About Street Wisdom

Street Wisdom is…

In complex times it can be hard to figure what’s next: at work, in life. Street Wisdom is a fresh way to find the path that’s right for you.

It’s radically simple. And free.

We are…

We’re a social enterprise founded by David Pearl, that offers mind-opening WalkShops on streets all over the world. Run by volunteers, our immersive public experiences turn the city into your creative playground – a place to unlock fresh thinking and set new direction.

Whatever your question, on Street Wisdom you discover Answers Are Everywhere.

How it works…

A dynamic mix of psychology, creativity, mindfulness and cognitive science Street Wisdom is based on the simple idea that wisdom is available all the time when we know how to look.

We tune up your senses. You ask a question and go for a wander. Then share what you learned. It’s that simple.

Experience a WalkShop…

Our public events are offered free around the world thanks to the generosity of our volunteer street leaders.

You can find one here.

Or you can lead one yourself following our simple instructions. Simply sign up here to access training and support.

You can get a taste of Street Wisdom by downloading a free audio guide here.

We also design bespoke business events to help organisations and those who lead them find creative ways through important challenges.
