Creative Consciousness

Using Soul Matters material as a jumping off point, we will focus on creativity as a spiritual practice. Our meetings will include discussion of the Soul Matters material, sharing our creative enterprises (yoga flow, writing, painting, knitting, etc.), setting goals, identifying and overcoming obstacles, sharing our work, and/or celebrating accomplishments. We will look for synchronicities and linked themes in our work across mediums, exploring creativity as both a private/individual and public/collective process. Creativity relies on a deep relationship with the spirit; by fostering creativity and building a community around it, we will deepen our connections to our spiritual growth, individually and as a group.

Facilitators: Pamela Huffman and Karen Sosnoski
Meets on second Wednesdays at UUCA starting 10/9
10:00am – 11:30am

Companioning Circle

Centered in loving heart space, secured with grace and patience, a small group companioning circle invites reflective sharing, listening and silence. In time, as trust builds, our heartfelt memories begin to stir; deep longings arise; and inner tensions give way to insights of new possibilities for growth and meaning. Over time with persistent practice, cracks of light begin to shine upon our hidden wholeness revealing our true self, the beautiful self we were born with but have never known.

Facilitator: David McTaggart
Meets on second Wednesdays at UUCA starting 9/11
Email David at dmctagg@gmail.com with any questions and to be waitlisted should the group be full.

No Mud, No Lotus

This group will be based upon the book by the same name by Thich Nhat Hanh. We plan to approach a chapter per month.

The lotus flower is born in mud at the bottom of the pond, and as it grows ever upward, through the mud, water and air, it eventually it reaches the sky and blooms facing the sun.

Most of us can identify with being "stuck in the mud." Whether the darkness has been created within ourselves or imposed upon us by others or life events, we can acquire the strength to not only survive the rough times but to emerge even stronger and brighter.

Facilitators: Michele Palella and Ron Teeter
Meets on third Wednesdays at UUCA starting 10/16

Sunday Spirits

We are a long-standing Covenant Group for whom relationships with one another are as important as our spiritual explorations. In the early years, we followed sermon themes, then found that Soul Matters wasn't challenging enough, so decided to choose our own topics. We last read a book by Karen Armstrong and another about becoming agents of social change. This year, we'll be reading "A Chosen Faith" to explore the roots of UU-ism.

Facilitator: Jean Atkinson
Meets on third Sundays at group members' homes starting 9/29

Act III Soul Matters

With people living longer and redefining traditional notions of aging and retirement, a new life stage has emerged – Act 3. Today, many people in their 50s, 60s and beyond are choosing to add these years in the middle versus tacking them on later in a “wind down stage.” While this new life stage offers exciting possibilities, it can also be challenging to navigate without a roadmap. What possibilities might this life stage hold for you? Using the Covenant Group themes, we will explore how we can best shape and support each other during this exciting part of our lives.

Facilitators: Stephen and Georgianne Sheehy
Meets on second Wednesdays at UUCA starting 10/9
