How to Know and Trust Your Inner Guidance

Developing Intuition“Intuition is soul guidance, appearing naturally in man during those instants when his mind is calm. Nearly everyone has had the experience of an inexplicably correct ‘hunch,’ or has transferred his thoughts effectively to another person.” — Paramhansa Yogananda

More About Course

Intuition for Starters

“Intuition is the innate ability in everyone to perceive truth directly — not by reason, logic, or analysis, but by a simple knowing from within. That is the very meaning of the word “intuition”: to know, or understand from within — from one’s own self, and from the heart of whatever one is trying to understand. Intuition is the inner ability to see behind the outer forms of things to their inner essence.”                                                                                      — Swami Kriyananda

We’ve all experienced occasional “lucky hunches,” when we knew what street to take or what card to choose in a game without understanding how or why. This intuitive ability is latent within all of us. It can be developed consciously to bring clarity to all our decisions. In this course, we will explore what intuition is and ways to refine our ability to draw on this inner guidance consciously. We’ll learn practices to calm and focus our minds so that we clear the mental ‘static’ that prevents us from perceiving our intuition. This phenomenal course will provide everyday tools for accomplishing greater success in all areas of our lives.
In this self-paced course you will have 90 days to complete three lessons. We encourage you to complete one lesson per week and to dedicate some time every day to your study so that you may get the most from the material. Take full advantage of the interactive forums to share your thoughts and inspiration with other participants, and the course instructor is available to support you throughout your journey.

You will receive an email reminder seven days before your enrollment period expires. We offer enrollment extensions freely, so if you find you need more time to complete the course, you can let us know at
