Why are we doing this?
We are a Goa-based group of human beings and active citizens, practicing a participatory leadership approach called "The Art of Hosting and Harvesting Conversations that Matter" - artofhosting.org. Its a way for groups to share leadership and self-organise using participatory methods - It also nurtures a social field of peace, respect, connectedness and co-creation as we work together to change our world for the better : ) "Together consciousness" as one Goan village community leader called it.
Once training is done you are an apprentice and can immediately practice hosting participatory meetings in communities and organizations and teams. The 6000+ international online community is very supportive and generous with their time and wisdom to support apprenticeship learning.
We feel this is the leadership need of our time - how to be a team who can hold a space where different voices are welcome can lead to peaceful creative democratic dialogue and compassionate action. We have had wonderful experiences and results practicing with eg. village meetings in Goa, tourist boat operators and WWF, corporate brainstorming in Hyderabad, etc.
We want to make this approach as available as possible : )
