Spiritual Practice

The Unitarian Church of Harrisburg has several active lay-led groups specific to spiritual practice, education, community building, and social justice. Groups specific to spiritual practice are listed here.

Amrit Yoga

The Amrit Yoga group meets every Monday night from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in Fuller Chapel. It's free. When the weather is warm, we often do yoga outside on the deck or lawn. Bring a yoga mat and a blanket, and wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes.

Amrit yoga is a form of hatha yoga. It was developed by Yogi Amrit Desai. We use his practice CD, which leads us through a series of yoga postures that allow for proper positioning of the postures. The entire process moves and stretches every part of your body for an energetic workout, and includes a calming, meditative relaxation at the end.

If you have any medical conditions that restrict exercise, please seek the advice of your physician before coming. You will be asked to sign a release form for injury liability at the first session.

Yoga is a great way to exercise, offering stress release and relaxation for those of us with busy schedules. Come join the fun.

If you want more information, please contact Ed Sykes at (717) 975-9946.


Clover Grove is a group of earth-centered and pagan spiritualists at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg. The group meets monthly to discuss spiritual issues related to those of a similar path, and celebrates with ritual the phases of the Earth and Moon.

Our regular monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month from 6-8 pm. Our meetings vary and include rituals, drum circles, discussions, and workshops.

Please join us! All are welcome to attend our meetings and our Sabbat celebrations are open to the public as well as UCH members.

For information, contact Jen Wallitsch.

Mindfulness Meditation

The group has met since 1999 at the Clover Lane Campus and welcomes everyone to visit our weekly practice sessions and occasional special events. Group meditation enhances individual practice.

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present moment. It is useful for focusing attention, reducing stress, and changing habitual behavior.

Mindfulness Meditation can point the way to spiritual practice by encouraging the development of awareness and insight.

Mindfulness Meditation at Clover Lane provides a space for us to practice together in support of one another.
