The Eye Gazing Brisbane event will be facilitated by The Human Connection Movement and this is the second time this event has been held by them. The first event was a huge success with many people doing away with social etiquette and just staring! The participants sat opposite each other at a riverside park and quietly held each other's gaze for at least one minute. People have generally become conditioned to avoid looking at each other and the event will be all about breaking down barriers and ensuring deeper connections with each other.
Most of what we communicate is non-verbal - this means that our body language is how we first communicate and as such, it can be seen in our movements, gestures and facial expressions. Sometimes words can be a block from being able to connect with the part of ourselves that has a message to send to others.
Nowadays we also live in a digital world, where our attention is often on other things and this will affect our ability to be focused on what is going on around us. This event will be an experience for people to be able to let go and be in a safe environment, where they can allow themselves to be vulnerable.
The idea of the event is to empower people to be open and lead with an open heart whilst at the same time nurturing "authenticity, courage and awareness."
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN At the event you will learn the following:
How to read subtle energy
How to create energetic boundaries
How to make it easy to give and receive equally
How to manage deeper trust in your being
Understanding energy and environment.
How to unravel messages and learn to trust insight that is non-verbal
How to meditate with someone else through eye contact
How to create more intimacy in your life
HOW TO EYE GAZE As this will be a strange thing to do at first, the following will give you an idea how to begin:
1. Find a partner and sit with them, if no one is free just sit down and someone will sit with you shortly
2. Breathe deeply and let go of any expectations
3. Be in the present
4. Allow whatever it is that comes up to move through you
5. Move on to the person next to you
If you feel you want to have a short chat, do so only after you have completed each gaze, as this is the best way to experience the full benefit of the exercise.
