Triggering Flow States

A toolbox of techniques to supercharge creativity, focus and collaboration

When we access a flow state, we are utterly absorbed, focussed and creatively inspired.
This one day workshop gives you practical tools for triggering productive flow states through a variety of techniques, exploring ways to eliminate procrastination and dissolve creative blocks. Once you know how to create the conditions for flow to happen, you can adapt the tools for all your projects and to begin to cultivate a life where you simply have more moments of being utterly present, unexpectedly inspired and connected to your innate creativity, ultimately transforming work into something that feels more like play. 

A two hour taster session is also available.

Ritual at Work

A masterclass in the creation of 21st century rituals for work

Does your work life feel like one constant stream of demands with no pause for reflection, emotion, transition and celebration? Or perhaps your company is in transition – entering a new market, shifting to different leadership, restructuring the organisation – and you need a focus for the shift to a new chapter? Whether it’s a ritual to welcome a team member, to launch a product, to mourn the death of a start up or reflect on the end of a project, the world of work benefits from rituals just as much as the more familiar transitions of love, birth and death. The creation of a toolkit for secular ritual provides the structure, the community focus and the imaginative punctuation we all need to work at our best. Whether you work alone or in a team, this workshop will teach you how to use ritual in the workplace for satisfying completions and inspiring new beginnings.

Reconnect with your imagination, the natural world & the power of story

A half day workshop in a natural setting, learning and practising an ancient technique that allows us to fire up our innate imagination, our connection with nature, as well as explore the power of storytelling, both for yourself and others. This is a simple, powerful, yet playful way of connecting deeply with ourselves and each other, as well as a practical tool for active meditation, meaning making and profound communication.



“Having been through the range of similar workshops in the Silicon Valley tech world, Tiu's approach is better than any of them. It was mischievous and thought-provoking.”
