Intuition is something most of us would have experienced at one time or
another; it’s that gut-feeling or inner voice or ‘sixth sense’. It’s
instinctive by nature, independent of rational analysis or deductive thinking. But
can we actively develop our intuition and learn how to better utilise it?
Author Dr Cate Howell believes we can, and shows us how in Intuition.
In this fascinating book, Dr Howell explores how intuition has been a
part of philosophy, psychology, religion and spirituality, from ancient times

This book and program is about living well, and improving your health and wellbeing so that you can find freedom from EE. So, let’s begin!
