“The Art of Harvesting”

May 3-7, Training Online

Join us in developing and deepening your skills in how we can shift meetings, convenings and events from extractive to emergent through the practice of ‘Harvesting’.

Harvesting – the practice of listening, sense making and taking wise action collectively

Over one week we will be inspired from stories, teachings, coaching and practice with participants from around the world who also care about how and why we come together in our work.

Practitioners of all levels welcome

You are invited to bring your wisdom and experience to share, and also your burning questions and beginners mind.

If you have experienced collective intelligence, participatory processes and methodogies, hosting conversation you’re invited to come deepen your knowledge, share your learnings and co-create a community of practitioners.


Take your practice to the next level by immersing yourself in a participatory experience where we explore the different elements and formats of Harvesting.

  • Three 4 hour online sessions Monday, Wednesday, Friday (on Zoom)

We will be using these stories to understand more deeply what the practice of harvesting looks like across the world.

You are invited to share one or more stories. Make them short and specific, as if we were gathered in a pub or a cafe or around a fire sharing our experiences together.

We are interested in all kinds of stories! Tell as many as you like.
