Description

We are all born with intuition and a desire to connect. We possess the innate ability to recognize hunger, perceive danger, heal ourselves, feel attraction, and more. But as we grow, we lean more heavily on logic and stop tuning into our feelings and trusting our inner guidance. We forget there is a deep wisdom available to us at all times if we would only quiet our minds, and trust ourselves enough, to hear it.

Using stories and humor, Dana Childs—intuitive, teacher, writer, and energy healer—makes intuition approachable and accessible. This experiential workshop includes hands-on experiences that allow you to witness your own intuition at work, and mindful awareness and guided healing journeys to

  • “Wake up” your intuition so you can use it to make simple and complex decisions.
  • Identify and clear blocks in the way of your power, progress, and readiness to connect to others.
  • Learn to recognize patterns of unhealthy relationships including codependency in order to choose differently for yourself.
  • Identify with a higher perspective to receive guidance to carry you out of stagnation or “stuckness.”

Intuition aids heart-based connection because it’s based in truth. By connecting to Self on the deepest levels and being aware of subtle intuitive hints, you are able to enrich your relationships with others, the environment, and the Highest Power.

You’ll take home a new perspective on intuitive information and relationships, tools to use and apply intuition in your everyday life, and the ability to sort your own feelings and experiences from the empathic experiences of others—bringing you more fulfillment, peace, and contentment.

This program is open to everyone.

Program FAQs

What if I’m not sure I’m intuitive?
We’re all born intuitive. You are intuitive. It just may have gotten shut down or denied. At any point in time, you can wake your intuition up and use it to align to your purpose and live the life you’re meant to live.

I’m afraid if I open my intuition, I might open to negative energies or know things I don’t want to know. Can that happen?
I teach intuition through Divine Source connection only. While there are many beings we can connect with as we open and expand our psychic energies, learning to connect and filter all information through Source keeps the channel clear. That way what you connect to, and the information you receive, is only for your Highest Good.

Dana Childs

In 2009, Dana Childs left her corporate job and bought a one-way ticket to India in search of self. It was there her intuitive gifts opened. Today, as an intuitive, energy healer, and teacher, she delivers grounded spirituality with heart, humor, and unabashed truth through private healing sessions, workshops, online courses, and retreats. Her passion is helping others learn to access their trues selves and open their intuitive gifts. Dana is a favorited intuitive with Gwyneth Paltrow’s brand Goop, having been featured on their podcast. In 2019, Goop named Dana’s classes as one of their highlighted programs for intuitive development. When not helping others on their search for personal and professional fulfillment, Dana can be found writing articles, working on a book, or playing and hiking with her dog, Sufi, in North Carolina.
