Anne is the ground beneath my feet as I do the work I do with the World Cafe community. I often think of her.
When I am stuck, I ask myself, “What would Anne do?”, and hear her lovely voice in my heart inviting me to breathe, appreciate the blessings of the moment, remember all the powers and spirits who are holding & guiding me, and then take the simple, minimal, elegant next step, whatever that is.
All the time I have spent in her presence has been a precious gift, a blessing I carry with me always.

This is one of a series of blog posts to honor our Elder Anne Dosher, who has been a wonderful guide and steward since the World Cafe was born in 1995. To celebrate Anne’s 95th birthday, we are collecting stories and greetings from the global World Cafe community.
World Cafe is “Stepping In” on a new level – increasing our capacity to engage most effectively with the challenging issues of our times. Here’s an overview of what we’re envisioning and some of the priorities we’ve identified to start. Please join us and contribute what you can to support this important work.
This blog post is one response to an open invitation to our global community – to step up & express what the gift of the World Cafe means to YOU. We welcome your posts, as well as your comments and shares on this post.
