We welcome all who share our values and our commitments, regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual or affectional orientation, or disability.
To the left, you see the altar from our 2015 Yule ritual. Join us as we care for each other during the cold winter!
Social Justice is collecting money for Heifer International, an organization that gives live animals (like cattle, chickens, or even bees) to families in need all over the world. This year we are pitting sheep against goats. Come in to donate to your favored caprid! We'll use the money to buy sheep and/or goats. This project will go until Spring Equinox.
Here is a list of Sunday service titles for as far out as they are planned. Currently, the Ritual Teams Committee plans rituals four times a year. Our calendar will be the best place to read information about these rituals, which is usually available a few weeks before its date. Sometimes titles change during planning, but the topics don't usually change. Furthermore, occasionally classes & workshops move around. Please keep an eye on this page to stay up to date.
7 - Workshop: Weaving
14 - Ritual: Lupercalia (Roman ADF)
21 - Workshop: Storytelling
28 - Bardic Circle
We are pleased to announce that we now have shiny new logo t-shirts for sale at http://gaiauu.spreadshirt.com/!
Check them out - we are currently offering either the multi-colored logo on white shirts, or a white logo on green shirts (but it's spreadshirt, so you can get other colors if you like). We also have a quite capacious tote bag and a lovely green sweatshirt with the white logo centered on the front.
Gaia makes a few dollars off of each shirt sold, so this is a fundraiser as well as a way to show your affiliation with the community.
Please do note that the shirts are not all the same type of shirt, so check the sizing info before you order.
The 2016 Penny Auction nomination process has begun! Go here to nominate a power or fill out a paper form at a Sunday service. Once we have 15 contenders, or at Spring Equinox, nominations will close. From Equinox to Beltane, we'll narrow the field with our annual Penny Auction. Then in July, we'll have God Auction to choose our patron!
Weaving can be a meditative practice as well as a useful tool for magick. Join us to learn two simple weaving techniques that require yarn (will be provided), a safety pin (if you have a large one, bring it), and your fingers (of course, bring your own).
The Social Justice Committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month and usually meets at Ubuntu Village. Of late, the meetings have discussed ongoing seasonal charity projects, or ideas for the next one to come.
Contact David, Erin, or Kimberly if you'd like to learn more, or have ideas for charity projects.
The ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia is a vigorous exercise in both purification and blessing - our version will of course involve no animal sacrifice or running naked around the Hills of Leawood. We will be exploring the Roman Ritual format again though, so please bring or borrow a cloth to cover your head in the ritual space this week. It is not necessary to dress in historical garb for this rite. Please also bring a small item that reminds you of some part of the greater Kansas City area: perhaps something from your neighborhood or from a place that is special to you.
