Learning how to live harmoniously and listen to Nature
A process that allows for the collective intelligence of a group to emerge thanks to cooperation, active listening and body.
The group thinks as one individual
STORMO® is a participative process that allows for the collective intelligence of a group to emerge and is inspired by this same intelligence used by birds to organize the flight of their flocks. Integral to the project is a workshop which focuses on using simple exercises and games to promote both internal and external awareness. This fosters deep listening and an attunement to one’s environment. In a short amount of time, participants merge the awareness of themselves with the awareness of the group, allowing them to move in harmony as one single being.
Years of research
thousands of participants involved.
We have conducted countless sessions of STORMO®, taking it from international festivals to multinational corporations, from elementary schools to scientific research, and involving thousands of people over the span of twelve years.
In 2015, the Leonardo Da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, Italy hosted a special session of this project during which a team of French researchers measured the amount of harmony developed in the group of participants. A specific behavior was identified as an indicator for the group to organize itself in an optimal way, inspired by natural structures used to improve stress responses, problem solve, and seize opportunities.
From team building to team being: a unique experience that transcends boundaries.
The process concretely develops active listening through simple, physical, and immediate relationships that allow us to see others beyond the boundaries of their roles, social classes, cultures, languages, and nationalities. With STORMO® we bring to the forefront resources buried deep within bodies’ memory, allowing them to experience the excitement of discovering themselves as part of a group that in turn experiences the thrill of feeling like a single autonomous entity.
A versatile and flexible project: STORMO® develops in different forms and is designed to engage even the most heterogeneous of groups
