In order to prioritize the health and well-being of our community, the Center has decided it is in all our best interest to cancel in-person programs for the remainder of our Winter/Spring 2020 term. We regret to inform you that this includes our upcoming major program with Sherri Mitchell on April 3-4 (though with hope to reschedule for a later date).
We are in the process of reaching out to program presenters to give them the option of offering their program via Zoom (online video conferencing) or phone conferencing if their program content is conducive to such a medium. Programs that will not be offered via one of these media will be rescheduled or cancelled, with full refunds provided to all who registered.
For registrants of programs that will be held via video or teleconference, we will provide instruction on use of these media. But you will have the option of cancelling with a full refund if that is your preference.
To the best of our ability we will continue to serve as a place for grounding and perspective through these challenging times. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through these unexpected logistical and technical changes. If you have any additional questions, please reach out via email at email@example.com.

Sacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-Based Change
April 3-4, 2020 | First Universalist Church, Yarmouth
The major speaker for the Winter/Spring 2020 term will be Sherri Mitchell, an Indigenous rights activist, spiritual teacher, and transformational change maker. Sherri was born and raised on the Penobscot Indian reservation (Penawahpskek). She speaks and teaches around the world on issues of Indigenous rights, environmental justice, and spiritual change. Her broad base of knowledge allows her to synthesize many subjects into a cohesive whole, weaving together a multitude of complex issues and articulating them in a way that both satisfies the mind and heals the heart. Drawing from ancestral knowledge, as well as her experience as an attorney and activist, Sherri Mitchell will address some of the most crucial issues of our day, such as environmental protection and human rights, and discuss what it means to live in a time of prophecy.
