Intuitive Development Certification

HCH Institute is proud to present our Certification in Intuitive Development. In this course you will journey into discovering and developing your own intuitive abilities so you can integrate your intuitive awareness into your personal and professional lives. This unique program will teach you practical, fun, and empowering tools to access non-ordinary states of consciousness as ways to tap into your greater knowing and wisdom. You will learn how to step beyond the intellectual ego-mind into the realms of the higher Self so that you can come to know that infinite possibilities exist beyond the bounds of ordinary consciousness. Whether you take this class purely for fun, or you are wanting to use intuition in your professional life or healing and helping practices, you will discover and cultivate your intuitive abilities and expand your consciousness in a non-hierarchical, supportive and empowering learning environment. Teens twelve and older are welcome.

This certification program is comprised of 64 hrs, six day-long weekend classes, and two courses that are also offered in the Parapsychological Studies Certificate Program: Being Psychic and PK and Precogniton. The courses may be taken in any sequence. All courses are also offered to the public as non-certificate students.

Bring a notebook and snacks. For day-long classes, lunch break is from 1PM-2PM. Bring lunch or dine out.

All Intuition classes are CE unit approved for RN's, MFT's, and LCSW's.

Opening to Intuition and Using it! , 6 hours, $125
In this course you will come to understand what intuition is and how it comes to you. You will learn simple tools that will prepare you to openly receive intuitive information, including meditation and running energy. These practices will help you quiet your mind, get grounded, open to spirit energy, and become more balanced and clear to receive intuition.

In the afternoon, we will discuss the importance of paying attention to your intuition, trusting it, and acting on it. You will explore the four most common ways of sensing intuition: clairsentience, clairvoyance, clairaudience and claircognizance. There will be plenty of time to practice using your intuitive skills, to determine your natural tendency for receiving spiritual guidance, and beginning to put it all to use.

Using Intuitive Energy to Care for Body, Mind, and Spirit, 6 hours, $125
Whether you plan to use your intuitive abilities to help others or would simply like more clarity in your own life, recognizing how energy impacts your well-being is imperative. You will learn to recognize the presence of positive energy and how to create and maintain it for yourself. Techniques to help you care for yourself, including Reiki, crystal healing, EMF, visualization, and positive thinking will be introduced.

In the afternoon you will learn that as you begin integrating intuitive skills into your daily life, it's extremely important that you become aware of and learn to deflect negative energy before it effects you. You will focus on the steps involved in the process of recognizing negative energy, discover who is sending it (it could be you!) and either dissipate it or distance yourself from it as quickly as possible. Energetic boundaries will also be introduced and practiced in class.

Overcoming Intuitive Blocks to Achieve Full Potential, 6 hours, $125
When you understand that intuition is an inherent natural ability, you can begin to address the subconscious blocks that keep you from achieving your full intuitive potential. In this class, you will bring to the surface how cultural, familial, spiritual and other beliefs influence you in creating these blocks. You will have a variety of hands-on activities and exercises in the morning to help you recognize and overcome these beliefs that no longer serve you on your intuitive journey.

In the afternoon you will focus on eliminating chaos and creating order and in your life to allow your intuition to flow freely and consistently. You will begin to determine what needs "cleaning up", so you can make space for what is important to you. As always there will be plenty of activities to help you get organized and get clear on your goals, so you can expand your intuitive awareness and reach your full potential.

Exploring Mediumship and Practicing Spiritual Ethics, 6 hours, $125
During this course you will begin to explore mediumship and experience sensing and receiving messages from spirits who have crossed over, and from your spirit guides and power animals. Communicating with loved ones who have crossed over often provides a sense of reassurance and can potentially help you deal with unresolved issues. Identifying and connecting with your guides and power animals, is a valuable source of guidance and support in resolving life issues and achieving your goals.

