Guided hike across the Glyders

October 23, 2014  ·  Walks & Bike rides

As Dave mentioned in his blog post about Small Countries, there will be a guided hike across the Glyders on the 26th October, starting 10:30 at Ogwen Cottage. (Paid parking there or free parking along the road to the east)

The initial walk is open to all, and requires no more than trainers / sneakers and the usual rain jackets etc.; as we ascend the Devil’s Kitchen people can choose to drop out and continue around the lake.

After that it's a rough scree walk to the top of Glyder Fawr – this portion requires proper waterproof...

September 2, 2014  · 

Summer's nearly over, and with it our Early Bird discount for the CSM course in Washington DC from the 29th September to the 2nd October.

We'd like to share more about the opportunity to spend some quality one-on-one time with Tony Quinlan and Michael Cheveldave during the executive coaching session, which is bundled with Day 4 and is directly related to its afternoon session – learning how to work with narrative in facilitated sessions and in large volumes with SenseMaker®.

This covers more than just theory and broad brushes in...

There are still seats available at the Two Day SenseMaker® Design course in Amsterdam held over 16-17 September 2014. Enjoy EUR200 off the course fees if you sign up before 8 August 2014.

SenseMaker® is a highly innovative technique to gain insights and support decisions in complex spaces. However the full potential is not always seized by underestimation of the mind-shift required to understand the different approach of SenseMaker®.

The trainers, SenseGuide have been working together the last three years on more then 20...

And…I’m back!

September 25, 2012  ·  Memories, Musings, Reflections

Excitement mounts. In a couple days I'll be flying to Jakarta as one-sixteenth of Cappella Martialis to sing Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem together with the Reformed Oratorio Societies Jakarta and Singapore at the Aula Simfonia – incidentally, Jakarta's first and so far only symphony concert hall. The plan is to perform and then engage in post-concert rituals, which should hopefully rejuvenate one and all.

As you might've guessed the reason for my hiatus from blogging was a combination of part-time undergraduate studies, full-time...

It’s 4.03 and I can’t sleep…

July 31, 2010  · 

... ok, not really. It's about half eleven on a Saturday morning now and the final day of my stint as a guest blogger on CE. A vicious head pain got in the way of a planned post; however there's little paracetamol cannot suppress for a while or at least until I've finished off this post.

I've not blogged as much as I'd have liked to, but I've got back into the groove. As iterated in my introductory post, it is an honour and I've thoroughly enjoyed writing to a larger audience. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have. I'll...

Between introversion and extroversion

July 22, 2010  · 

Over the past month I have had a chance to delve into facilitating anecdote circles for a project. I did not expect to be surprised that it would enrich my professional experience, however what I find interesting is that I am slowly putting aside my natural inclination towards introversion, and letting a more ebullient side of me emerge.

Facilitation of any sort tends to be draining, as Aiden pointed out in one of his guest blog posts. The physical part I can keep up with; I just have to make sure I have enough coffee in my...

Of fishes, fishing, and feeding

July 21, 2010  · 

I have not been spoonfed, whether literally or figuratively, since I was, say, three and a half. Even as a young child, and probably because I am the firstborn, I was expected to be independent. I distinctly remember having books for toys, and being left to read them for hours on end. I remember being put on a bicycle at age 5 and being pushed off to pedal on my own, only to fall and get back up, over and over again until I learnt that scraping my knee wouldn't kill me and that I would, eventually, come to enjoy the feeling of wind...

The Spirit of Inquiry

July 20, 2010  · 

My favourite word since childhood is 'why'. When overused in childhood it is a cause of exasperation or amusement but in adulthood, it is vital to retain that spirit of inquiry, to never stop asking 'why'.

Most of us have a natural curiosity, a need to discover, to probe and prod, to suss out the whys and wherefores of any given situation or phenomenon.

Unless one is privileged to attend a school with a strong modern liberal arts or classical foundation, or to be schooled at home thusly, that spirit of inquiry is often...
