How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I heard some Dana Endersen mentioning in a video "apreciative inquery". I went and look for it in the net and eventually, about an hour ago (18-Dez-2013, 16h00), found your site.
Since i work with Human consciousness development with children an some adults, I find it extremely usefull - but specially to my self - i need it.
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 have been practicing it for some years now, but on common knowledge grounds only - it made sence and got to it naturally. But never heard of the Art of Hosting till now.
Been working and mediating for many years now with groups of adults and children (groups of pupils and groups of teachers.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
To develop the capacity to use one's full potencial to live happely and creativaly, with oneself and with others and solve problems together. We are living great challenges in all communities in Portugal, no exception. Politics is not working. Looking forward to participate in solutions in citizen groups.
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
People are the thing I love most and simultaneously what I fear most also. But with life's experience and dedication the fear is fading fast.
Profound love and appreciation for all life, nature, including the Universe outside this planet. I see, and practice, the connection with nature as a key to love my self, others and harmonise the Human condition.
Sorry about the not so good English.
All the best to you All ☼
Dear Carlos, you can always look at the people's page and give in Portugal in the search field. What I am more aware is, that the Art of Hosting community is very active in Brazil, and many events are happening there. You might be able to connect to them on-line. All the best, and happy landing in this community!
