The Elegant Warrior with Heather Hansen

Mar 20, 2023

Dr. Carolyn Kurle shares with us that there is a voice we all have that knows exactly what to do when it’s time to make a choice in life, big or small. She will explain ways to find your authenticity and trust it. 


  • What the Guidance Groove is and four Unproductive Grooves
  • Why you need to take a pause and examine whether you’re telling yourself a false story
  • How your entire body is part of your life experience and sometimes you need to quiet your mind 


About Dr. Carolyn Kurle ~

Dr. Carolyn Kurle holds degrees in Zoology, German Literature, Wildlife Science, and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. She is a tenured biology professor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Working with her students helped inspire her to write The Guidance Groove as she saw many of them struggle with feelings of inadequacy, obligation, scarcity, and unworthiness and exhibit many of the behaviors that stem from adherence to the Unproductive Grooves detailed in her book.

Dr. Kurle’s goal in writing The Guidance Groove is to teach everyone to recognize the false stories we tell ourselves so we can learn to stop believing them and discover where they come from and how they breed inauthenticity. 

Dr. Kurle’s book recommendation is Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer
