At Unity, everyone is recognized as a spiritual being. Anyone who is searching for an empowering place that embraces all people and honors all spiritual paths, Unity is just that place.
What We Stand For
Amazing things are happening here!
We are a radical positive and inclusive, spiritual community established in Santa Barbara who are dedicated to honoring the magnificence of God’s creation and Universal Law inherent in everyone and all sentient beings.
We are Unity and we are also New Thought. We teach and model truths that are mystical and reflect Unity, Science of mind and modern day mysticism. We teach a positive message that supports each man, woman, and child on his or her own unique path to understanding the power and presence of the divine active in the world. Rather than focusing on what divides people, we affirm the common ground that unites us all in one human collective.
Unity has many teachings, all of which are taught with the understanding to take what is right for you and leave the rest. We have no creeds or doctrines to which members must ascribe because only the living Spirit of Truth within the individual can identify what is true for him or her.
Talking about the Truth is not enough, everyone must live their life affirming Truth.
