Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I participated in the Art of Hosting gathering in the Spring of 2009 at the Marguerite Centre in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada. I was familiar with conversational leadership practices and was attracted to the opportunity to deepen my learning, connect to a new community of practitioners, and work concurrently on issues important to me.

I am an experienced practitioner in the Art of Hosting as well, and I was delighted to learn about and experience the Art of Harvesting three years ago. I have built a core service offering for my business Living Tapestries around this work.

Fostering community and connections that enable people to generate insights and move these insights into action, regardless of their context.
