How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
As an enthusiastic facilitator for „Dragon Dreaming“ (a living systems approach to building successful organizations and projects for the Great Turning) I came across AoH while I was searching for supplementary approaches. Even though the methods contained are familiar to me I got interessted to get to know the spirit of AoH. So in June 2012 I participated at the training in the Allgäu.
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 am an experienced practitioner and learner in Open Space, World Cafe, Future Workshop (Zukunftswerkstatt). Now I am curious to perceive them them newly with AoH. There is a lot I am inspired of especially as seeing it as living system approach and as a learning community.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
I work as a facilitator and consultant for private organizations and non-governmental organizations in areas like creative, partizipative and sustainable team- and project design and conflict transformation.
I am also very passionated about story-telling, memory work and especially grief-circles.
