Sandra invites the audience, at the conclusion of her presentation, to focus on her eyes and remain so. There is a palpable silence in the room. We remain fixed.  This demonstration of  how to connect deeply with another resonates with the belief that Sandra holds, “magic happens simply through holding space for each other and allowing ourselves to connect deeply”.
