The fall season is here, a time of harvest, bounty, abundance, and thanksgiving.
Sixteen months ago we moved to the UCC campus, and as a community have realized a ripening and maturation. We have been enriched by our relationship with the UCC community, and enjoyed many wonderful Sunday Celebrations, gatherings, groups, classes, and workshops on these sacred grounds.
The fall season is here, a time of harvest, bounty, abundance, and thanksgiving. It is also a time to reflect on all that we have gathered over the course of the year and deciding what needs to be released, let go of, and how to care for what we keep.
There have been many changes during this time, starting with the shocking unexpected departure of my son Adam in July 2018, which has rocked our family to its deepest core. At about the same time, Michael and I sold our home in Ogden, prompted by the fact that we needed to become Michael’s mother Carolyn’s caregivers as she came to the end of her Earth journey. Our path through grief has been incredibly difficult and we have felt so supported by you, our beloved community.
We couldn’t have managed to keep Satya on course and our monthly trips to Utah without your deep and abiding love, kindness, and generosity. We have been so blessed by Rev. Myrna joining us, keeping the daily operations of our organization moving forward and caring for our community through her leadership, wisdom, and consciousness. Lezlee, our music director, has uplifted and awakened us with her music, songs, and leadership of Inspire Choir. Dr. Pam has stepped up to speak at least once a month, in addition to serving as Treasurer and leading a Sacred Circle.
I am so grateful for the Board of Directors, Michael, Dr. Pam, Kelly, and Ben for their management of the business and operations, and to Sandy for being our bookkeeping and leading the Deeksha Circle. Dirk, J Jay and John, and many others have been there to support our Sunday Celebration and meditation group. Ben, Holly, and the IMPower Team have inspired and empowered our youth. Natalya has been the face of our book shop, bringing us great books that provoke deeper inquiry and awakening.
Great thanks also to the Sacred Circle members who have hosted our Sunday services with enthusiasm and joy. And finally, deep gratitude to everyone that attended our offerings and contributed with their time, talents, treasures, and presence. We have enjoyed a beautiful sixteen months here. We truly are a community-centered in love and service!
Today, I am feeling so grounded, so inspired, so grateful to be leading this spiritual community into the next iteration of Satya, Satya 2020!
We have been experiencing a much lower attendance at our Sunday services since we changed the time to the afternoon and have been going backwards financially; so after much dialog and meditation, our Board of Directors has decided that we will move out of the UCC. We gave them our notice to vacate a few days ago.
On Sunday, November 3 at 10 am we will kick off our new Satya Sunday at the Satya Center offices and classrooms, 795 24th Street, Ogden, UT 84401. We will meet there each Sunday in the future.
On Sunday, October 27, join me as I share my message “WOKE”. This will be my last Sunday talk at the UCC. We are moving and I am very excited for our new adventure. Rev. Myrna will continue to hold a meditation and visioning service at 12:30 pm at the UCC during November.
Next week, October 27, immediately following service, we will be sharing more good news and I will be leading a community Visioning. I would like you to be there because your voice is very important. Your input, vision, and heart will help shape this organization and community as we step forward into a brand-new decade of awakening, inspiration, and healing. Now is the time and WE are the ones!
Please contact me if you would like to talk about our move, our future, and our ministry.

From the first day I was genuinely welcomed from the members, people even sought me out to introduce themselves. Reverend Ali is an amazing woman with a large loving heart. The venue is at an amazing historical house. Ali’s Sunday devotions are in what was the carriage house, it’s large enough to hold quite a …
