Product description

This is a collection of stories, analogies and metaphors that invite us to pause and consider what is really important in our lives, our work, and ourselves. They challenge us to re-connect the different parts of our lives, recognise how easy it is to get distracted by contemporary culture and the pace of modern life, and to pay attention to whatever deeper parts of ourselves seek expression.The stories invite us to slow down, take more time to reflect, experience the world from wider perspectives, and make wiser and more sustainable choices. They invite us to put ourselves squarely in the centre of the on-going story that is our life, to take greater responsibility for connecting to what serves us, others, and the wider context, and to find a greater variety of ways to express ourselves fully through our life, our work, and everything we can be.Varied and wide ranging the stories are pragmatic, some spiritual, some light-hearted, some provocative, some work related, while others still are closer to home. All of them challenge the reader to consider the life they are currently living, and ways they could deepen and enhance it for themselves, and others in a wide variety of applications and contexts.

Review quote

A wake up call, an opportunity to stop, consider, and evaluate how we can truly be delivered through a series of insightful, timeless and often humorous stories, anecdotes and observations. The Salmon of Knowledge is a compelling reading both in its entirety or as a coaching, leadership development and personal development aide. -- Richard Coulthwaite "Finance Director, Underwriting Brit Insurance"
