Create an “I Wonder” Wall
When we weave compassionate conversations, big ideas, and a habit of reflection into our everyday lives, we encourage ongoing inquisitiveness. An “I Wonder Wall” helps you create a visual and 3-dimensional space (and reminder) to engage in these practices on a regular basis.
How To: Print the pdf or re-write the questions on your own piece of paper. Decorate or design as you see fit, creating a post to put up in a shared space (e.g. family dining room). Next, write down some of your “I Wonder’s” and attach them to your “I Wonder” poster. Keep paper and pens nearby, so anyone can add an “I Wonder” question whenever they feel moved. At mealtime, pop into and out of the questions and process in a relaxed way, sometimes looking for factual answers, sometimes exploring them without a need for research. Enjoy the process of exploration!
