19:00 – 21:00: Weekly Eye Contact
This event is about making eye contact with a stranger for an extended time. No talking, no gestures, just looking in the eyes. According to the organisers it is really a powerful experience.“During the eye contact, anything can happen. From emotions to thoughts, to wonderful connections and more. Every person has different experiences, yet the common denominator is that it allows you to connect with yourself and to others. It is an opportunity to be more present, to gain stability, raise your mood and to improve your confidence. Many also make good friends and the longer you do it, the more you get out of it.”
The event takes place at KantineKiosk Akademiestraße 2-4. Entrance costs 3 EUR. For more information, check the Facebook event.
