"Caring for the Earth and each other because our lives depend on it."

Welcome!

Gaia Community is an earth-based, pagan Unitarian Universalist congregation meeting in the Manheim Park neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. We meet every Sunday at 3 p.m. Each week we present either a participatory pagan ritual, a discussion forum, or a class. See our calendar to stay up to date with events. We also offer KidSpace, our children's program, during the service.

We welcome all who share our values and our commitments, regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual or affectional orientation, or disability.

To the left, you see the altar from our ritual about the Star from the Major Arcana of the Tarot. We built a small oasis that reflected the image on the card. We were reminded that a pause to relax and refresh on a long journey is important. As we gear up for the busy-ness of spring and summer, we invite you to join us on Sundays for refreshment of body, mind, and spirit.

Learn more about us, or keep reading on this page for a list of upcoming events. You may also want to check out our newsletter, the Earth Healer.

Sometimes titles change during planning, but the topics don't usually change. Furthermore, occasionally classes & workshops move around. Please keep an eye on this page to stay up to date.

Gaia T-Shirt Sale!

We are pleased to announce that we now have shiny new logo t-shirts for sale at http://gaiauu.spreadshirt.com/!

Check them out - we are currently offering either the multi-colored logo on white shirts, or a white logo on green shirts (but it's spreadshirt, so you can get other colors if you like). We also have a quite capacious tote bag and a lovely green sweatshirt with the white logo centered on the front.

Gaia makes a few dollars off of each shirt sold, so this is a fundraiser as well as a way to show your affiliation with the community.

Please do note that the shirts are not all the same type of shirt, so check the sizing info before you order.

Shall we play a game? Traditionally, Lughnasadh includes games of strength and skill. At this year's celebration, we challenge you to play a game that will lead to an opportunity to rededicate (or dedicate for the first time!) yourself to the six Cornerstones we use to help our Community thrive.

Our ritual will be in ADF Druidry format, so there will be time for praise offerings. Please feel free to bring an offering to Lugh, or to any other power, ancestor, or spirit you'd like.
