Often, we ask ourselves big, nuanced questions as though we’re vending machines into which we can drop a coin and expect an answer to immediately pop out. What if there were another way to engage with big questions, a way that allowed our slower, subconscious answers to bubble their way up to the surface?

In this episode, we’ll explore a listening tool that doesn’t let us off the hook when it comes to big questions, but that also offers space and time for an answer to emerge.
