Life was falling apart. Within the space of three years, Sonia Choquette had suffered the unexpected death of two close family members, seen her marriage implode and been let down by trusted colleagues. In order to regain her spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age-old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 820-kilometre trek over the Pyrenees and across northern Spain. Eventually, mortification of the flesh gave way to spiritual renewal, and she rediscovered the gifts of humility and forgiveness that she needed to repair her world.
Sonia shares the intimate details of her gruelling experience,as well as the unexpected moments of grace, humour, beauty and companionship that supported her through her darkest hours. While her journey is unique, the lessons she learned - about honouring your relationships with others as well as with your own higher self, and forgiving all else - are universal.
Sonia Choquette is a world-renowned intuitive and spiritual teacher who specializes in helping others recognize that we are all endowed with a sixth sense that we can count on. A masterful teacher committed to strengthening intuition in our daily lives, she is the best-selling author of ten books and numerous audio editions.
A highly trained intuitive, with extensive background in the mysticism of East and West, Sonia was educated at the University of Denver and at the Sorbonne in Paris, and holds a Ph.D. in metaphysics.
Sonia says, “I am intuitive because I was encouraged at all times to be awake, aware, and guided by my sixth sense. I grew up in an environment that treated intuition not only as natural, but actually essential to successful navigation in life. Intuition is a gift that we all have, that we can all experience, that we can all trust and that we all need!"
In working with people for more than 32 years of almost daily one-on-one private consultations, Sonia insists that the sixth sense is natural to us all. Whether it’s those “hunches” or “feelings” or “vibes,” everyone has them, but unfortunately most people dismiss or ignore them and sadly miss the benefits. With the onset of the changing world we now live in, Sonia emphasizes that using our intuition is “no longer optional. Working with and strengthening our intuition is becoming more and more fundamental to our ability to live harmoniously with ourselves and others in the new world order.”
Paying attention to the sixth sense, learning to listen, to trust it, to train oneself to call on its guidance, these are the challenges facing six-sensory people trapped in a five-sensory culture. Approaching human potential “from the inside, out,” Sonia offers a unique brand of grounded and practical techniques for people to use in order to claim their intuitive voice and incorporate it into everyday life. Sonia’s mission is to help people integrate a strong and trustworthy intuition into their daily lives. She guides them in how to build a psychic scaffolding to support their sixth sense so they can be bigger than they’ve ever thought possible. She teaches that our psychic sense’s primary function is to guide our soul’s growth and keep us connected to our path and purpose. Without its direction we lose our way. In her first book, The Psychic Pathway, Sonia states, “The psychic pathway i the pathway of the soul. It is a pathway of life lived with the belief and understanding that you are a soul, and that spiritual growth is your primary purpose.”
Sonia's own path has encompassed numerous best-selling books published in more than 23 countries, speaking and conducting workshops around the globe, thousands of grateful clients and a home in Chicago that she shares with husband Patrick Tully, daughters Sonia and Sabrina, and a poodle named Miss T.
A heart-breaking story that manages also to be an uplifting, at times hilarious, read. Sonia is a born storyteller who literally walks her talk. This is a story for anyone who's gone through the pain of loss or who has simply yearned to go on a spiritual adventure.
