Stories of Doing from Art of Hosting Participants

With intent to support friendship, I will occasionally ask friends and participants from the Art of Hosting a question like this: I’m also wondering what is alive in you from the AoH experience that impacts what you do now? Wanna play for a bit?

Well, let's see...I hosted my first World Cafe along w/ my two co-workers Karon & Mirka which I think was a real success, despite my nervousness! I've also been able to use some of the tecniques I learned w/ the adolesents I work w/... I make them hold circle when we're having groups... One of the things I luv most is the impact it's had on my co-workers, they have been very open minded and willing to learn something new!

What from the AoH that I'm using? an Attitude of openness - letting my conversations with people, especially church people, be light, and not having an agenda for them that implies "listen to me."
