Open Meditation Wellsprings: Tuesdays and Thursdays - Online

These are drop-in groups. You are welcome to join us when it feels right to you.  If you come in late or need to leave early, just do so quietly. These are exceptional times, and we trust each person to use the group in the way that fits their need. 

We listen to brief readings, sit together quietly for twenty minutes, journal and share with each other what's on our hearts. This time of quiet meditation and sharing can help sustain and ground us during these difficult days - supporting us to pause and rest in our embodied experience, as it is. We simply sit together in our shared humanity. We call off the struggle to become other than we are.  

NEW:  We meet every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

Taking this time for quiet meditation and sharing in the intimacy of having sat in silence together can help sustain and ground us during these difficult days. 

Please email Meditation@UUSM.org for the zoom link and directions for using zoom.

Collage Group with Stan Bemis
 
Do you wish to express yourself creatively in art, and yet may feel inadequate or untrained? Do you yearn to make an artistic statement, yet not sure how? Do you have too many catalogs, magazines, and advertisements, and haven't a clue what to do with them? We welcome you to create your own collages with Stan Bemis!
 
Stan works to bring joy and peace into people's lives through creating art. He has taught many who didn't realize they had creative talent, from all across the world - from California to Palestine/Israel. He welcomes any age, from youths to older adults.
 
The goal of this group is to help foster personal worth and empowerment, entering into that holy place within and having sacred fun. The objectives are 1) to create works of art and 2) create cards for events or celebrations.
