Hello Everyone! I (We) pray all is going well for you. Not everyone receiving this monthly newsletter lives in Sedona but if you do, then you'll know how beautiful and exciting things have been here--given the two feet of beautiful snow that blanketed the area in just 48 hours. In fact, some of this snow can still be seen here and there--even though we're now entering March. Another exciting experience is that my latest book, The Dark Night of the Soul, is now officially released and went immediately to the #1 best seller position on Amazon. Also, I'll be doing a 4-week online course this month on the topic of the Dark Night of the Soul, which can also be attended in person at Unity of Sedona. Lastly, one of the most exciting things of all is that my idea from several years ago ...

Greetings Everyone! It's time once again for us to share our monthly newsletter--which includes the events that you receive in our weekly e-blast, but also a bit more--including this letter from me--Michael Mirdad. I've been at Unity of Sedona now for around nine years, and the things we've been able to accomplish are nearly unbelievable. But to me, they are no surprise, as I've always believed in what I teach, and I've always taught that when we live a life connected to God, all things are possible. As we look back over the past several years, we've obviously seen tremendous growth and change for the better at Unity of Sedona. But now, looking forward, one might wonder what could be left to accomplish. Well the good news is that spirituality does not always mean there are external changes to make. But it ...

January 2019

Happy New Year! I pray this month's e-newsletter finds you well. As you can tell from the high energy of our Christmas and New Year's services, things are going very well for us at Unity of Sedona. We just had our best Solstice Festival ever. And we have been using the recent Holidays as a metaphor for creating a new life--which included using the 12 Holy Days and Nights of Christmas to align--astrologically--with keeping our center and healthy intention.And all of this is being taken to an even higher level through our 4-week "Co-creating a New Life" online course(which is also being offered live at Unity of Sedona for those of you who want to attend in person. So here's a question for you all: What are you doing to bring a greater close to the past--unhealthy patterns, choices, and behaviors? AND, what ...

December 2018

Greetings! Here we are . . . we made it through the losses (during Halloween) and gave thanks (during Thanksgiving) for lessons learned over the past year. So now (during Christmas) we step forward to receive our rewards and gifts from Spirit for all the work we've done to improve our lives. That way, we can (during New Year's) be more certain of having a better life in the new year to come. So let's be sure to release as much of our old life as possible. Anything that has limited your life--especially your spiritual life--can now be released. In so doing, the new life that awaits, is allowed to come forward. Be prepared to experience the highest spiritual experiences possible during our Sacred Sunday Services (each week at 10:00am--AZ time--in person or on facebook live). But also do what you can ...

November 2018

Greetings!   Now it begins . . . my favorite season. It's time for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. But have you ever thought of those three Holy-Days (Holidays) as being a three-part goal in your life?  Let's try it right now. What are you most grateful for this year? Whatever it is, do your best to give thanks and demonstrate your appreciation. This will likely improve the gifts that come to you--symbolized as Christmas. This, then, opens the way for a new life--symbolized by New Years.   In other words, our three-part Holy-Days, are actually three parts of an ongoing practice we can all access and use to create a personal transformation at any time. All we have to do is practice recognizing and appreciating anything good in our lives. This then opens the way to receive new gifts--gifts that are ...

October 2018

Greetings!   Fall has finally arrived. It's my favorite season--given the colors, the cooler temperatures, the promise of a light snow in the near future, and my favorite Holidays just around the corner. Fall also marks a time of change--endings that can lead to new beginnings.   Over the past several years, I've had several dreams and projects that materialized in the most wonderful ways--hugely in alignment with the teaching material we use in our January "Co-creating a New Life" online course. This course works beautifully to manifest changes and abundance in our lives.   However, out of every ten things that manifest, there usually is one that doesn't. So what do we do with these things? That's what the Fall Season is for. It's a reminder to release all things that have not proven fruitful (or are no longer bearing fruit) over ...

