Intuition is something most people would have experienced at one time or another; it's that gut-feeling or inner voice or 'sixth sense'. It's instinctive by nature, independent of rational analysis or deductive thinking. But can we actively develop our intuition and learn how to better utilise it? Author Dr Cate Howell believes we can, and sets about showing us how in 'Intuition'. The book is divided into three parts. In the first, she explores the nature of intuition from different perspectives, including philosophy and psychology, religion and spirituality. She also looks at the use of intuition in decision-making in the fields of business, health and teaching. The second part of the book is more practical and considers different types of intuition, how to develop your intuition and then use it in everyday life. Steps explored for developing intuition include meditation, mindfulness, creativity, kindness and service. The final part of the book looks at some issues related to intuition, such as dreams and synchronicity, and how the development of one's intuition often seems to correlate with an increased sense of peace, purpose and joy in life.
'Intuition is a vital part of life and practice and now we have a book that will help us to develop this essential skill.' -- Professor Ian Wilson, Associate Dean, Graduate School of Medicine
