UU Santa Fe is a Freethinker/Humanist Friendly Community!
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.
Freethinker's Forum: A HUUmanist Discussion Group—Online.
Third Sundays at 8:30 am MT. Find out more on the Santa Fe Freethinkers Meetup page. We begin our gatherings with 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.
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 "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!
Secular Alliance—Online. Discussion and activism. Third Sundays at noon MT. Find out more on the Santa Fe Freethinkers Meetup page.

T'ai Chi Chih—Online.
Weekly Tuesdays, 10 am, online and in-person. Led by certified T'ai Chi Chih instructor, Jim Eagle.
T’ai Chi Chih consists of nineteen movements and one pose intended to generate, circulate and balance the body’s life energy, which the Chinese call Chi. It is a modern movement form with roots in the Qi Gong and T’ai Chi Chuan traditions. A goal of this class is to develop the ability to move through the T’ai Chi Chih forms with a focused awareness and with minimal physical effort. This takes practice, but T’ai Chi Chih practitioners have reported improvements in balance, flexibility, strength, plus a deeper sense of well-being.
UU Mindfulness Meditation
The UU Mindfulness Meditation group meets weekly on Monday at 9:30 am online and in-person. 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. New participants are welcome. If joining on Zoom please email Sandra at email@example.com for sign-in information.
Would you like to be in a small Zoom of creative, fun people who explore realms of creativity together? We meet every month, third Thursday from 1-3 pm, September 2022 through June 2023. You don't have to be an artist, this is not an art class, and there are no critiques―we share, encourage, appreciate and support. We follow the national UU Creativity Matters program themes and prompts, which encourages all kinds of creativity―ideas, drawing and painting, writing, music, skits, exercises and games. Led by Jill Cowley.
We value mindfulness practice, mutual support and sharing and diversity.
UU Santa Fe hosts the Desert Rain Sangha, a Buddhist community on our campus―they are independent of UU Santa Fe. All are welcome!
About Desert Rain Sangha—Online and in Fellowship Hall
We are a community practicing in the tradition of our teacher the Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh.