September 2018

Greetings Everyone!   This month marks the end of my eighth year at Unity of Sedona, thus beginning my ninth year here as Spiritual Leader. I'm so grateful that so many of you have been with us for so long and helped me to prove to the world that a spiritual center can be created and run with God as our Guide, and mutual love, trust, and collaboration as our principles.   In nearly 40 years of working at several dozen churches, yoga centers, and spiritual centers, I have never seen anything close to what we have created at Unity of Sedona--thanks mainly to all of you.   During this month of September, it's a good time to remain in alignment with nature by recognizing the final gifts of Summer--symbolic of reaping the gifts and benefits of the fruits we had previously ...

August 2018

Greetings Everyone!   It's already been quite a Summer for us all. The heat was overwhelming at times, and one of our dearest friends and supporters passed away. Adding to all of this, nearly every planet in our solar system has been retrograde for quite some time, which has proven very challenging for most people on the planet.   Nevertheless, this has been our most powerful Summer yet. We just completed our most successful online course ever--"Revelation of our Divine Self"--which was also presented live at Unity for local attendees. We are seeing quite a bountiful harvest of organic vegetables from our Unity garden, which are used for our after service lunches. Also this Summer, we had our most successful concerts AND our most successful Summer Solstice Festival ever. And we accomplished all of this despite the usual drop in attendance for ...

July 2018

Greetings Everyone!   Summer is in full blaze and "fire" is the keyword--primarily for the months of June-August. What this means is that agitation, reactions, flare-ups, and so forth will be at a high. So be careful to stay cool in every way possible.   Here in Sedona, there was a big house fire next to my friend's house. There have also been lots of emotional flare-ups for people I know. One person even had an aerosol can explode in their car due to the heat of the Summer in Arizona--which blew a large hole right through their front windshield. On a National level, we've been hearing about political tensions and tensions between Nations--even on a military level. There are even volcanic eruptions going on in Hawaii, resulting in hot lava spreading over miles of land and sea. Also, some ...

June 2018

Greetings Everyone!   We are officially entering Summer, which means it's time to maximize the spiritual and material harvests in our lives. So now is the time to "get out of the house" (and yet go within) and go for a light walk/hike, soak in the sun, harvest and eat nutritious foods, attend the Solstice Festival, and do what we can to reap the rewards for all the things we've set into motion over the past six months or so.   One of the things we were planning to do at Unity of Sedona before Summer completely arrived was to hold one of our member gatherings--wherein we share updates on what's going on at our beautiful spiritual center. But since we didn't pull this event together in time, we are sharing a few updates here AND will soon have a Summer picnic ...

May 2018

Greetings Everyone! I pray this message finds you well.
Last month was such an exciting month--with our largest Beltane event ever--and numerous other things going so well. But last month was also a very deep month--in the sense that a few of our Sunday services featured a theme related to the current Saturn retrograde energy that is stirring things up on the planet. The current few months are certain to continue bringing up deep, old issues, lessons, and patterns for us to clear as humanity moves closer and closer to its inevitable ascension into higher dimensions. Also, a couple of our Sunday services featured the theme of how some of us are "Lightworkers" on this planet and are part of God's Plan to awaken the Inner Christ within all of us. So our Sunday talks were sometimes about what we can do to further our commitment to playing a part ...

April 2018

Greetings Everyone! As we begin the second quarter of the year, it's time to let you know about one of our biggest plans for the next year or so: we are putting it out there to find a new property for Unity of Sedona. It's been obvious nearly since my arrival that we need more room for attendees on Sunday. We really have maxed-out our space in the sanctuary as well as our number of parking spaces. Also, our current buildings are old enough that they need consistent work, which can be quite costly. So please help us manifest a new property through your prayers, donations, visualizations, and overall support. In the meantime, we would appreciate it if you would all continue to attend our Sacred Services and other events as often as possible--especially if you live locally. In fact, many of you ...
