Dancing in the streets of Toronto

 The Toronto Street Wisdom adventure was with a small but mighty group.
As things go, we lost four folks to work conflicts but five of us took to the Toronto streets on a lovely spring day and had a great time. We met in a small parkette in the Bloor Annex area and gathered for this picture in front of Gwendolyn MacEwen’s memorial statue.
Ms Mac Ewen, a famous Canadian poet, spoke to our small band of adventures from the granite. She said: “But it is never over….We are still dancing, dancing.”
And, so inspired and acknowledging that our learning was never over, we set off on our Street Wisdom adventure, insights were gained, lessons were learned and everyone seems to want to do it again.
This is the second Street Wisdom I have facilitated and I look forward to the next and the next….

We gathered, just a small group of 5 , on a cold and windy day by the sea to try our first Street Wisdom. There were some great insights into the questions that we brought to the process. My question was” what is next for me in my life?”
I cannot say a path opened up in the sky before me but my confidence and strength to find the next path was definately bolstered.
I think my question was a bit vague and that was a good learning for future events.
We did not take a group picture but I have posted here a shot of the surfer statue where we met and from where we sallied forth to explore our environment.
This process is so easy and offers not just great insight for the duration of the exercise but I feel it has fundamentally changed how I will look at the world around me. Answers are everywhere, inspiration is everywhere, we just need to be reminded to look about us.

I can’t wait to try this again with a larger group.
We had a wonderful and insightful discussion in the 3 rd hour and shared what we experienced and learned and possible next steps.
The 4 exercises at the beginning are excellent preparation- I was the facilitator so I had less time than the others but I was amazed by the beauty I saw in everyday things around me when asked to seek the beauty in things.
