October 17th 7:30-9:30  pm    - WORKSHOP  

MONEY as a Spiritual Economy: Do you believe money equals power, security, happiness, or freedom? Do you feel you are a better, more important person when you have more money?  These are some of the myths surrounding money that can entangle our lives. Money has now surpassed sex as the most uncomfortable topic for people to talk about. What would your life be like if you could freely use money as a simple tool to create an easier, more supportive life?

In this safe, fun, creative  workshop we will explore our relationship with money and develop our own spiritual economies.

Decidedly Uncertain How do we balance knowing who we are with being open to change? How can we hold passionately onto our beliefs and values and be accepting of other views? While many religions try to offer answers, Unitarian Universalism encourages a personal search for truth and meaning: a continual opening to the unknown.

A Time to Rest, A Time to Work

 

Is Time the friend that sets the natural rhythms of your days, or is it the

foe to be fought because: there is never enough time to get everything done?

In a culture where "I'm so busy" has become an affirmation of self‑worth, rest can be viewed as something that is only done out of necessity rather than an integral part of our lives.  

I invite you to take some time out of your busy days to reflect on Time this Sunday.

Time to Transform Time         Friday   March    21,  2014

Linear Time controls how we think, and what we believe about the world. It also creates tremendous stress as we struggle with “not enough” time to do all we need to. It is a pervasive cultural belief – but it is only one way of viewing the world.

Jan Ögren was in Copan Honduras for the Maya calendar change on 12/21/2012. During that journey she experienced a different way of relating to time that goes beyond our usual linear perspective. Other forms of time create opportunities and places for healing. We all experience them, but we often dismiss them as less important. Together we’ll have a chance to explore them and see how they might allow us the freedom to recreate our worldview. We’ll be experiencing time through our emotions, our intellect and our bodies. Give yourself the time to join others for a fun, creative evening.

            A Maya Message of Hope for the Future

Story telling, Pictures of Honduras and Meditation 

Friday, September 13 2013

Jan Ögren, MA, MFT  was asked to journey to Copan, Honduras, last December to be present for the 12/21/2012 transformation.  She participated in the Maya ceremonies leading up to the solstice sunrise ceremony, and assisted the Maya Shaman perform two fire ceremonies, one at sunset and the other at midnight.

This experience was a life-changing event, not just for her personally but for the world as we collectively move toward a new evolution of human consciousness foretold by the Mayas more than a millennium ago. This is the age of interconnectedness, which Jan will illuminate through her stories of Honduras.

Along with sharing photographs of her experiences, she will guide us in meditations to help convey the messages she received from the Maya Shamans she worked with and what she learned from the astrological configuration where the Sun, Earth and Milky Way moved into galactic alignment. There really is hope for an amazing future!

Turning Stress into Strength - Part II

Stress: work, family - those gut-clenching, jaw-grinding unwanted moments of change and uncertainty are usually very detrimental to our health. Unless, we learn how to change our automatic responses and create a habit of balance and strength. Using the principles of Aikido and neurophysiology we will explore what our individual reaction patterns are and practice using stress to increase our ability to be centered and strong. Jan will review concepts taught in Part I and share additional exercises and resources.

Creativity: a nice concept or a vital necessity?

Is creativity just for kids and “artists” or is it an essential element for our spiritual well-being?

Unitarian Universalism is often valued as a rational, socially practical religion. But its uniqueness lies in it being the ultimately creative religion. Come join me this Sunday to explore some new concepts of creativity.

"Writing the Stories to Right the  World"

The stories we tell ourselves create our personal realities, just as our cultural and religious stories create the world we live in. We’ll explore how our world might be different today if our Unitarian ancestors’ stories about Jesus had been chosen as orthodoxy 1700 years ago. In honor of the Super Bowl the story for all ages will be: “A UU mascot,” an original UU fable.
