‘Street Dope’ on Harley Street, April 30th, 2015

This was the first Street Wisdom event that I have led, and it was wonderful to see the participants so easily tune into the environment and start to draw inspiration from the streets. The area looks quite empty at first and I wondered whether the experience would be as rich as my first in the colourful streets of Soho.

How wrong I was. As you tune in you notice so much in these fascinating streets. Deep history, complex architecture, lushious roof gardens falling over balconies, docs, quacks and quirks, menders, the broken and the mended.

When the wonderers returned they were full of ideas and inspiration, and had answers and attitudes that will make a difference.

My favourite piece of participant feedback was when one of the group referred to one of the tune up sessions as “the Street Dope bit”. It showed me that the whole team saw through the exercise that we all have the ability to tune into our own built in supply of neuro-chemicals that can relax us everyday, and inspire answers to any question we may have.

Soho London April 23rd

Saw things about this street (Greek St) that I hadn’t seen before. Opened up very quickly to the innate beauty that is always present but often hidden. Amazing to see myself and others “slow down” so quickly amongst the bustle of Soho and begin to tap into our own wisdom.

For me I was suprised that as soon as I started asking my question answers appeared from everywhere. Sometime quite directly (Be at One – Open Till 3AM) told me I need to make it easier for people to contact each other outside of normal hours, a beautifully crafted conductors baton opened up a meaningful analogy about conducting an orchestra and the art of direction.

I noticed things I hadn’t seen were here before, and that in itself told me that there was more to this street than often meets the eye. Open to that truth, I was quickly able to get answers to my questions. The process was not only eye opening, but satisfying and enjoyable.

Thank you David for opening me up to the Wisdom of the Street, I look forward to sharing this with others.
