The Summer of Love

street wisdom june 2018 munich

Little did I know that our Sunday tour in Munich coincided with an annual event of commemoration of the church, so that in various nieghborhoods, including the one we wandered in, roads were closed in order to accommodate processions of priests, musicians, and people. Though none of us were religious, it left each of us ...

Spring in Munich

Spring is always a great time to walk around the streets. And when the weather is warm and sunny, it’s a bonus. We gathered in a lovely little marketplace called Elisabethplatz and from there wandered the streets enjoying all the birdsong, flowering trees (those with pollen allergies didn’t seem to suffer too much) and warm ...

Planting Seeds in Munich

There is a first time for everything, and this was the first time I was late to a Street Wisdom event. Luckily I had some on-the-ground support (friend back up) and by the time I arrived everyone was already getting to know each other. I could tell immediately it was going to be a fun ...

Mindfulness in Munich

Munich April 2017 by susanne taylor

Just in time for the rain to pause, but the chilly temperatures of autumn to begin, we held the first Street Wisdom event in Munich. After the crowds of the Oktoberfest, it was wonderful to meet up with 7 pioneers and watch the streets wake up. We decided to do the event in English to accommodate ...

Sharing is Caring at ALE2016 in Paris

I attended an open conference of Agile Coaches (ALE 2016) for the first time and decided to do an experiment with Street Wisdom. The theme of the conference was, “We Share because We Care” – which spoke volumes about this professional group of people. I’d never been to an open conference before, so all I knew was ...
