LGBTQ+ Community Heart Circle and Spirituality Discussion

First Unitarian Universalist Church

The LGBTQIA+ Community Heart Circle & Relating Games is a monthly event designed to help people relate with one another in more meaningful ways. We believe life should be fun, and connecting with people makes life meaningful. We welcome anyone of any faith - agnostic, atheist, humanist, or anyone who doesn’t fit into a pre-defined category. Whoever you are, whoever you love, and whatever body you live in, you are welcome here! Come and participate in something that has been a part of Austin for over 20 years! This group has had a number of formats over its long history. Below is a description of our current structure. We meet at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin on the 3rd Sunday of each month, usually in room 13. What we do at our monthly community event: 1. We begin with some announcements and initial information designed to make this a Safe Space for everyone in the LGBTQIA+ Community. 2. Next we have introductions, and some icebreaker questions to get everyone involved in conversation. 3. The Community Heart Circle opens with a discussion on the topic of the month. We follow a format that allows everyone time to share their thoughts, if they wish, and allows time for open discussion as a group. 4. After a break, we’ll continue with improv-inspired relating games. These are fun and welcoming for anyone of any age to play. They’re not board games; they’re interpersonal games that will connect you with others in meaningful ways.
