SOJO’S & DOJO.

THE SOJO’s

Sojo’s ‘Soujourn’ describes a temporary place of residence, often connected with a bigger journey.

Cricket has a long tradition of touring and of the ‘journey-man or woman’, the player who can adapt to ply their skills across a variety of teams, people and places

I seek to create an experience of liminality in my coaching relationships that enable, growth and change.

I call the journey ‘The Way of the Wild Wicket’ (WWW) where the focus is deeper understanding of life, love and spirit of the game. Win, lose or draw, this way enables ‘beautiful cricket moments’ to be created, celebrated and applied to the rest of life.

The WWW framework is the ‘6 Infielders’ (Mind Body Sets) and the 4 Boundary Riders (Social Value Sets) and at the centre, the one Wild Wicket of the Heart… stories of how life, love and the spirit of the game find a home and way within us.
