Dear Nami,

Then we have met!
I co-hosted the hybrid Cafe with Kazu and Masato-san in Soeul. :-)

Welcome Nami!

I'd love to hear more about your work with cultural difference - that is such an important part of World Cafe - drawing on the diversity of our human experience - and so important for all of us to develop our skills and capcity to do so.

I wish I would have known you a little earlier - many of your questions about the theoretical underpinnings and practical aspects of the World Cafe are covered in our World Cafe Hosting Fundamentals course with Fielding Graduate University. It literally just started today, or I would suggest you join us.

But if I can help you with anything to do with World Cafe or this community space, please reach out and I'll be happy to help.
