The Practice of Inquiry

There are many avenues of exploration into the psyche; Inquiry is one that brings an aliveness and immediacy that can give rise to a sense of wonder, possibility and radical awareness.

In this conversation with Diamond Approach teacher Dom Liber we explore the practice of Inquiry, how it differs from analysis, the role of somatic sensing and language, applying Inquiry in coaching practice and potential pitfalls for coaches.
