Sunday, March 27, 2016: “The Spring Equinox: Understanding Balance”

Host: Ken Whiting
Presenter: Wendy Koffer(Magic Valley Pagans)

What’s the first thing you picture when you think of balance? Is it a math equation? A juggler on a high wire? Maybe a set of scales? What about this – is being balanced the same as being equal?
The equinox is the day when the night and day are balanced. As such, Pagans take this day to look for ways to renew the promise to ourselves to seek personal and spiritual balance.

As we ask these questions, it’s normal to feel like we’ve failed to maintain that balance. But that perception is rooted in a misunderstanding of what balance truly is. Instead of considering balance to be a scale or a system to manage chaos, or even a measuring stick – what if we think of balance as a process? A way of managing the chaos, drama, stress, and guilt of everyday life?

Join us this Sunday for a Pagan-themed discussion of balance. We’ll cover healthy approaches to defining and implementing balance in your life. We’ll also explore basic definitions of balance, what it means to each of us personally, how to make room for it, and – most importantly – how to give ourselves permission to manifest balance in our lives.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
