<b>Context</b><br>
We want to spend a few minutes getting to know each other is perhaps a new way, a more interesting way.
<br><br>

<b>Procedures</b><br>
1. Take a few minutes think about the people you first remember. <i>Give people a few minutes to think about these people.</i><br>
2. Now write down the answers to two questions.<br>
- a. Who are the first five people you were curious about?<br>
- b. Why were you curious about them?<br>
3. Would someone share someone they were curious about and why? <i>Try to get out several answers.</i><br>
4. What were your feelings (emotions) you experienced while listing these people?<br>
5. What did you learn from these people?<br>
6. How did they affect your life?
<br><br>
<b>Conclusion</b><br>
<i>Move on to the next part of the session.</i>
<br><br>
<b>Notes</b><br>
This can be a very poserful and sometimes scary session.
