Get to Know Duane
My name is Duane Grove, the Curious Sage. I formed Connect2Action because I believe there is a gap between spiritual guidance, wisdom, resilient living, and the tools and support to take charge of your life. Living a resilient life means being able to weather the storms and bounce back more easily and quickly. Being aware of your highest purpose is only the first step – taking action is the key to becoming truly authentic, fully alive, and living to your highest potential. Living a heart-focused life enables you to live into your purpose each and every day.
I am passionate about the transformative power of human connection. It has been the wisdom and insight of others who have encouraged and supported me that helps me step into my own path and continue to stay connected on my journey. I have found a deeper connection to my own spiritual truth is stronger when I have others to assist me. The tools to authentically examine my own truth are only effective when I put them into action in a way true to who I am through my connection with others.
After years of study and professional development, I have used a combination of coaching and spiritual guidance tools that are easily tailored to each person’s unique needs. I use a blend of spiritual tools based on your specific situation to offer insight focused on assisting you in your life’s journey and search for deeper connection and meaning. My approach is to bring insight that helps you take action and to step into your highest purpose. My approach is to help bridge the gap between knowledge and wisdom, and the concrete steps to help others manifest their own greatness.
Building upon a career as an aerospace engineer and strategy executive, my approach is both spiritual and scientific. Many often wonder how someone with an engineering background and years in corporate America found his way to embrace a path of spiritual guidance and life purpose work. I believe what makes me unique is the engineering and corporate experience that enables me to offer a fusion of the divine with disciplined action. Together, I help others create connections guiding you to take practical action focused on establishing a deeper sense of life purpose and fulfillment.
