Covenant of UU Pagans
BFUU-CUUPS (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans) is a loose network of Pagan-minded folks at BFUU. We do not hold regular rituals of our own; we do however take part in leading the Sunday Morning worship at BFUU. We also go together to various Pagan events of interest, such as those held by the Mist Tree Moon Circle at the UU Church of Berkeley in Kensington and occasionally at BFUU, and rituals held by the Fellowship of the Spiral Path which meet in the BFUU Fellowship Hall.
The Mist Tree Moon Circle - A CUUPS Chapter
Meets at 7:00 pm on the third Sundays of June, September, December, and March (occasionally on other 3rd Sundays as well.)
We hold ritual celebrations of the seventh UU principle respecting the interdependent web and the sacred circle of life. This is an eco-feminist, Goddess-centered exploration born in 1995 of the UU curriculum, "Rise Up and Call Her Name: A Woman-Honoring Journey into Global Earth-Based Spiritualities," (which was written by Liz Fisher when she was a BFUU member.) The circle provides a space and time for direct experience of the transcending mystery and wonder which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and openness to the forces which create and uphold life.
This group typically meets at the UU Church of Berkeley in Kensington, and sometimes meets at BFUU, which is up to the facilitator. (Leadership rotates.)
To confirm the meeting location or for more information about the group, call Carole at (510) 528-9310 or Stephanie Ann at (510) 530-1099.
The Fellowship of the Spiral Path
The Fellowship of the Spiral Path is an outside group that meets in BFUU's Fellowship Hall. They hold several open meetings each month.
First Tuesday of the month, 7:30 pm
An open meeting which brings is a sample of what spiral circles can provides. Each month's ritual is led by a different spiral group, so you get a divrse cross section of what the different groups have to offer. Come with an open mind and an attitude of respect or reverence.

Liturgy of the Lady
Last Sunday of the month, 5:30 pm

FUUSF Pagan Interest Circle:The Pagan Interest Circle is a chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS), and a Participating Organization with the First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco. Its purpose is to provide a place for non-Unitarian Universalist Pagans to learn about Unitarian Universalism, a place for non-Pagan Unitarian Universalists to learn about Paganism, and a place for Unitarian Universalist Pagans to practice our spirituality in community. The Pagan Interest Circle offers monthly services in the Chapel at 7 pm, usually on the Saturday closest the full moon. The Circle also sponsors celebrations of two of the eight Solar Holidays: Yule at the winter solstice and Beltane at May Day. The Circle welcomes everyone at all their services.
