Welcome to Tapping Inner Wisdom, a blog with Nancy Vedder-Shults. I’m a workshop facilitator, writer, and speaker. But first and foremost, I’m a person who empowers others to tap into their deepest knowing.
During this last, exhilarating year, I’ve presented at Women’s Spirituality retreats, Unitarian Universalist conferences, spoken as a guest speaker, offered workshops and classes, and begun to do spiritual counseling, all based on my book The World is Your Oracle.
This compilation of 40 techniques for accessing your inner wisdom has helped people to let go of their small self in order to awaken their wise guidance, speak their truth, unearth their bravery, and then take steps to pursue their lives with purpose. The results have been amazing, even for someone with years of experience in empowerment work.
I’ve been doing empowerment work my entire adult life. First teaching in the Women’s Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the 1970s and 1980s, and then offering spiritual growth workshops in the 1990s and 2000s. But using The World is Your Oracle as their springboard, people, especially women, have been diving much deeper into their inner selves and coming back even stronger. When you ask people to tap into their inner wisdom, they know what they need and want to create more vital, love-filled lives.
The relaunch of my website, now dedicated to The World is Your Oracle, will reflect the wisdom this book has helped to create. On my blog you’ll find new oracular techniques, tips for crafting better divination questions, ideas about how to interpret your oracles, and other insights that have come to me while facilitating my first World is Your Oracle workshops and classes.
The people I’ve met have been incredible. They have used the techniques in my book to plunge into their intuition and discover their vitality, their authenticity, the breadth of their love, and the depth of their wisdom.
In the process I’ve learned more than the book contains about the co-creative process of divination. And I’m sure I’ll identify even more pointers and insights as I continue to work with the bold women and men who create with me a circle of trust and wisdom, where – as Gretchen Haley says in her poem Lean On and Lean In,
“We might still name/ The needful things/ Of our hearts, /The missing places of our lives, / The dreams yet unfulfilled, Some, barely yet clear enough for words.”
To all of you who have kindled my insights, I say “thank you!” You will see yourselves reflected in this blog. And if you have any divination experiences you’d like to share or questions you’d like me to address in this blog, please leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.
I hope our interactions here will grow our oracular community. And I know with these tools in your hands, you will go out and make a difference in your lives and in our world.
Love, light, and healing darkness,
