Spirit Play is a Montessori-based program designed specifically for Unitarian Universalists. It is a unique program which follows a set structure. Our teachers attend a short training/orientation before starting to teach, and some of our SP teachers have also attended an extended SP training. The program encourages students to explore creatively, think independently, and develop a sense of ritual and sacred space. Spirit Play is a way of learning and experiencing spirituality in a meaningful setting where every aspect of the class is imbued with sacred significance.
Spirit Play II, our program for first and second grade students, is the second of three Spirit Play programs. SPII encourages critical thinking, and a sense of spirituality through cooperative independent work time as chosen by the children. SPII focuses on the Six Unitarian Universalist Sources: our Judeo-Christian tradition, World Religions, Earth-Centered Spiritualties, Science and Humanism, Prophetic Men and Women, and our own spiritual experiences of Wonder and Awe.
