Each of us is born with the gift of intuition. We have the capacity to develop our particular natural gift and incorporate it into our daily lives.   Are you curious to know how to access your intuitive gift? 

Developing our intuition helps to open and heighten our awareness, and can help foster spiritual growth.  In this introductory workshop you will learn about the different ways intuitive information is received, how to prepare yourself and your space (psychic self-protection), how to connect with your guides, and the different tools that can help you open and understand your own ability. Most importantly we will explore ways to incorporate and use our intuition into our everyday lives.

By Appointment

I took the "Advanced Intuitive Development Class" in May 2011.  With the small class size it was like getting one-on-one tutoring from Del.  Her expertise and knowledge in so many areas made exploring the different modalities fun, interesting and very eye opening.  Her kind and gentle way of teaching takes all the fear out of trying something new. I can't wait to take more classes with her - soon.           Charlene G. Ware MA
