My exploring and journey brought me to Art of Hosting and Harvesting. The generous community opened a space for me to keep learning together. Even though I got damaged from the practicing intense experiences almost each time, I end up with coming back to trainings. Now I know this is not only a training but a world we are creating as we hope and believe.
