There's a voice inside you that knows exactly what to do when it's time to make a choice. Every single time. That is your authenticity, your truth, your spark, your own personal Guidance Groove.

You can find your voice, trust it, and live by it. You can escape the untrue thought patterns that obscure your voice, breed inauthenticity, and feed your Unproductive Grooves of inadequacy, obligation, scarcity, and unworthiness.

The Guidance Groove is a roadmap for navigating the flow of life while in continual communication with your own authentic, intuitive self. It's an invitation to live your life from a place of wholeness.

The Guidance Groove is for those of you who are used to relying mostly on logic and the mental stories you have accumulated over years of personal, familial, and societal programming when making decisions. You believe the thoughts in your head, no matter how untrue, and this leads to a life of inauthenticity, dissatisfaction, and unease. Despite this, you intuitively feel and know there is that true voice inside you, there is a different and more authentic way for living that goes beyond your reliance solely on the rational realm.

The Guidance Groove shows you how to recognize when you are stuck in the false mental programming that feeds and drives your adherence to the Unproductive Grooves. The book examines what it means to be trapped in those Unproductive Grooves across multiple life arenas (intimate partnerships, family, friends, school/work/life, and community), how to escape from the automatic thinking that perpetuates the Unproductive Grooves, and how to find, value, and listen to your own personal guidance.

In this way, you can approach all choices from a place of wholeness, wherein your logical thinking self is fully integrated with your intuitive, feeling body. When you release your beliefs in false stories and become firmly rooted in your personal Guidance Groove, you then navigate the flow of life from a position of authenticity and clarity which naturally increases your ease, contentment, and joy.

Discover how true you can be when you dance freely to your Guidance Groove.

About the Author

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). She is the author of dozens of scientific articles investigating what animals eat and where they spend their time and she and the members of her research lab use that information to better inform conservation strategies for imperiled species and habitats.Dr. Kurle teaches hundreds of UCSD students every year. Working with these remarkable people helped inspire her to write The Guidance Groove as numerous truly outstanding, brilliant, hard-working, and beautiful UCSD students 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. The stories dominating their thoughts are clearly untrue but still dictate so many of their behaviors, thereby causing inauthenticity, unhappiness, imposter syndrome, and disconnection. 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. We never quiet our minds completely, but we can learn to recognize when our false thoughts steer our choices, then choose instead to act from a place of authenticity. With practice, this process becomes more automatic, until it takes only the briefest moment to think a thought, realize it's untrue, and go deeper into what is actually true before making a choice. We can then navigate life from a place of authentic wholeness, and ease, contentment, and joy will naturally arise.Dr. Kurle is also a mother to her son, Jeremiah. She loves reading, connecting with her loved-ones, nature, and hiking, especially in Mt. Rainier National Park and on the beach. She regularly rides her bicycle, rows on an ergometer, and walks because she loves movement for its vast ability to connect with everything around her and to integrate her body, mind, and feelings for creating a more whole self from which to approach the world.
