HUUF for Black Lives Matter!
Every Saturday from 12:00-1:30 pm, on the corner of 4th & V in Eureka
We, the people of Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, wish to show our continued support and solidarity with the cause and community of Black Lives Matter. Toward that end, we are committing to having a weekly presence at the corners of 4th & V in Eureka every Saturday from 12:00-1:30 pm. Please join us in holding signs, and being a visible presence for this important and vital voice in our community and country. You can volunteer to hold one end of our Black Lives Matter sign for an hour, with another HUUF member/friend or bring a sign of your own to amplify our presence and voice there. Contact Chip Sharpe for more information: email@example.com

Creativity with Laura Phelan-Shahin MA, LMFT
The Zoom session for December has been cancelled– Join Laura for the next meet-up in the NEW YEAR!
Expressive Arts Therapy, as defined by Psychology Today, “combines psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing….This multi-arts, or intermodal, approach to psychotherapy and counseling uses our inborn desire to create…as a therapeutic tool to help initiate change. [It] is used with … individuals or in groups, to nurture deep personal growth and transformation.”
In a more perfect world, we’d all have access to a space in which creative play and exploration can help us heal some of the traumas of this life, and reconnect us to our innate sense of possibility and joy. Lucky for us, in this world, we have a wonderful once monthly offering from Expressive Arts Therapist Laura Phelan-Shahin as part of our own Fellowship Engagement program.
On the third Friday of each month, 7-8:30 pm, via Zoom, Laura hosts an open (to all!) circle which can include a guided meditation or somatic check-in. Through prompts, multiple mediums, and gentle guidance, participants are invited to explore process over product, and to use this playful and generative time as a way to access their own inner wisdom and guidance.
We invite adults and older-age children to come join us in this healing and connective space.
