The Art of Invitation at Online

May 17, 2017 at 10am to May 31, 2017 at 12pm
Everything we do starts with an invitation, whether it is planning a birthday party, building a team, offering an event or entertaining the thoughts and actions that lead to world peace.

Invitation is an art, and creating better invitations a necessity...  
Everything changes when we move beyond invitation as a noun - something we send out before something happens - to  invitation as a verb - an embodied action that animates what's happening all the way through to completion.

Hello Rowan - thanks for your message - we just had a two day intro-workshop in AoH, here at our farm, facilitated by Jennifer from Colombia; myself I couln¡t partipate really, since I was very sick, but Marina, Esther & Tamara, neighbours from Erongaricuaro, did, I¡m reading now the manual; 

I have been in touch with some of the AoH Tools through Transisison Movement, and the model of the Pro-Action Café you helped us facilitade during the PC Fundamentals Course in Aleafeliz in January 2012, has been reproduced quite a few times since then in different PC Courses; we´re definitely haby with these tools, bus have to learn how to manage them; 

right now I¡m investigating on were to learn more, if there are gropus in Mexico (seems not here at least) - planning to get back to Colombia in June/ July 2016, hopefully...

muchos saludos a ti y a Zulma, abrazo...

Great work with this site! I am wondering whether it was possible to syncronize this site with Linkedin? Y.c. Maria

Hi Rowan, hope you are your family are doing well.

I got the impression that you are in the group hosting this site right? I'm thinking to make an AoH page on facebook that is global where events, invitation etc can be posted. There are a lot of local groups, but no shared page for AoH in general. If you and others wants to be admins on the site, just get a hold of me :) I'm on facebook quite a lot because I am behind a couple of sites, so it would be easy for me to share relevant AoH news through FB too.

Hugs to you, Lama
