The Flow Game

Often we get stuck on our most important questions because we can’t seem to think about them in a new way.

The Flow Game is a powerful tool for creating an interactive reflection, dialogue and action space for groups, teams and individuals. Everyone loves playing a board game and The Flow Game is deceptively simple. Groups are always surprised at how it creates a supportive, challenging, and unique opportunity to explore the present or future in an intuitive and insightful way.

The game can be used to dig into leadership, strategic or community issues, or personal questions. It helps an inquiry to go both deep and wide and enables the players to get a new perspective on their question and what lies beneath it.

A Flow Game can stand on it’s own or act as the centerpiece to a longer team building or organisational strategy session. Briefer elements of the Flow Game can also be offered during longer meetings or events.

What they say…


“The Flow Game is not just a game, and not just a set of questions in a deck of cards. The Flow Game is gathering around the camp fire with fantastic resources: the Flow Game, the participants and the deep wisdom of the game leader (Mary Alice). The result is amazing when you go deep into your most important questions in life, in work and in the future. You leave with a sense of direction, a sense of purpose and a sense of commitment.

“We have used the Flow Game in many different situations, with groups working together where the outcome is a mutual learning and understanding of each other and the next step. When diverse individuals come together for the first time they leave with a feeling of belonging, of finding the path and of growth.”

– Jonas Roth, Founder, MOVE Management, Sweden

“Our small team benefited enormously from playing the Flow Game. We were holding a concern about clarity of purpose and the game offered a powerful way to explore this. As we played so much more was revealed than we could possibly have imagined, each round sinking us deeper and deeper into our question. By the time we arrived at our final round, focused on exploring our individual contributions, we had achieved such a collective ‘flow’ that it was as though the game spoke through us – we were simply the conduits for it. Truly magical, and succeeded in deepening our team’s connections and shared understandings.”

– Jenny Blagdon, (formerly with) Family Law Pathways, Queensland, Australia

“I was touched by the depth brought to us by the Flow Game, and by the presence of Mary Alice. Her insights, her questions, her stories and her ability to see the patterns are truly a gift to anyone who wishes to explore deeply what is present in their life at this moment in time. And the beauty of it all is how Mary Alice offers her wisdom in such a subtle way, that it resonates with the wisdom you hold inside of you. Where many guides still try to “show” you the way, she masters the art of discovering it with you, here and now.”
