Counseling with Our Councils
Each person seeks his own will or preference, and works to maximize attainment of that preference, while accepting that the other will need to be accommodated in order to

move forward.
Each seeks to learn God's will on the matter, disregarding personal preferences. Each expresses and demonstrates love to invite the Spirit and to facilitate the revelatory process, and prepare each to follow through in faith with what has been revealed.
The brethren meet in a sacred place, typically the temple.
There are other places that can and should be sacred as well.
They also set aside a regular time for such conversations, typically each Thursday.
Before they begin the meeting they express love and appreciation for one another.
They then open with prayer, inviting the Spirit to assist and lead them in their efforts to recognize the Lord's will regarding the topics at hand.
Discussions have often been described as methodical,open and honest, each person speaking in turn (sometimes in order of seniority), expressing what he perceives to be most consistent with God's will on the matter.
