Groups & Activities

We offer additional groups and activities to provide members and friends the opportunity to gather in communities of interest. There's no better way to make friends and connections than joining a group. This is by no means a comprehensive list.

Women
Our Women's Connection offers opportunities for women to gather and connect.  The Women's Retreat is held each February and serves as a relaxing, engaging and inspiring weekend for the women in our community to learn, connnect and renew their spirit.  In addition, the Women's Connection gathers the women of our community for dinner three times each year, and sponsors other educational and social activities.

Men
We have several men's groups and we hold an annual Men's Retreat in January of each year.  In addition, our men gather as a large group for dinners several times each year.  Our men's groups are closed groups, but some are open to new members and we occasionally form new groups when there is significant interest.

Mindful Reflection Community
Meets every Tuesday in the back of the sanctuary at ULC. Along with 10 minutes of Mindful Reflection (with an optional 10/20/30 minute sit at the end of the meeting) we listen to video-casts or podcasts about the teachings of the Buddha followed by small group discussion. 

Young Adults
The Young Adult Group offers an opportunity for young adults (18-35) in our community to gather socially and to meet others with whom they might identify personally.  The Young Adult Group holds outings occasionally throughout the year on Sunday morning following the second service.

For more information on any of these groups or if you are interested in starting one that currently does not exist, contact Tina Lewis, Member Director at tlewis@unitytemple.org or 708/848-6225 x102.
