Last weekend I participated in a 3 days Art of Hosting training lead by Toke, a guru of AoH. Was good (and needed) space for reflexion and learning, got a lot of good insights about hosting, working with people, creating change ... re-learning many things, reminding myself about others.
I´m thinking of posting a few of my notes here still, but firstly I´d like to share with you a final message by Toke.
*** *** ***
"We are the system - the system is not outside ourselves - it is our own broken relationships that need to heal - my relationship to myself, to life - to this earth - to the others - to the world - that is how systemic shifts happen.
I am the need in the world - we are the system - we are the solution. Meaningful conversations and real learning space heal our relationships.
We are invited to enter living from the heart....
From disrespect to respect - from I know better to curiousity - from judging to understanding each other- from fear to love.
This is what we need to host now between us - this is part of the Work of anyone who wants to help the world at this time."
