Gender Identity Workshop, Thursday, Sept. 21, 6:00pm

Moonspirit CUUPs Presents

Gender Identity Workshop with

Brianne Raven Wolf 

Brianne will be giving a presentation about gender non-conforming people, going beyond what many may conceive as being exclusively about the LGBTQ community. Everybody has probably had at least one experience with a gender non-conforming person without even knowing it. Raven Wolf will be discussing pronouns as well – what you may want to ask if you don’t know – without offending anyone.

Thursday, September 21 at 6pm

UUWC Social Hall

Admission is free, but love offerings will be welcome.

Brianne (Bri) Raven Wolf is a senior, Pagan, Witch, Transwoman, an active member of Circle Sanctuary Pagan Church & Community outside of Barneveld, WI. She also is an active volunteer with Pagan Spirit Gathering (PSG). At PSG 2017 Bri became the very first Pagan Transwoman to have the new “Senioring Rite of Passage”, created by Selena Fox with Bri’s input to honor senior Pagans who are gender non-conforming. She is an active member of The Free Congregation of Sauk County, a UUA Fellowship in Sauk City, WI.

The presentation will be followed by discussion, a short break, then a New Moon ritual for those who want to stay.  Snacks will be provided.

Women’s Spirituality Group, Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00pm

Women’s Spirituality Group

The Women’s Spirituality Group gathered for their planning meeting to discuss where to go next.  Several suggestions were offered and the group chose to go with a video entitled

a one-woman play written and performed by

Carol Lynn Pearson

From the cover…

“Sixteen women from history speak their lives, a paleolithic woman, an Egyptian priestess, a biblical woman, a Gnostic woman, a medieval witch, a Shaker deaconess, and others.  Their dramatic stories show that the human family has always longed for its Mother in Heaven, has often exiled her, and is now inviting her to come home.”

The group is currently planning to spread out the viewing of the video over the next 6 weeks to allow for inspired discussion.

There is still time to participate in this event, please contact Rev. Nancy, 505-896-8182, if you can attend, or if you cannot but still wish to obtain this information and become a member.
