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. 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

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’.

WATCH: 400 Strangers Spontaneously Break Into Dance!

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

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.

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.
