Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Found out about AoH Bowen Island workshop through searching Berkana website. --Very excited about participatory approaches reflected here as they are similar to my Health Promotion roots and experience working in community in early 2000s
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 was very experienced at one time but need to refresh my abilities as I have been working in a very bureacratic setting for awhile that is not so conducive to these principles --I plan to keep trying though!
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
To help people create space for themselves and for the "Other" or hidden Presence that accompanies us in our work (i.e. the "hidden wholeness" or one Spirit energy referred to by Parker Palmer and others)
Where do you live/work?
Edmonton, Alberta
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
spirituality at work: how to support the hidden wholeness in myself and others; create the space and silence that helps us here this --even in our hectic everyday lives
