I'm reading about circles of trust by reading author Parker Palmer, a Quaker. Quakers have a discipline where by they create a special, sacred place for their own souls to emerge. They do it by establishing and adhering to guidelines or ground rules. There is no fixing, or rescuing or posing clever questions to convey advice. They believe that the deep knowing or voice of the soul will be scared away by attempts to push it is this direction or that. Quakers are confidence that silent witnesses are learning deep acceptance, the timid soul being witnessed can make itself known.
