Women’s Circle September 23rd! Taize Revisited -The Power of Meditative Chant
The experience of singing a repetitive chant together as a group can be a powerful experience, even if you just sit and listen. Cynthia Spiegel is back with us to guide us in a variety of short meditative pieces from different cultures. They aren't hard to learn nor are they hard to sing. The beauty is in doing it together. You won't want to miss this. We all loved it when we first sang with Cynthia and she is back by popular demand. No singing experience is required! Register Here
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, or Deb Brod or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
