Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Nancy Bragard is a friend of my friend Mary Ruth. We met in August, 2022 in Irvington, Virginia at Ruthie & Michael's wedding. Mary Ruth was certain we would have some things in common. When Nancy began to describe the Art of Hosting, a "wow" surged throughout my being.
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)
The most satisfying/successful "training" happened two weeks before when I let go of a "telling" way of leadership and led & participated in a conversation. My level is new, starting practitioner with curiosity and openness.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
My primary field is in working with clients in equine assisted therapy, leaders in churches (Episcopal), non-profit organizations, summer camp staffs.
Where do you live/work?
Richmond, Virginia. USA
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
-Equine assisted psychotherapy
-Working with groups using the Art of Hosting is my new passion! (stepping away from a didactic approach is a challenge).
