Our First Spiritual Makerspace Service!! 

Lunasa (Lughnasa) is the Celtic midsummer holiday celebrated on August 1st, the halfway point between the Solstice and the Equinox.  Last year, I had the exquisite pleasure of going to Ireland for the first time – a dream come true! On this journey, I experienced a profound connection with the people, the land, the language, the music, the books, the heritage and the inherited wisdom and trauma of my ancestors. Understanding prejudice, migration, servitude and enslavement through the lens of racialized trauma was a profound and unexpected gift of this journey.  Join me as we try to understand our modern American our multi-racial, multi-cultural experience.  A discussion facilitated by Rev. Mellen will follow the service on the subject of Ireland, racialized trauma and whatever is on your heart of mind.

ABOUT THE FILM:
The United Nations estimates that at the rate we are depleting our farmland, we have fewer than 60 years of soil left on Earth.
Can we feed the world without destroying the planet?
The answer depends on what we do now!
The good news is, there ARE solutions. The Need To GROW takes you inside the hearts and innovations of three very different leaders – an 8-year-old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization – a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource-efficient agriculture – and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.Narrated by Rosario Dawson (Marvel’s The Defenders, The Lego Batman Movie), The Need To GROW delivers an epic story of solutions and the struggles to implement them.

Mother’s Day Worship Service, Unitarian Universalist Church in Springfield from Loom Ensemble on Vimeo.

Join us on Sunday for a celebration of the Divine Feminine in all her many forms — mothers, grandmothers, the earth mother, the creative mother in each of us. Together we will call for the rebalancing of our society by bringing forth the wisdom of the mother. We will lift up this essential role and explore how each of us can call in the Divine Mother in our own lives. What gifts do we each have to bring forth in this time? What is yearning to be born from within you? What is calling to be nurtured in your life? What great creativity lives in your celestial womb? As Gaia is bursting with new springtime life, let us gather as people and give thanks for the gifts of fertility and all it takes to nourish ongoing life. This service will be full of LIFE — of song, movement, & storytelling, the most basic elements of our human communities. Together we can see what is being born in this time, and how to nurture our new world. All welcome!

Neva Cockrell is a professional dancer and interdisciplinary artist who uses dance-theater as a tool for social change. She has toured internationally with Pilobolus since 2016 in addition to running her own dance-theater company Loom Ensemble. In 2012, she joined the Art Monastery Project, and currently serves as a co-director of Art Monastery Vermont. Her mother is a Unitarian Universalist minister and her father a Zen practitioner. She has been practicing meditation for the past 12 years, and has found beautiful overlap in her artistic creations and her meditation practice. Her life path is deeply grounded in communal living, body-based activities, art-making, being outside, and contemplative practice.
Mellen Kennedy is a Universalist minister serving the Springfield Meetinghouse.


Followed by on-line “coffee hour.”

 Sunday May 31  “Spiral is a Growing Shape – Going Gently Inward before Outward” with Aimee Parnell

In times of stress or danger, many animals and plants curl up into a spiral shape. Incubation and germination also often happen in this shape: the growing organism slowly spiraling outward, unfurling gracefully in its own time.
As our community begins to reemerge from this period of isolation, let us pause to explore the feelings and sensations that accompany our collective journey from old world to new. We will take this opportunity to savor and  reflect upon the good deeds we have witnessed, the fears and sorrows we honor and invite to release, and the hopes that have survived this upheaval. We will practice lovingkindness to all facets of ourselves and others in the human and more-than-human world. In times of struggle, we deserve to offer ourselves more kindness, more love… not less. Both shadow and light are worthy of love. If you are struggling, this is an opportunity  to practice nourishing self-care in a supportive group. To get your heart beating to the rhythm of gratitude and to find a still, calm point from which to grow and reconnect.
Movement-based meditation will be offered during this service – the physical practice can be done seated in a chair or on a yoga mat. Adaptations will be described to provide options for a wide range of mobility levels.
Aimée has taught gentle and vinyasa yoga at studios and health clubs, adaptive chair yoga at senior centers, yoga classes for beginners, partner yoga to expectant couples, and mindfulness and movement meditation to both high school and preschool students. Aimée’s classes are heartfelt,  lighthearted, and accessible to all abilities and bodies. We will shape our body and breath as a moving meditation and conduit for positive energy.
With a B.A. in Psychology, it is natural that Aimee’s instruction includes elements of mindfulness-based stress reduction, an evidence-based program that offers secular mindfulness training to assist people with stress, anxiety, depression, and pain.

May 3: “Less Is the New More” with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy and Sharon Mueller. 

We’re experiencing that the activity of our lives has been dramatically reduced by the pandemic. On a planetary scale, as we humans are doing less, many of the other species are doing better, the air is cleaner, the water is clearer.  A less complicated life can be a more creative, more connected, more full life.  Many of us have been watching, “Planet of the Humans”, which has given us pause.  Let’s explore the myriad ways that less is more.  Special music by Laurel Green, Steve Crofter, Julane Deener and Matt Meserve (hopefully).

The recent disruption of our ordinary lives has altered our experience of time.  Let’s explore from a spiritual perspective how our perception of time affects our sense of well-being, harmony and balance. Toni is a sculptor, artist. She lives at Tree Farm Campground in Springfield and with her husband was the former owner of the campground.  She is a member of the Springfield Meetinghouse and her paintings are frequent beautiful additions to our services.
