Christine Bulman

Christine Bulman is a grounded and insightful leader and educator with more than a decade of service to Unitarian Universalist congregations as professional religious educator in both interim and settled positions.
Alongside her work in faith communities, Christine has worked in the private sector facilitating place-based, experiential learning such as school garden programs, ecology, nature connection, wilderness living skills, and most recently, forest therapy guiding.
After receiving a Masters degree from Lesley University in Ecological Teaching and Learning, Christine was inspired to merge holistic, nature-inspired learning together with the Unitarian Universalist religious education – a kindred merger, bringing a unique new expression of UU faith development at a time when deep human and more-than-human relationships are urgently needed, across the lifespan. She conceived of and piloted a model of nature-based faith formation called “Faith Among the Trees” and is producing a curriculum guide of the same name that will serve as a resource and jumping off point for those looking to take their religious education programs out of the building and into nature.
Through this collaboration with nature and faith communities, Christine hopes to cultivate ecological consciousness and to build human potential so that each may thrive and use their gifts in service of the greater good and the places on the planet we call home.
