Grok at Bok

Things To Know

Join Director of Visitor Engagement Tricia Martin to learn to play GROK, a card game designed to increase deep listening and empathy skills. Bok Tower Gardens provides a place for people to observe and listen to nature. Recent research has demonstrated that being in nature triggers feelings of compassion, generosity and connection. GROK teaches observing and listening deeply to people. Explore how GROK games can enhance your connection to yourself and others. Playing GROK games promotes social and emotional intelligence and gives us practice in the art of deep listening.*In Robert Heinlein’s 1961 science-fiction novel Stranger in a Strange Land, grok is a Martian word literally meaning “to drink” and meta­phorically meaning “to take it all in,” to understand fully, or to “be at one with.”
