Container Holding as A Hosting Practice

Recently the Art of Hosting Stewarding Community gathered in Minnesota - Juanita, David, Amy and Jake Voit were all there too - and in preparation for the gathering we began a deep inquiry into container holding or holding space.  It is one of the patterns that crosses many of our beautiful methods.  Sharing the learning here too.Container Holding as A Hosting PracticeSee More

Hi Kathy,
Juanita suggested contacting you as someone who has experimented with combining the creative arts and World Cafe. I am really interested in this and have started a discussion asking people to share their experiences. I would love to hear from you. Best wishes, Jasmine

oooh, how wonderful - a very warm welcome to you into this online community dear Kathy from me as a host of this space :)
Fantastic! i know that you are a fabulous contribution to this space - and i welcome it with warm smiles and curiosity in joint explorations...

I will forward you the first community update i sent a few days ago - and let me show you some entry points that might make it more fun for you to start here. There is a section for introductions, feel warmly invited to write a little intro about you there. Also we just started the monthly question, see if that one triggers a response from you. Part of that Inquiry Circle will also be regular virtual Cafés, the first one will be on April 24th. That's just before the Art of Social Innovation isn't it ;)

Also i wish to show you the fancy stuff i built to make this collective more tangible - there is now a global map of all participants (will be updated soon) and there is a Tag Cloud that allows you to enter the rich treasury this community embodies through combining some keywords in a search query...

Dear Kathy, let me know if i can assist you further in this space, again a very warm welcome to you :)
