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
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. Modern-day game changers, who’s revolutionary new social experiments are continuing to gain momentum, expand their horizons and win powerful new allies. Continue reading
There’s nothing like a Bob Marley song to brighten up your day, but would you be game enough to sing it with total strangers on public transport? Well, commuters around the world did just that on a Monday morning commute when they took part in the world’s biggest sing-along – and the vision is set to become a viral hit.
Marley’s hit song ‘Three Little Birds’ took centre stage on buses, trains, and boats in 18 countries and 25 cities around the world. Hundreds of unsuspecting passengers were handed lyrics and encouraged to take part in the sing-along. So what happened next? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Continue reading
With energy flowing and spirits running high, The Liberators arrived at Flow Freedom Festival ready to gift the event with acts of presence, connection and freedom. Excited campers soon followed, eager to explore the land and activities available over the weekend as a means of exploring their own relationship to themselves. Once settled and grounded the community gathered to officially open the festival and set the space for what was going to be a transformational weekend on both an individual and collective level. Stu and Mandy, the founders and managing coordinators of The Flow Festival, openly welcomed everyone to the space, acknowledging them as not only paying ticket holders but brothers and sisters of an ever growing family and tribe. As equals who’s voice and presence was deeply seen, heard and felt. That sense of equality and acceptance flowed through into all of the workshops and activities available, ranging from yoga, to public talks, music, meditation and dance and provided the perfect platform for The Liberators to host their live interactive DJ set on Saturday night.
We’d never attempted something of this size before, the social experiment was to see if we could inspire hundreds of strangers to dance like nobody was watching in public. We prepared a giant moving sound system as seen in this picture and rolled into the centre of town with turbo charged butterflies in our stomachs.
It was Friday night, shops were open late, work had just finished, high heels and work shoes clicked across the pavement as thousands of people hustled through the centre of town. We’d arranged Continue reading
A few months ago I got an unexpected email from a uni student Anna Bendz who asked if she could interview me for her media project. Little did I know she’d put so many of her own hours into creating a short documentary like this. Her team have crafted this beautiful piece of work to uncover a little more about my personal journey and how I ended up creating The Liberators International. I am honoured to have worked with such a professional group of people on my life journey. I deeply honour all the people who have helped me on this pathway through Liberation & Good Vibrations.
This is by far the most inspiring video we’ve ever been involved in and it’s been made possible thanks to YOU and the 100,000 other participants! We look forward to featuring your story with the people at TEDx Perth tomorrow night.
Feel free to share this video with your friends, family and people to spread this beautiful message with the world.
This video shows how we were able to start a movement within a festival. It started with 15 fun and loving liberators and finished with close to 100 people dancing and screaming for joy…
In this video, The Liberators & I attempt to start a pop-up party on a Perth Train again and the public response is priceless!!!
On the eve before Valentines day at around 10pm, The Liberators and I started a pop-up dance party on a public train. We had an uplifting mix of music playing from a portable sound system and within a minute we had the entire carriage dancing. We then moved the train party up to the other carriages of the train to meet, greet and celebrate with the other members of the public.
Together we’re allowing people to see they’re already free and surrounded in love. Through our playful, loving expressions of freedom we’re dropping the need to feel afraid of the unknown. Together we’re providing experiential proof that when we lead with love, a healthier, more accepting social paradigm organically forms itself. Here is the mix of music we used and a few photos from the experience. Video coming soon.
