Experience Flow, Fluidity, and Slippin n Slidin for Tree Stories 2119

by Stephen Hobbs in wellth movement  | 4 Comments

Tree Stories 2119 is about experiencing the flow and fluidity nature exhibits  

From our ecoliteracy series ... 

Last week was about "cycles" - this week it's about "flow" 

And stay for the sounds of a forest river stream --> 


The second ecoliteracy tenet is "flow" like understand the flow cycles of the sun energy through the plant and animal ecosystems ... like the water systems from rain to oceans and the associated drinking system ... 

Understanding these terms:

Flow ... about movement in time and space 

  • movement of a liquid - gas - electricity steadily and continuously
  • your movement from one place to another steadily
  • your mental state where challenges and competence are aligned - you are in the flow Wikipedia reference
  • exchange of energy to the benefit of all involved 

Fluidity ... the ability to move easily like honey versus water 

Grandparents and Flow (see * below)

And so ... where and when might you encounter flow and fluidity?

As a parent - grandparent - family or friend - find opportunities to share an example of "flow" in nature with the children you know Daily-Weekly --> Saturday morning-Sunday afternoon:

  • View the river or creek with an associated cautionary note
  • Feel the wind in front of and behind a building 
  • Watch the sap of a tree
  • Experience the mist within, from a higher spot
  • Blow bubbles - and chase them
  • Look at where ice melts in the Spring or during a Chinook
  • Encourage children to experience an activity they enjoy, enjoy so much - and ask what happened
  • Look at your breath on a cold day 
  • Watch the clouds 
  • See the birds flying alone and together 
  • Watch trafic flow
  • Watch the flow of people walking  
  • *You walking from your house to the stream and back (LOL)

    And, your suggestion is: ______________

For the flow examples listed above what can influence/impact the fluidity of the flow?

  • Identify obstacles that divert flow (e.g., rock in the creek)
  • Become aware of someone calling you for dinner
  • Watch the impact of traffic lights 
  • Determine your placement in feeling the wind

    And, your suggestion is: ______________
  • Read about Leonardo's flow insights

Yet guessed it - it's time for the slippin 'n slidin ... 

How about 

A simple water slide on the front lawn ...
A simple ice slide on the front lawn ...
Visiting the water park - oh yea!
Gliding down the ski slope!

Yup - add some slippin 'n slidin = flow with a mix of fluidity
Give it a go ))smiles

Moving into Education Suggestions

Like cycles, look for ways to appreciate flow in your life - at work - when volunteering - your health & wellness - when playing and recreating ...

Look for the "meaningful pattern recognition" 

  • When you see a pattern - you can recognize it - and give it meaning.
  • When you seek to understand something (give it meaning) - can you discern a recognizable pattern?
  • Where you see a pattern - what meaning do you assign it in case you see it again or want to replicate it? 
  • Another of your creation ____________

Over to you ...

  1. Which one of these flow situations can you explain/describe today?
  2. Which one requires your research?
  3. Which combination requires your shared research with the children and grandchildren?
discovery conversation

Educating - Learning Cycle

If you have a deeper interest in your experience of "flow" - consider learning about the Educating-Learning Cycles ... Reference: Types

And if you were to explain the learning cycle
while exploring/discovering a topic
about FLOW in nature, in nature, because of nature ...
Consider how deep and rich the experience of learning (the process)
and the subsequent retention/use of the learning (the takeaways) could be ...
