The Human Gaze

The Human Gaze Project exists in cooperation with the beautiful Bozeman Public Library, though not only there.  At this library, on Sundays between 1 and 3 p.m., it is possible to check out a human gaze.  It is a simple invitation to take a seat opposite me, and then sit in silence for 90 seconds, holding the gaze of another human.  You notice and allow anything that comes.  


When you have finished, hold yourself and others gently for the rest of the day.  If you wish, you can leave a note, for me or as something to be shared along.  

Questions to take with you — 

  • "What was familiar about this?  What was new?"  

  • "What impulses showed up?  How gentle was I with anything that came up?"

  • "What assumptions was I making?  About myself?  About the other person?”

  • "How comfortable was I with not knowing something?"

  • “Did this experience use my energy or feed me with energy?” (both are normal)

  • “Is there someone who shows up for me now to reach out to or connect with?” (do it...)

  • "What support can I add to and take from the world today?”
