Love Hypnosis Exchange is a group activity facilitated by Nicola Morton. It is all about spinning to get into a trance then putting a sticker on a neighbour's body. After 8 spins – stickers of different colours and radiuses are exchanged.

the audience is trying to trance out. – they spin left for 8 counts, the beep happens and they put a sticker on someone else, then spin right for 8 counts. This continues for over 10 minutes, to allow 100 stickers of each participant to be exchanged. Preparotory balancing and breathing exercises are conducted beforehand for the audience's wellbeing.
