Unity Center of Peace Presentation
Lightening Up with Rev. Rosemary C. Hyde, Ph.D.
“Lightening up” The word “Lent” comes from a Latin word for “Lengthening,” describing the blessed return to longer days that marks March and April. In addition to the returning Light, it is also an ideal time to “lighten up” our lives — a chance to do some “Spring Cleaning.” In this lively session, we’ll playfully explore the ways in which we can use this 6 week period of “Lightening” (in all its possible meanings) to move toward the light and happy life of our dreams.

NOTE: All our events are free but sometimes we are crowded for our weekend live music so now you will be able to get a preferred reserved seating by simply pre-purchasing $10 in beverages and/or food. There is a link under each event (see “Evening Presentations & Music” at top of this page) where you can use PayPal or your credit or debit card thru Paypal. All other seats will be on a first come/first serve basis.
The Oasis is located in downtown Carrboro inside the Carr Mill Mall (behind Weaver Street Market between Elmo’s and Panzanella). With its 14-foot ceilings, polished wood floors, handcrafted decor, large windows and double glass doors opening into the broad hallway, it is one of the most beautiful and uplifting gathering spots in the area. In addition to tables and cushioned chairs, there is seating on pillows on the floor of a raised-platform area (shoes-optional). And yes there is plenty of free on-site parking and wifi!
During the daytime hours, The Oasis operates as a traditional coffee/cafe/tea/wine lounge, serving the finest organic coffee, teas, and wines, and delicious pastries, and vegetarian meals. Come alone or with friends and enjoy the relaxing environment.
At night, The Oasis transforms into an environment of entertainment, connections and inspiration. Several nights a week, we host free presentations (7:00-8:00pm) on life-affirming topics (holistic health, environmental issues, indigenous wisdom, sustainability, etc.) where like-minded people can gather. On weekend nights we have Spiritual Cinema Night and live acoustic music with local and regional artists. All our events are free. (The Oasis is also available to rent for presentations, meetings, workshops, parties, etc.)
