Meditation | Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula


Our Meditation Practice Group takes place on Wednesdays in our Parish Hall at 740 E Main Street, Santa Paula. The group was started by Rev. Maddie Sifantus when she came to serve the Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula going on four years ago. Group member Jim Cole has started leading some of the meetings when Rev. Maddie is not available. The group meets on Wednesdays at 6 PM. In August Jim will lead on August 1 and 15, Rev. Maddie will lead on August 29. Enter through the front gate to the left of the main entrance and come in the side door. Allow about an hour and bring your meditation cushion, if you have one, or you can sit in a chair. The group is open to everyone; there is a free will offering ($5 suggested but all invited regardless of funds). The meeting will begin with a reading and short discussion, with a guided meditation leading us into a time of silence. There is power in meditating together. We would love to have you join us. For more information, leave a message on Reverend Maddie’s private line at the church: 805-525-4620 or email [email protected].



On Wednesday, August 22 at 7:00 PM the Reverend Maddie Sifantus will lead an hour of Singing Meditation. It will take place in the Parish Hall of the Universalist Unitarian Church located at 740 E Main Street in Santa Paula. Singing Meditation is a contemplative hour which combines song/chant with short periods of silence. This is not about performance for an audience but rather the blending of voices in simple song and chant interspersed with silence. Songs will be eclectic and come from a number of spiritual paths including Unitarian Universalist, Taize, earth based, and world sources. Join in this spiritual practice which is suitable for beginners as well as experienced singers and/or meditators. This group is open to all. Free Will Offering. In addition to her ministry, Sifantus is a professional singer, meditation teacher and long-time leader of Singing Meditation on the East Coast. For more information, call Maddie at 805-525-4620 or email her at [email protected].  NOTE: Maddie will also be teaching a Master Class in Singing Meditation at ReGEN Yoga and Movement Studio on Sunday, August 19th at 4:00 PM located at 448 Santa Clara Street in Fillmore.
