Deepening Discernment Course


Discernment is the heart of being spirit-led. How do we understand this today? Participants’ own discernment experiences, both personal and group, will contribute material that, with tutor input, we use to test Quaker discernment and a secular model – Theory U.
How do we recognise discernment? What is the source or authority at the heart of our discernment? How do we ‘communicate’ with and discern it’s ‘voice’? How do we test and act on it?


Joycelin Dawes’ 2016 Eva Koch scholarship researched deepening Discernment, a core practice personally, for groups and organisations.
Gill Pennington is Woodbrooke’s Ministry Programmes Coordinator. She works to facilitate learning and enable a deepening of spiritual experience.
