PRACTICE DON’T PREACH THEORY U IN 7 BREATHS! INVITATION.   Guest House Facilitation unravels the mystery of how Theory U unfolds, precisely as it should be, effortlessly and smoothly with the awareness of the Life Pulse.   How to bring Theory into practice? How can we hold space for the steps of Theory U regardless of the contributions of the participants, the constellation of your group and the available knowledge within the group? Imagine bringing your awareness to your breath. A few deep breaths metaphorically bring you right down the U in connection with Source.

Theory U is non-linear but for ease of reference throughout this series of articles, I have structured it into its linear form in the table below which summarises all the steps of Theory U, steps 1 through to 7.   CHALLENGE REACTING SOLUTION Step 1:“DOWNLOADING”: viewing the world through our habits of thought, allowing our current reality to surface.
