Event details

Join us for A Grand Time with Author Scott Shigeoka on How Curiosity can Transform Your Life and Change The World.

Curiosity is the foundation of our capacity for connection, growth, and healing. It enables us to challenge assumptions and biases, provide an antidote to fear and anxiety, and embrace uncertainty with more courage. When we choose to lean into curiosity, Shigeoka has found in his research that we are overall healthier, happier and fulfilled.

Join Rei Wang and Scott Shigeoka as they discuss how curiosity can strengthen our relationships, enable us to be more intentional and thoughtful, and sharpen our creativity and collaboration skills.

This will be an interactive discussion. We're capping this event at 25 people so everyone attending can have an opportunity to participate in the conversation and engage with Scott. We'll also be purchasing a copy of Seek for all attendees to read.

Praise for Seek:

Most people recognize the value of curiosity, but few know how to embrace and unleash it. SEEK will help you close the gap between awareness and action. Scott Shigeoka’s thirst for understanding and connection is contagious, and his book is a timely bridge for our divided world.— Adam Grant#1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Hidden Potential
