The video has gone viral, capturing more than 326,000 views and engendering a French Canadia Huffington Post article about the phenomenon. Watch the video below:

  1. I reviewed the Advanced Course 18 months ago, this 'being with' exercise is one of the most powerful actions you can take with anyone in your life. My wife gets to lead this exercise every weekend she leads the AC and she gets to see human being get human being each and every time.

  3. Tears came to my eyes watchinh this because I remember the excercise from the advanced course. I remember the feeling of love and connectedness with other human beings. It was beautiful

  4. This “being with” exercise I did in the advanced course is so powerful! The human connections I made will last a lifetime, whether we ever see each other again or not. It made me see thar deeper connections are possible, and real if we just look into it.

  8. I assisted many times in the advanced class.
    That exercise always effected me in the most profound way. Many a times I imagined all the leaders in the United nation, congress, soldiers in mid battle, dropping their arms to their sides and then….just stare into each other's eyes and say nothing.

    Some will laugh, some will cry, others will remain stoic.
    Perhaps they won't see race, gender, or age.
    Perhaps they will see another human being looking back.
    From that clearing all things are possible.

  9. Tears came to my eyes – I was brought back to the advanced course watching this video. How powerful this is… I’m glad I watched this. It reminds me how distant I am from the people around me. Watching this today reminds me to be present with every human being again… I may not ‘be with’ everyone for one minute straight, but I can still ‘be with’ them for the moments that do exist as fleeting as they may be.

  10. You know that exercise for me was very absurd, probably because I am from Latin America and we touch and hug each other, we hold hands. But that fucking shit here in the United States is sexual harassment. I didn't feel any connection when I did it, for me was very sad that was considered a "connection". If you watch the video is totally awkward. Imagine if you hold each others hands… no way!

  11. 9 years ago I participated in the Landmark Forum and the Advance Course. During The Being With Exercise – I could hear something, like sound waves. It seemed like every person's energy was somehow perfectly synched. I haven't had that experience since, but at the time it was aural and physical, and an amazing phenomenon.
