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
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
The 2nd annual Eye Contact Experiment is exploding with people from all over the world rushing in to host and participate in what’s shaping up to be the biggest year yet! Last year over 100,000 people from more than 151 different cities participated in sharing eye contact with strangers in public spaces to re-build a sense of human connection right around the globe. “This year we’ve already had over Continue reading
Bob Marley told us “every little thing gonna be alright” almost 40 years ago, and now we’re going to experience it again – global sing-a-long style. Marley’s hit song ‘Three Little Birds’ will take centre stage to create a sense of unity on public transport all around the globe on May 23 during the World’s Biggest Sing-a-Long. The Liberators International made headlines last year when they launched the world’s biggest eye contact experiment, with more than 100,000 participants from 161 cities taking part in the global event.

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?
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
Lot’s of love, laugher and joy was shared to create this uplifting video of peace. It may seem like a few people having fun but i’d like you to consider what would happen if this was done between two opposing sides of misunderstanding. If they could share this moment together then sit down for a shared community picnic afterwards what would arise? How would they feel about their differences?
On the UN international day of peace I realised one very important thing. We do not need to wait until an international day to represent peace in our everyday existence. This led me to explore how I might be able to express the gesture of peace in my everyday behaviour so here’s a simple list of 7 ideas that come to mind.
As we build towards the World Peace Picnic being held in Kings Park this Sunday the 21st of September, a good friend Michelle and I thought it would be fun to create an experiment to see if random members of the public would be open to receiving acts of peace for world peace day. This is what happened.
What if all religions united and stepped forward to simultaneously show their love for the world, the people and their god in the highest form. Continue reading
