"Caring for the Earth and each other because our lives depend on it."

Welcome!

Gaia Community is an earth-based, pagan Unitarian Universalist congregation meeting in the Manheim Park neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. We meet every Sunday at 3 p.m. Each week we present either a participatory pagan ritual, a discussion forum, or a class. See our calendar to stay up to date with events. We also offer KidSpace, our children's program, during the service.

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 built for our ritual which welcomed Danu, Irish Mother Goddess, as patron of our community for the coming year (until July 2015). We'd love to welcome you to our community!

Learn more about us, or keep reading on this page for a list of upcoming events. You may also want to check out our newsletter, the Earth Healer.

Coming Soon to Gaia Community

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.

Gaia T-Shirt Sale!

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).

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.

Ritual: The Source of All Water

Time: 
Oct 19 2014 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Type: 
Ritual

Danu is our patron of the year, our 'Other Mother' to go along with Gaia. This week's ritual will honor her as the wellspring of both the Irish gods and all of the world's waters. In seeking the source, we refresh both ourselves and our connection with all peoples everywhere.

Since this will be an ADF druidry ritual, you are encouraged to bring offerings in praise of Danu, your personal powers, your ancestors, or whatever spirits you wish to commune with.

KidSpace Involvement: 
Kids above nursery-age are welcome to attend with their parents, but the service will be geared toward the adults.

Ritual for Business

Time: 
Oct 25 2014 - 10:00am - 11:30am
Type: 
Ritual for Business

Our church's monthly business meeting. All are welcome, but only full active members may take part in the consensus process.

Location: 
Ubuntu Village North, 4327 Troost Ave, Kansas City, MO 64110

FORUM OF DEATH (with candy!)

Time: 
Oct 26 2014 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Type: 
Forum

As we approach the turning of the wheel at Samhain, we honor those who have gone before us, and those who have left us behind. We also turn our thoughts to the cycle of life and death itself, and confront our own mortality. In this week's forum, we are inspired by the Death Salon movement to talk over issues about death, dying, and what comes after. To sweeten the experience, we'll also be decorating sugar skulls that can be used at our Samhain ritual, and sharing some delicious candy.

KidSpace Involvement: 
Kids above nursery-age are welcome to attend with their parents, but the service will be geared toward the adults.
