Seasonal Rituals - Labyrinth Walks - Circle Dance

Labyrinth in Spring

Hello friend

Welcome to the monthly e-newsletter for earth spirit gatherings at the Unitarian Centre. Perhaps your New Year will bring some resolutions related to earth and/or spirituality and/or dance and/or ...
This Sunday will be the Annual Women's Gathering: Not just for pagans, but quite a few of the folk who attend earth spirituality events at UCV will be there, so a good chance to get connected.
The Garden Path Labyrinth should be showing signs of spring any time now. Watch for snowdrop, crocus and grape hyacinth leaves pushing through the mulch. This year we'll be planting some poppy seeds.
You can sign up, unsubscribe or change your email address or choices here.
Hope to see you soon!
