REV. ED TOWNLEY has served Unity centers in Beaverton, OR, Chicago, Dallas and Hartford since his ordination in 1991. One of the most in-demand speakers in the Unity movement, Rev. Ed is known for his enthusiastic metaphysical interpretations of the Bible, and for his understanding of the Hero’s Journey as a roadmap for our own, individual spiritual unfoldment. His most recent book, Kingdom Come: A Guide to the Book of Revelation was published in 2012 by Unity Books. He is also the author of The Secret According to Jesus, a guide to the Sermon on the Mount. He hosts a weekly discussion program over unityonline.com, and answers Bible questions submitted through the international Unity website. Rev. Ed is the founder of Spirit Expressing, a “non-church” ministry dedicated to exploring the creative process through which we are called upon to bring a new dimension of spiritual consciousness into manifestation. Spirit Expressing is currently offering weekly classes in the Hartford area based on Townley’s book, as well as monthly social and spiritual gatherings. Future plans include concerts, theater pieces and other expressions of creative energy.
