The Spiritual Connection to Eye Contact by Michelle Passmore

Remember that we are one and fundamentally united.
Something magical happens during extended eye contact (also called eye gazing or soul gazing). This moment arises when we forget that there’s a “you” and a “me” and we become engulfed in an experience of unity. Personalities, gender, social class, beliefs etc all melt away. And we are left with this recognition of the other as purely a reflection of ourselves. A sparkle of the Continue reading

Eye contact: A challenge with real benefits by David M.G. Lewis, PhD

This is about humans, but first we’re going to talk about wolves and dogs. You’re not a wolf, and that’s a good thing. Wolves are extremely intelligent animals who are adept at navigating their own ecology, including through complex strategic cooperative hunting. But even after being reared by humans, wolves can’t see humans as social partners (Gácsi et al., 2005; Miklósi et al., 2003). Dogs, on the other hand, can – and they benefit from seeing us as individuals who can support them in times of need.

A few years ago, scientists conducted several research studies investigating the social and cognitive differences between dogs and wolves (Gácsi et al., 2005; Miklósi et al., 2003). In one study Continue reading

Peter Sharp, Founder of the Eye Contact Experiment

I am the founder of The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment and would like to share a little more information about the Official Event T-shirts to assist your understanding of why they’re available and how they make this event possible.

FOREVER FREE
First and foremost, this global event is and will always be completely free for all of humanity to experience. This is to ensure all people from all backgrounds are able to feel a proud part of the event, we believe that if you want to inspire a movement of world peace you need to enable everyone to be a part of it. That being said, it does cost months of time and thousands of dollars to coordinate such a large and inspiring event so we had to find another way to make it work.

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD…

On Sept 2016 thousands of people in over 170 cities made history, with the World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment. This is OUR story.

We held space for each other… In Dublin, we restored peoples’ faith in humanity. We challenged each other in London, to look beyond the stories and judgements, seeing only the same 5 year old spirit inside each of us. In New Zealand, we shared a moment with others on our way to work and back again, with a beaming smile. We moved each other in Ramallah, changing the world by changing ourselves. We gave each other presence in Ljubljana.

We made friends in Deventer, Cologne and Naples. We created light and energy in Tel Aviv. We observed each other’s faces in Leuven. In Buenos Aires, we started a love revolution. In Lyon, we met our soulmate. We opened hearts in Zurich. In New Smyrna Beach, our eyes filled with tears of peaceful coexistence and love. In Columbus, we allowed ourselves to be vulnerable. In Perth, in Vancouver, in Green Bay, in Stockholm, we were ready to be seen, realising there were no “others” just ‘us’…a mirror of beauty and love.

In Caracas, strangers invited each other to the ‘party,’ reaching out to share our event. In Belgrade, we travelled miles just to participate and share. In Oslo, we crossed our own boundaries, despite our discomfort to participate. In Cape Town, we uplifted sadness, giving a reason to leave the house that day. In Brazil, we enabled an ‘Ah Ha’ moment to solve an ongoing dilemma. In Kuala Lumpa, we connected without words. In Las Palma’s, we were a Syrian refugee’s welcome.

NOW, our story continues. On Sept 23rd, join thousands of people in 270 cities all around the world, in Australia through to Venezuela, to make history once again. Be part of the 100%. Be present. Be counted. Be a mirror. Be part of the global solution to war, terrorism, and ‘Us and Them syndrome’… Human Connection. We’re all in this together! Join the event here.

Imagine If Every Train Had a Social Carriage Like This!

You step inside and welcome staff greet you pleasantly with a smile at the door. You are given gentle acknowledgement for your unique presence on this train. You find a seat with a comfortable pillow on it and notice fresh and thought provoking conversation cards hanging from the railings above. Another passenger who is sitting next to you kindly turns and decides to ask you one of the questions; “For what in your life are you most grateful?”. Before you’ve even had time to think about awkwardly moving towards your mobile phone, you’ve been engaged with an authentically interesting question.

You look around the rest of the carriage and notice, Continue reading

Why Stopping for One Minute Could Change Your Life.

In a world where people are scared to talk to strangers, knock on their neighbour’s doors, dance, sing, speak their mind or express themselves in public (the very things that came naturally to us as children), isn’t it time we began breaking through these self limiting beliefs? 

Born in Perth, Western Australia; the most isolated city in the world where ‘nothing ever happens’, it seems that things are now well and truly happening: what was once a small group of outcasts & dreamers has now become a global network of a hundred thousand strong; The Liberators International.

10 Questions with Jae West from Latest Self-Acceptance Experiment.

What happened?
At 8pm on a Saturday the 13th of August Jae West from The Liberators International conducted a social experiment addressing the issue of beauty and self-acceptance in Times Square NYC. She placed a little stool in the middle of the square and sat down blindfolded. An electronic shaver in one hand a sharp pair of scissors in the other. A handwritten sign sat by her side with a handwritten message saying ‘Beauty isn’t dependent on our external appearance. Cut or shave off a piece of my hair to support this message’.

Why did you do what you did? Continue reading

The Full Story from Jae West’s Latest Self-Acceptance Experiment

As I walked into Time Square NYC at 8pm on a Saturday night, surrounded by conflicting messages on bright billboards of what beauty is in our society, I couldn’t help but feel nervous for what was about to unfold. Thousands of people from all different ages, backgrounds and nationalities congregated, taking selfies in the iconic scenery of The Big Apple oblivious to what I was about to do.

Daring to Follow My Inner Voice.

It’s incredible to live a life that’s terrifying. For years I’ve intentionally been living in the living room of my parents house, pushing through the shadows of fear and doubt about where it was all leading. I knew deep down I had found my soul calling, my reason to serve humanity. But I’ll tell you, it’s incredibly hard to find your way in a world that’s trying to ensure you stay on the predictable path of expectation and endless accumulation of wealth, status and material possession.

I believe it’s difficult because we live in a distracted society, one that’s actively separating us from Continue reading
