Are you the kind of person people often want to talk with? — Are you a parent, teacher, manager, spouse, masseuse, friend? Almost all of us find ourselves in the position, at some point, of listening to someone talk to us about their problems.
Would you like to feel more confident about how to respond? This interactive 5-day program gives you important tools for how to listen to another person, how to tune in to who they are and how their own Higher Self would like to guide them.
The course will begin with how to develop your intuition. Intuition is a human faculty deeper than thought: the clear inner knowing of what is true. Intuition is one of our most important faculties, though often undeveloped. As a spiritual counselor, it is important for you to develop your intuition.
The first part of the course will cover:
- What is true intuition, and where does it come from
- Attitudes needed to develop intuition
- How to listen to, and trust, your intuition
- Easy-to-use practices for intuitive guidance
The second part of the course will include how to:
- Listen to someone from your higher self to theirs
- Listen from the heart to a person’s underlying energy, which sometimes hides behind the words
- Help people learn by guiding them to take action
- Avoid the temptation to try and “fix” people
- Look for solutions, instead of being overwhelmed by the problem
- Recognize subconscious, conscious, and superconscious thinking in yourself and others
- Learn how to ask the questions that will open doorways for the other person
- Direct a person toward an expansive view of divine influences in their lives
- Find solutions for our own challenges
This is a beautiful and inspiring time of sharing honestly our experiences and challenges in trying to help others.
Included in your course materials is the book Intuition for Starters by Swami Kriyananda.
"Even though I have been trained in several other counseling modalities, spiritual counseling unites the mind and the heart, opening a counselor or teacher to bring through the answers specific to the individual they are assisting for their highest good and well-being."
"Even before our retreat ended, I was able to help a friend. He felt like he finally had good insight on his issues and what action to take because I let him figure out his own solution, instead telling him what to do."
This class is informative and practical. Diksha is a spiritual counselor who "walks her talk." Her deep personal spiritual attunement and knowledge of Yogananda's teachings are an inspiration. The information is communicated not only through lecture but stories and exercises that challenge you to step up and into the role of spiritual counselor. This class would benefit the professional as well as the gentle friend who seeks in earnest to serve in this way.
