Ancient Sea Island Continuum is an Earth-centered spirituality group affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Beaufort. As one of the 70 chapters of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS), ASIC is dedicated to networking Pagan-identified Unitarian Universalists (UUs), educating people about Paganism, promoting interfaith dialogue, developing Pagan liturgies and theologies, and supporting Pagan-identified UU religious professionals.
Members of ASIC meet once a month in a forum called ‘A Year & A Day’ to cover the essentials of Paganism traditionally accepted as the foundation of a Pagan spiritual education. ASIC’s guides combine classical and contemporary perspectives, interweaving the experiences of living in the Lowcountry and on the Sea Islands. At our meetings, we explore Pagan beliefs, customs, and celebrations, blending printed, online, and media resources and offer a path towards a personal dedication to Pagan living and identification.
ASIC draws from the large depth of heritage when it comes to worship styles in Paganism and Unitarian Universalism, often creating new styles of worship. Worship services, often in the form of rituals or ceremonies, can be traditional, modern, or a blend of both. Both our meetings and services are open to solitaries, visitors, or those curious to learning more about Earth-centered beliefs.
Our service work includes Pagan Prison Ministry. ASIC ventures into South Carolina correctional institutions to support Pagan-identified inmates as they practice their faith. In our classes, these participants not only learn the fundamentals of Pagan practice, but also to respect the differences held by adherents of other spiritual beliefs.
Whether you identify as Pagan, Heathen, Wiccan, Druid, Animist, or simply wish to engage in Earth-based spiritual traditions, find us at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Beaufort, 178 Sams Point Road on Lady’s Island in Beaufort, SC.
