The lesson I accessed today was the Power of Play. In the words of Stuart Brown – play is not just fun, it’s vital! 🙂

Reflections: Play is important in scribing for at least 3 reasons. Firstly, play involves curiosity, and curiosity is a key ingredient for good scribing. Curiously listen, observe and connect. Secondly, play involves improvisation – dancing with other ‘players’ and responding to the situation as it changes. It is the same for scribing – the willingness and desire to interact with a group’s energy, direction of their conversation; allowing their thinking, feelings and ideas to carry oneself down the streams (or rapids?!) of discovery. Thirdly, play is fun! And so for scribing – you need to enjoy doing it and have fun at it! Scribing should not be a chore. If it begins to feel like a burden, then it could be a sign to step away and recharge oneself, or find out where the knots are.

Stuart Brown says play is more than fun
