Coming up at UU Basel

Matt Gilsenan

May 24, 11:00; Sunday Sanctuary
Join Matt Gilsenan as we explore in a more personal way the theme introduced in this month’s second Sunday Service: Thresholds.

We will open the Zoom call at 10:30 and close at 12:30. The main event is from 11:00-12:15, but to retain our sense of spontaneous connection in community, those who choose to can show up early and linger over coffee. 

We will meditate over a series of key questions. We will share where we are in the moment. We will listen to one another. Optional: Take a few minutes to find an old picture of yourself when you were crossing a threshold in your life, and bring a story to share.”

Sanctuary is a place of sharing and confidentiality. As we are joining by Zoom each one of us must join the call in a way that is respectful of the private nature of such a group.

If you are interested in attending this event and are not on our mailing list, please email us at before 10:00 am on Sunday to receive a link to the meeting.

‘Leaving the Comfort Zone with Poetry’
Dagmar Falarzik
is our Speaker this month.
For spiritual growth one has to leave the comfort zone. For some this may happen unintentionally by sickness, accident, near death experience. For others it may be intended by using techniques as meditation, fasting, psychotropic substances, holotropic breathing or climbing Mount Everest.
Those who apply these methods are seekers driven by a strange yearning.
Artists have always been seekers. Therefore I want to present three poems (Walt Whitman, Rainer Maria Rilke, Tom Hirons) which describe the extraordinary, the unspeakable, the spiritual experience beyond.
Let these poems touch our souls.
