One of six sources mentioned in the Unitarian statement of principles and sources. reads:
The living tradition which we share draws from many sources including:
“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.”
Monthly Gathering! We are now offering a one-hour earth-based ritual on the first Tuesday of every month from 6 – 7 pm. We’ll be outdoors if possible, and otherwise, we’ll be in Hitschmanova, the room in the basement with a direct outdoor access down the slope from the parking lot.

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 to the natural world. The garden path labyrinth and courtyard paved labyrinth offer a unique meditation experience. Community vegetable gardens sometimes offer some free pickings.You are invited to snip flowers and herbs as you walk the labyrinth.
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.
Join our email group After you attend one of our rituals, you’ll be invited to join our email group for those who are Unitarian and interested in or already practising pagan, wicca, or other earth-centred rituals and traditions.
Turning the Wheel
We find ways to celebrate the 8 sabbats.
e.g. Here is a photo of people dancing the Maypole for Beltane.
