Universal Perspectives & Resources on Mysticism

Welcome!   We are members and friends of Unitarian Universalism walking the path of spiritual experience and growth as it unfolds in our lives.  We come to this website for inspiration, we circulate a newsletter, we explore our experience in our Facebook group, we convene at the UU General Assembly, we engage in teleconference discussion – in these and other ways we find kindred souls who clarify our attention, move us more deeply into our hearts, and show us the way to embody and engage our spirituality in our lives.  Thank you for visiting us and we hope to bring your longings and experience into the web of community that we are together weaving.

1st & 3rd Tuesdays

These will be discussion groups on the topics noted in the blog posts below. Click the date/topic for more information:

2nd & 4th Mondays

These groups will be interfaith gatherings for contemplative prayer, affirmation, and intention, led by Raymond Sigrist. You are welcome to recite a prayer from your tradition or spiritual source. If you don’t care to pray aloud you are welcome to simply come and listen.

  1. Just the term mysticism scares some people. It is really just our search for truth, knowledge, meaning and closeness to God/nature/Source/Force/Divine or whatever one chooses to call IT. Knowing that there are others, who have had mystical experiences or who believe in that which is beyond human doing, is comforting. This community enjoys the knowledge and wisdom of people from many spiritual backgrounds, which for me is so nourishing to my spirit.
