    Going deeper in

    practice and

    exploration of what

    has sense and

    meaning now

    This training is not for spectators...

    We will learn by observation, experience and practice, using interactive

    processes to build a safe and inspiring learning environment

    Our learning will grow out of participant contributions, experience and and

    presence - we will support each other as co-learners

    In the process we will connect, inspire and support each other in our work,

    or maybe even create new initiatives or projects that would not have

    happened without this training

    We will explore how to apply the AOH practice and tools to your own

    context and projects-in-progress

    All participants are invited to bring topics or projects that are relevant to

    them and will use them as basis through the training

    "Hosting is an emerging set of practices for facilitating group conversations of

    all sizes, supported by principles that: maximize collective intelligence;

    welcome and listen to diverse viewpoints; maximize participation and

    commitment; and transform conflict into creative cooperation.

    Art of Hosting practices are different and complementary to more traditional

    ways of working that are based on rational planning in an attempt to control

    the process. Instead, this interactive training provides the basic theory and

    practices of specific methods as well as the consciousness which holds

    methodology about how to live and work in the creative tension between

    chaos and order - with just enough chaos to make the creation of newness

    possible and just enough order to bring the ideas into wise action. We call this

    the Chaordic Field, where learning and innovation take place and where wise

    and sustainable change can be discovered.
