Earth Spirituality

The living tradition which we share draws from many sources:

“Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions
which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct
us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.”

Honouring the sixth source in our statement of religious sources (earth-centred traditions), some Unitarians celebrate “turning the wheel” through the seasons.

Our buildings and grounds offer many opportunities to experience the awe and wonder of nature. From the sanctuary, you can see outside; the living labyrinth and courtyard paved labyrinth offer a unique meditation experience; the community vegetable gardens offer some free pickings.

We often plan gatherings open to all to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes.

Louise Bunn, a member of our congregation, co-wrote a curriculum especially for Unitarians called Paganism 101. People who have taken the course have often formed a small group to continue their learning and connection. This past year we enjoyed maypole dancing for May Day (Beltane).

 

Here is information from the UUA about pagans and Unitarians.
