About Our Approach to Intuition

What is intuition, really?
At IntuitionLab, we understand intuition as an innate form of human information processing, one that has been under training and developed. Our intuitive ability compliments our intellectual ability; while our intellect is linear and derived from impetus from the outer world, our intuition is instantaneous and derived from impetus from the inner – or quantum world. Intuition is our "quantum thinking," and has the ability to access wisdom at any place and any time through the non-local unified field. As we progress into a quantum understanding of our universe, we are discovering the crucial role of intuition in the universal mind.

Can intuition really be trained?
Yes! Intuition, just like the intellect, is meant to be developed. This process is part of the evolution of the human mind, as we grow into our full potential as human beings. Contrary to popular belief, intuition is systematic, verifiable and repeatable. At IntuitionLab, we teach you how to get validation of your intuitive experiences so that you can expand your mind beyond the limitations of society and cultural conditioning.

How does your intuition training work?
We have found, through decades of research, that intuition develops most readily when practiced with others. For this reason, group and partner work is a key part of our community practices. Working with other people gives you the concrete validation of your intuitive impressions that you need to built trust in yourself and your own inner voice.

We combine group practice with hands-on teachings, meditation, insight card work, and a variety of intuition attunement practices. In the process, you receive regular insight for your own life and learn how to differentiate intuition from other types of thoughts/feelings. 

What are Insight Cards?
Our exclusive insight card deck, Illuminate!, is our #1 intuition development tool. Designed by Kim Chestney, these beautiful cards serve as an interface with the part of you that knows everything. They differ from other oracles and tarot cards in that they speak to your intuition without any outside knowledge systems. We use them extensively during the first year program to help students build their intuitive language and receive guidance from their all-knowing self.

Can you describe your various types of sessions and how they work?
We offer a variety of exclusive intuition experiences to guide you on the inner journey, including:

Intuition Shares:
Group events where individuals practice sharing intuitive information with each other, focusing on various areas of life, including: life purpose, breaking through blocks, relationships, spiritual growth, physical well-being, wayfinding, remote viewing, past-lives, guiding forces...and more.

About The Sacred Guide: Our Signature Program

How often is the Sacred Guide program offered? Can I start now?
The Sacred Guide : 1 Year Intuitive Guidance + Inner Awakening Journey is our most immersive intuition development program. It enrolls only once each year, in December, and features both Personal Growth and Certification pathways. If you would like to get started outside of that timeframe, you can become an IntuitionLab member now, and begin participating in our community activities and monthly gatherings.

What does the Sacred Guide Program include?
Our full year program includes IntuitionLab membership, all four quarterly workshop series, plus exclusive monthly cohort trainings and private mentoring. It includes virtually all IntuitionLab offerings, and is designed for the truly dedicated seeker. This intimate cohort often creates friends for life and gives you personal access to Kim and the IntuitionLab faculty, for a deeply personal growth experience.

What is the difference between the Personal Growth program and the Certification Program?
  • The Personal Growth Program is ideal if you want to work at your own pace, without deadlines, but still want to enjoy the structure of regular workshops and training. 
  • The Certification Program includes everything in the Personal Growth program, plus additional advanced training, events, and private work with Kim and the IntuitionLab faculty. The Certification Pathway offers a more in-depth experience, with deeper inner work and graduation requirements. Certified graduates also have the opportunity to progress towards leadership and faculty opportunities.
Both programs prepare students for the Year 2 Light Leader Advanced Intuition Training & Leadership Program.

Should I sign up for the full-year program or just get started a quarterly class?
The Sacred Guide program includes all 4 quarterly workshop series, IntuitionLab membership, and opportunities to participate in exclusive events, including Certification, an Intuition Mastermind, an Illumination Journey, small group mentoring and a 1:1 session with Kim. So, you get a lot more if you join for the full-year.

Is this a live or self-study program?
The Sacred Guide offers a mix of live workshops and independent study, so you can learn at your own pace ~ but also be part of a supportive community that is sharing your journey. The Personal Growth program may be taken entirely self-study if you are unable to make the live workshop times. All live workshops will be recorded to practice on your own.

Are there breaks between the year-long program?
Yes, we run in quarterly segments with breaks in between. During break, we stay connected with regular group mentoring sessions, insight circles and coach office hours. 

What times are the live workshops?
Our live workshops are currently scheduled on Tuesday evenings at 7PM Eastern Time. All sessions are recorded, in case you can't attend live.

What is the class size?
We limit class size each year to create an intimate group cohort, with people who get to know each other and often make life-long friends. We generally limit the Year 1 group to no more than 20 individuals.

How much personal attention will I get?
As much as you need. We have a dedicated IntuitionLab mentorship team to be there for you every step of the way. You will be supported by our dedicated community all throughout the program.

What is the time commitment for this course?
We understand you are busy, so our courses are flexible and fit our modern lifestyle. The Personal Growth pathway can be completed at your own pace, with lifetime access to our IntuitionLab teachings. The Certification program follows a structured program that is more immersive but generally does not require more than 1-2 hours per week.

When can I enroll in the Sacred Guide Program?
Doors are open for enrollment each December/January and will close when we have reached maximum capacity or we reach the program start date, whichever comes first.
