The 8th UU Principle as Spiritual Practice

Wednesday, April 6, 7–9 p.m. in Nathan Johnson Hall

Now that UUC has adopted the proposed 8th UU Principle, how are we called to live into it? One access point is through spiritual practice.

The 8th Principle as Spiritual Practice is an in-person class that will explore ways to engage our newly adopted 8th Principle as a spiritual practice. The class will take place on Wednesday, April 6 from 7–9 p.m. in Nathan Johnson Hall at UUC.

This is meant to be a space for contemplation, commitment and curiosity, rather than discussion or debate. Together, we will explore what it means to journey towards spiritual wholeness and live into the Beloved Community through examining the 8th Principle and trying a variety of spiritual practices. This may include things like reflecting on the Beloved Community through journaling, and experiential somatic and mindfulness practices around sitting with discomfort.

The 8th UU Principle reads: “…Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

The class is facilitated by Melody Moberg and Catherine Ruha. Participants must be vaccinated and wear masks. You can register for the class here, but drop-ins are also welcome.
