“The RIGHT question!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of August 5, 2012
Why the RIGHT question? Einstein watching sun rays asked “Could I travel on a beam of light? Could I reach or exceed the speed of light?” These questions led him to develop the general theory of relativity and effect a revolution in physics. In their book “Power Questions: Build Relationships, Win New Business, and Influence Others” Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas remark “Good questions challenge your thinking. They reframe and redefine the problem. They throw cold water on our most dearly held assumptions, and force us out of our traditional thinking. They motivate us to learn and discover more. They remind us of what is most important in our lives.” What right questions are waiting to be asked?

Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs.
