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.”
We usually have a ritual and circle dance in the sanctuary between 12:30-1:30 pm on the Sunday nearest the upcoming Sabbat (Solstice, Equinox or Cross-quarter day).
NEW! 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.

We hope to plan other events as there is capacity and interest, possibly offering the Paganism 101 course again, possibly in the Fall, 2018.

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 living labyrinth and courtyard paved labyrinth offer a unique meditation experience. Community vegetable gardens sometimes offer some free pickings.
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).
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 rituas and traditions.
