Speaker – Vanessa Fuller- Brown

Topic:: “Earth Mother”

The last time we saw Vanessa was New Year’s Eve when she led a stirring and impressive ceremony, largely about sound. On May 10, in lieu of the drumming circle which is postponed, she has adapted a talk to Zoom. She will comment on the earth mother theme, appropriate as it is Mother’s Day. Plus we are aware of the imbalance between man and nature which is causing us so much grief and having serious effects on the future. Vanessa is a muralist, art teacher, and drummer, some might even use the word shaman. A Mayan meditation might be included.

Speaker – Kurtland and Gaia Davies

Background:

Kurtland and Gaia Davies have spent their separate counseling careers and then their 30 years together seeking answers to the big life questions posed in iconic songs, such as “What’s it all about, Alfie?”, “Is That All There Is?”, “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” and many others. We have come to believe that in every life situation there are lessons to be learned, new ideas to be explored, delights to be found.
During this strange and different time in our lives, we are discovering that spending some time contemplating such questions can lead us to very new ways of looking at the situations in which we find ourselves.

Topic:: “What Lesson Have We Learned From the Great Confinement?”

In a recent Zoom gathering of UU Soul Matters leaders, someone used the term “The Great Confinement.” We liked the idea of using a name for this moment in time that might give it greater meaning, and perhaps a more positive slant. We remember that one meaning of confinement is the time to get ready to give birth. Now we can give birth to new understanding and new habits! We have found that while we have been less social, we have been more introspective. Sure, some days we have just been lazy, or even downhearted. But some days, new and different perspectives have bubbled up and seem to be moving us a little farther along that great, wandering, hilly road to enlightenment. We would like to share with you a few of the interesting ideas and questions that now intrigue us. Please come prepared to share yours.
