We are passionately committed to the discovery of the magnificence of the spiritual self. 


In loving community, we empower spiritual growth by modeling and teaching universal spiritual principles.

Core Values

We strive to express the following values to the fullest of our abilities. Together, we work to embody these values in our relationships with ourselves, with others, with the Earth, and with the Divine, which we call God.


We choose to live from our hearts. As we express the love that we are, we become open channels through which more love finds expression. 


We strive to deeply understand and live our spiritual principles every day. We choose life-affirming thoughts, words and actions. We seek to walk our talk.


We can shift how we view everything that happens in our lives to a higher, more meaningful perspective. As we actively seek to transform, limiting patterns fall away, and we are free to create lives of fulfillment and joy.


As we live our spiritual principles every day, we feel the joy of knowing that nothing and no one can take our good from us, and that nothing and no one can separate us from the Divine. We give and receive joyously and gratefully, and we have fun!


Peace begins within each one of us. Peace comes from healing our wounds and fears and becoming aware of our Divine connection. When we all know our sacred worth, the world will know peace.


We are one with the Divine. We know that we are connected with all people and all life. We love and honor all expressions of the Divine.
Please help maintain a “pressure-free zone” at Unity of Walnut Creek. Most people have causes, views (such as politics) and perhaps businesses that are important to them. While sharing what is meaningful to you is part of building relationships, you are asked not to sell or ask for support for your causes or businesses. In this way, while at Unity people can step away from their professional and social worlds and enter a community dedicated to spiritual support.
