English / عربي⟪hypnosis⟫
Pair up. Decide who is player A and who is player B? Player A holds their hand about 30 cm away from the face of player B. Player B imagines being hypnotised by the palm. You must follow the hypnotising palm anywhere it goes while keeping the same distance from the palm. Player A starts a series of movements.
Find new ways to challenge your partner. Experiment with speed and direction.
After a set time. Switch roles. Let player B lead.
Reflect together on how it felt to do this activity? Did you prefer being led or being the leader? Why? How does this speak to your larger inquiry?
