Event description

Description

The RSA Mindfulness Network are running Street Wisdom in London.

Street Wisdom is a powerful, innovative game-changer that uses the streets as an invisible university. Over three hours, you’ll learn how to access the urban environment and find fresh answers to personal or work-related questions.

Experience for yourself how this inspirational tool, adopted by corporations, businesses, and social groups across the globe, can produce profound results as you explore the streets of London. The session will be led by the RSA Mindfulness Network.

This event is free to attend but please book your place quickly as places are limited.

What is it? At the centre of Street Wisdom lies the idea that every moment is extraordinary and every street is full of inspiration - that there’s no such thing as an ordinary street, just ordinary thinking. Few of us give ourselves time or permission to really focus on the world around us but the urban landscape is full of signs and signals that we normally ignore; rich stimuli that can help us learn something new. In just three hours of walking and wandering, participants have resolved problems that have dogged them for years, found new business ideas, changed careers, discovered new directions, and learned how to deal differently with life and love.

Who is it for? It is relevant for anyone struggling with the day-to-day personal stuff, tackling a challenge in the workplace, figuring out what's next, or seeking a creative breakthrough. Once experienced, it can be easily replicated on a personal basis, taken into the workplace and used to inspire teams and colleagues, or used in a professional capacity by therapists, coaches, and urban planners.

What do you bring? An open mind, good walking shoes, and clothes for all weather. A question you'd like answered: not too big ('what is the meaning of life?'), not too small ('what shall I have for lunch?'), but somewhere in the middle - a burning issue to which you'd like fresh answers.

Watch the short video: Street Wisdom - answers are everywhere.
