Neutral housing option and it was a great success! In it were two gender-diverse YOUers, our two Regional Officers (both of whom identify as cisgender), and two adults. Everyone felt included, honored and safe. We're looking forward to more great experiences at future regional events. 
 
GUEST SPEAKERS' LIST
 
We have many spiritual communities in our region who do not have a minister and are regularly looking for speakers. The Regional Board is in the process of compiling a list of good speakers who might be interested in traveling occasionally to these communities. Please help us by identifying appropriate talented individuals in your community and send their names to Elaine Cornick who is compiling the list. Elaine@ElaineCornick.com.
 
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR YOUNG ADULTS
 
The Region is offering scholarships to young adults to take SEE classes or attend regional conference funded by the NGU scholarship fund. Our goal is to support young adults in furthering their spiritual growth and deepening their relationship with Unity.

The Forgiveness Experience Workshop
 
at Unity Community of Central Oregon
Sunday, Nov. 3, 1:30-4:00 pm
 
Dr. Harry Moses, founder of the New Thought Center in San Diego, will be leading this transformative workshop. Experience has shown that forgiving others and ourselves will lead us to change our attitudes, releasing unconditional love and discovering anew our True Selves. Few of us have ever actually been taught practical methods of forgiveness. Participants will be offered the actual practice of unconditional love and forgiveness toward themselves and others, learn to use their intuition, strengthen their creative life, give up destructive habits for good, heal the pain in relationships, learn to access their healing energy, and learn to direct their mind to achieve their goals. Anyone who desires can learn the techniques to forgive the people or events in our lives that act as barriers to our Higher Self.

TWELVE POWERS BANNERS FROM SEATTLE UNITY
 
Seattle Unity blessed and honored Unity in Lynnwood with their collection of handmade, Twelve Powers banners. We humbly and gratefully accepted this gift, but they are far too large to enjoy an ongoing place of honor in our facility. 
 
Rev. Karen agreed that it may be more appropriate to share the banners individually with other centers in the region on a first-come basis.
 
If you are interested, please contact drRichard@unityinlynnwood.org
