Open Circles are small-group forums that allow participants to connect, share, and explore life journeys. As a religious community, we aspire to open our hearts and minds. Open Circles provide a unique opportunity to engage in the spiritual practice of transforming ourselves and the world. The purpose of these groups is to enrich our lives with a greater depth of meaning and purpose. Open Circle practices deepen our Unitarian Universalist faith.

We meet in groups of six to ten participants twice each month for about two hours each time. By setting aside daily distractions to reflect on our lives and beliefs, we share our wisdom and make thoughtful and meaningful connections with one another. We leave each meeting with a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other.
