Introduction, Workshop 1: Spirit Of Life: Exploring Spirituality for Unitarian Universalists

In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program

We covenant to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

The living tradition we share draws from... 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 that create and uphold life. — Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association

This introductory workshop gets participants in touch with spiritual moments in their lives. Rather than offering opportunities to discuss or debate the existence of something external called "spirit," the activities help participants recognize and claim their own internal experiences of wonder, awe, and connection.

"Heart and mind" and "body and spirit" are phrases we use as metaphors to try to describe a goal of our human quest for wholeness. The experiences participants will have in this workshop become part of their own quest—a quest to live fully as individuals and to participate together in creating a loving and just world.
