Twinkle has often been called upon in both congregational and women’s circle settings to offer what is all too often missing in denominations: Spirituality! During Covid she was contracted to host online gatherings for just such a purpose.
For those wishing to participate in a covenant group, consider joining the Women’s Spirituality Group on Facebook.

Minerva Circles: In-person potlucks and Online circles!
Immerse in spiritual renewal with UU Women. Our lives being as busy as they are, it can be challenging to find the time for women to meet in person, but we encourage congregations of all sizes, as well as clusters, to considering hosting Minerva Gatherings. Or Join us for a virtual Minerva Circle.
Molly Remer of Brigid’s Grove offers a variety of programs for women who have affinity for The Goddess. From weekly classes to Red Tent trainings, visit http://www.brigidsgrove.com/creative-spirit-circle/ for more information.
Some of our Districts and Regions and Groups have lead the way and become very adept at connecting and gathering their women together, such as:
UU Women’s Connection in the MidAmerica Region
Women’s Week at Ferry Beach Retreat Center in Saco, Maine each August
UU Women’s Spirit events in at The Mountain Retreat Center, North Carolina each Spring and Autumn
UU Women’s Convocation international events
UU SouthWest Women‘s annual events
New Prophetic Sisterhood for UU Female Ministers
One emerging location is our New England Region where a UUWR/UU Women’s Heart council is beginning to plan our first Women’s Regional Retreat.

30th Anniversary OF WOMEN AND RELIGION This 2007 archive of the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Women and Religion Resolution at General Assembly features Presenters: Shirley Ranck, Dorothy Emerson, Laurie James, Helen Popenoe
The worship service recalls the dramatic events leading to the creation and passage of the Women & Religion Resolution at General Assembly 1977 and the resulting significant changes within the Unitarian Universalist movement over the years since then. It offers a wonderful glimpse at the history of Women’s Spirituality in our Faith Tradition, as well as the group gathered joining in ritual and songs. https://www.uua.org/ga/past/2007/31410.shtml
