Make January 2022 your month of discernment.

This four-week online learning journey will change the way you make decisions. . . for good!

  • Why is decision-making so difficult?

    Even the most spiritually mature among us can be easily undone by the inner tug-of-war we often experience when we're faced with life's tough decisions.

  • Developing a method can help.

    This very doable, easy to learn discernment method shows us how to quiet down enough to recognize four distinct voices of inner wisdom that serve us well when we invite them all to the table.

  • Start the new year right.

    Beginning January 2nd, you'll receive weekly video teachings punctuated with real life examples, contemplative practices, a 24/7 online community, and a live video conference with Cynthia Bourgeault.

"Once you learn this method, it will never leave you."

Cynthia Bourgeault's students and followers have been waiting patiently for this new edition of the Four Voices. So here it is! This four-week online course will show you how to listen deeply to your own inner wisdom as you learn to recognize four distinct voices, all of which want to weigh in on your life's large and small decisions. Cynthia offers teachings and contemplative practices that help quiet the noisy mind long enough to listen not only to your initial reactions, but also to the voices of Spirit and Soul, and finally to the voice of your very own heart.
