An online small group exploring our monthly themes
through creative expression!
Our monthly-meeting Creativity Matters group is a chance for UUs from around the country to come together to explore our monthly themes and engage spiritual discernment through the creative expression!
You don't not have to think of yourself as "an artist" to participate. It is designed for everyone interested in engaging your intuition and imagination in the service of spiritual reflection. Suggested projects do not require formal artistic skill or background. All you need is a sense of adventure. Think of it as making room for your right brain to dance with your left brain.
Participants get a packet each month that contains creative exercises to work on ahead of the group. The packet also contains inspirational material and reflection questions related to that exercise.

At our meetings we not only share the projects we did but we also engage in-group exercises together to open up the monthly theme for us in a new way. We don't critique each other's projects. Instead we engage each other's sharing using our Soul Matters deep listening and discernment techniques to create an environment of self-discovery.
New round of groups coming this winter.
Check back in early December for details and sign up.
