Frequently Asked Questions
about Intuition and Empath Programs
Type your paragraph here.
I currently have two programs: Own Your Intuition and Claim Your Empathic Superpower.
They both work the same way—so this FAQ is for both of these group classes.
(My private program is a different set-up and very individualized.)
HOW OFTEN DO YOU OFFER THESE PROGRAMS?
I teach each class only once a year.
WHAT IS THE CLASS STRUCTURE?
We meet via conference call for 2 hours every other week.
We spend the first hour talking about everyone’s experiences using the tools that they’ve learned in the previous class: how it worked for them, what happened, what they noticed the difference was, etc. The second part of the class is where you learn a new tool or two.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT FOR THE CLASS?
The time commitment is somewhere between 3-5 hours over a two-week period
(including our 2 hours of class time).
It breaks down like this:
2 hours of class time every other week
30 minutes of partner discussion in between classes
30 minutes (or less) to read your homework document
Your practicing the tools and techniques happens while you are living your life. So for the most part you aren’t doing anything other than what you would normally be doing. There are only couple of exceptions to this—for example when we talk about the tool of meditation. If you don’t already have a practice then you will find time to put that in. But my goal, always is to help you find a way where these things fit seamlessly into your life, so I give you tips on that. And for example, with meditation, I’ve had many students who never did- or always wanted to but didn’t feel they could, be able to easily walk into this practice with my guidance.
HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM?/WHY ARE YOUR PROGRAMS SO LONG?
Each program is 7 months long. My programs aren’t a quick shot in the arm. They are designed to help you make comfortable, easy, and lasting positive change. You learn a tool. You practice it. You come back and tell us about your experience. We do this on repeat so that you slowly and easily make great positive and lasting changes. You have time to practice and improve your skills.
When I was first starting out teaching my programs I had a mentor who told me that the way to help your people make lasting change is to be with them over many months. That way they have time to experience, to integrate, to get the support they need as they are learning.
You are going to be empathic your whole life—so it’s important to me that if you are going to invest in a training for yourself to understand and wield your gift—that it last. That you have enough time and focus to make the tools that you learn second nature—so they go on for you beyond our time together.
Same goes for my Own Your Intuition program. Many many times when people finish my programs they say, “Now I know I’ve got it all inside…. Or “You are the last teacher I feel that I need.” I intend for you to have lasting results— and when you leave our class time together for you to know you’ve got this— whether that is related to your empathic ability or your broader intuition. That’s why I continue to teach my programs in a seven-month format that has plenty of time for you to integrate and practice and begin to master what you are learning as you live your life.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS A CLASS?
After each class (that same evening) you get an MP3 recording of that class—so if you have to miss a class you can still get everything. You can also review them at a later date if you like. You also get a PDF document that details in full the tool that you’ve learned this evening. I wrote these so that you would have something to review and so that you would have something easily at your fingertips months or years down the road if you ever wanted to refresh your memory about a certain tool or skill. That document also has your homework at the end of it. Those are the tasks based on what we are learning that you are expected to practice over the next two weeks until our next class. Each class builds upon the next—so once you learn a skill you continue practicing it. The document also details the questions and experiences you are expected to discuss with your partner or triad prior to our next class time.
WHAT ABOUT TIME ZONE DIFFERENCES?
I live on the West Coast of the US. My classes are currently in the evening from 6:30-8:30pm. I’ve had students all over US, and the world from Mexico, to Ireland, to Dubai, take my classes. It works BEST if you can actually be on our class call. That way you get your time to share, and ask questions. So sometimes it has been 6:30 in the morning for one student and evening for the rest of us. Or for my East Coast students— we finish class at 11:30PM. Class time is every other week, so often my students can make this happen. But because they are recorded, there is always the option to listen to them later. Occasionally I’ll have an East Coast student for example, who just can’t stay awake that late. She will jump on our call, share at the top of the class, and then jump off and listen to the rest of our class later. I always suggest that if there is a time difference that makes you feel you won’t be able to consistently be on our class call—that at a minimum you reserve a regular time the day following class to listen to our class call and learn the tool. So for example, if our class is on Monday evenings, you block off 2 hours in your schedule on Tuesday to listen to our class. That way you have as much time to practice as possible, you stay up to speed, and can easily ask questions as you are practicing with the rest of your class.
WHY DON'T YOU DO YOUR CLASSES OVER ZOOM?
Since I started my programs in 2015 I have intentionally used phone for our classes instead of Zoom or video. I feel it gives my students the freedom to listen and digest the information in the way that is best for them. No one feels watched. No one has to worry about what they look like, or what another person looks like, or is doing, or what is in their background. You can be in your pajamas or whatever! You can do class from your bathtub if you want! I don’t care! You can doodle, or take notes, or do whatever it is that best helps you integrate information as we go—and no one else will be distracted by it.
