The Emergent Spirituality Group is led by the Rev. Dr. Bonnie Barnard. Meditation begins at 9:30 a.m. followed by the service at 10 a.m.

The Rev. Barnard is an accomplished author who has published several books, including “A Year of Go(o)d,” “Metaphysical Lent,” “Qualities of God” and “Affirmative Prayer.” In addition, she is a well-respected teacher.

Rev. Barnard says, “Emergent Spirituality is an inclusive community welcoming people of all faiths and those interested in living spiritually”.

The idea of ImpulsUS began with a vision team of local spiritual entrepreneurs. Their intention is to provide a community that honors global faith, practicing mystical teachings.

ImpulsUS intends to be a good neighbor to the surrounding community.
Among other things, plans include meeting with leaders to discover how best to involve volunteers in local “happenings.”

The Scottsdale Independent is published monthly and mailed to 75,000 homes and businesses in Scottsdale.
