Story telling, Pictures of Honduras and Meditation
Jan Ogren was asked to journey to Copan, Honduras last December to be present for the for 12/21/2012 transformation. She participated in the Maya ceremonies leading up to and including the Solstice sunrise ceremony and two fire ceremonies. 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
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 direct

April 21rst Sunday 11:00 a.m. Being Decidedly Uncertain www.uunorthbay.org
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. This morning we'll explore some tools to help on life's continually uncertain journey as UUFNB sets a certain course for an unknown 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. www.uuclc.org

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.
