A Joy To Be Involved. A Joy To Help Out.

RSA Street Wisdom March17

There is something very special about taking part in a Street Wisdom and it is even more pleasurable to have the privilege to lead an event. It never fails to have an impact in some way on everyone involved and sometimes that impact can be profound. It is incredibly rewarding to have the opportunity to make a difference for a complete stranger. Strangers they may start but by the end of an event, the shared experience feels like it’s been had with great friends.

We love our RSA events as they attract large numbers of diverse people. Last week found almost 60 wanderers came along and we had a valiant team of 8 street leaders drawn from the ranks of our lovely Street Wizards both RSA fellows and non-follows.

When it came to 5pm people just didn’t want to stop sharing their experience. This was the case for participants and facilitators alike. So big thanks to Ines Alonso, Sarah Storm, Michelle Preston, Justine Clement, Caroline Bond, Rachel Crowther, Kev Wyke, Tony Woods and to Mark Hall and the team at the RSA.

We would love to hear more from those who took part so please add comments below.

I think Tony summed up the general feeling very well:

What a magnificent & fulfilling experience! Reflecting after facilitating my first ever Street Wisdom group of 6 wonderful people, I can’t help regretting that I didn’t do it sooner. It’s such a powerful process – the insights and answers that my group gathered from their wanderings around Covent Garden and the Strand was quite moving – and the process is just so simple to use. Thanks for the opportunity Street Wisdom guys. Can’t wait to do it again soon. TW

One thought on “A Joy To Be Involved. A Joy To Help Out.

  1. It was indeed a joy to be involved and facilitate. I always learn loads from participants. This time it happened in an ingenious manner. I was concerned because one of the participants was a friend of mine who didn’t show up for the sharing. After the event I found out that the experience had put her in touch with her needs, and had left the event in order to pay attention to those needs. I always struggle breaking the rules: if I agreed that I will attend an event, I have to be there till the end. Street Wisdom has always witty ways to show us the answers if we pay attention. I thank my friend for being an example.
