Art of Hosting training in Minnesota, Jan. 2011
Jerry Nagel wrote: "Attached is the workbook I am getting ready for the January '10 AoH in St. Paul - Minnesota, that I’m co-hosting with Toke and Tuesday. The workbook is about 95% identical to the 2010 Art of Participatory Leadership workbook that Monica sent to me several months ago (used in the European Commission). I have made a few changes: I added some language about worldview in the section on complex living systems; I corrected a few typos; I made a few format changes with color, bold, and font size; I changed centre to center, I removed the long article at the end by Stephen Duns and colleagues. And: adds some listening and reflection practices.
It is done for a Minnesota Foundation in January and April for a project of the Foundation called InCommons and is about communities developing the capacity to work on local issues using AoH principles. Participation is by invitation. In this case again there is not a cost to attend, but participants commit to hosting three events in their community using what they learned in the AoH training."
I hear from several participants that our workbook continues to inspire. Thank you for posting it here, Judy.
As we just had a mini reunion of our group, there is more harvest under the Art of Humans Being conversation on this site. There is also a handout of an original song I wrote and a sample of a simple 'visual journal' kind of harvest that I do at many of our gatherings.
To create this I prepare journal pages beforehand with a watercolor wash and then draw or write the essence of what is being shared during the gathering on the journal pages. It is easy to photograph and upload after an event. You can check it out at Visual Harvest idea from Art of Humans Being.

As we finally dived into the creation of our book, it became a co-creative process. Lisa really led the initiative as she learned the Mac and held the access point for our creative endeavor - all at the same time. This was not the typical Art of Hosting training and we wanted our book to carry the energy that we were holding - our intention and question to build on the AoH pattern.
Our Question: How will we as 'Humans Being' repattern ourselves to create and activate the new story?
The book carries the beauty of Lisa's art and the original writings that we each brought in as our practices, as how we live the Art of Humans Being. It was an ever evolving work of art. Many have expressed their gratitude for this gift of beauty and remembrance - as well as the practical Art of Hosting models, maps, and methods included.
It was an honor to be part of co-creating this new story as AoH evolves.
Art of Hosting Journal - Columbus, Ohio February 2011
Here is our most recent journal for an upcoming AoH. What is different about this journal in particular is that I formatted the entire journal into the mac program Pages. I find it much easier to work with than microsoft Word, and it ended up taking about 30 pages off the entire length of the journal. (this is nice for printing costs).
Another interesting piece of this journal is that every photo is from AoH/AoPLs that have happened in the Columbus, Ohio area, so it feels quite "local" in imagery.
Hello French-speaking mates,
Voilà ce que nous avons utlisé l'an dernier lors du AoH en France comme manuel. Toute modification ou amélioration est bien évidemment la bien-venue!
Belle utilisation et beaux voyages avec!
Yes, pages can be converted to a pdf, but someone who owns a mac by 'exporting it' and choosing pdf. I have a mac (yes, and I love it) I had a few minutes...so I did it. Here you go.
