Overview: The Honoring Our Past, Creating Our Future process brings the entire Unity North Spiritual Center community together to share their story and to begin to see the ways they have created identity, continuity, meaning, and purpose as they orient themselves to present circumstances and future possibilities. The process supports them in becoming aware of how their story has been compelling, limiting, wounding—or freeing. By understanding their story as the rich framework for their life orientation, the Unity North Spiritual Center community discovers that they are greater than their story.
