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 door to 4327 Troost Avenue, the location of the Ubuntu Village Community Center, where we meet each week. We hope to see you there!
At the 2013 Fall Equinox ritual, the community brainstormed ways to make our home (Ubuntu Village, the Troost area, and beyond) better; to help alleviate the many crises we and our planet face. Attached is a document including all of the ideas, the top three ideas, and the folks who signed up to help with task forces for those three ideas. If you aren't on a task force list, but want to be, just leave a comment here.
It's time once again to start gearing up for God Auction! We will begin with nominations for the auction. Nominations will be taken until the Sunday before our Spring Equinox ritual or until we have 18 names, whichever comes first. You can nominate a power in person at a Sunday service, or fill in our online form.
Here is a list of Sunday service titles for as far out as they are planned. Currently, the Ritual Teams Committee plans rituals four times a year. Our calendar will be the best place to read information about these rituals, which is usually available a few weeks before its date. 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.

Out of Egypt -- Gods of the Nile
Continuing our exploration of polytheistic pantheons, we will learn about the Egyptian deities, some of whom we saw images of during our field trip to the museum last week. Come hear the major stories that still appear in modern culture to this day.
The Social Justice Committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month and usually meets at Jamie's place. Of late, the meetings have discussed the ongoing seasonal charity projects, or ideas for the next one to come.
Contact Andrew, David, Jamie, or Kimberly if you'd like to learn more, or have ideas for charity projects.
We will hold a ritual as part of the international ritual described below. We will gather at David and Kimberly's house. Based on the weather, we will either do the majority of the ritual indoors and then go down to the water briefly, or we will head from there to the river (we may go down the trail near their house or drive up to the old Red Bridge). Please dress for the fact that we will be outside and will likely be on muddy ground. Please also bring your drum or other noisemaker.
Join us as we celebrate ourselves and our religion through chanting and dance.
From the poetry of Taliesin, to the Goddess Brigid, whose followers still worship in Kildare, we will learn about the major Celtic gods and goddesses. We will hear some of the tales the bards told, just in time for the upcoming celebration of all things Celtic. Erin Go Bragh!
Be part of the Gaia Community contingent at this year's Blue River Rescue! We'll meet at 8 AM at the Lakeside Nature Center. Dress for mud and brush; you never know what the area we work in will be like! :) PLEASE let Jamie know if you are coming, so she can contact the organizers.
