So what happened on last week’s show? Lian was with Mamoon Yusaf is a Thought Leader, Peace Activist, and Transformational Coach of the Muslim community. In this show we explored why there are so many Muslim terrorists if, as Mamoon asserts, Islam is a religion of peace. We got into lots of things in this episode including the real reason that people commit acts of terrorism, the context of the verses in the Quran that terrorist use to justify their acts, and why describing terrorists as Islamic terrorists is allowing Isis to win.
If you missed that then you missed out so… subscribe to the show and catch up with that episode after this show!
And this week’s show is with Floris Koot. Floris is a ‘Play Engineer’ active in many fields. He co-founded a revolutionary school (Knowmads), developed a sport that breaks all the conventions (Switchball) and invented a piano method (learn to play freely in 15 minutes)! He trains a facilitates innovative processes.
He believes ‘we’ only win when everyone wins. Globally many people and organizations seek to work so that the whole will flourish through their activity. Floris contributes to this Gentle Revolution happening. He helps individuals and organisations to become more purpose driven, free and playful.
In this show, we explored the power of play – what exactly it is, why it’s important and what are the benefits of us playing more.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Play frees us up to explore outside boundaries, breaks through patterns, think creatively and without focus on ticking boxes the ‘right way’.
- We all can learn fast and effectively through play – in fact, Floris said, it’s how nature has designed for us to learn.
- Play connects us – it allows us to bring our full selves, our presence, to another person or situation and allows us to communicate beyond the bounds of defined roles and expectations.
Resources and stuff that we spoke about:
- The Play Ethic by Pat Kane
- Homo Ludens by Johan Huizinga
- Finite & Infinite Games by James P. Carse
