Charleston Chapter of The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans
SOCIETY OF LOWCOUNTRY SPIRITUAL TRADITIONS COMMUNION WITH THE EARTH
S.O.L.S.T.I.C.E. C.U.U.P.s is a gathering where many different Earth-based spiritual paths cross. The wealth of experience and lessons of these paths are shared to enrich our lives and provide information to the community. Together we explore the spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
Founded in 1995 and known by different names over the years, we are many things, but, perhaps, most of all we are a place to find a friendly face. We are something of a discussion group, a place where anyone may come to learn, to teach, to share, to heal, to celebrate.
