GSV 2020 Virtual Fall Conference: Resilience through Recounting
September 24 - 27
We come together to tell and to listen to one another’s stories, for stories, too, are a powerful medicine. Stories link us in networks of shared understanding if not always agreement. They help us learn about things we haven’t directly experienced...
Events include keynote speaker Pádraig Ó Tuama, panels consisting of some of our best homegrown storytellers, an online variety show, an online silent auction, and opportunities for discussions in small groups.
Gather with us at The Mountain for fun, fellowship, and connecting opportunities.
Enjoy a variety of workshops, hikes for all ages, worship and sharing food together while relaxing in the beauty and serenity of Little Scaly Mountain. Come share a memorable weekend with your UUFA family.
Stay home and join us for the first ever virtual event for UUWomenspirit! Friday evening to Sunday morning, we will welcome the Divine Feminine at home, and through Her, connect with each other from afar. You will be inspired, challenged and delighted by workshops throughout the day on Saturday, in a special shorter format suitable for the virtual medium. We will worship together mornings and evenings. There will be fun new social activities, as well as familiar favorites like Tea and Talk, and of course, Cabaret. So prepare your altar or magical spot at home, because UUWomenspirit is coming to you!
Join us for a “hands on” Cooking Class and Dinner with Wine Class will begin by picking some fresh ingredients from The Many Hands Peace Farmon site, then we will prepare a four course dinner and enjoy the finished product with wine and good company “Al Fresco”, weather permitting. Dessert will be served with Prosecco on the main deck with spectacular Mountain views.
Men of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta gather spaciously for their annual Fall Retreat at The Mountain. Fresh air, open vistas, hiking, time in nature and brotherhood! This weekend promises to be an enjoyable time. The Mountain is following all best practices for keeping our guests healthy during this time. Please see our posting on additional health measures or feel free to reach out to The Mountain directly with any questions or concerns.
To "retreat" in Shamanism is to give yourself the opportunity to become fully immersed in growing your relationship with Great Spirit in order to replenish, renew and remember just how strong of a connection you have with the Divine Nature of the Universe.