Even though we don’t see each other during our class time—you really do get to know your fellow classmates and have a profound sense of comradery and safety in each class. I’ve had multiple friendships bloom from class partnerships.
I'M WORRIED ABOUT SHARING IN CLASS— I OFTEN FEEL
UNCOMFORTABLE DOING THIS— WILL I BE REQUIRED TO?
Yes, you are required to talk about your experience. Articulating it helps you lock in and integrate the tools and understanding of your own capabilities. I can tell you that each class has a very intimate, comfortable, and safe feel to it. Ground rules are set up ahead of time about this being a safe and sacred space. Students do not share other people’s stories in a way that identifies them unless they are given express permission to do so. In all of my years of teaching this— even my most trepidations students have come to appreciate the sharing time. It is so rich to hear from each other’s experiences. So often you garner more insight from hearing each other– or for example another student brings up a question or situation you have but forgot to ask. The same goes for your own shares—they add to the whole.
AM I LIKELY TO BE TRIGGERED DURING OUR CLASSES?
We share real things from our life—but we don’t do so in a processing way. Our class time isn’t time to process things together and detail every life story. It’s time to ask questions, tell us about your experiences using the tools, share your difficulties if you’ve had any, so that we can trouble shoot what will work for YOU, and share your successes. Our discussions, though real and safe, are not about deep processing— they are not triggering.
WILL WE BE IN CONTACT OUTSIDE OF CLASS?
CAN I ASK YOU QUESTIONS AS THEY COME UP?
We are connected via WhatsApp throughout the seven-months of our class. Almost daily I send out an image to our class thread with words about the tool we are currently learning and practicing. This serves a reminder to you. It helps jog your memory during the day that – “Oh yeah, this is the tool I’m mastering right now.” Almost everything I teach is actually quite easy—it’s the remembering to do and practice it that is a challenge when left on your own. Our text connection helps you remember. It also provides a place for you to ask questions as we go along. So if something comes up you can send a quick text to the group about it. If I can answer those on WhatsApp I do. If they require a longer discussion I bookmark that and we talk about it in depth in class. It’s also a place where you can share your victories with myself and your classmates. It helps remind everyone of the tools they are practicing. Some classes are very active on WhatsApp. Others less. Either way, it’s a place that we are connected almost daily during our seven-months together and a place I remind you of your tools.
TELL ME ABOUT THE PARTNER WORK? WILL I BE EXPECTED TO
PROCESS THINGS WITH MY PARTNER?
In each program you are assigned a partner or a triad to connect with during the interim between classes. Some partners meet in the middle of the two weeks, some meet a day or two before our class time. You and your partner decide what is best for you. This discussing of our class topics helps you further integrate what you are learning. As you will hear me say again if you take my classes, “articulating helps you lock the information in.” Prior to the beginning of our partner work I send out a document with guidelines for your partner calls. Your class document details the specific questions (related to our current learning) that you are to discuss on the call. Though most people wonder how it will go— some of my students who felt most adverse to the partner work developed friendships that lasted beyond class! Despite initial worries, it most often greatly enriches the experience for my students.
WHAT SETS YOUR PROGRAMS APART OR SURPRISES STUDENTS
ABOUT YOUR PROGRAMS?
The thing that most often surprises my students is that the classes I teach are practical. I realize that empathic and intuitive ability may be in the woo- woo category. But I don’t teach these things because they are cool. They are cool! But they are also UBER USEFUL. That is why I learned to understand and sharpen my own use of them. That’s why I teach them to others. I’ve had students come back to me and tell me about how their intuition saved their life, or helped them not miss a flight, or helped their company garner a new client and/ or hundreds of dollars in increased business. I’ve had students tell me how their relationship with their partner and their kids or their co-workers is improving from what they learn. I’ve had students whose co-workers or healers started asking them—"What are you doing different!? You’re so calm and collected or your so much more at ease now.”
So, for example, you won’t find me talking about things like astral travel, or being able to ascertain a person’s name before they tell it to you (psychic things like that)— but you will hear me teaching you how to connect with your own highest wisdom—and help you learn how yours works and practice listening to that wisdom—whether the answer you need at the moment is whether to buy more pasta while standing at the grocery store or big questions like, whether or not to move across the world. I’m interested in practical applications of your intuitive abilities—not esoteric ones. I’ve had students use these tools to navigate a cancer diagnosis and treatment, or better parent their teenager, or improve their relationships for example.
Your intuitive (and/or empath) senses are senses you have that when you understand them will make your life run smoother—will guide you to more satisfaction, ease, and success, always. They help you live the life that is right for you. That’s what I teach you to use them for.Type your paragraph here.
