Dialogue in the Dark

Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the world. - Rumi

Ingredients

Directions

Using the idea of Dialogue in the Dark, participants experience a blindfolded dialogue of the heart.

When a person is blindfolded, it can foster a deeper sense of empathy, self awareness and inner reflection. Dialogue and communication flows in a different way without body language to distract you, and allows trust and openness to emerge.

All participants will be blindfolded, and will sit in a circle. There will be one facilitator without a blindfold who is responsible for keeping time and asking the questions.

After asking the question, the facilitator leaves the space for participants to answer and reflect out loud to the group on the questions asked.

As an optional addition, low relaxing background music can be played if it is not a distraction to the group.
