COMING IN JUNE:   Introduction to Ho’oponopono. UU’s own Kitty Wells will introduce us to Ho’oponopono, an ancient Hawaiian practice of forgiveness and reconciliation. Sunday, June 10th, 12:30 – 2:00. Board room. (Feel free to bring a bag lunch) No sign up necessary – just come. Ho’oponopono is one of the approaches that Kitty uses in her marriage and family therapy practice to help clients deal with anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and PTSD. 


STARTING IN JULY:  Seniors in Transition. The Seniors in Transition program offers a safe and supportive environment where older adults can look ahead to a time when they may no longer be able to live safely in complete independence. The program provides a forum where participants can explore options and make informed choices for life transitions including future alternative living situations and/or in-home care. Having a choice is always important and it is especially important during this time of life.

The program includes small group discussions, speakers and tours of senior communities and is offered in 7 – 8 weekly 2-hour sessions. 

Program Objectives

In a supportive environment participants will:

  • Explore stereotypes of aging as well as challenges and concerns
  • Identify values, hopes and dreams going forward
  • Increase knowledge of available resources, care levels and care facilities in the local areas
  • Develop personalized transition plans
  • Enable conversations with families and loved ones 

Time and Place

Sessions are scheduled on Thursdays from 2:00 – 4:00 pm starting on July 19th and ending August 30th.  An additional session may be scheduled within that timeframe to facilitate visits to senior living facilities.

Sign up at RE table. $25. Class limited to 15. 

Looking Ahead: Stay tuned for another of Bill Stayton’s fascinating classes on Human Sexuality this fall. Linda Lampson and Sarita Hazen will co facilitate a discussion of the acclaimed book. And more!



A Long Strange Trip:

These CDs provide a history of Unitarian and Universalist thought and practice from the early, liberal strands  at the beginning of the Christian era to what we know today as Unitarian Universalism.  You can check out copies of the DVD’s to watch at home – alone or with a group.  Limit: 3 DVD’s at a time with a 3 week time limit. Contact Adult RE committee if you’re interested.
