My very first foreign Open Space foray was to Taipei in Taiwan. It tugs at
my heart still the memory of my time there. There was a warmth and

Below a link to some pics from 2009. You will see many familiar faces from
our Open Space community. *Life long friendships happen at WOSonOS!!*
Now in 2017, WOSonOS is happening in another part of Taiwan – a country
that offers such beauty and hospitality.
I include a link to my 2009 Taiwan photos...dedicated to Gail West and crew
with warm wishes and big hugs to Jane and the 2017 host team!
