- Communicating With Your Neighbors – Land Spirits and UU Pagans
- at the Denton UU Fellowship
- three class meetings:
- Saturday, January 10
- Saturday, January 24
- Sunday February 15
- 2:00 to 5:00 PM
Before Europeans came to Texas and before the First Nations arrived, they were here. Some call them fae, some call them vaettir, some call them land spirits or just the spirits of this place. Some see them mythically and some see them mystically, but in our age of hypermaterialism most don’t see them at all.
Whatever you call them, they are our neighbors and it is polite to be neighborly towards them. It’s also wise – we share the land with them and we have a common interest in honoring and protecting the land. This will be a three-session experience-oriented class in communicating with the land spirits.
There is no charge for this class, but donations are requested. This class is “family friendly” and is appropriate for older children. We are unable to provide childcare for younger children at this event.
- Introduction to Modern Pagan Religion
- Saturday, January 17, 1:00 to 5:00
- at the Denton UU Fellowship
Are you curious about modern Pagan religion? Would you like to hear about it from people who’ve been practicing it for years? Are you on a Wiccan, Druid, or another Pagan spiritual path and would like some live instruction to complement your reading and other solitary practice? Have you outgrown the many Wicca 101 books but are unsure how to move on?
This will be our 5th time holding this popular class. We’ll cover the beliefs and practices of our ancient ancestors, the origins of Wicca and other modern Pagan religions, basic spiritual concepts and how different Pagans understand them, the role of Nature in our beliefs and practices, and the essentials of personal spiritual practice.
Denton CUUPS Yule Circle
Saturday, December 20
Gathering begins at 7:00 PM – Ritual begins promptly at 7:30
Please join the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans as we celebrate Yule, the Winter Solstice. Gathering begins at 7:00 PM and the ritual begins promptly at 7:30. On this longest night, we turn our minds to the waning of the dark and the rebirth of the Sun. As we celebrate this season of tradition with new beginnings, new hopes and new dreams, take a moment out of the cold and dreary winter to embrace the possibilities of the year to come.
Children 10 and older who can participate respectfully are welcome to attend with a parent/guardian. Childcare WILL be provided for younger children.
Please bring a dish to share for the potluck after the ceremony. Donations of a dollar or three to defray costs are welcome but not required
