About this Course

Have you ever hit that decision-making brick wall where you just don’t know what to do? Your first reaction to a challenging decision may be to run for the hills, but then you gather your wits and tell yourself the “right” thing to do. Then you crumple into a heap and say, “I don’t want to do that!” But then you wait and pray for the answer to your dilemma to appear in the sky, paralyzed by the cacophony of voices coming from within—not to mention all of the external voices shouting in your ears.

Cynthia Borgeault brings us a fascinating look at the four inner voices inside all of us, unlocking a whole new method of discerning the best course of action for life's decisions.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, you will be watching a video teaching session and a video example from Cynthia’s own experience, accompanied by written questions to consider on your own.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you will have a spiritual practice to do—some of which, but not all, are accompanied by a video demonstration. Cynthia encourages you to set aside thirty minutes each day to engage in spiritual practices that will help you attune to your inner voices.
