UU Humanist Group
“Just because I do not accept the teachings of the devotaries does not mean I've discarded a belief in right and wrong."
Free Thinker's Forum: A HUUmanist Discussion Group
Third Sunday of every month at 8:30 am in Fellowship Hall
Do you ever wonder how we humans got here, what life is all about and how we can best live together with our fellow inhabitants of the cosmos? Humanism has long been one of the foundations of Unitarian Universalism, as stated in our second and fifth sources. The UU Humanist Association “strives to promote and extend the use of rational inquiry without supernatural considerations, followed by compassionate action in all human interactions.” If this sounds like you, please join us! And please bring your topic ideas to this interactive, socially and intellectually nurturing event!
The general format will be a short presentation on a topic of interest to the group, followed by open discussion of the topic. The presentation may consist of a speaker, a panel, a TED talk, a film clip or another format suggested by the ingenuity of the participants. Find out more on the Santa Fe Humanist Meetup page.
UU Santa Fe is Free Thinker/Humanist Friendly!
We are a Welcoming Congregation that embraces all who come with open minds and kind hearts. We value the richness which diversity brings to our fellowship, including differences in age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental capacities, and political outlooks. Our community includes people from various religious and secular traditions―people who believe in a deity of some description, people who don't, and people who simply embrace mystery. We invite you to add your unique outlooks and skills to our community.
UU Mindfulness Meditation Group
The UU Mindfulness Meditation group meets weekly on Monday morning at 9 am in the UU Santa Fe Fellowship Lounge. At our meetings, we practice sitting meditation for 30 minutes, then discuss a short reading. The group is open to all who are interested in meditation; drop-ins welcome. If you have questions or would like a copy of the weekly reading, please email Suzanne Ronneau, or call at 505.699.7781.
Our purpose in working with our dreams is to help integrate our conscious and unconscious selves thereby leading us to personal wholeness and a more satisfying life. We interpret our dreams from a Jungian perspective, relying heavily on Robert A. Johnson's book, Inner Work: Using dreams and active imagination for personal growth. This is a small group with a maximum size of six.

Universalists believe that all of us are going to end up together in heaven, so we might as well learn how to get along with each other now.―Gordon McKeeman (Unitaran Universalist, educator, minister)
