What is this "treposa" really called?

"Dan, one of my patients, attended a retreat where he engaged in treposa
, a meditation procedure in which two people hold hands for several minutes, lock gazes, meditate deeply upon one another, and then repeat the process with new partners." The author of this passage seems to have gotten the name of this meditation practice wrong. Does it actually exist at all?

The passage is from Irvin Yalom's Love's Executioner. I immediately googled the term and found that his reference to it was the only one on the internet. Does anyone know what it's actually called? And if you want bonus points, what kind of groups do this sort of meditation?
