The Peace & Social Justice Committee (PSJ) puts UU principles of justice, human rights and sustainability into action in our local community and beyond. We organize activities and support campaigns in the areas of labor and economic issues; anti-racism, police reform, and mass incarceration; immigration and immigrant detention; and resisting war. We work with community partners such as CLUE (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice), OFA (Organizing for Action), the ACLU, and the Sunrise Movement. We also collaborate with the UUSM Green Committee on issues relating to environmental justice and climate change. Everyone is welcome to join us in working to heal our world, and newcomers are encouraged.

We gather twice a month to sit together quietly for 20 minutes, to walk with gentle awareness for seven minutes, and to explore the integration of meditation with ordinary life through reading and sharing. Anyone who senses they would benefit from 20 minutes of silent, non-guided sitting is welcome to join us. We have found that this time of quiet meditation and shared exploration can be deeply nourishing – a time of simply “being” amidst all the “doing” of our lives.

If you have questions, speak with either Beverly Shoenberger or Carol Ring at coffee hour, or contact Beverly at 424-235-9002, openmeadowcoaching@gmail.com  or Carol at 310-310-2539, carol.ring.la@gmail.com

Bill Blake will present an enjoyable dive into the who and what we are. This on-going, twice a month classon the 1st and 3rd Monday is presented to help participants master specific meditation skills. We endeavor to answer the questions Who am I? (attitudes and beliefs) and What am I? (essence or true nature). This class will include meditations that explore participants' spiritual goals. The monthly group meetings will also focus on insights gained throughout the month. It is expected that participants will develop and enjoy a regular meditation practice.
