Are you looking for the positive elements that will strengthen your yoga, meditation and other health practices?
Many of us focus on what’s not working or what we’re not doing well in our yoga, meditation and health practices. A more effective and compassionate approach to strengthening our practices is to ask focused questions about what’s already working and build on it.
In this workshop you’ll to learn the process of Appreciative Inquiry and experience participating in an Appreciative Interview. Appreciative Inquiry is a strengths-based, positive approach to personal and organizational development.
During the workshop you’ll have an opportunity to pair off with someone and share your story of when you’ve felt most engaged and committed to your practices. Our group discussion will highlight our stories and how they guide and reinforce our practice. We’ll close by sharing our 3 wishes for what we want more of.
Prior to the workshop, a link to a short video on Appreciative Inquiry and questions for the Appreciative Interview will be emailed to participants.
