My name is Francis Briers and this is a site for my work.

In facilitating I help people to cultivate their own wisdom, in teaching I apply ancient wisdom to modern life, and in consulting I help organisations to cultivate wise leadership.

Most of my work involves deep experiential training and facilitation and an embodied approach - by which I mean, that our bodies are involved in the learning process, not just taxi's to get our brains in the room!

Below are two of my favourite quotes which may give you a feel for my perspective:


Wisdom doesn’t consist of knowing specific facts or possessing knowledge of a field. It consists of knowing how to treat knowledge: being confident but not too confident; adventurous but grounded. It is a willingness to confront counterevidence and to have a feel for the vast spaces beyond what’s known.” - David Brooks

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."  - Howard Thurman
