Unity's Five Principles

  1. There is One Presence and One Power in the universe, God the Good; omnipresence, omnipotence and omniscience.
  2. All human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within.  Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently divine.
  3. Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.  Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in consciousness.
  4. Prayer & meditation are the spiritual tools we utilize to align our consciousness with God-consciousness.
  5. Knowing these principles is not enough; we strive to live these spiritual Truths daily.


Spiritual and other guidance at Seattle Unity is provided by Reverend Karen Lindvig, our revered Senior Minister.  Rev. Karen is available for spiritual counseling, and generally schedules meetings on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Her best times are between 11 am and 5 pm.  To make an appointment, email Karen at
