Women's Circle - Walking our spiritual Journey together

All UUSG women members and friends - join us as we continue to build a sharing, supportive community of UUSG women!
The Women’s Circle Planning Team has organized what promises to be a great series of programs for this church year and we hope to see you all back with us. Please see program dates and topics below and get them on your calendar now so you don’t miss us!

April 28, 2018 Walking the Labyrinth - Facilitated by Julia Friesen & Pat O'Malley Register Here.
Come and Explore the Labyrinth!
This month’s Women’s Circle will explore the history, symbolism, and ritual of this ancient form of self-discovery. Throughout the ages, labyrinths have been used by people of many cultures and faiths to bring more spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being into their lives. It is a walking meditation, which blends movement with inner calm as well as a metaphor for our spiritual journey, with all its twists and turns.
We hope you can join us on Saturday, April 28 from 1-4 pm for the Women’s Circle’s final session of this church year. Julia Friesen and Pat O’Malley will facilitate. After a talk and discussion on labyrinths, we’ll have the opportunity to walk an indoor labyrinth. Come and learn about and experience this fascinating archetype.
You will also have the opportunity to make a free-will donation to help defray the cost of renting the labyrinth.
As best you can, please let us know by the day before the Circle event for our planning purposes, but don’t not come because you haven’t let us know (heavens!)!
The goal of the UUSG Women’s Circle is to extend learning and communication from the Women’s Retreat, and enhance the opportunities for women within the church to come together around our individual spiritual growth.
Guided by our UU Seven Principles, we come together in a variety of ways that help us explore our spiritual direction using programs and venues that are thoughtful and energizing.
This program is open to all UUSG women 18 years old and above, and we would love to expand our community to the younger women of the church. Intergenerational connections are rich and critically important in today’s world! Having us all together will deepen our individual and shared experience!
We invite anyone who is interested to join the Women’s Circle planning team. If you have thoughts or questions or would like to help, please talk to Trish Beckjord, Julia Friesen, Kim McDuffee-Dotson, Rhonda Robinson, Deb Brod, or Maureen McKeough or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
