The Wisdom Centre is pleased to announce that Dan Hines, Anglican Priest, political activist and facilitator, will be with us in Calgary, October 27-29, 2017.  Dan has been mentored by Parker J. Palmer and The Centre for Courage and Renewal and will be with us in Calgary to tell us more about the transforming power of circles of trust.

Friday, October 27, 7:30 pm  Public lecture: A Hidden Wholeness: The Work of Parker J. Palmer and the Circle of Trust Approach

A Circle of Trust is distinguished from other ways of being together by principles and practices intended to create a process of safe space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it.  Dan will share about the trans-formative power of intentional small groups.

Saturday, October 28, 9:30-4:00 Workshop: Living a Whole Life: A Courage & Renewal Workshop (MAXIMUM 25 people for Saturday. REGISTER EARLY!)

Live a whole life.  Clarify and affirm your values in a Circle of Trust one day workshop.  Give your truth strength to flow out into your life and life’s work.  Be in alignment with your deepest values.  Explore issues of transition, vocation, life passion, purpose, meaning, direction, aging, relationships and underlying life patterns.

In a Circle of Trust, we are invited to slow down, listen and reflect in a quiet and focused space.  At the same time, we engage in dialogue with others in the circle – a dialogue about things that matter.  As this “sorting and sifting” goes on and we can clarify and affirm our truth in the presence of others, that truth is more likely to overflow into our work and lives.

Sunday, October 29, 10:00 am. Dan Hines will be the guest preacher at the 10:00 am service at St. Laurence Anglican Church

About Our Venue

Launched in 2007 by the Anglican Parish of St. Laurence in Calgary, Alberta, the Wisdom Centre was – and continues to be – inspired by the realization that traditional religion often does not meet people’s spiritual needs. Since its inception the Wisdom Centre has cast a wide net and welcomes all that embrace a path to the divine through spiritual practice.
