How do we trust it and follow it?
How can we tell when intuition is true and when is it false?
What is an inspiration journal? How can using one help us to cultivate true intuition?
What blocks intuition? And how can we successfully eliminate these blockages?

Each class meeting begins with an optional 45 minute meditation.
The course will be held in person AND online simultaneously.


WHEN: Mondays 6pm -7:15pm, with prior optional meditation 5-5:45pm
November 15 – December 13
