Eye Gazing Jam – “Be Unfuckwithably YOU” – Lost Paradise

Eye Gazing Jam – “Be Unfuckwithably YOU”


Workshop Description:

Be unfu#kwithably YOU as you take a deep dive into human connection with Eye Gazing. Dan Kurlapski will explain the physiological, mental and emotional interplay that arises as you gaze into the eyes of a stranger. First time and sound weird? We have you covered. A series of 3 to 5 minute gazing sessions will take you on a journey of unique connections between the self and another. Explore and play with whatever comes up – heat, tension, thought, emotion…the urge to kack yourself laughing – and become at ease with it all. In doing so you remain open in heart, body and mind – a state of love and play. You’ll leave being ready to dial in, connect and co-create magical experiences with epic humans.


Dan is a Mindset and Mental Resiliency Coach whilst also teaching meditation. He believes in regularly triggering your brain’s leap muscle to break routine, so he challenged himself to 52 new experiences in 52 weeks. We’re not sure whether he found himself or lost himself but he hasn’t stopped leaping since. You’ll find him wandering the planet climbing mountains, exploring the Amazon or embarking on extensive silent meditation retreats.



  • “I had such an incredible time at Lost Paradise – it was a wonderfully unique experience. Thanks again for the opportunity to attend Lost Paradise – it was one of the best festivals I’ve attended in Australia and a fabulous start to the year.”

    Sophie Dellagiacoma – Australian Traveller Magazine

  • “I had such a good time at Lost Paradise! It’s one of the coolest festivals I’ve been to. I loved playing the Lost Disco stage, the atmosphere was wicked, the decoration was class and the lit up signs the crowd brought with them, added to it too.

    After my set I went on the dancefloor with a few of my mates and saw the new year in listening to Jackmaster & Jasper James, was a memorable new year!”

    – Patrick Topping
  • “Lost Paradise was a totally unique festival, nothing like it in Australia. Thank you to everyone who made it such a beautiful place.”

  • “The thing that really makes this festival shine is without a doubt the sheer variety of acts in that world class lineup. Dense, ambitious, and not afraid to throw in a few curve balls, Lost Paradise is much more than your average doof, but a playground for all, no matter what your age or musical alignment.”

  • “After Boomtown in England this is definitely the second festival with the craziest stuff”

    – M.I.A.
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”

  • “My favourite view from stage in the world. Doof sticks and the Australian bush, insane energy.”
    – Willaris. K
  • “Re-awaken your sense of wanderlust and adventure with the festival’s secret hideaways, glittering late night discos, and inspirational art and performance”

    No1 NYE 2017/8 Event in the World – Buzzfeed
  • As 2018 became 2019, I found myself feeling sorry for all my Sydney pals couped up in clubs and bad house parties. But also, not really. When you’ve got a festival like Lost Paradise waiting for you just down the road, why on earth would you spend your New Year’s anywhere else?”

    – Hhhappy – Bill Robinson
  • “A picturesque setting in Glenworth Valley forest, a flowing river that hugged the venue and camping grounds, and one of the most characterfully constructed settings of any festival this side of the Pacific, Lost Paradise curates its New Year celebrations in the same way it curates its lineup: with weird and wonderful indulgence.”
