I learned that when we respectfully touch others in this way, we are subconsciously and consciously sending a message that says “I see you, I value you and I care for you”. I discovered there is a tremendous healing power in creating tangible experiences like this.
We gathered in our Continue reading
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
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.

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
So What Is Actually Happening?
Over 90,000 people from more than 115 cities have nominated themselves to simultaneously sit in an iconic plaza or square to share a minute’s eye contact with strangers on the 15th of October, 2015. Each city records their experience on video and then submits their footage to The Liberators International HQ, in Perth Australia to edit their actions into a global compilation video. This global event calls upon citizens of planet Earth to volunteer and decide to be a part of the reason the world changed.
Here’s the example Continue reading
“That day I felt two emotions – both shaking with fear and unconditional love. Love from the crowd, love from the people. “Are you cold?” people were asking me. “No, I’m just scared” said Amandine whilst blindfolded in public. Continue reading
