The Clearness Committee

Help for making tough decisions. Support in challenging times.

The Clearness Committee is an idea rooted in Quaker spirituality that involves gathering friends around a focus person in a reflective and thoughtful process to help the person gain greater clarity on an issue or to make a decision they are facing. Commonly, people bring together a clearness committee to help them make decisions about careers and education, retirement, "callings," relationships and family, and decisions around organizational change at work.


Everyone has the inner resources to find their way through difficult personal and professional challenges, but a community of trusted friends can help us peel back the layers of habitual thinking, confusion, or fear that cover our true knowing.


Lumunos is here to guide you through the process. We will help you articulate your challenge, form your committee, and provide an experienced facilitator during the meeting of the committee. In the end, you will come away with a greater sense of connection, greater clarity, and potential next steps. 

How do I get started?

Lumunos works with all types of people—from students to leaders to retirees. Because trusted friends are often geographically spread out, our clearness committees generally take place virtually via Zoom. (If you are in the Burlington, VT area, we may be able to help you in-person.)


If you are facing an important personal or professional decision or challenge, we'd love to work with you! Simply email We'll be in touch soon.

"The function of the Clearness Committee is not to give advice or 'fix' people from the outside in but rather to help people remove the interference so that they can discover their own wisdom from the inside out."
—Parker Palmer
