Getting Ready for Lent

The Wisdom Centre is pleased to present a three-week series looking at Parker Palmer’s A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward an Undivided Life.  Together we will look at some video material that complements his best-selling book of the same title.  In the first session we will look at the soul and our all too common failure to create safe spaces for the soul and hence to live a divided life.  In the second session we will explore the idea of circles of trust and clearness committees as safe places where the soul might show up.  In the last session, we will begin to explore how doing the internal life of living an undivided life has ripple effects in the world. 

The sessions will take place at St. Laurence Anglican Church (5940 Lakeview Dr. SW) on Tuesdays February 7, 14 and 21.  There will both be an afternoon session (1:30 – 3:00) and an evening session (7:30 – 9:00 pm).  There is no cost for these sessions but please register by emailing The Rev. Anna Greenwood-Lee at rector@stlaurence.ca and letting her know which session you will attend.

Participants may choose to acquire and read the book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward an Undivided Life, or you can simply attend without reading the book.   If you’d like to read more about Parker Palmer and his work http://www.couragerenewal.org/
