Earth Centered Spirituality Service with Frederick CUUPS
The Frederick CUUPS Service focuses on the Sixth Source of Unitarian Universalism: “Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.” I will be co-leading the February service with Robyn K.

Yoga and Meditation Mini-Retreat
I co-lead these wonderful half day retreats with Rev. Carl from the UUCF. I lead the yoga portions and Carl leads the mediation portions. These retreats are a fantastic way to take a break from the frenetic pace of life and reset your mental state. A meditation-only track is available if yoga does not appeal to you.
Thursday – Sunday, March 21st – 24th
Sacred Space Conference
It is my honor and pleasure to have the privilege of presenting at this year’s Sacred Space Conference, a wonderful annual gathering in Timonium, MD, for intermediate to advanced practitioners. I will be teaching All Levels Yoga Friday and Saturday mornings at 9:30 am and The Art of Guising – Sacred Masks and Aspecting in Ritual on Friday at 7 pm (schedule still subject to change). Workshop description: Sacred Theater is a synthesis of channeled energies and planned actions and interactions. Through Guising, or Aspecting, we are able to open the connection to Powers outside our own Self, and then allow those Powers to take a role within ritual and spellwork. Through a series of discussions and exercises, learn techniques to safely channel and embody Powers/Spirits/Totems, allow Them to speak through you, and most importantly, to safely return to your Self. Please bring a mask you wish to work with. Some masks will be available for exploration if you do not have your own.
Friday, April 12th, 7:45 pm

Leading the Service at Sugarloaf Congregation of Unitarian Universalists
I am looking forward to leading service and presenting a sermon for Sugarloaf UU: “Songs from the Earth: 6th Source Practices for Everyone” The river of spirituality carries water from many wells; sometimes flowing smoothly, other times jostling through the rapids. Each wave brings gifts and challenges, questions and revelations. Join Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) board member and Frederick CUUPS chapter chairperson Irene Glasse for an exploration of ideas, themes and practices from the Earth Centered Spirituality community.
