We’ve been given a great gift that we would like to share with you. It’s made a real difference in our lives and maybe it can with you too.
Step 1: Get a group of people together around a table. 8 to 10 is a good number. You can be friends or even family - it’s a great way to reconnect and refresh your relationships whenever you need it. It’s also cool if there are people there who don’t know each other, or would never normally hang out together.
Step 2: Each person takes a piece of paper and writes down their name and something they would like to GIVE on it - anything at all! Big, small, concrete, abstract - even a performance gift!
Step 3: On a second piece of paper, write down your name and something you would like to RECEIVE. Use your imagination - what do you really need? Ask from the heart.
Step 4: Put all the pieces of paper in a bowl.
Step 5: Draw a piece of paper from the bowl and read it out. Agatha has some tips on where to go in Berlin. Anyone interested? Jared needs more time. Who can help him?
Step 6: Take your time to listen to one another!
Step 7: Keep going until you have worked with every piece of paper. Remember, not every wish has to be fulfilled.
This is about universal acceptance, expressing what you need and what you have to give, and finally cutting through the burocracy of life and helping each other out in the most direct way possible. You can also have a really good time.
