Art Of Hosting On Art Of Hosting

Art of Hosting on Art of Hosting - Europe

June, 6 - 8, 2007

Heerlijckyt van Elsmeren, Belgium


We are calling ourselves – and you and many others – to deepen our practice together.
The calling question is:


How do we live the next level of our individual and collective practices in the arts of convening, hosting and harvesting meaningful conversations?


Our purposes are:
• meeting each other and expanding our circle of mates
• hosting ourselves and self-organizing around questions that matter
• being a self-reflective community of practitioners inquiring into the patterns of convening, hosting and harvesting to inform the evolution of this community and practice
• reflect on how to give shape to the potential of the Art of Hosting learning community
• hanging out in De Heerlijckyt van Elsmeren


Topics that are already hot:
• How do we go from individual practitioners to a connected field of practitioners? Are we a community of learners or are we a community that learns?
• What is emerging now? Exploring what can our community become? “into words that have never been spoken before”
• What is our presence of/in being together?
• What might be the role of Europe in the world?
• What have we learned with and through our practice to date? Where do we individually – and collectively – sense the edge in this?
• How to host in other contexts? in difficult situations? in large scale change?
You may be called to this space as an Art of Hosting practitioner, or you might have been in an Art of Hosting training or something similar. Please check the website or get in contact with one of us to open a conversation about it!
