What's happening...


I am born in Vienna and grew up there. Though I have since lived in many other places (Paraguay, Leeds, London, Karskrona, Bangalore, and Chennai), I have recently decided to return to split my year between Vienna and India. My goal is to offer strategic principled sustainability thinking using Art of Hosting techniques to organisations, particularly in the healthcare and education sector. You are welcome to view my LinkedIn profile for more info.

AoH India

I have spent 5 months in Tamil Nadu and am planning to return there when opportunities present themselves.  

I'm part of the group of practitioners who are preparing the field for AoH in India. Join the AoH India group and see what we are up to. It's exciting and we feel the timing is perfect :)

AoH Health Care

In summer of 2012 I was privileged to co-hosted the visionary Healthcare Leadership Summer School (HLSS) in the Netherlands. It was an incredible experience which inspired me to look deeper into heathcare and the transformations that are possible and indeed necessary. 

My last formal trainings

  • AoHarvesting, Kalundbørg, Denmark (March 2013)
  • AoH training, Karlskrona, Sweden (March 2013)
  • ALIA, Authentic Leadership in Action, Netherlands 2012 (March 2012)
  • AoH training, Karlskrona, Sweden (March 2012)

Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
MSLS, Master in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability, Karlskrona, Sweden (Sep 2011 - Jun 2012)
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 use AoH as my compass and a mix of its methods where appropriate at conferences, meetings, and longer processes which i co-host. Or, when meeting a stranger in the bus.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
My focus is to host spaces where difficult but necessary conversations can happen. My passion is to develop a longer arc so the fruits of these conversations can lead to impact towards a more sustainable world and ultimately a peaceful human civilisation.
Where do you live/work?
Vienna (Austria)
Would you like to share a web address?
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
* How can we move towards peace together?
* I am passionate about systems thinking and sustainability and fascinated by science and spirituality.
* The contribution of religion towards sustainability: We have a value crisis and every religion offers scripture and traditions that point to unity. (this was the topic of my master thesis.)
* I am an engineer, sometimes a geek. I connect in person with anyone and everyone all the time but mostly on public transport.

Welcome to the Art of Hosting community, Mischa! Please 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.   And I'm looking forward to seeing what unfolds in India!
