N.B. UUSDN Spriritual Directors are available to Wellspring participants. UUSDN does not administer Wellspring, but this UU Program is a valuable resource.

“What will you do with this one wild and precious life?” asks the poet Mary Oliver.

UU Wellspring™ is a 10-month program of distinctly Unitarian Universalist spiritual development designed to help participants answer that provocative question. Begun in 2005, the program celebrates the depth and breadth of our rich religious tradition.

UU Wellspring incorporates five elements (see Spiritual Direction in the third bullet) designed to balance a knowledge of UU history/theology with personal spiritual practice and engagement with the world:

  • A commitment to daily spiritual practice
  • Participation in small group community
  • Individual work with a spiritual director
  • Readings and resources for knowledge and reflection
  • Reflection and commitment to live our our values in the world

To learn more about UU Wellspring, please visit UUWellspring.org. Follow this link to see the full Table of Contents of each of the programs. An initial session might begin with a review of the spiritual journey that first year UU Wellspring participants present, usually mid-October in their small group session.

For more information, use the contact page on the website, or email director@uuwellspring.org.
