Denise talks to Dr Neena Verma about the learning and growth that can occur when we are able to accept what is unfolding in our lives, even when that’s hard. Neena talks about her own challenges and personal loss and how she has learned to ‘be present to what life is presenting’. A long-standing practitioner of Appreciative Inquiry, she has been a pioneer of turning this appreciative focus to the shadow side of our lives and using it to find acceptance and growth through challenge.
