You all might want to take a look at my doctoral dissertation which has lots of theory references from the fields of consciousness, strategic planning, living systems etc. around why this "stuff" works!
How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Toke Moller and I have collaborated since the earliest days of AoH when we were at the Shambhala Institute initiating the work in strategic conversations there. As a co-founder of the World Cafe, we are kindreds!
