Hi friends, for those of you in the Eastern US, there is a new AoH offering coming up in October 28-30, 2014 in North Conway, New Hampshire - a residential training on Human Potential and Collaborative Leadership with a new local team.  Jerry Nagel and I are excited to be offering this and would love to have you join us or help spread the word.  Details here:

We had a wonderful Illinois Art of Hosting community of practice day on May 23, 2013 in Chicago. We were joined by stewards Chris Corrigan, Kathy Jourdain, and Teresa Posakony and hosted by locals Lina Cramer, Kevin Johnson, Renee Jackson, and Janice Thomson. 

Here is the harvest in newsletter format -- from photos, questions, and group sharing.

Here is a document of methods, tools, and resources I collected on harvesting to feed into this day.  I also put it on a google doc so anyone with this link may edit or comment on it.

A video harvest will be coming in the next few weeks.

Discussion is ongoing on the Illinois Art of Hosting google group.  To join the google group, email

With gratitude for the wonderful learning on harvesting.

Hey Sunday,

keep up the great work. I can't wait to present some of this work with Chicago Public Schools. They can certainly use your expertise, and it will give us an opportunity to practice together.
