Starts November 12: Transparency: Virtual Book Club

Transparency: Seeing Through to our Expanded Human Capacity. by Penney Peirce.

(registration has closed).

If you have been subscribed to my newsletter for some time or otherwise know something about me, you probably know how much of a fan I am of Penney Peirce's writings on intuition. In her newest book, Penney writes:

"Transparency helps you learn that when you’re transparent, there is great power in being seen for all of who you are."

Penney's books are designed to help you align with who you are at your core. The part of you that KNOWS the solution to every problem, and directs you perfectly in real time, moment by moment. Her books are brimming with experiential "Try This!" exercises in each chapter to support your learning and integration of concepts presented.

The Virtual Book Club includes:

  • monthly telephone sessions to explore chapter themes,
  • guided explorations of "Try This!" awareness practices and
  • discussions about applying personal themes in personal life.
  • Optional individualized coaching/mentoring sessions are available (for an additional cost) to help participants see through to the full extent of their expanded human capacity.

You can order the book now.


  • Six monthly recorded tele-conference sessions, 8pm - 9pm Eastern Time. Recordings will be circulated after live calls for download. 
  • Suggested monthly practice for application in personal life
  • Private Facebook group for sharing personal experiences between monthly calls.
  • group size is limited to 12.
