Sacred Earth is the first program in “UU Wellspring Reads,” a six-session program that provides a foundational experience that is dear to Unitarian Universalists’ hearts. Sacred Earth combines the wisdom of indigenous understandings of reciprocity with the sacred earth, and with spiritual practices that connect our spirit to nature. The experiences, reflections, and discussions strive to engage participants deeply in the web of life and your Unitarian Universalist faith.
The work will be personal. As the participants move through the reflections and practices, you may all find spiritual healing by creating a more intimate relationship with the natural world. The sessions, two books, readings, and spiritual practices are the core of the Sacred Earth experience.
Sacred Earth delves into two extraordinary books to guide the group:
- Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer
- The Sustainable Soul: Reflections and Practices by Rebecca James Hecking
Braiding Sweetgrass provides a deep understanding of how we are connected to the earth, and The Sustainable Soul provides spiritual practices and reflections that deepen that connection.
Our first session is on August 7, in person, from 1 – 3 pm. We will be using the two books as noted above, so please make sure you find copies for the class. Let us know if you need assistance with this, we have some funds to help.
