As Parker Palmer reminds us, "Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood." This is how we do it at UU Santa Fe.

UU Santa Fe Covenant Groups
Join with others to enhance your connection to your deepest self, your life's gifts and needs greater than your own. Soul Fire Covenant Groups consist of 7-10 people meeting monthly who intentionally and regularly gather to build a sense of community with one another and to share the process of personal spiritual growth. A covenant group offers opportunities for friendship, spiritual growth, mutual responsibility, leadership and service. So, if you're looking for intimacy (fellowship) and ultimacy (meaning), join a Covenant Group!
Questions To Walk With, Not Talk Through
Soul Fire takes a unique approach to questions—using questions as tools for individual exploration. Questions that lead you to deeper, personal learning. That's the Soul Fire approach.
Experience Our Monthly Theme, Not Just Talk About It
Unitarian Universalists want to do more than just read and talk about spiritual topics. Soul Fire participants are challenged with a “spiritual exercise” each month that relates to our topic. That's the Soul Fire experience.
There is no charge, everyone is welcome to participate in a Covenant Group but if you commit to a covenant group, it's important that you commit to regular attendance, too. To register your interest, click here or discuss with Steven Mead, our Consulting Lifespan Learning Director. About 60 people participate in our covenant groups. Some of our groups have lasted for 20+ years.
“No fixing, no saving, no advising, no setting each other straight.”―Parker Palmer
Rev. Victoria Stafford reminds us, "not in the binding language of contract, but in the life-sustaining fluency of covenant, from covenir, to ‘travel together’...covenant is the work of intimate justice.”
