Friday 22 March, 7 – 8.30 pm: Earth Spirit Circle – Spring Equinox

Join our informal gathering to celebrate the Spring Equinox, the festival of blossoming and balance. At the equinox light and dark are equal, and we will focus on finding balance in our lives with a Wiccan ritual, connecting with the springtime energy of potentiality, and celebrating with music, meditation, poetry and more.
Please feel free to brings poems or other readings, songs, chants, circle dances, etc. to share with the group.
After the circle celebration we will share food. Led by Laura Dobson. All welcome.

Tuesday 19 March, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Lectio Divina – contemplation for Lent

Lectio Divina is a form of contemplation coming from the Christian tradition. In a Unitarian context we will use the methodology but not scripture. We have decided to use some brief verse to bring us into a contemplative space. This does involve a lot of silence and whilst taking place in a group is very much about your own process. Come along and try it.
Led by Sheila Cass and Sue Cockerill every Tuesday evening in Lent. All welcome.

Sunday 17 March, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Accidental Pilgrims

“We may find ourselves in the wilderness, hungry, thirsty,
Doubting that we should have ever come.
But look around:
We are not alone.
It is our journey together:
A journey to our better selves,
A journey to a better world,
A journey to a more promised land.”
Debra Haffner

Join us for a chance to reflect on wilderness wanderings, in a service led by Tom Grimshaw. All welcome.

Sunday 10 March: Children of Earth and Starry Heaven

“I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver

Join us as Laura Dobson leads our reflections on what Ash Wednesday might mean to us as Unitarians

Tuesday 5 March, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Mindfulness meditation

In these turbulent times we often seek a means of coming home to ourselves, of revealing the natural harmony between our body, thoughts, feelings, and spirit. In this meeting we shall try some simple methods of mindfully observing our inner world and returning to our innate wisdom, so that we can go back to the outer world and act for the good of all.
No previous experience of meditation required.
Led by Mike Rutter. All welcome.
