Sunny Afternoon at Granary Fountains

Granary Fountains

After a very mixed week weather-wise I woke up Sunday morning to blue skies and sunshine!  My immediate reaction was one of  total gratitude that we had the promise of a beautiful day ahead but then this was quickly followed by a severe attack of jittery nerves as the realisation hit me that today was ...

What is it like to be a Street Star?

Chichester

On Sunday 14th May I facilitated my first ever Street Wisdom event. It was a blast. The sun was beaming down on us, the market stalls were buzzing and 11 strangers embarked on a Chichester quest to find answers to some of the most important questions they hold. Some of you reading may be wondering about running your own Street ...

Seeking answers from the street

palace-garden-doodles

A friend suggested attending a Street Wisdom event being facilitated by an ex-colleague of hers, I was in the area, so I signed up and went along. It seemed fitting at the end of mental health awareness week to get involved in an event which, while it doesn’t explicitly say so, is grounded in mindfulness ...

Snow & Synchronicity in Stockholm

Stockholm

When we started working with our friends Ogilvy & Mather in Stockholm, we didn't expect snow (in April) nor did we realise the location was so significant. Take a look at what we discovered and why we are proud to have played our small part in World Peace! And if you were taking part in ...

Mindfulness in Munich

Munich April 2017 by susanne taylor

True to Spring in southern Germany, we had a day of warm sunshine and cool shade. Seven street adventurers from all over the Europe (Armenia, Sweden, Italy, Germany and France) gathered under the Bavarian Maypole. We even could have done the event in French, as everyone spoke French – too bad it’s one language I haven’t ...

Street Wisdom collage st anna platz by susanne taylor

As the weather was still cool, we decided to keep this a somewhat shorter version of Street Wisdom with a quick round of introductions and two perception tuning exercises before heading off on our individual quests. We seemed to be a group of people of diverse backgrounds (cultural and professional) with one thing in common – ...

Home from Home in Haryana

I was expecting Street Wisdom in a village outside Delhi to be extraordinary. But I am a stranger, looking at India though an outsider’s eyes. It’s hard not see even the most mundane Indian street as cinematic and exotic. But what about the wonderful group of professional coaches and facilitators I was introducing to the ...

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 ...

What you need to know about ‘Transformative Travel’

Transformative-Tourism

The story of Street Wisdom’s success captures for me the challenge and opportunity for tourism seeking to become truly transformative. It is not about looking to design products that enable travellers to see even more beautiful, remote, pristine spaces. Nor is it about creating those that provide access to distant peoples and their cultures. It ...

Mindfulness at Work are one of the pioneering companies bringing Mindfulness into the workplace in a way that everyone can easily connect with and learn from.

It’s a cold day for a hot chocolate!

Covent Garden

Whilst waiting for the brave group of street explorers to arrive, I began noticing all the brightly coloured clothing being worn by Londoners and tourists alike, to frighten off the crisp cold of a Winters day! As I stood scanning the streets for my fellow ...

Pre-holiday Quest in Haidhausen

Bordeaux Park Munich by Susanne Taylor

  It was the perfect Sunday afternoon in November for a quest. Sunny, crisp air, and lots of curiosity. In preparation for the up-coming time of pre-holiday hectic we gathered in the lovely neighborhood of Haidhausen in Munich. After sharing our favourite streets and where we got inspiration (lots of people mentioned “the shower!” and “outside in ...

Indelible Mark

I didn't know Mark Adams for very long.  Not in earth years anyway.  Which is suprising, when I look back at the impact he had on me and on Street Wisdom. He bounded into my life in 2013 like the human development 'tigger' that he was, brimming with enthusiasm for Street Wisdom and its potential.  It ...

Inspiring Times

FLO state…

Florentin is a neighbourhood of Tel Aviv that the average tourist might overlook.  But this bustling, hip, multi-cultural quarter - a magnet for new arrivals and refugees - turned out to be a delicious site for the city’s first ever night-time Street Wisdom.  It was hosted by Jonah Fisher and the team at FLO a ...
