    The Curiosity Code: How to Judge Less, Connect More, and Embrace Your Opposition

    The Curiosity Code: How to Judge Less, Connect More, and Embrace Your Opposition

    In this solo episode, Geri explores the impact of judgment, throwing stones, and widening gaps of separation on our individual and collective experience, and proposes the risky topic of embracing your opposition and using curiosity to forge a connection with anyone (even the people who oppose everything you believe). Who knows, maybe you’ll leave actually feeling grateful for that person/belief system/group you can’t stand.
