Flow of Day 3
Story of Day 3
by Nguyen Thu Trang (Iris)
Today we as participants practice hosting from the very first moment of the day, with the morning meta harvest to bring back the sense of what was going on yesterday. We dance freely in the room, embodying what we have learnt and made a posture when remembering each process we went through in the second day.
Today will be all about diving deep into what is present in the room – what is alive in each of us about the topic of collaboration. The first process we go through is called Collective Story Harvest. Five stories about great collaboration with the support of applying the Art of Hosting are told by five inspiring storytellers, and later on will be reflected through different lenses by all listeners. This is also where the beauty of the methodology lies – we as both storytellers and listeners all share and learn together from one single story.
As a listener, I love Collective Story Harvest because of its ability to nurture collective learnings, but at the same time, I always am afraid of missing out because I can only get to hear just one story as all five stories will be told simultaneously in smaller groups. However, this is also where I need to practice asking myself which one is the story that my heart wants to learn from, and trusting that no matter what story I choose to go to, it will hold the learning that I’m looking for.
So there I go. To a story told under the sun, surrounded by beautiful nature, about how Art of Hosting practices could support the organizing team to bring us here. The beautiful story is unfolded little by little, from the challenging beginning with a lot of doubts, fear and tiredness until the first day when we were welcome in the training.
We finish Collective Story Harvest with a conversation when we sit with people with the same lens from other story as well.
