A moment of presence
a public event for a small dose of presence
It uses presence as it’s foundation to create a public space for human encounters that focus on the things that really matter to us.
Human contact is something we often lack in public spaces. In our culture, we are often in a hurry, we tend to be a bit careful or afraid of people we don't know and presence is often something we don't really know what "looks like" in practice.
The workshop creates a simple framework for human encounters. It is about presence in eye contact, in listening and having dialogue around themes that can be important for a happy and meaningful life.
Research shows that presence and trust between people are important ingredients for good health and happiness. Increased trust creates a greater sense of safety between people - and safe people are more likely to find solutions rather than going into defence or conflict.
In this way, a small dose of presence can ignite a small spark that can in turn spread further.
Together, let's create a more compassionate world where we see each other's potential.
Bring chairs or other things to sit on. The facilitators, preferably at least 2-3, sit on the chairs with another empty chair opposite facing each other. When someone wants to have a moment of presence or dialogue they sit down on the empty chair and you face each other.
A moment of dialogue based on a question,
"what am I really passionate about?"
or "what do I dream of?"
We arrange these events frequently in Sweden, but if you want the framework and guide how to set it up yourself, don't hesitate to contacts us! We have the signs in both Swedish and English and we can send it for people to print it themselves. The goal of this project is to have it in every city in the world, to bring the world a bit closer together.
