Changing Women

“Changing Woman” in Native American legend represents the feminine in creation.  

This mythic figure is a rich and powerful archetype.

Changing Women is an Earth-based spirituality discussion group and women's wisdom circle.

All women are invited to join us for some sacred time on Sundays at 9:00 AM

We are currently meeting on Zoom on first and third Sundays and
in person in Room 303 on second, fourth and fifth Sundays.

Native American spirituality has had a lasting effect on religious practices, especially in the United States. UU Changing Women embraces this tradition as we reflect upon the sacred at work in our own lives.  We are a respectful and supportive group of diverse women who meet to share thoughts and feelings as we travel life’s pathways.  All sharing is confidential.

We begin with lighting a chalice and introducing a theme.  Most Sundays we have a brief check-in followed by a reading from Earth Medicine: Ancestors’ Ways of Harmony for Many Moons by Jamie Sams. Then we have a talking circle guided by questions inspired by the reading.

For each New Moon, we draw Medicine Cards and Sacred Path Cards as tools for examining the role synchronicity plays in teaching life’s lessons.  On Sundays closest to the New Moon, participants are invited to share the cards they have selected and discuss the life lessons and challenges they may be exploring.  This New Moon ritual reminds us of the wisdom sharing of the Clan Mothers as members of the group offer their individual insights to one another.

We close our circle by extinguishing the chalice and acknowledging: “We belong to the oldest religion in the world, and we practice it exactly as our foremothers did 10,000 years ago. We make it up!”
Changing Women has an annual tradition of supporting a Native American cause.

Currently Changing Women are making donations to "Adopt A Native Elder" at

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program supports the traditional Elders who live in the cultural and spiritual traditions of The Dine (Navajo) People. Most live in remote portions of the Dine's reservation. The Program provides food, simple medicines, clothing, fabric and yarns to help these Elders live on the land in their traditional lifestyle. As they have become elderly, it has become more difficult for them to support themselves on the Land in their traditional ways. The Program supports 800 traditional Elders who live in the Northern portion of Arizona and Southern Utah.

In addition, the Program facilitates rug weaving and provides an outlet for sales.

The Program has had 4-star ratings (highest) on Charity Navigator since 2005 (first rating) and has been in existence for over 30 years.
