Appreciative Living Circles-Appreciative Living suggests we can create real joy in our lives by focusing on, asking questions about, and creating mental pictures of what’s right, what’s working, and what we want most. It is based on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, with constructs from Positive Psychology, living-systems theory, and other strength-based approaches. There are three basic steps in Appreciative Living: 1. Appreciating What Is. 2. Imagining the Ideal. 3. Acting in Alignment. Join Appreciative Living Click Here.
