Join The Circle on Tues 26 March for a very special free workshop exclusively for women on: The Thinking Environment.

Everything begins with thinking. If our thinking is good, our decisions are good, our actions are good, our outcomes are good. So what does it take for us to think for ourselves – with rigour, imagination, courage and grace?

This interactive workshop is an opportunity to learn about the Ten Components which make up The Thinking Environment and think together about how their practical application to the structures of life and work improves the quality of everyone’s thinking and of the outcomes of every interaction.

This is an opportunity to understand how The Thinking Environment could apply to your life and work.

This workshop uses the ‘Trade School’ format, an open learning space that runs on barter. Pay for class with a barter item (like food, supplies, or advice), you can choose your item when you register.

Date: Tuesday 26 March
Time: 6 – 8pm
Location: The Library Lab 95 High Road NW10 2SF (map)
