Following the success of our pilot Street Wisdom event as part of the World Wide Wander, RSA Frome will be running a Saturday Street Wisdom walk in the town in November.

If you’re looking for new perspectives, help with getting clarity, or solutions to specific issues, Street Wisdom can provide you with the inspiration and space for that ‘eureka!’ moment to happen.  Feedback from event one included, “Surprisingly insightful”, “I savoured the moments”, and “It allowed time for the unexpected to happen.”

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.
