Special Speaker Series: User Friendly Metaphysics

Join us for the 4-Part Sunday Series: User Friendly Metaphysics

Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Albert Hasselbeck
This series is produced by Unity Worldwide Ministries Eastern Region to support our ongoing mission of providing more resources to ministries.

  • As support for a minister taking time off on Sundays;
  • Or for a resource during minister sabbaticals;
  • Or for ministries who don’t currently have a minister;
  • Or for a mid-week discussion group;
  • Or instead of a book study group;
  • Or for a study group to provide a four-week theme;
  • Or as supplemental material for a class or workshop;
  • Or . . . You tell us how you are going to use it! We’d love to hear.

We are offering this series based on a sliding scale basis to make it accessible for as many as possible. Once you own the series, use it in your best way(s).

About the Series

Available for purchase as a package to ministries of four lessons and meditations on the scope of user friendly metaphysics in plain English, to include:

God and You? (17 min)

Explore what God is, who and what you are and how knowing you can put yourself on the right track for manifesting your life.

Does God Use Us? (16 min)

Does God use us? Or do we use God? The answer to these two questions is the crux of personal power and agency – the feeling of control over consequences and actions.

Just the Fundamentals (18 min)

Self-responsibility and just what is consciousness? What can you change? What can’t you change?

It’s All About You (17 min)

It really is all about you! However, how do we harness our awareness and power to manifest our lives? We will be exploring self-responsibility, self-awareness, and the levels of consciousness.

This is the first in an ongoing Sunday Speaker Series. If the interest is sufficient and ministries find this helpful, it is our intention to offer a different Sunday Speaker Series with a different guest each year.

About Rev. Dr. Paul Hasselbeck

Rev. Dr. Paul Hasselbeck is the former Dean of Spiritual Education and Enrichment at Unity World Headquarters, Unity Village, MO. He is an ordained Unity minister, metaphysician, author, and presenter, with a passion for expressing metaphysics in current and practical ways.

Rev. Dr. Hasselbeck has written numberous books focucsed on metaphysics, including “Heart-Centered Metaphysics: A Deeper Look at Unity Teachings”.

Heart-centered metaphysicians ask: “What is the nature of God?” “What is the nature of humankind?” and “What is the relationship between God and humankind?” Their exploration is aimed at discerning the fundamental Truths, or Divine Ideas, that ring true for every human being, regardless of time, place and circumstance. As you expand your understanding of these principles, you will begin to experience the world differently, ultimately creating change in your outer life and circumstances. Through the understanding and compassionate application of heart-centered metaphysics, you can raise your own consicousness and at the same time contribute to an elevated consciousness in the world. This new level of awareness is our best tool for creating loving, fulfilling lives in a peaceful world.
