This ground-breaking study explores spiritual and secular discernment. It is a detailed study of the process of Quaker practice of discernment and of Theory U, a secular framework for change. Joycelin Dawes cross-fertilises the insights of Quaker practice with the methods and visual 'U map' of Theory U. Her purpose is to bring greater clarity strength to Quaker discernment through 'mutual irradiation' with Theory U. Joycelin is an established writer on Quaker and contemporary spirituality. What others are saying about this book: "This compelling book provides an original and insightful understanding of the art of discernment for the modern world in all its complexities. Joycelin Dawes explores the Quaker tradition and practice of discernment alongside modern secular leadership approaches of presencing and sensing. She offers an invaluable synthesis and makes a significant intellectual and practical contribution to the field of discernment and decision making for individuals, leaders and members of organisations. I cannot recommend it highly enough for its wisdom and insights." Dr Lynne Sedgmore CBE. Former Chief Executive of 157 Group, The Centre for Excellence in Leadership UK. "Joycelin Dawes'book explores Quaker discernment in the context of 'Theory U', a model for understanding the flow of decision making. It helpfully illuminates Quaker discernment without turning it into an artificial or theoretical process but retaining the connection to deep spiritual experience that we as Friends are seeking and encounter when engage in discernment processes. This book will help Friends to better understand, practise and share Quaker discipline and the source from which we act." Simon Best, Head of Learning, Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre. "What a fascinating and scholarly exploration of the nature and practice of discernment. Joycelin Dawes has carried out an exquisitely detailed investigation into the heart, head and hands of Quaker discernment; she draws on her equally forensic study of 'Theory U' to portray the light it can shed on both discernment theory and action. This is an exciting and timely study and of interest to anyone interested in improving collective thinking and decision-making." Jane Reed, Facilitator, coach and researcher. Author of The Adventurous School: Vision, Community and Curriculum for primary education in the twenty-first century.
