This on-going Adult Enrichment group meets every week on Tuesday evenings for one hour of meditation including a reading. Come, sit, listen, and meditate with us.
An open African Drumming Circle for all ability levels.
Yoga is a multipurpose tool for improving a lifetime: the essence of Yoga is nonphysical inner development. To varying degrees for each individual, Yoga brings inner quiet, peace of mind, character strength, and spirituality. We each relate to it and its many physical and inner benefits in ways that suit our individual needs and personalities.
This Mindful Yoga program cultivates the abstract benefits. It encourages a quiet, mindful awareness while doing a full range of classical postures. Postures improve health through strengthening, purifying, and toning of the body, as well as of the nerve, and energy systems. Improved health, self-confidence, and a feeling of well-being, foster the inner results. Although the postures are a valuable tool, their improvement of the body is a byproduct, not the goal of Yoga practice.
Appropriate for a range of students, the approach is sufficiently safe, gentle, and even-paced for new students, while providing depth, variation, and practice options for experienced students.

...Winds of May, that dance on the sea, Dancing a ring-around in glee....
The Earth-Centered Spirituality Group invites you to join in a magical journey to the land of the Fay. We'll honor the fair folk and dance the Maypole, celebrating the beginning of summer and the growing season.
This is a rain or shine event. If it happens to be too wet for the grove, we'll be inside, Maypole and all.
As always, the ritual is followed by a pot-luck social hour. Stay and schmooze if you can.
group meets on the 1st Tuesday & 4th Wednesday of every month
Restorative Circles are designed to help people work through conflicts, new and old, and to restore or heal their relationships. Maybe you’ve been thinking about asking for a Circle, but are just not sure if it’s the right direction to go. What to do? Now, you can get a private consultation with a Restorative Circles facilitator, with no obligation or pressure to continue with a circle. Talk through your conflict, ask questions, learn more about the process, then decide what to do next. Facilitators meet twice a month at the church. If you drop by, one of us will be happy to meet privately with you. Just find us and come on in. Alternatively, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll set up a time to call or meet with you.
If you do not receive Parish Notes by email, please plan to pick your copy up in the Parlor after church. Copies that are not picked up today will go in Monday's mail. Help us save postage and printing costs by signing up to receive Parish Notes by email - just let the office staff know.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a relaxed, impromptu chat with fellow UUs, no agenda, no commitment, just fellowship? Well now you can! Starting April 3rd, and for the rest of the church year, you are welcome to bring your lunch to church on any Tuesday at noon, and join the rest of us as we simply enjoy one another’s company. Our minister Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger suggested this idea, and I am all for it. You never know, there may even be homemade cookies to share! Hope to see you there. -Bobbie Herron, Adult Enrichment Committee
“Putting Neighbor into the Hood” Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger
Last year’s “Love Your Neighbor” rallies were powerful public affirmations of our commitment to welcoming new neighbors to our “hoods” - the places we live. Yet, loving our neighbor, new or established, calls for more than rallies. To love our neighbors, we need to know our neighbors, spend time with our neighbors, and create relationships that turn the “hood” in to a neighborhood.
