Discernment as a Way of Life

A Practical and Spiritual Approach to Decision Making

A course that creates space and community for YOU to grow in spiritual practices for discovering God’s will

Have you ever found yourself wondering what to do next with your life?
Or struggling with questions like:

Why is it so difficult to know God’s will and understand His leading?


How do I know God’s will when confronted with a major life decision?


Is there a practical and Biblical way to discern God’s will for my life?


Where can I find a supportive community who can walk with me as I develop discernment?


If any of these questions resonate with you, then this course is for you!

No word is sufficient to explain how the discernment practices, inside and outside the classes, have been so instrumental in helping me to make two very important decisions. All I can say is I found myself having the necessary tools for leading me to those decisions.

Why explore  discernment?

Most mature Christians have wrestled with questions around discernment. When our life path leads to a point where we must choose one road over another, we are often plagued with doubt, fear, and immobility. Or, we may find ourselves making decision after decision without much thought or consideration.


As seasoned Christians we are called to develop our capacity for discernment. We are called not only to seek God’s will in times of major decision making, but also to continually seek discernment for everyday living. How do we go about discerning the will of God and listening for His direction? How do we learn to practice discernment and come to know God and ourselves more clearly in every area of our life?

At the Stillness Collective, we believe developing discernment is vital to a strong, healthy Christian experience.  

We have created a course that will guide each participant to:
