Curiosity Unleashed: Harnessing the Power of Inquiry

Week of June 3, 2023

Session 1: How to Be with Yourself
We will explore what it means to be truly present with oneself and examine what might get in the way. As Daniel Levin wisely stated, “To straighten what is crooked, you must first straighten yourself.” By aligning with oneself, the world can appear in a whole new light. Whether you are visiting the ranch alone or simply seeking more time for self-reflection, this session will provide valuable insights and tools to help you manage yourself first.

Session 2: Being with Others – Really Getting Curious When You’re with Others
During this session, we’ll explore how to approach relationships from a place of curiosity, rather than judgment or assumption. We’ll delve into attachment styles & love languages and how they impact relationships. By the end of the session, you’ll feel empowered with new insights and tools to deepen your relationships and strengthen connections with those around you. 

Session 3: The Gift of Inquiry-Strengths and Saboteurs
Do you know your strengths and how to leverage them to achieve your goals? What about your saboteurs – those negative thoughts and behaviors that get in the way? In this session, we’ll discuss coaching tools to help overcome the negative patterns that may have been holding you back, while also learning how to tap into your strengths to achieve success.

Session 4: Design Your Life at Any Age and Stage
We’ll explore the phases of design thinking and you’ll learn tools for getting “unstuck”. This session is designed for all generations and will address the unique challenges and perspectives of each. Don’t miss this opportunity to design the life you truly want.

Session 5: The Secret to Living in Flow
In this final session, we will explore what happens when things don’t go as planned. We will discuss how to get back into the flow after a bad day or setback and share tips for getting back on track. This session will provide valuable insights and tools to help you stay on course towards a more fulfilling life.
