Join Grace and friends for a journey of monthly inquiry, the practice of four questions and turnarounds, with a group of sincere inquirers. New topic, live zoom calls, forum for written sharing, partnering.

People enroll in Year of Inquiry once, twice, three times. The community is brilliant. This offers you a way to build a steady practice of un-doing stressful beliefs and hitting the reset button, on anything.
Touch a hot stove. Ouch. You immediately pull your hand away.
Later, the mind begins to think about that terrible moment.
Will I touch a stove again? Will there be a stove in the next place I enter? How can I protect myself against getting burned? I need to know about the location of all stoves in my vicinity. What if a stove shows up where I work?
Life is hard. I'm not safe. I should be more careful. It shouldn't have happened.
Many of our stressful perspectives began in early years of our lives: Family of Origin, school, peers, society, religion, culture.
In Year of Inquiry we break it down by focusing on one topic every month (always with the option of moving to where you want or need based on your life experience--in other words, no one has to stay in the lines).
Our monthly topics (not necessarily in this order):
There are three gaps, often gaps we're unaware of, that seem to impede our ability to find peace around the situation where we felt burned emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually.
1) More training • More research • More seeking. Like an ever-present attitude of hope that soon, you’ll get it or get there.
2) Wanting to do it alone. We don’t want anyone to push us (very understandably) or boss us around, or scare us, or brainwash us, or bore us. Nor do we want to try something that winds up failing again.
3) The third missing link or gap is the uncanny ability for us to go into unconsciousness. Not really our fault, simply the amazing power of the mind to bury feelings • avoid pain • whistle in the dark, try to be “positive” without really accepting the “negative.”
Year of Inquiry is a way to have a concrete, clear way to work with negativity, worry, depression, despair, conflict and lack...and transform them.
Instead of moving into More, DIY or Unconsciousness, we identify and question just one thought at a time.
Your own personal work is brought to the group in the way you feel most comfortable. No one has to share, you can listen-only and learn so much (although we love to hear from you when you do share). You can listen to recordings of the live sessions. You can share via writing on our private forum. The style that matches you is your method.
The most important thing?
You, questioning your stressful thinking.
Year of Inquiry helps us take centuries-old wisdom on the path to inner awareness, not taking the mind so seriously, dissolving our shame. We create the container to:

"Thank you to Grace for believing in me, trusting me, and walking beside me as I went through what was arising about facilitating. You have created a space in which I feel safe to explore and show up as I am. What an amazing gift! And, thank you all. It has been a privilege and a joy to sit with you all in inquiry this year. I love the quote by Ram Dass that Grace sometimes shares “we are all just walking each other home.” I feel grateful to have traveled beside each of you this year.With love and deep gratitude"

"Grace is great and so sincere and thoughtful. She practices what she preaches. I like her sharing personal stories too because I can relate. Very organized. Very knowledgeable. Such quick loving responses in our special private Slack forum."

Year of Inquiry has worked. The times are great and I like that it's all the calls plus a week off a month. No burnout. Nice to be able to listen to recordings. Grace is organized with the technology and it works. I do like our Slack forum for keeping connected. YOI has been a positive experience for me."
