How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Been involved for many years. Lost my password. Lol. I attended a training in Vermont years ago that was wonderful. I consulted in private practice for 17 years with school systems and US Embassies on the topic of drug education and family health. I loved and continue to explore how the tools of AoH allows people to discover, unpack, and harvest insights that cannot be found along traditional "gathering" practices.

Hello, Jeff, and welcome BACK to the Art of Hosting community, now that you've recovered your password...! Glad to see you here. Post a photo when you can so we can really "see" you here. Then join in with all the conversations. You'll find plenty of resources here, too, to help you deepen your practice. And the more you add to your profile, the more the community can learn from you and share with you. We hope you will find value in exchanging in this virtual community!
