Hicks to facilitate sharing circle

Ted Hicks will facilitate a sharing circle for those wishing companions on a spiritual journey.

Ted Hicks will facilitate a sharing circle for those wishing companions on the spiritual journey towards discovering, healing, and freeing our authentic selves.

The group will be based on the work of Parker Palmer, the American Quaker and educator, especially his remarkable book, A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward an Undivided Life – Welcoming the Soul and Weaving Community in a Wounded World.

The circle will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Comox United Church on two consecutive Friday nights, Jan. 18 and 25, with a third session to be determined at the mutual convenience of the group.

This three-week introductory series will be followed by a monthly “check in” circle, the time and place to be decided by the participants. The group will respect the beliefs and convictions each person brings and is open to anyone in the Valley, regardless of their affiliation or tradition.

Pre-registration is requested for planning purposes by phoning the church office at 250-339-3966, and leaving a message with your name and contact information.

It is recommended that people attend all three sessions but coming once, twice, or all three times is equally acceptable. A suggested donation of $5 to $10 may be made at the door each time.

Ted Hicks is a retired minister, as well as an active spiritual director, columnist, and retreat leader who works with a number of churches and other community groups in the Comox Valley. Comox United Church is located at 250 Beach Drive, at the corner of Comox Avenue in Comox.
