The Wisdom in Wandering
Finding Wisdom in Marple’s Streets
Answers are everywhere or so we discovered at our Street Wisdom event in Marple Friday 29th September, part of the World Wide Wander.
Street Wisdom is an everyday creative practice you use as you walk. A fusion of mindfulness, neuroscience, imagination and wellness, it unlocks our minds and unblocks our creativity with every step.
First of all, the group tuned-in to the surroundings, slowing down, noticing what they were drawn to and sensing beauty all around.
We then embarked on a personal quest to find answers to questions which may have been percolating for a while or which may have come to them that morning. With sharpened senses and a tuned-up navigation system, we wandered and connected with what we noticed around us, feeding our imagination and finding subtle (or sometimes loud!) insights and new knowledge.
To conclude our quest, we gathered for coffee and cake at The Locks independent coffee house to share stories of what inspired us, what we learned and how we will use our learning after the event. We all left with new connections, new ideas and new inspiration.
The event was part of the global World Wide Wander, where people from Marple joined others in Amsterdam, Nairobi, Sheffield, Bangalore and San Francisco on a Street Wisdom quest.
