From Sense-Making to Response Webinar Series

January to April 2018, Hosting Sacred Conversations offered a 4-part series to explore practices that enable us to move from conversations to actions –– from sense-making to response.  Up to 50 participants at a time engaged in 4 webinars that included:

  • Guest interviews with experienced Art of Hosting practitioners
  • Exploring practices for creating responses to emerging understanding
  • Virtual “breakout groups” explore questions and to share what is working –– and why
  • Making connections to new resources and learning opportunities
