Meditation Groups

For beginners and experienced meditators, the Colonial Meditation Group is an “interfaith” Buddhist Sangha. This means that we don’t follow one particular teacher or method. It is open to EVERYONE who is interested in joining a practice community. Children and Youth are encouraged to practice with us!
This group is organized by The Lighthouse of Williamsburg using Meetup to draw participants from the wider community. Please join this group for all the information you will need:
Monday Nights, 7:00pm, Sanctuary
Thursday Mornings, 10am, Sanctuary

New UU

The New UU program provides important tools to help congregations welcome, orient, and integrate newcomers into their faith communities. The program addresses the needs of newcomers who want to know more about who we are and what we believe. It provides opportunities for members of your congregation to share with newcomers what it means to them to be a Unitarian Universalist. It gives newcomers a chance to examine their own personal stories in the light of our Unitarian Universalist tradition and heritage. It provides a chance for newcomers to the congregation and long-timers to connect. It provides an explicit invitation to become a member.
