Your Trainer, Lori Wilson

a history walk ...

This company and core values have their roots anchored in the professional background, philosophy and experience of founder Lori Wilson. We believe that it is important to be aware of the historical context of how particular modalities, training or philosophies of practice have developed. To know the roots of a school of thought is to understand more fully the path from which it has grown.

A key influence in shaping the foundation skills and values of Lori’s specialization in intuition is Grandmother, the ancient Shoshone spirit guide that Lori has been consciously channeling since 1989. Grandmother came gently into her awareness through journal writing and has since been a key inspiration to hundreds of thousands through her monthly website focus, books, radio show wisdom and teachings for individuals and larger audiences. You will find endless opportunities to learn from is wise teacher throughout the Lori & Grandmother division of the Store.

A visionary and self-professed “mother bear”; Lori's passion to spread inner trust is evident in all she does. Her personal mission has always been to encourage as many people as possible to trust themselves first. Much of the material taught in the foundation training, Access Intuition 101 and the advanced specialization in Channeling as a Profession is based on Lori's years of blending firsthand, client-driven social work experience with a solid apprenticeship with Grandmother and the spirit world. The training in Medical Intuition, Business Intuition and Artist Intuition has grown from the stellar intuition, tracking and sourcing skills that are the signature foundation of this work.

1994     Inner Access 101 

In 1994, recognizing that the demand for service had far exceeded her personal availability Lori started to actively teach others the skills she had learned and developed. This has created a strong network of high caliber practitioners and Trainers who offer these same specialized services in: Channeling; Artist Intuition; Medical Intuition; Sales & Business Intuition; and Regression. Inner Access 101 is comprised of a dynamic and caring team of Trainers, Host Partners & Graduate Practitioners who provide individual services.

Public interest in seeking solid support continues to grow yearly. Self-exploration, self-trust and inner wisdom are here to stay.  From 1994 - 2017 over 12,000 students on 5 continents have explored what Inner Access 101 has to offer on a global scale in the in-person Training opportunities. At Inner Access 101 we keep things simple, foundational – hence the 101 in our company title. Lori and the IA101 Trainers seek to de-mystify and teach that intuition is not a mystical gift but rather a skill set that can be developed in all. Inner Access 101 takes a leadership position in providing direct opportunities for everyone to obtain these natural skills.

Stewart Hope, DOMP President of Inner Access 101

Since its inception Stewart Hope, husband and business partner of Lori Wilson has been equally dedicated to the development and ongoing operations of Inner Access 101. His desktop, office, computer, and administrative skills have provided the technical foundation upon which this company is built. For years he has witnessed people of all experience levels benefit from these services. Stewart believes that while there are a variety of people teaching intuition with a sensational approach. While sensationalism may certainly first catch your eye, he maintains that Inner Access 101 and Lori Wilson are here to help you actually master your intuition skills. "We teach you how to do it". This reality is echoed frequently in the stories of clients and students. As a manual Osteopath, Stewart sees first hand the value of the medical intuition scans Lori has done for his clients.  Lori and Stewart are have raised 4 sons and are proud grandparents of 3 grandchildren and two 'grand-dogs'.

2017  Transition to On-Line Classes

In 2017, we made the transition from In-Person Classes to On-Line Classes for our Specialized Trainings, shorter Webinars and the daily, monthly and yearly teachings. While we miss seeing students in person — this platform allows us to teach more people throughout the world. It also affords our treasured students considerable savings, time and travel wise as you can now enjoy excellent skill development from your home or office. New classes are added monthly and we continue to be leaders in the field of intuition-based training.

We believe that the more people who use their intuition and trust themselves first — will continue to create the kind of world we can all call 'home'.

Our Mission is "Changing worlds ... with inner trust."
