This is a piece that Colleen and I are working on. Its a first cut at a larger piece. We are including it in the Work Book for the upcoming Art of Hosting Meaningful Conversations Training we are delivering this October here on Vancouver Island.
Tracking Coyote: The Spirit of Play in the Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter
- By David and Colleen Stevenson
“When we come together to play and be we are truly ourselves. When we are truly ourselves it is wonderful and when we act collectively in that wonder we do transformative work for our community and our world.”

I am hearing more and more questions in Belgium and around (Holland, UK) when there will be the next AoH(s) in Europe next year. I would like to sense in together with you if and when it could be time for the next Belgian and Uk AoHs... maybe towards the early summer? Or are there any plans already? My experience form past AoHs is that the time to start sending into that would be now!
And for your info, there is something brewing around the first AoH in German, but we are still sensing if the time is ripe... ;)

I felt the inner need to bring a lot of conversations and ideas together, and harvest it out to our community and especially to the stewards. Please read first the article written by Bob Wing and myself after our conversations late Summer. I first try to paint the picture of what 'the whole' is about, and then end this piece with some of the questions that I see.
I know that a lot here is written in short style, not much flesh to the bones... but please ask or add your comments, ideas and build on it further!
As a gift from our mate Phil Cass (click on: The Art of Calling) and the Columbus Medical Association / Foundation here is the first evaluation report made on the effect of the 6 Art of Hosting trainings that has happened in Columbus since March 2005 with almost 200 leaders. If you are interested in the whole process from 2005 till now, all harvest reports are available online!
You can find the report for uploading now in our Community Library (see link in the left orange sidebar). read more »
Since the second Guardians Gathering, May 2008 - we now hold new clarity on the specific learning that we convene and host at Axladitsa (and therefore the nature of the emerging guardianship called for) – Continuous Collective Inquiries – Inquiries that create fusion between different threads of practices which through the fusion create new collective entities that can support us humans to evolve and work with new levels of complexity. Our guardians circle is such a continuous collective inquiry. Other inquiries are called by guardians such as the Art of Protection and the Strategic Presensing with the Tarot. read more »
