Discover the superpower of curiosity with Scott Shigeoka, internationally recognized curiosity expert, speaker, and the author of SEEK: How Curiosity Can Transform Your Life and Change the World.

Shigeoka translates research into strategies that promote positive well-being and connected relationships. In this practical manifesto, Shigeoka takes readers on a four-phase journey to deep curiosity, showing us how to strengthen this fundamental human skill through his DIVE model—Detach, Intend, Value, Embrace—and build the courage to be transformed by the people, places, and experiences we encounter.

This event is free and open to the public and presented in partnership with St. Anne’s-Belfield.
