Creation Spirituality Communities

Creating, Networking, and Supporting Creation Spirituality Communities and Individuals.

Information

6th Source

For Unitarian Universalists and sympathisers who feel at home in the Creation Centered Spirituality Movement.

"Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature."

I have been an active member of our local UU Fellowship for two amazing years and I treasure this wonderful place of openness.I was born and raised into the Roman Catholic tradition but have known for many years that my heart and soul needed more. I think that for me, spirituality is about asking the questions, knowing that answers will always defy our understanding. I have found a place where I feel free to ask questions and feel safe in discussions knowing that everyone there will listen respectfully. We have a sign outside our small community that says, "You need not think alike, to love alike". We often talk about the mysticism of Matthew Fox and Meister Eckhart, as well as Hildegard of Bingham, Rumi, Thoreau, Mary Oliver, Walt Whitman and many more. Revelation did not end 2000 years ago. It is a continual flowing process and we all have access to it. We had a wonderful "flower" communion ceremony today that was quite moving. We've had Buddhist monks speak as well as a former Franciscan Priest, a Jewish Rabbi and a minister from the Church of Christ. We also have lay leaders and speakers. I am excited to have found a UU group at the Creation Spirituality Community. We are certainly on an exciting journey.

I started off in Unitarian Universalism as a Mystical Naturalist and Transcendentalist.  I still consider myself Unitarian Universalist plus much more.  In love with mysticism, creation spirituality, and the yogic traditions, and I am now a practicing Buddhist.  For the mystic all of these things fit together, just like all the courses at UCS that got me in touch with the cores of these many religions and philosophies.

I am doing a radio program and service on the radio called The Universal Circle of Creation Spirituality UU, as well as one based on Reclaiming the Warrior Spirit.  This is the URL.

I was intending to attend the University of Creation Spirituality but it shut down before I was able to.  I have living in the San Francisco Bay area on my bucket list and am considering attending Wisdom University, would like to hear from someone who can comment on the curriculum at Wisdom.

Hi Barbara.  I came to the UU Community as a mystical naturalist.  After an exploration of Neo Paganism and Transcendentalism I went to the University of Creation Spirituality where I received my D. Min. In Work and Spirituality, which changed my life greatly.

Unitarian Universalism led me to the neo-Pagan community, which led me to Creation Spirituality.  While I no longer identify myself as Unitarian I admire their philosophy and feel at home among them.
