As a walk down any city street will tell you, modern life is a distracting and sometimes disorientating place to be. No wonder we shove in our ear-phones and plough on, screening out the background noise and those annoying strangers - lost in our thoughts.
I am David Pearl, a business innovator and founder of Street Wisdom, a not-profit global social movement which teaches people through WalkShops how to find clarity and inspiration from the city streets. The modern urban route to mindfulness.
As you’ll guess from the book’s title – Wanderful – the key to access inspiration every day is to unhook ourselves from our daily routine, all that rushing from A to B, and find new ways to wander. Not just physically but mentally too. Straight-line thinking is less and less helpful in our complex AI focused world. To find a way through all the twists and turns, we need
That requires us to get off the straight and narrow – wandering our way into answers.
In the book I’ll show you how to have your own Street Wisdom experiences – turning ordinary city streets into places where you can learn something extraordinary. And we’ll go further, discovering how you can wake up the internal guidance system we all have within us. It helps us set a direction and stay orientated. When in doubt it will nudge you towards choices that are going to be more rewarding, authentic and healthy. That’s why the book’s subtitle is 'Sat Nav for the Soul'.
It’s not written as a ‘How To’ book you read beginning to end. Where’s the wandering fun in that? Instead I am structuring it a bit like a cityscape you can browse and find your own path through. I will be sharing thoughts, stories, tips and techniques including a few from famous strangers we ‘bump’ into.
Let’s make this confusing planet a little bit more wonderful - and wanderful – together*.
