Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs)
The Louisville CUUPs Group was represented at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah in October. Many thanks to the CUUPs members who contributed ribbons that were deilivered to the Parliament for use in the Circle for the Planet Earth. The ribbons were used to send out prayers during the Circle. They have been added to the hundreds of ribbons collected and will go to Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve near Barneveld, Wisconsin for additional Planetary Healing workings in the Spiral Labyrinth and Stone Circle located there.

In addition to community and fellowship, we offer classes. Our classes are a blend of lecture and discussion with seekers, those new to the path, and experienced practitioners in attendance. We host a variety of topics that have included Four Cornerstones of Magick, Sabbat Lore/Traditions, Beginning Meditation, Divination, Herbal Magick and many other topics.
We are currently using a Pagan curriculum with subjects that have included - Personal Altars, God/Goddesses, Tarot Divination, Candle Magick and many others. We are presenting a series of spell classes and how this may be applied to your daily practice. April 6th class will be protection spells for yourself and others. April 20th we will hold a full moon ritual that was designed by the class.
Classes are on the first and third Wednesday of each Month. Each week we discuss topics that are independent of each other so drop in when you are able to join us.
Classes meet from 7:00pm until about 8:30pm
CUUPs is a free and open community of people who practice earth-based spiritualities.
There is no charge to attend Circles or classes.
