Formed in June of 2020, the Emerson Pagan Chat & Study Group looks at Paganism from a UU perspective with the potential to grow into a local chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. We will travel through the Wheel of the Year, examining life milestones and other holidays, and creating rituals with our UU principles. If you are new to Paganism we welcome you to join in and see if this is something that might interest you.
Each meeting we will discuss what it means to be Pagan from a Unitarian Universalist outlook. Examining the meaning of our place in the cosmos, understanding cycles and how they affect us, and exploring the various approaches to connection with transcending mystery and wonder. We shall seek to consider how working with, honoring, and learning from the natural world and all who dwell within it is important for our spiritual work of transformation.
With the many organized traditions and solitary practitioners that are out there, this will be an interesting opportunity to share viewpoints and experiences from our many Pagan paths.
