In 2021, we are celebrating 39 years of liberal, dogma-free religion
in the Netherlands.
Our services take place every first Sunday of the month and give us time in the middle
of our busy lives, time to reflect and enjoy the peaceful warmth of community. They start
with a sharing of joys and concerns and generally include a sermon, readings, songs
and music, opportunities for people to participate and discuss, as well as time for
contemplation. We enjoy celebrating the cycles of life together, whether it is through
seasonal festivals, meditations on the meaning of growth and change, or how to live in
the moment, as well as UU specific celebrations like Chalica. Topics are varied, from
lectures on liberal Islam to meditation workshops, Druidic rituals, storytelling sessions,
and discussions on peacemaking, cultural appropriation and the spiritual repercussions
of climate change. Beside our monthly services, we also organize a variety of social events.
About Unitarian Universalism
peace, love and understanding. UUs believe more than one thing, we think for ourselves
and reflect together about important questions, and are unified by the search for religious
growth and a sense of community.
Unitarian Universalists nowadays take inspiration from a variety of beliefs and backgrounds:
Atheist/Agnostic, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, Buddhist, Christian, and more.
Yoga and self-care
Sunday, May 2, 14:00
In this service, I would like to give you a broader picture of yoga. Basically, yoga is a comprehensive system for wellbeing that extends far beyond exotic yoga postures performed by beautiful, young, toned and limber bodies which is the image yoga we are presented. Yoga teachings speak of an eight-limbed path that offers a practical guide to enlightenment, to oneness.
In this service, I focus on the ten Yamas & Niyamas. These are considered ways of interacting with yourself and with the world around you. Unlike the Ten Commandments, the Yamas & Niyamas are to be considered as guidelines to help you navigate self-care and support a more conscious life.