In the afternoon we turn our focus to ethics and boundaries regarding giving and receiving psychic or intuitive information. You will explore questions such as, when should I divulge information to a friend or stranger that I have intuitively received, or should I tell them at all? You will explore your own feelings and beliefs about the use or misuse of intuitive information, and examples of good and "not so good" ethics and boundaries will be presented.

Dreamwork and Staying Present in the Moment, 6 hours, $125
In this class you will explore dreams from the basic function of dreams to the different types of Psychic Dreams such as precognitive dreams, displacement dreams, foreshadowing dreams, symbolic dreams, and others. You will learn techniques to help you boost your dream recall, how to really pay attention to your dreams, how to ask your dreams for guidance and more.

As you continue to develop and integrate you own intuitive skills and style, there can be times when you feel stuck. It seems at times that the information is not forthcoming or you doubt the information you are aware of. In the afternoon, you will learn techniques and participate in partner practices where you learn to stay present and "get out of your own way" by beginning to differentiate the rambling of your ego mind from your own intuitive language.

Accessing Intuitive Guidance with Divination Tools, 6 hours, $125
In this course you will explore divining tools, such as divining rods, pendulums, automatic writing, reading objects, medicine cards, and runes as a means for your conscious mind and higher self to acknowledge and interpret intuitive messages.

The entire day is designed to give you the opportunity to take charge of your own intuitive skills. You will practice using your intuition in your daily life by learning and experiencing techniques to help you find objects, read people's energy, and tap into your own intuitive abilities. There will be a large variety of experiential practicums presented.

Heather Penman:
MA, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist

Heather has been a natural healer her entire life. Helping others has been her profession for over 20 years. However, not until she became a hypnotherapist, when coupled with focused learning via Reiki, did she discover the greater depths of her intuitive abilities.

Channelling her energy has assisted her in "tapping into" the greater wisdom and intuition within, which manifests itself in working with clients in a loving and authentic way.

She believes that by using humor along with developing and creating a place of inner peace, that much can be accomplished. She revels in the wonders and joy in the world around her, and strives to assist others with their own personal quests of personal growth, healing, and intuitive development.

Carlene Foldenauer
Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master Bachelor of Fine & Applied Arts, Teaching Credential

While growing up, Carlene was always curious about astrology, "fortune telling," and communicating with spirits. This curiosity continued to grow as an adult. After her grandfather passed away in 1986, Carlene began seeing a medium that told her things about her grandpa that nobody else would know. This warmed her heart and strengthened her belief that spirits live on. And when Carlene's beloved sister crossed over in 2007, she began to receive her own messages. She also believes that dreams are an important source for intuitive information. She has been using her own dreams for many years, to solve life issues.

Carlene has used her intuitive abilities throughout her life. As a child she had an unusual inner strength, and approached life with courage and confidence. As a retail management professional for over 15 years, she often found herself "just knowing" the right thing to do, and a bit frustrated that she had to back up her decisions with facts and numbers. And in her recent past, as an elementary school teacher, she was able to "tune in" to each of the students, clearly seeing their individual gifts. Now she recognizes this strength and inner knowing, as her Higher Self, and believes that all answers are within.

Currently, as a hypnotherapist and Reiki practitioner, her intuition serves as her guide when working with clients. She uses these skills to read her clients' energy and to recommend techniques that will help them solve their problems and live life more happily. Prior to completing the hypnotherapy and energy therapy certification at HCH, she engaged in an intuitive program, which helped her access clarity and focus regarding her life path, and ultimately led her to HCH

"I love being part of HCHs Intuitive Class! What a joy to be with like minded people, working toward a common,personal goal. As a business owner and mom, I need all the help I can (intuitive and other) to get through the day! Joining this class has taught me how to get "grounded" to "open up" my channel and to "listen" to my own intuition. The teachers present the material in a light and joyful way...we have fun, we play and we learn at the same time. I would highly recommend this class to anyone ready to expand their intuitive awareness!" Rosalind
