"Hi Lisa. Welcome to the group!
To my knowledge (admittedly limited), the is an AoH happening in early Nov on Pender Island, and one Nov 12-15 at Rivendale (see https://www.facebook.com/aohrivendell), but those are both outside your date range.…"
"Thanks, Kathy. I really enjoyed reading this.
I'm curious to know a bit more about any suggested pre-work that can be done by groups who are in physically different locations prior to the actual hosting event. Are there any tips or…"
"Hi Sara. Welcome! We met as a group once, in January. Since then we haven't managed to get together again, although there were some offers to host during the summer months. I think there is more conversation happening by an email thread, since…"

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I first encountered the Art of Hosting in Karlskrona, Sweden in February 2010. Some of our Master's students helped to organize an amazing event at that time. I was impressed by the amazing presence of the facilitators - Toke, Tennesson, Valentine, Jasmine, Augusto, Julie, etc.
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 frequently use some of the techniques (Dialogue Cafe, Circle, Open Space, etc.) in my work. I am fairly new to the other tools.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Great to see you here. It is almost exactly one year since the training in Karlskrona and what a year. I have been working with quite a few people from that training since and can see there is a new training about to happen in march.
Very cool. Hope you are doing great in Karlskrona - and if you ever stuble upon a whole in the Swedish education procedures where someone with a lot of relevant work experience but no official bachelor can be considered for the MSLS, let me know?
Hope you find this space useful and will help keeping it alive and vibrant.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to drop me a line.
