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.

CABOMA jams are held on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, from 2:00-6:00 pm.

Anyone interested in CABOMA is welcome to come and visit a jam.

At most jams, you will find a wide range of skill levels, from beginners to professional musicians.  We encourage participants to bring and play traditional, acoustic bluegrass and old-time music instruments.


Slow Jam

CABOMA hosts a slow jam, led by and experienced CABOMA member, from 2:00 – 3:00 on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, during the regular jam. The slow jam is open to everyone, but is focused on those new to bluegrass and old-time music.  The slow jam is also a good place to practice jamming while learning a new instrument.

The following are examples of song you might hear at the slow jam:

  • Old Home Place
  • Big Spike Hammer
  • Dark Hollow
  • Nine-Pound Hammer
  • Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms

Instrumentals:

  • Red Haired Boy
  • Whiskey Before Breakfast

This class offers a form of movement that is particularly well-suited for meditation.  You'll explore practices that will energize and strengthen you, help you release deep-seated tension and cultivate a sense of presence and well-being. The class is designed to be inclusive for all levels of yoga, from new to experienced. 

Class begins as 6:30 and ends at 7:20, giving you time to gently transition to the guided meditation with Jonathan at 7:30.

This class is offered freely so that no one is denied access to the practices. Your donation helps cover the cost of the room and supports the teacher.

meditation mindfulness

**NEW -Now livestreaming at www.uucava.org/livestream.

Classes 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.
