In their own words

Ask a simple question and then take time to deeply reflect on what unfolds in the conversation. It is in the space between the words that many possibilities for change exist. In order to better understand the reality we experience, we need to look at how our assumptions and beliefs frame our perspective.” Dr Ken Jennings
