I spent the afternoon at The Wellcome Collection with the Leadership Impact group I am supporting (an impact group is a bit like an action learning set). It’s the first time I’ve visited the collection and I highly recommend you give it a try. One of the reflections of the group was how the space and environment we are in changes how we do work and it’s something we don’t pay enough attention to. The Wellcome Collection is a really interesting space with lots to stimulate, provoke and to get you thinking.
Ann Veronica Janssens’ installation was a particularly bonkers experience, walking around inside in dense pink fog definitely challenged my perception and conciousness.
The Tibetan Buddhist yogic and meditational practice exhibition was absolutely brill too with real relevance to healthcare and compassionate leadership. This quote was popular amongst my gang.
To realise the essence of conciousness…
- Approach what you find repulsive
- Help whoever you think you cannot
- Let go of anything you are attached to
- Go to places that scare
you, such as cemeteries
- Be mindful
- Discover the Buddha within
