SuperPower Curiosity

We all have the SuperPower of Curiosity. It is inherent to being human. It is the drive to discover, the quest to question why until we reach a satisfying answer or a deeper question, a key to our joy in the wonders of living in this world.

But sometimes we seem to lose our natural curiosity. This podcast is dedicated to regaining and enjoying our SuperPower of curiosity. It contains both radically informative talks and fascinating conversations with out-of-the-box experts.

The first season of SuperPower Curiosity is about overcoming divisiveness. How do you regain peace of mind during divisive times, even if you can‘t change a political or social situation? This season delves into how you can transcend the toxic worlds of political and social divisiveness — with their constant invitations into worry or outrage — and stand in your own innate strength and joy.

With peace of mind, not only do we feel so much better, we also give ourselves a better chance of being effective in changing our society for the better. This first season is based on Dr. Richard Gillett’s # 1 bestselling book: It’s a Freakin’ Mess: How to Thrive in Divisive Times.
