A group meeting on the first and third Sundays of every month. Open to all pagan paths, and those interested in learning more about paganism.
We are the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans at the University Unitarian Universalist Society. We are a ley-led group founded in order to support the study, practice and practitioners of pagan and earth-centered religions and spiritualities. We exist in order to provide a safe meeting space and open forum for members of our church and members of the community at large who wish to practice or learn more about pagan and earth-centered paths. This includes all types of pagan paths from Wicca to Druidry, from Asatru to Stregheria, from Taoism to Buhhdism and many many more. NO PERSON IS EXCLUDED. Any person, regardless of age, gender, sexual-orientation, or religious affiliation is welcome within our space and one does not need to be a member of UUUS to be a member of CUUPS. We also work to provide public rituals and workshops created by our members and yes, we are child-friendly! Hail and Welcome!
Mission: To promote the study and practice of all pagan and earth-centered spiritualities and religions that are in accordance with the principles of Unitarian Universalism in the greater Orlando area.

[03/19/16] A blessed Equinox to everyone!
It's that time again!
To make your Brighid's Cross, you'll need straw, reeds, or construction paper -- if you're using plant material like straw or reeds, you'll want to soak it overnight so it's pliable when you go to make your Cross. Your end result will be about the length of one piece of your material -- in other words, a bundle of 12" reeds will yield a Brighid's Cross just slightly longer than 12".
** Note: for a super-easy, kid-friendly edition of this project, use pipe cleaners.

Brighid's Cross, Steps 1 & 2

Start by bending two pieces to form the base of your Brighid's Cross. Photo Credit: Image © Patti Wigington 2007
To begin, you'll form a base for your Cross by bending two pieces of straw in their middles to create a pair of loops -- in fact, you'll do this with each piece as you make your Cross. Link the two pieces together at their centers, as shown in Figure 1.
Next, turn these two pieces so they lie flat, and at a right angle to one another, as shown in Figure 2. This basic two-piece unit is the base for the rest of the Cross, and it's the only time you'll have two pieces hooked together in the middles like this.

Next, bend a third piece of straw in half, and loop it over one of your two base pieces, as indicated in Figure 3. Both legs of the loop in the new piece will pass over both legs of the base piece. Pull this third piece tight to hold it in place.

Take a fourth piece, and bend it in half as you've done with the others. Loop this one over the legs of the piece you added in Step 3. You should now have four pieces, each pointing in a different direction, as shown in Figure 4.

Brighid's Cross Step 5

Continue looping pieces in the same manner until your Brighid's Cross is the size you want. Photo Credit: Image © Patti Wigington
Finally, you'll continue looping pieces over one another (see Figure 5)as you did in the last step, until your cross reaches the size you want. Each piece loops over the previous one. When you're all done, use a piece of string, ribbon, or even another bit of straw to secure the four ends. Trim off excess pieces.

patheos.com In our modern sensibilities, God is the fundamental construct for Divinity; the Goddess typically doesn’t even make the list. You may ask yourself: why does this matter? What do we gain from a feminine concept of the Divine?

Our meeting last night on totems was great! Many in the group were able to make contact with their totem during meditation and some were able to find theirs for the first time.
Did you know that the terms "totem" and "spirit animal" are often used interchangeably? Have you searched for your totem or spirit animal? Do you have questions about how to go about it? Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.
Here's to blossoming relationships all around with your totems!

The shamans tree is a portal beyond time and space.
