Mediumship Development Group Meetup
Working in the Dark
Hi, everyone. For our Mediumship Class on Thursday on Zoom, we will be working with our intuition and mediumship in the dark. As we approach the season of Winter, let us finds ways to work in the dark and bring light to the dark. This is not about the dark as evil or something to be avoided. The change of seasons forces us to navigate our lives differently in the natural rhythms of seasonal light and dark.
• Mediumship Meetup Zoom link: Please email our church for the Zoom link.
• A minimum of four students is required for a class. Please let Frank know by 2 pm Thursday if you plan to come: Send an email, text message, or phone call
The cost for a class is $10.00 or $6.00 if you cannot afford $10.00. Please pay on our website:
Frank Kotowski is facilitating this mediumship group, which is open to both SCOL members and non members. These classes are to help you build your intuitive and mediumistic abilities.
Beginners are welcome!

Tuesday November 8
Blood Moon Eclipse in Taurus
The Blood Moon Eclipse on November 8 is a magical event. Falling in the sign of Taurus, this Blood Moon Eclipse brings waves of transformative energy that can shift us to higher states of consciousness and higher levels of our soul journey.
A Blood Moon Eclipse is the most potent kind we can experience as it’s a Total Eclipse. It gets the name Blood Moon, as the otherwise luminous Full Moon turns a bloodish red color as it is completely eclipsed by the shadow of the Earth. This eclipsing of the Full Moon causes darkness, something that can influence our energy field, our pineal gland, and can also serve as an activator of our shadow side, bringing to the surface things that need to be cleared.
Blood Moon Eclipses can also have a purging effect, so it is extra important to stay hydrated as our body, mind, and soul release and do away with all that no longer serves.
Uranus, the planet of awakening and breaking boundaries is very active under this November Eclipse. We may feel inspired to cut the chains that have kept us bound and free ourselves from any boxes we have put ourselves in.
Uranus can also bring awakening and surprise, so there is a chance that this Eclipse could bring some shocking news, or may inspire an action or decision that comes as a shock to those around you. Unexpected roads are opening, so if it feels right to veer off course, this Eclipse will provide the opportunity!
It is also worthwhile remembering that Eclipses always put us where we need to be for our highest growth, even if it doesn’t feel like it straight away. Bring some trust and faith to whatever manifests, even if it does seem difficult.
We won’t have another Blood Moon Eclipse until 2025, so find gratitude for this rare celestial event. Honor yourself for moving through the work, and know when you find yourself on the other side of its energy, you will be facing a new chapter of your soul’s evolution.

In-Person Mediumship Meetups on Tuesday in November: We are planning to have an in-person mediumship class on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and Nov. 29 at 7:30 pm at UUFSB but that we need a minimum of 4 students to attain. Please email our church if you plan to come to either of both classes.
Moving to Two In-Person SCOL Services: Our church is planning to begin having two hybrid services (services that are in-person at UUFSB and also live-streamed on Zoom) a month at UUFSB starting in October.
Hybrid services for November will be on Nov.5 and Nov.19. For the months that follow, wait for additional emails with more information. If we have enough people attending these two services, we will continue to have two hybrid services for the months that follow.
At this point, we are not requiring you to wear a mask but you may certainly do so. (Health protocols may change due to changing NY state and UUFSB mandates.) The room for our services in the Religious Education wing has two portable air-purifying systems that will be used during the time we are there.
We require a minimum of four people to attend (not counting the platform workers and helpers). Please let us know if you can commit to coming, and how often, to our hybrid services. Also, we are looking for more people to serve at our hybrid services. If you have an interest in offering a Spiritual Address, offering a guided meditation, or being a greeter, please let us know in an email. Please email our church with your reply or for any questions you may have: email@example.com

Spiritual Healing Requests
Spirit healings result from law-governed forces being put into operation following the sending forth of a thought directive (prayer). Spirit guides and doctors will diagnose the trouble and its cause, attention being directed to overcoming the cause, and then removing the symptoms.
Please set time aside each day to send healing thoughts for each of those listed below, that they may receive from Spirit that which is for their highest and best needs. Your healing prayers are needed and benefit others in ways we may never know.
To request that a name or situation be placed on this healing list, please send a
note to firstname.lastname@example.org
