Are you looking for deeper connection with others and a space within which you can explore your deepest values and your deepest self?  

Soul Matters Circles are small facilitated groups of 5-8 people who meet once a month from September/October through June to connect to others and to one’s own deeper self using the monthly theme as a springboard and lens for reflection and sharing.

Each month, participants receive a packet of resources via email (or a printed packet, if needed). The packets offer quotes, poems, suggested practices, questions to consider, books suggestion, music ideas, links to articles, videos and movies and more. Each person chooses how deeply they will explore these resources as tools for reflection and conversation.

Participating in a Soul Matters Circle is one important way to get connected at UUCM, to get a to know a few more people meaningfully and well as you explore your own inner life.

In September we’ll hold Opening Circles online for all who are interested in being part of a circle this year, as well as for those who are curious and want to learn what they are like:

  • Thursday, September 23 from 6:00-8:00 PM
  • Sunday, September 26, from Noon-2:00.

Check out the September packet HERE, focused on the theme of “Embracing Possibility.”

New this year, we’ll be offering 3-, 6-, and 9-month circle options, as well as chances to choose whether you want to be in an “online-only” or “in-person-only” circle. Other circles will remain open to a blend of on-line and on-site participation, as virus protocols allow.

Members and Pledging Friends, watch for an email and survey. If you know you are interested in participating in a Soul Matters Circle this year, or you have questions, please contact Soul Matters Coordinator Jo Waters: or (530) 414-6941.
