I’m excited to be offering four online courses over the next three months – each a short series packed with learning and inspiration. Two are official “World Cafe Signature Learning Programs” co-hosted by Amy Lenzo and Samantha Tan, and two are original, long-requested offerings from Amy Lenzo, and co-host FireHawk Hulin:

1) Introduction to the World Cafe
May 13/14, 19/20, & 22/23
5:30 – 7:30pm Pacific Time / 8:30 – 10:30am Hong Kong Time
Details & Registration

2) Hosting in the Digital Realm
Wednesdays, May 27, June 3, 10, & 17th
Details & Registration

3) Introduction to the World Cafe
July 8, 15, & 22 9:00 – 11:00am Pacific Time
Details & Registration

4) Sacred Habits: Reconnecting to Wisdom in the Digital Realm
July 7, 14, 21, & 28
Details & Registration

Each “Introduction to the World Cafe” course includes a full World Cafe designed to be a great introduction to the World Cafe experience, and a first step in understanding how to host them most effectively. The first starts this week and is particularly timed to be convenient for people in Australia and Asia, and for people in the Americas who prefer night courses. The July series is timed for days in the Americas and evenings in Europe.

Each of the two original offerings by Amy and FireHawk are deeply engaging, participatory, informative, and inspiring. They are both visionary and practical; visionary in that they reveal a new way of being online, and practical in terms of providing clear techniques and practices for achieving your goals.

The “Hosting in the Digital Realm” course has proved to be phenomenally successful, and due to the demand from people who couldn’t make the first one we offered in March, we’re very excited to be offering it again so soon. In the follow-up survey, 9 out of 10 graduates surveyed said the course had enhanced their hosting practice, that they now feel more confident hosting in the digital realm and have a deeper understanding of what is possible. This course will build on what we learned the first time around and be even better! Hosting in the Digital Realm is for those who want to bring people together in an online environment to take advantage of the reach and scale that this cutting-edge medium offers. It includes a behind-the-scenes look at the technology of online hosting, and there is an additional “hands-on” optional session for those who are interested in “driving” the technologies we’ll be using or just want to understand the technology in more depth.

Sacred Habits: Reconnecting to Wisdom in the Digital Realm” is designed to cultivate online habits that create space for a new experience online – in everything from our email correspondence to our participation in social media and webinars. It stands alone and is also a companion course that builds on and feeds into Hosting in the Digital Realm in a beautiful way, deepening and extending learning and awareness about working consciously within the digital realm.

I am deeply honored and delighted to see these courses make their way into the world, and hope you can join me for the journey by registering in one or both of them. If you have any questions, please contact me via email: amy[at]wedialogue[dot]com.
