Street Wisdom: Wander Your Way to Insight, Ideas and Intention

Street Wisdom is based on the simple idea that insight, ideas, and inspiration are available to us all the time when we know how to look. During this guided 60-minute WalkShop, you will learn how to use your immediate surroundings - the streets in your neighbourhood or the rooms in your home - to find fresh answers to important questions.
