Taking It Home, Workshop 1: Toward a Rich and Meaningful Unitarian Universalist Spirituality

In "Spirit in Practice," a Tapestry of Faith program

Share the "Eight Spheres of Spiritual Growth" model with a friend, housemate, or family member. Talk about the kinds of spiritual practices you have engaged in and those you wish to learn more about, and ask the same of your conversation partner.

If you have children in your life, discuss spirituality with them. Try coming up with a definition of spirituality that is meaningful to you and also makes sense to them. Talk with them about things you do, and things they can do, to connect with the Spirit of Life—things like prayers at the table or at bedtime, or sitting quietly to meditate.

Take some time in your journal to reflect on your lifelong spiritual journey. When you were a child, what (if anything) were you taught or shown about practicing spirituality? What practices have you engaged in as a child, youth, and adult? How have your spiritual ideas and needs changed throughout your life? What practices might speak to those ideas and address those needs today?
