How to ask better questions.
I recently met a homeopathic practitioner with a thriving practice and incredible testimonials. He shared with me that the key to his evolution as a practitioner was with the clients he couldn’t help – because they were the ones who forced him to ask different questions. Asking better questions enabled him to develop new medicines and protocols that healed clients where traditional pharmaceuticals failed.
Would you like to help your learners ask better questions?
The key is not simply in the techniques we use as facilitators, but in the “location” from which the questions and answers are drawn. As we discussed in our last conversation about the Field, the body-mind is much more creative and able to access a larger Field of information than the brain alone. The good news is that there is a way to dramatically increase our ability to ask and answer higher-order questions: to include skillful intuition, emotional intelligence, empathy, and embodiment as part of the inquiry process.
My next Intuition in Education conversation focuses on asking better questions. I’ll be sharing my take on the fabulous practice of Strategic Questioning, developed by Fran Peavey.

1 thought on “Why do we ask questions?”
I’m over a year late, but I 100% agree about the need to emphasize intuition in education! I started a TikTok channel for it :)) https://www.tiktok.com/@intuitionscience/video/7152844986202066218
Also, I highly recommend the work of Efraim Fischbein on the topic. He defines intuition as how the mind “creates the appearance of confidence”, in order to “bypass” the loud-mouth mind (as Alison put it) and encourage ourselves to act. I think this definition covers a lot of ground, and has a lot of fascinating implications that I hope to explore!
