meditation mindfulnessClasses focus on sitting and walking meditation, different aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, and how to bring the practice into everyday life. Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself. No fee, but donations accepted. Instructor is Jonathan Foust of the Insight Meditation Community of  Washington. See Jonathan's website for more information and class schedule here.

The UUCA ESOL program provides free classes and conversation sessions geared to adult foreigners who are fairly proficient in English speaking and writing but seek language enrichment, grammar improvement, accent reduction, plus increased knowledge of American culture and idioms. Teacher-led classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Conversation-only sessions are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. 

 ESOL includes an email-based English Writing Improvement Program assigns English writing coaches to those wishing to have their writing reviewed and improved. This is an evolving program that might include face-to-face meetings in person or via the Internet.

 ESOL also serves to introduce students to Unitarian Universalism and its place among other religions. ESOL students sometimes attend UUCAVA events and have even become members or friends.

 ESOL volunteer teachers and facilitators find their participation a joy rather than a burden, but occasionally we experience the need for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in any way, please contact Ric Blacksten (ESOL Chair), 703.980.5899, hricblacksten@gmail.com.

The First Sunday Humanist Hour is set for Sunday, Oct. 7 at 9:15 in the chapel. We will explore the Unitarian concept of principles: "Why Principles and Not Creeds?"  Are we Unitarians afraid to say that we believe in something?  Is there a special Humanist response to this?  The Quotation Project will also be highlighted: please come with a good quote to share -- and an explanation of why you like it.  And if there is time, we will play part of a debate between an atheist humanist and a Christian humanist, talking about why we humanists value dignity so highly.

Small group ministries offer opportunities to connect with others at UUCA. Covenant Groups are the most popular type of structured small group in our large congregation. 


These groups are made up of 8 to 12 people who meet on a regular basis to help one another build community and grow spiritually.  Group members get together at church or in homes to talk about spiritual topics such as joy, community, identity, mindfulness, etc. and may use varied materials such as videos, readings, and poems. These are not intellectual discussions but a chance to share what touches one’s heart and soul with others.

Trained facilitators lead the groups, steering the conversation in a respectful and thoughtful manner.  Participants practice deep listening and speaking from their hearts.  Groups identify a community service project where they volunteer together to share UUCA’s commitment to service and deepen bonds among members.

Registration is required.

With people living longer and redefining traditional notions of aging and retirement, a new life stage has emerged – Act 3. Today, many people in their 50s, 60s and beyond are choosing to add these years in the middle versus tacking them on later in a “wind down stage.” While this new life stage offers exciting possibilities, it can also be challenging to navigate without a road map. What possibilities might this life stage hold for you?  Using the Covenant Group themes, we will explore how we can best shape and support each other during this exciting part of our lives. Preregistration is required.

Centered in loving heart space, secured with grace and patience, a companioning circle invites reflective sharing, listening and silence. In time, as trust builds, our heartfelt memories begin to stir; deep longings arise; and inner tensions give way to insights of new possibilities for growth and meaning. Over time with persistent practice, cracks of light begin to shine upon our hidden wholeness revealing our true self, the beautiful self we were born with but never knew. Preregistration is required.

Email David at dmctagg@gmail.com with any questions and to be waitlisted should the group be full.

Whether you have had previous anti-racism training, or have never taken a workshop about racism, this two-day workshop will challenge you to deepen your commitment to work toward dismantling white supremacy. Participants explore the history of racism, the concept of implicit bias, the effects of micro-aggressions, the results of structural and institutional racism, and the contemporary Movement for Black Lives. Methods include readings, personal reflection, small group discussion, role plays, and videos. This workshop is specifically designed for people who participate in a faith community. It is in that context that we deepen our understanding, our relationships, and our connection with the wider community. The workshop is a two-day commitment. Questions?

A Film for Thought

Come and watch this film about standard animal agriculture industry practices. What are our moral obligations to animals, or do we have any? Do we consider them when we affirm our respect for the interdependent web of all existence? How do we think about livestock when we consume our food? Do we even register the food we eat as formerly living beings? Connect with others to discuss these topics, both meat lovers, vegans, and everything in between. We will be using the documentary Dominion about factory farming practices, primarily filmed in Australia but concerning international factory farming norms. This event is to open up a discussion, not to shut down or shame anyone. All interested individuals from all perspectives are encouraged to attend!

Fences, book coverOn October 19, 2018, at 7:30, the African American Book Sharing Circle explore Fences, the 1985 play by American playwright August Wilson. Set in the 1950s, it is the sixth in Wilson's ten-part "Pittsburgh Cycle" that describes the African-American experience through characters in their daily lives. The play won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play.

Although August Wilson never graduated from high school; this did not stop him from writing, influencing contemporary drama, and advocating for African-American dramatists, actors, and directors.
Wilson's Pittsburgh Cycle consists of ten plays with each set in a different decade.  These plays sketch the Black experience in the 20th century and according to Wilson "raise consciousness through theater" and echo "the poetry in the everyday language of black America". 

This year, the book sharing will continue to explore fiction and nonfiction by African-American writers and include drama, poetry, and humor.  Our goal is to hear African American voices and learn from these African American experiences. 

We hope to see you on October 19. For more information, please contact Linda Lutes Corsoro at lindahlutes@gmail.com or Pat Findikoglu at pfindikoglu@gmail.com.

Please join us for an afternoon of exploring conflict!

While conflict can be scary and divisive, it is also possible for conflict, when approached in a healthy manner, to be an opportunity for growth and learning. I was trained in the approach of “Conflict Transformation” that assumes that conflict is not something that can be “managed” so much as processed in a way that can be transformative. This method has been used in contexts such as the South Africa Truth and Reconciliation process, and in peace negotiations in Ireland. 
We will explore our own personal responses to conflict, look at what brain science has to teach us, examine system theories, and practice ways in which groups can create opportunities for healthy conversations.

Family Meditation Class for 5-11 year-olds

Classes will be held on the third Sunday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30PM in the Chapel.   

The Family Meditation class provides young children with a mindfulness framework to develop healthy responses to the ever-changing world around and inside of them.  

Children will learn how to express their innate qualities of being present with what is happening, respect for others and nature, loving kindness and compassion.  Planting these seeds at an early age can reduce stress as well as sustain and nourish the mind, body and spirit for a lifetime. 


Classes include lessons on basic Buddhist teachings, short meditations, movement exercises and hands on activities geared towards developing mindfulness. 

 

Parents attend the classes with their children.

Middle School Mindfulness Class is for children currently in grades 6-8. (Parents attend the Family Class, which is where everyone - including middle schoolers - begin the session.  This is not a drop-off class.  A guardian or parent must be present.)

Classes will be held on the third Sunday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30PM.   

The Middle School Meditation class offers short meditations, movement, hands-on activities, and discussion.

This middle school mindfulness class explores practices for fostering greater balance, compassion, and awareness in the midst of the natural highs and lows of early adolescence.  The mindfulness toolkit provides the foundation of the class. Investigating the fabric of our inner lives, the causes of emotional stress, and the possibility of freedom from suffering are explored within the spirit of play and curiosity.

WILL YOU BE THERE WHEN VOICE ASKS OUR GOVERNOR TO LEAD ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM? 

VOICE LOGO W/ IMAGES

At a time when we are witnessing deep partisan divides and racial ugliness in our country, on October 21 VOICE will gather 1,200 leaders from across political, racial, and religious divides to lead in making social justice across the Commonwealth. We want you to join us the afternoon of October 21st (3:30–5:30 pm) at Fairfax High School—with more than a thousand VOICE clergy, congregational, school and other community leaders from our 55+ Northern Virginia institutions.

At this major VOICE assembly we will ask Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring, who have both confirmed their attendance, to help us set an example for the country by leading with VOICE in three areas where they have statewide authority: (1) To make our Commonwealth's schools places of upliftment, not lockdowns; (2) To stand up for human rights by keeping immigrant families together; and (3) To dismantle mechanisms of mass incarceration within our justice system. In this last area, we will be asking for three criminal justice reforms:

·Replace the cash bail system, establishing a fair and transparent alternative that protects public safety. The current system of cash bail to avoid pretrial detention punishes the poor simply because they are poor, disproportionately targeting people of color and women. Inability to pay bail causes cascading damage to their lives as they await trial, from losing their jobs to losing child custody. 

·Replace incarceration with treatment for people with mental illness and substance abuse. Roughly half of all men and women in Virginia’s prisons and jails have mental health and/or substance abuse issues. A better pathway to treatment for non-violent offenders would keep at least 15,000 additional people out of prison, giving them a chance to lead productive lives.

·Restore voting rights to people who’ve served their time. Virginia is one of only four states whose constitution permanently disenfranchises citizens with past felony convictions. 

 UUCA has always been a leading presence at major VOICE events, and we must be so again. We have promised to arrive on October 21 with 140 women and men from our congregation, and we are hoping to exceed that commitment. For more information and transportation options, stop by our VOICE table or contact Pat Findikoglu (patfindikoglu@gmail.com), David McTaggart (dmctagg@gmail.com), Bob Blinn (robertcblinn@gmail.com), Jacomina deRegt (jacominaderegt@gmail.com), or Kate Trygstad (kate@creativefacilitating.com).
