UU Wellspring, spiritual deepening for the UU soul

UU Wellspring

Good news! The Hartford Area Cluster (HAC) of UU churches (The Unitarian Society of Hartford, The Unitarian Universalist Society: East, and the Universalist Church of West Hartford) will be offering UU Wellspring, a 10-month curriculum of uniquely UU spiritual development successfully implemented in thirty other UU congregations.

Wellspring kicks off with a retreat on Sept 7 at the Universalist Church of West Hartford. Following the retreat, there will be two small Wellspring groups, one during the day facilitated by Judy Robbins and an evening group facilitated by Tom Gervais. Participants will be drawn from the three churches and meeting places will rotate among the churches. Beginning in September and meeting twice a month through mid-June, we deepen our spiritual lives through small group connections, daily spiritual practice, spiritual direction, readings, and other resources. The groups meet bi-weekly as follows: morning group starts meeting Tues Sept 10, 10AM-noon; the evening group meets Thursdays 7-9PM, starting Sept 12.

Wellspring’s practical tools:

  • help us get and keep our balance and put our beliefs into action;
  • challenge participants to experience new ideas on the path of spiritual exploration;
  • provide practice in the transformative skill of deep listening;
  • help clarify a sense of Unitarian Universalist identity and calling.

People are saying:

“Being a part of the Wellspring program has allowed me to ‘feed my soul’. I can be with my own thoughts, and truly listen to others. It is quite luxurious to have a time already set aside that I have committed to study, think, listen, speak ….a time just for me.”

“Wellspring was truly transformational for me…among the most powerful experiences I’ve had as a UU.”

Reserve your seat!

Because Wellspring is offered conjointly, space is very limited so you must indicate your interest asap. If we can’t accommodate everyone, a waiting list will be started. For more information, see the Wellspring website https://uuwellspring.org/ or contact Judy Robbins at [email protected] or 860-633-3348.

Judy Robbins is a retired therapist, has been a member of USH for many years, and for the last several years has offered a program called spirituality and aging.

There is no fee for the program but participants will need to purchase a couple of books for summer reading.
