The Artist’s Way

The Artist’s Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist’s life. Still as vital today-or perhaps even more so than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. (juliacameronlive.org). This class will continue exploring the book together with engaging activities to inspire an artistic life.  New participants are welcome. With Larisa Harris.

Tuesdays, February 13-April 10, 2018 in P1A from 7pm-9pm

Pondering the BIG Questions-Are you curious?

The Greek philosopher Socrates is often attributed to having proclaimed that “The Unexamined life is not worth living.” This group strives to inspire deep and thoughtful dialogue exploring, questioning, and re-examining the mysterious, and perhaps unanswerable, BIG questions of life. Time will be given for both silent contemplation and engaging discussion.

The 3rd and 4th UU principles, acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations and a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, are all about exploring and deepening what we believe and building community in the process.  This is not a formal class.  All participants are encouraged to contribute ideas for discussion topics to the facilitators.

Starting mid-January.  Space is limited. Let us know if you are interested in taking this class and your availability below! We will determine time-based on your interest and availability.

Participants are asked to commit to attending the entire 8 sessions if possible.

Witnessing Whiteness for Beginners

A new session for beginners will be offered this Spring. Please let us know if you are interested and your availability by filling out the form below.

Our goal is to develop a knowledgeable, tenacious, dependable and forgiving SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS that informs and guides our thinking and doing as anti-racist, anti -bias activists. Meeting together , learning from one another, challenging each other, studying together (readings, social justice dvd’s, guest accountability guides of color) prepares us to do the critical ally-ship work so urgently needed everyday , all day long  . Being conscious of our unearned white skin privilege, our deeply rooted sense of white superiority, and how we have benefitted from and continue to benefit from systems of white supremacy are essential to reaching our goal of developing a knowledgeable, tenacious, dependable and forgiving SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS.

All are welcome!

The ongoing class for those who are continuing will meet the third Wednesday of every month in Portable 2 , from 7-9 pm.

Building the Fusion Coalition (closed)

Book Club, 4th Sunday of the Month, 12:35 – 2:00 pm (in P1B)

Session 4) Sunday, December 17 – 12:35 pm:          Dark Alliance

Session 5) Sunday, January 28 – 12:35 pm:              The Creature from Jekyll Island

Dr. King was gunned down on April 4, 1968, just as he was beginning to articulate the need and platform for a Poor People’s Campaign. 50 years later Reverend Barber has resurrected the national call for moral revival through a broadly diverse fusion coalition, and the Unitarian Ministers Association has moved to sustain this new campaign with active sponsorship.

Supporting the New Poor People’s Campaign begins with a conversation about the disparate impact of powerful institutions on disenfranchised populations, including the justice system, establishment media, and our economy. Each session of this five-month guided book club will be organized around the study of one book and one movie which examine dominant institutions from the perspective of the institutionally disenfranchised, followed by a discussion of ideas and solutions through peaceful speech, political unification, and loving reconciliation. Our objective will be to build a coalition bound by a foundational understanding of the daily struggle under institutional disenfranchisement and to prepare our community for vanguard mobilization behind Reverend Barber and the Unitarian Ministers Association in the coming year.
