Spirituality is the way we seek deeper life, seek great experiences of life and seek meaning individually. Religion is the way people do this together. Unitarian Universalism is a religion; we seek greater life in community.
But doing this together doesn't mean there is only one path. There might be as many spiritual paths as there are people. Some spiritual practices are best done alone like putting aside time for silence in the morning. In addition to our communal worship on Sunday mornings, these things are also available:
Small Group Ministry For those who work best in groups, there is a group on Monday evenings and another on Tuesday mornings.
Yoga for Wellness Yoga classes at the First Unitarian Society of Westchester are gentle and extra gentle. These classes are appropriate for those looking for a gentle practice, for seniors, for those suffering from an array of medical conditions including arthritis, scoliosis or stenosis, or for those recovering from injury. There is a deep respect for the needs and abilities of each student. Classes explore the connection between breath and movement as a means to develop strength and flexibility in a safe environment and in a meaningful way. Props such as chairs, bolsters and blocks are used to assist and modify postures. Meditation is practiced to relax the mind. Some restorative yoga classes are offered.
Schedule: Mondays and Thursdays 9:00-10:20am gentle yoga 10:30- 11:50am, extra gentle yoga Fees: $15 for one class per week; $12 for two classes per week; $20 for a drop in class
