How can I help?

About me

Humus – the fertile soil for new growth – in many ways symbolises my work: releasing the old stories that don’t serve anymore, and midwifing new narratives that catalyse synergy and wise action in people, organisations and communities; especially when navigating complex challenges together. By engaging in deep dialogue, unearthing implicit resources, and seeing the big picture, pathways are created towards more life-affirming futures.
My work includes hosting (1)  multistakeholder strategic dialogues; (2)  participatory conferences in which there are no spectators - everybody's contributions are invited; (3) workshops to reclaim the joy and power of dialogue and deep listening to oneself, the other, and the future that is emerging (with a bit of our creative help).

While rooted in beautiful Slovenia, I work internationally; and enjoy exchange and collaboration with my many tribes across the globe: Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter, International Association of Facilitators; Center for Nonviolent Communication; The Circle WaySchool of Lost Borders; Reinventing Organizations.
