Enter the Flow Dojo

Creative Collaboration, Serious Play

This is quite an interesting initiative and video to check out. The flow genome project is going to build the world’s first dedicated Flow research and training centre. They call it the flow dojo.

The term “Flow” was first coined by creativity researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi after his research uncovered a common experience to artists, extreme sports explorers, musicians and creatives of all walks of life.

Csíkszentmihályi describes flow as “being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.”

We think the flow genome project is onto something here and are excited to see it develop. We especially want to play around with the rad devices in the dojo.
