Wisdom Fish are experts in transforming individuals, groups and organisational cultures through mindfulness.
Whether you're an individual who wants to understand their effect, a leader who wants to have impact, a team that wants to work smarter, or an organisation looking to develop and enrich its culture, our mindfulness programmes, leadership retreats, experiences and conference packages will furnish you with the tools you need to effect lasting change.
Mindfulness practice has been around for millennia – and has never been more relevant and useful as it is today. Its effects are well documented: improved cognitive function, boosted mood, reduced stress levels, increased capacity for empathy and so improvements in our ability to relate to others.
At Wisdom Fish we teach and develop individual mindfulness practice, but also look at the role mindfulness plays in our day to day lives whether we are senior managers or leaders in the workplace, teachers or parents supporting the development of young people or, indeed, teenagers looking to find their way in life - using traditional practices and our Building Blocks of Character and tools for Mindful Relationships to support the individual on their journey.
We also look at mindfulness in groups – the effect it has on others and how mindfulness can be built into groups and organisations using our Building Blocks of Culture to increase awareness, improve cohesion and support innovation, creativity, resilience, values and the authenticity of your brand.
If you want to experience what Wisdom Fish can offer you in terms of mindfulness practice for individuals, teams and indeed, whole cultures, our 8 week mindfulness programme is the place to start. You’ll learn all the foundation practices you’ll need as an individual and see how these and other practices can be used to support, enliven and unify groups. This programme is practical in nature – focussing on learning through experience. Click here to find out more.
The Wisdom Fish Conference Packages have grown and developed over many years working with partners in the UK and overseas. Our aim is to add to the delegate experience, fostering openness, awareness and interactivity through a range of options from live meditations with an experienced practitioner to audio meditations which can be shared with delegates & speakers pre, during and post event. We also offer sessions exploring the benefits of mindfulness and how to embed it into your organisation along with some creative, immersive experiences to add some fun along the way.
This is where we give individuals, teams and entire organisations some bespoke and focused attention. Delving deep into the rich, often untapped core of your culture, we work with you to explore how the group's activity, interactions, direction, wholeness and its philosophy, are supported and embedded through rituals, initiations, practices, storytelling and symbols. And we do this in a variety of ways - from focussed sessions with small groups in a forest to theatrical, interactive experiences for hundreds of participants.

It seems that stressed, goal-oriented leaders who multi-task are no longer where it’s at. No longer does Gordon Gekko’s motto ‘lunch is for wimps’ sit at the heart of corporate culture – and as someone who defines how good their day has been by the pleasure derived from their lunch, thank goodness for that! The ability to multi-task has been exposed as an ineffective skill in leaders.
