This is a weekend where you can deepen your relationships with old friends and build new friendships.

This is a weekend to sing, dance, meditate, write, draw, read, talk, hike our gorgeous 142 acre campus, walk the UBarU labyrinth, lounge on the Meeting House porch or do just what your spirit needs.

Like the Phoenix, We Rise:  Strong.  Fierce.  And Wise.       

uuwomenspirit fall18            The writing of Mary Summer Rain in Phoenix Rising serves as the inspiration for this event. 

            We sense the challenges we are facing and at times, it is easy to feel discouraged about the future.  But, there is also a movement afoot.  An awakening. 

            Women in particular are stepping into their power like never before.  Speaking their truth, demanding to be heard.

            We feel a sense of urgency, as well as a desire to be a part of the movement taking place. 

            From the ashes of the old, we spread our wings and rise into the future with the strength and wisdom of our past to guide us. 

            Please join us for our fall event, October 10-14, 2018 at The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center in Highlands, NC.  The brochure with detailed information about this event is available on our website, www.uuwomenspirit.org.  Registration begins in mid-August.
