Experiment: Meeting the Stranger

Set your timer for five minutes.
Sit or stand in front of a mirror.
Relax your face and establish contact with yourself.
Be with yourself the way you would with a partner in Contact Tag.
Let go of any judgements and be heart to heart with the stranger in the mirror.
Gaze into your eyes and face with a soft focus, placing your subtle attention on the Being in front of you.
We are accustomed to placing ourselves under the magnifying glass of critical attention. It’s a habit, so take care not to slip into the usual inner dialogues.
The purpose of this experiment is to look at the stranger, (the stranger that appears to be "you") without trying to identify or categorize him/her.
The aim is to be fully present with this stranger.
