PLEASE NOTE: Twinkle’s Place is her Private Homes where Friends gather.

Friends, check back often for Calendar Updates – we will list activities here in Maine, as well as throughout USA, Canada and Internationally! For detailed information about our Moosehead Lake location, also visit: www.MooseheadLakeRetreats.org

Calendar Notes

from March 16th onward:  In response to COVID-19 Pandemic Response to Shelter in Place, All Gatherings at Twinkle's Place locations in Pittsfield and Rockwood (as well as any productions and events for Community Television productions Twinkle oversees, and events and gatherings she has been scheduled to speak at elsewhere) have either been postponed or transitioned to online platforms. See calendar below for links to details.

Current UU Women & Religion Calendar:

  • Mondays – Morning Mantras that provide a single thought/affirmation for our UU Women to use as a touchstone throughout that day and week. The mantra is placed in the format of a digital image that includes a beautiful photo, typically a landscape. With the exception of the month of May when the images are all closeups of flowers as so many of our congregations host their Flower Communion during that month I thought it would be nice to make that as the offering here too.
  • Tuesdays – Minerva Online Potluck Gathering + Ritual (Register for this event here: https://www.uuwf.org/events)
  • Thursdays – A prayer, blessing or meditation. Typically in image and text form, but sometimes also in audio.
  • Sundays – A video – typically a reading, poem or prayer.

The above are offerings created by Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Porter-Manning, interfaith minister and co-convener of UU Women & Religion. We also post links to songs, chants, meditations and intentionally lift up the work of other inspirational women throughout each week. Posts appear on our Facebook pages:



UU Women’s Spirituality Facebook Group – (for deeper exploration of topics, connection and sharing):


Recurring Gatherings: 

Third Wednesday of each month…

On the date of Each Full Moon “Twinkle” hosts a gathering in her home for friends who wish to celebrate with her…

  • RE for KIDS in Pittsfield, Greenville and Rockwood, Maine 
At the behest of Orion, we will begin RE for Kids in Maine on the First Wednesday of Each month.  As interest and attendance grows, we can offer weekly classes and also theme-based workshops and retreat days.

The VUU is a live talkshow produced by the Church for the Larger Fellowship specifically geared for Unitarian Universalists. A new episode is broadcast each Thursday at 11:00 am Eastern on YouTube.  The VUU is hosted by Meg Riley and Joanna Crawford, with Tom Schade, Hank Peirce, Aisha Hauser and Patrice Curtis.  Most Thursdays, “Twinkle” opens her home to those interested in coming to Twinkle’s Place, having some tea or coffee and “tuning in” to The VUU with her!  Then we chat about the show afterwards!

This website is a resource for all of us who are drawn to the Mystical aspects of Life and Living. UU Mystics offer twice monthly Zoom calls for ones so inspired to join in community.

Typically once per month, “Twinkle” hosts a class to broaden the understanding Unitarian Universalism.  Often times it is through uses of online media as she and those present review a sermon, audio, video, publication or curriculum by UU ministers and lay leaders who are well versed in the topics of discussion.  These take place on the 15th day of each month, unless otherwise noted in the calendar. 

Twinkle is one of the founding supporters of The Pamphlet, a podcast uncovering Unitarian Universalism’s hidden histories. The Pamphlet publishes a new podcast every two weeks and is hosted by: Susan Ritchie (Historian of Unitarian Universalism) and Sean Neil-Barron (Self-Proclaimed Amateur History Geek). Twinkle’s Place will share links to these podcasts.  You may also follow The Pamphlet directly on their website:  http://www.pamphletpodcast.org/ and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pamphletpodcast/.
