Be part of the Second Annual Street Wisdom - World Wide Wander, a global event happening on the weekend of Sept. 14 – 16.
Join Mindful New Mexico in a 3 hour walk to stop the clock, step out of the familiar and find wonder right beneath your feet. Our group will be one of similar walks happening in dozens of countries.
Use the Streets to Connect with Something New
What is it? Street Wisdom is based on the proposition that the environment and people around us are full of wisdom that we largely overlook or ignore. By slowing down and using the technology of Street Wisdom, we tune into the wisdom of “answers are everywhere – you just have to ask.”
Think of this as a three-hour experience in 3 x 1 hour sections. We will be weaving our time together in and out – to connect with self, each other and our environment. Sometimes together, sometimes on your own.
In the first section, we sharpen our senses so we can pick up the signals that the street (and indeed life) is sending us; things that we might miss when we hurry by. In the second section, you ask a question that you bring and listen for what answers present themselves to you. In the third section, we reflect and share what the street taught us when we are aware of the hidden messages to be found in chance meetings and unexpected discoveries.
Other groups in other countries will be doing this at the same time.
1:30 - 4:30 pm
What do you need to bring?
An open mind, good walking shoes, water, and comfortable clothes for the expected weather of the day.
Also, bring a question around something happening in your life for which you’d like fresh answers. “What is the meaning of life?' is too wide, “ What will I have for dinner” is too narrow.
Questions like “ Should I let the grandkids move in with me?; How can I turn my hobby into a business? “ are the kinds of questions that others have asked. But this will be your own personal quest.
We will be walking on sidewalks and streets that can sometimes be uneven. During our time together, our walking will be at a gentle and conversational pace. We hope that you also slow down the pace during the time you are street questing on your own .
