How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I am sure I had heard of it before but I got a good dose of it at the CReating Spaces for Collective Healing gathering in Florida.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
I have been part of a foundation, Threshold foundation, that uses many of the tools and approach as Art of Hosting without calling it that. I also participated in a 6 year cross-class dialogue group that had many of these elements - which became an organization, Class Action. i have also learned a great deal about creating sacred space from working with David Spangler and the Lorian Association as well as Temenos Retreat Center in Shutesbury, MA.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Philanthropy, money, impact investing with a race/class lens.
No, I'm back in Paris until Nov 30th. I've lived here for 41 years ... and am now wanting to better balance my time between RI and Paris. Just got back from 6 lovely weeks on Narragansett Bay!... But let's keep in touch and perhaps we can meet one another over my next "RI stint" which is Nov 30 to Jan 12.
Hello, Jenny, and welcome to the Art of Hosting community! 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!
By the way, I am also a New Englander ... and will be spending more and more time in my home in Rhode Island. Would love to connect with you sometime!
