What is Intuition?: Resonance, Connection, and Trusting Intuition on its own Terms

Emily Sadowski

What is your relationship with your intuition? Do you trust it?

What do you think intuition is, anyway? And why would that matter?

What would change if you knew you could trust your intuition?


This is not another how-to book; it's a why-to.


What is Intuition? Resonance, Connection and Trusting Intuition on its own Terms explores why we might feel disconnected from our intuition, and inspires us to renew that connection. Offering vocabulary and a framework for thinking about what intuition is, Dr. Emily Sadowski helps us to normalize all kinds of intuitive experience, from embodied gut feelings to transpersonal, psychic intuition.


Insightful, wise, and thought-provoking, What is Intuition? is a journey into ideas about consciousness, connection, self-awareness, and the nature of truth, and offers up insight into how -and why- its possible to develop a trustworthy relationship to your intuition.


Based on research from Emily's PhD, What is Intuition? explores cultural reasons we might feel disconnected from our intuition, and inspires us to renew that connection. By offering vocabulary and a framework for thinking about what intuition is, it aims to normalize all kinds of intuitive experience, from embodied gut feelings to transpersonal, psychic intuition.


Like a lot of authors, Dr. Sadowski wrote the book she wished already existed when she was a student of leadership and philosophy of education. Something that was rigorous and with depth, that didn't ignore or deny the spiritual, woo aspects of consciousness and intuition. After developing and testing these ideas with clients and students for over 13 years, here it is.


The book explores consciousness, self-awareness, knowledge, and connection, and offers up insight into how -and why- to develop a trustworthy relationship to intuitive experience.


What is Intuition? is a smart, general interest read AND a resource for coaches and coaches-in-training, teachers, therapists, & parents.

About the Author

Sadowski, Emily: - Dr. Emily Sadowski, PhD writes, teaches, and coaches smart, sensitive leaders in cultivating their self-awareness and self-compassion so they can connect with their inner genius and trust their inner knowing. She is obsessed with leadership and the transformative inner work that leads people & cultures to change. Her work sits at the intersection of spirituality, meaning-making /existentialism, and collective liberation. She's like your most woo professor but your least woo self-development mentor. Her book, What is Intuition?, presents an emergent framework for authorizing intuition as a trustworthy way of knowing, in service of relating to our uncertain world in nourishing, ethical ways. Emily lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where you just might find her waiting impatiently for lake-dipping season, making wild fermented dill pickles (a Sadowski family recipe), or gazing up at the moon, in awe at this beautiful life.

Praise for this book

"A brilliant articulation of the genius of our intuitive knowing! In a world that makes the mistake of shaming our intuition, Emily Sadowski restores it to its rightful place. Our intuition is not some flaky aspect of our consciousness. It is the director of the symphony within us. It is our built-in harbinger of change, the truth-ache that courses through our veins reminding us of who we really are. For anyone who is unable to honor their intuition, this book will invigorate your faith in its wisdom. Highly recommended!" Jeff Brown, author of SOULSHAPING
