How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I recently discovered the Art of Hosting online after reading the article "Leadership in the Age of Complexity: From Hero to Host" by Margaret Wheatley with Debbie Frieze while doing research for my graduate school practitioner theory paper at LIOS College of Saybrook University. I believe I followed a link from M. Wheatley's website to Berkana.org and then to Art of Hosting.
