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

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.

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

 

Inside Story: The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2015

There is a peace that naturally forms between beings when we recognise ourselves in the other. War is not possible from this place. Just one minute can take you and I there. Just last month, over 100,000 people in 150 different cities tried it for themselves as a way to rebuild a sense of human connection  in public. How? No words, no judgement, just one minute of eye contact.
