About This Class

We all make innumerable decisions every single day. Most of the time, this process is fairly easy and intuitive. But, occasionally, we find ourselves stuck or even lost at critical junctures in our lives. We go back and forth, paralyzed by indecision, and do not feel at peace—sometimes even after we have already made a choice.

If you want a broader set of tools and methods to help make decisions, this class is for you. We will cover strategies that can apply to more everyday questions (Should I attend this conference? Should I start this new diet?) as well as the high-stakes dilemmas we all have to face (Should I marry this person? Should I take this job offer?).

I will introduce you to four different but complementary methods that can help you access your subconscious thoughts and desires with a focus on spiritual awareness and integrity. These methods can help illuminate what it is that you truly want and need and how your choices can align with these objectives. Whether as replacements or supplements to traditional rational/logical methods of decision making (like decision trees and pro/con lists), these tools can help lead you in the direction that is best for your life.

Your class project will consist of sharing with the class what decision or decisions you were making, which method(s) you used, and what kind of clarity you received through that method or methods.

All are welcome to take this class if you feel like it can help you. Prior experience with these kinds of methods are not required.

It's surprising to me that this class has doesn't have more students. I can highly recommend it if you are looking for answers in your life that you can't find by just thinking rationally. Lydia introduces four different and complementary methods to find answers to small and big questions in your life. These methods are very much down to earth and easy to apply.

This is a great compilation of bite-sized meditation exercises, and I will be referencing it again in the future! Concise and easy to follow, and I really get a sense of the love and understanding the instructor has for people.
