All we do is Faith Development

All We Teach is Unitarian Universalism

The Congregation is the Curriculum


We believe learning and spiritual growth are a lifelong process. The Adult Lifespan Faith Development Program at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden seeks to help  us understand our own spiritual and religious journey, deepen our understanding of Unitarian Universalism, develop our own individual spirituality and related spiritual practices, and teach leadership, organizing, and other life skills.  We expect each member and staff person to engage actively in their ongoing spiritual growth.

 

Upcoming Classes, Discussions, and Workshops

Gong Meditation

Mondays at 6:-7 pm
Facilitator: Denise Picard
Where: UUCM, 328 Paddock Ave.

A Tibetan lama was asked how do you teach a child to meditate? His answer was to ring a bell and wait for the sound to disappear. The gong experience is a sound immersion of emotional crescendos accented by periods of silence, listening for the fade to infinity… Come join us as we journey together into the deep space of your interior. No experience needed, just a set of ears.
Join Dennis in-person on Monday evenings at UUCM, 328 Paddock Avenue
