I live the way of the appreciations for that is and a genuine inquisitiveness for all that can be. It nurtures me and all this around me. This psuedo..mind map, is my response to a two-day introductory workshop on Approciative Inquiry. I always take notes in colorful noodle-knots but sometimes display them as the image for non mind mappers. Enjoy!
"Appreciative Inquiry is based on a reverence for life and is essentially biocentric in character.
It is an inquiry process that tries to apprehend the factors that give life to a living system and seeks to articulate those possibilities that can lead to a better future.
More than a method or technique, the appreciative mode of inquiry is a means of living with, being with, and directly participating in the life of human systems in a way that compels one to inquire into the deeper life-generating essentials and potentials of organizational existence.
