Abstract: This article introduces and develops a second-person contemplative approach for instructors, groups, and teams working with fostering collective wisdom and leadership development processes. To these ends, I draw upon Scharmer’s practice of presencing, Varela’s three gestures of becoming aware, and the Quaker practice of discernment as a means for engaging collective contemplative approaches to transformative learning across different academic and professional contexts of learning.
