Dear Friend, 

Building on the success of the first World Cafe Signature Learning Program offered through Fielding Graduate University earlier this year, we are pleased to announce our newest collaboration, Hosting World Caf�: The Fundamentals starting September 30th (registration closes on Sept 20th).


If you would like to be part of a highly interactive, peer-learning exploration into what makes the World Caf� such a powerful and effective process; if you would like to develop your capacity as a conversational leader and learn how to create the conditions for meaningful communication in your own organizations and community, this course is for you. 


In response to participant feedback, we've extended the program to seven weeks and introduced optional "live" weekly clinics for those who want to maximize the opportunities to meet and learn from each other. 


This 4.5 week program will be co-presented by Fielding adjunct faculty member Bo Gyllenpalm and Amy Lenzo from the World Caf� Community Foundation. Both are known for their pioneering work in bringing the World Caf� process and principles into the online environment, and for excellent mentoring. 


Delivering 6 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) and 19 CCEUs (Coaching Continuing Education Units), the course will give participants valuable credits and important hands-on experience in developing World Cafe hosting skills.


A recent graduate says:


"Last year I participated in a World Caf� and was very impressed by what I experienced. I am so pleased to have done this course, as I now have the tools at hand to engage in this work myself." 


You too will come out of this course with a good understanding of the intellectual and philosophical foundations that support the World Caf� experience, and a solid grounding in World Caf� hosting practices that will help you apply the seven World Caf� design principles to your own life and work.    


We hope to see you there!
