Women Minerva Potlucks

UPDATE July 21st, 2020: When we began these public gatherings online in March 2020, we were the first of only a few online offerings providing spiritual support. Now, with a multitude of online gatherings available, we are transitioning Minerva to once a month. (First Tuesday evenings)

Minerva Potlucks are a time for spiritual renewal and nourishment. A safe and sacred space for women to connect with one another in spiritual exploration. A treasured tradition in some women’s circles that typically takes place at the beginning of each new month. 

To help UU Women stay connected during this time of isolation, in collaboration with UU Women and Religion we are offering Virtual Minerva Gatherings via Zoom!

These online gatherings embody the same elements of conversation, poetry, music, art and ritual as our in-person Minerva Gatherings have over the years.

Upcoming dates: First Tuesdays 7:00PM-8:00PM Eastern Time

If you would like to join us in a diverse celebration of women and femininity, please email to receive the private Zoom link: Register: TwinkleManning@gmail.com

These programs are funded in part, by a generous grant from UU Women’s Connection, and in collaboration with UU Women & Religion, www.UUWR.org and will be facilitated in large part by Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Porter-Manning, Interfaith Minister.

Special thanks to Margaret Stewart, the Matriarch of First Parish in Concord’s Womens Goddess Covenant Circle, for teaching this tradition to Twinkle.

Minerva is the Goddess of Wisdom and Poetry. We will share both, and more, at these gatherings.

We will also be hosting similar online gatherings specifically for clergy and interfaith spiritual leaders. Stay tuned for information about our Fireside Chats, Spur-of-the-moment Coffee Time breaks and more.  Join our Facebook page for alerts: https://www.facebook.com/TwinklesPlace/
