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

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

Bob Marley Unites Humanity in the World’s Biggest Sing-along (Video)

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

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.

Exciting Global Flashmob Sing-a-long Aims to Unify the Planet.

Have you ever wondered what might happen if you handed out lyrics to a song everyone loves, then invited the public to sing it together with you on a Monday morning train, bus or boat? Can you imagine if the same song was sung in over 100 cities at the same time and was then compiled into a global video that weaved everyones voices into singing the same song together as one?

Somewhere Over the Rainbow Photos (4 of 4)

Well on Monday, the 23rd of May 2016 the entire world is set to find out. The World’s Biggest Sing For Good has officially launched over the weekend and is a global flashmob event designed to create harmony on Earth by connecting people in cities all over with a spontaneous good morning sing-a-long.

The last time The Liberators International hosted a global event like this it attracted over 100,000 participants to share a minutes eye contact with strangers in public spaces all over the world. This time, Continue reading

TEDx Talk That Changed My Life

I took a number of risks in presenting this speech at TEDx Perth to over 1500 of Perth’s most influential people at the red carpeted Perth Concert Hall. Moments before jumping on stage I was supposed to be getting ready, rehearsing my speech but instead I was rallying troops backstage to surprise the entire audience flashmob style with a last minute concept I was sure was going to transform the speech into something worth talking about (Be sure to watch till the end if you want to find out what happens for a first time on TED!).

The speech itself is only 15 minutes long and takes a concise look at 3 of my most influential pieces of work and how they’ve gone on to effecting the world & myself personally. I dive into the idea of how my experiment trusting others in public has exploded into a global movement for peace, how dancing with others on a train changed my life forever & the way in which sharing eye contact in public allows for humans to participate in rebuilding our sense of peace on earth.

I am honoured to be running The Liberators International & look forward to sharing more great moments by cultivating global sense of community with you shortly.

Kind regards,

Peter Sharp

 

Video Documentary on The Liberators International

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.
