Across the weekend of 25-27 September, Street Wisdom is hosting its fourth World Wide Wander. A series of free online and in-person Street Wisdom events across the world, where hundreds of people will hit the streets to unlock fresh thinking, solve problems and find answers – join us! We’ll be hosting a rolling stream of online events, led by different facilitators from across the globe – so you can tune-in and tune-up at any time. Share your experience and see where others are wandering using #WorldWideWander on socials.

Take a worldwide wander in Whitby! This FREE ‘urban mindfulness’ event is hosted by Jacquie Cole, who has been a Street Wisdom volunteer for 3 years. Jacquie, who also runs mindfulness sessions in the local area as ‘Mindful Meets’, is a passionate advocate of the Street Wisdom approach. ‘When I attended my first Street Wisdom workshop in Ripon, I was amazed at the insights it brought out for all of us. It shows that you don’t have to be sitting on a remote mountain or at an exclusive retreat to benefit!’  At a time when many of us are re-evaluating life or seeking inspiration, Street Wisdom could be just what we need.

Learn how to access the urban environment and find fresh answers to personal or work-related questions with Street Wisdom: a powerful, three-hour guided experience that uses the streets as an invisible university. This inspirational tool has been adopted by corporations, coaches and social groups across the globe – with profound results.

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 signs and signals that we normally ignore, rich stimulus that can help us learn something new.

Street Wisdom takes place in three parts. First, a street guide helps you tune up your senses so you can pick up far richer information from the environment that you would normally. Then you’re off on a journey by yourself – your street quest – where you ask a question and see what answers present themselves. You don’t have to go far but it’s amazing what you can learn. In the final 60 minute session everyone gathers together to share what happened and, more often than not, wonder at how magical an ordinary street can become when you’re really aware of those hidden messages, chance meetings and unexpected discoveries.

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.

Invented by creative maestro David Pearl in 2013 and developed with the help of business beatnik and fellow author Chris Baréz-Brown, Street Wisdom has rapidly grown into a global movement. Our mission is to make every street in every city a free source of inspiration for everyone, every single day.

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, or taken into the workplace and used to inspire teams and colleagues.

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.
