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 ...

Modern ballets and the magic in a brick wall

Brick Wall

20 February 2016. Things don’t look good. It’s 5 minutes before my first Street Wisdom event is due to start. Of the 14 sign-ups, not one has arrived. It’s pouring with rain. It’s cold. The church yard I’d carefully chosen in Covent Garden as a meeting point (with rain cover) is unexpectedly closed for renovation. ...

Inés Alonso and the AHA! moment that followed

I believe that people who come to Street Wisdom don’t expect anything from it, they don’t have any pre-conceived judgements about what’s going to happen and that’s the beauty of it. I felt myself, step by step, being guided by the architecture, the sounds of people talking, walking on the street, various colours…The Street Wisdom experience ...

Louise, Mindfulness at Work

Street signals

I derive so much pleasure from my business training Mindfulness in the Workplace, but recently I have been experiencing depletion due to an aspect of my business that has not sat well with my over-arching purpose - to help enable people to achieve their full potential and to flourish in all areas of their lives.
