Adult Religious Education

Janet Swanson

A heartfelt Thank You to our members, affiliates and friends who participated in our Adult Religious Education programming over the past year. My hope is that you found the time and space for reflection, growth, and inspiration. Our next series of courses will begin in September 2015. Details will be available in late August. Consider this an invitation to join in the joys of building connections and learning in community.

Our spiritual practice groups continue on their year-round schedule (with the exception of Japanese Crane; on hiatus for the summer).Go to http://www.fusmadison.org/grow for more information. Experience what a gift it can be to practice with a group.

Our Monday afternoon drop-in class "Dance Explorations", sponsored by our Unitarian Dance Fellowship, continues. Gentle movement and soothing music set the tone for group meditation and conversation. The group meets from 1:00pm - 2:30pm and welcomes all ages and abilities. A $10 registration fee is all that we ask for unlimited classes.

May summer be a time of new activities and lively adventures for all.


Yours in promise and faith,

Janet Swanson, Director of Adult Spiritual Development

A drawing of a landscape that is also a person. Our Mission

Our Adult Religious Education Ministry assists our spiritual community in mindful and ethical living by deepening our connection with our UU heritage and Principles, and integrating these into our daily lives by:
  • Developing and refining our own personal theologies through education, action and reflection
  • Cultivating spiritual practices which help us clear the mind, open the heart, enrich the soul and more fully engage in the world around us
  • Building a caring community of seekers
Centering Prayer, Mindfulness Meditation and Insight Meditation meet at the same time all year long. The Japanese Crane groups meet September through May. [more]
