Whether you are a newcomer or a longtime Emersonian, whether you are interested in probing life’s most persistent questions or finding out what others think about today’s news, we have something for you here.

Emerson offers lectures and discussions to encourage life-long spiritual growth. These classes are free and open to the public, providing spiritual nourishment to the community.

Due to guidance from the Unitarian Universalist Association as well as our local health department, we have suspended  at-church programs until September. Some learning is continuing online.

The link to join is in our e-blast.

Our goal is not to provide all of the answers, but to aid in setting people on the path to discovery. In the spirit of the Fourth Principle of the Unitarian Universalist Association…“We covenant to affirm and promote…A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”

Recurring Activities

Beginners’ Meditation Practice
Every Monday from 7-8:15 p.m. in Westwood Hall. We welcome people from all backgrounds and spiritual practices. We typically practice silent meditation, but may try other forms such as guided meditation or walking meditation. We are all learning from each other. For more information, contact Marci Collier.
