Helene Ottens-Bergmann - Am Ufer

The group is devided into two circles, or in a chain so that always two people look at each other.
One side begins to enumerate the other positive attributes, eg, “What I like about you is that you’re always so … friendly, able to make your point, etc.”
The other person replies: “I am your mirror.”
At the end of each round one side moves one person down and then switch sides, so that everyone can be mirror and mirrored to everybody else.

Background & Impact:
The mirror exercise makes us aware that every other person is representing an aspect of ourselves. We only see that in others that we carry in ourselves – positively or negatively. This exercise has a very strong effect, spontaneous awakening is possible.
