36 Questions That Lead to Love

Thursday, November 7, 2019 | 6-7.30PM
Humainologie Gallery + Store, 1514 – 7 Street SW | Calgary, Canada

Can intimacy between two strangers be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions? In Mandy Len Catron’s Modern Love essay, “To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This,” she explains how a series of  36 questions followed by four minutes of eye contact can help us connect with anyone in a deep way. We will be adapting the exercise enabling you to connect with two different people over the course of the evening through a mutual question-answer conversation followed by a period of silent eye contact.

What's Your story?

Everyday, all the time, we are all playing key roles in our corners of the world. A moment of eye contact, a smile, an extra question like "so how are you?", a pause to hold the door open, a few words to validate how someone is feeling...there are things we can do all the time to remind each other we belong, we are valued, we are part of this great and diverse human family. Tell us about something small or big that you did, or that happened to you, where the result was a sense of connection, belonging, or the recognition of our shared humanity.
