    This article presents findings from a study of mediators’ experience of intuition in practice, a subject not previously researched. A qualitative phenomenological study gathered data from senior Irish mediator respondents in focus groups, from individual interviews and from mediator journals about their experiences of intuition in practice. The research finding shows that the development, cueing, and arrival of a mediator’s intuition is a holistic process, a mind, body, emotional and spiritual experience. This study suggests that the inclusion of these aspects of self in training has the potential to increase mediator intuitive capacity.
