After a run around to warm up we headed to the woods for a truly trusting challenge: together both partners came up with an audible code that translated to directions, one of the pair chose a tree at least 50m away and was directed towards it by their partner, blindfolded. We heard all manners of codes from simple clapping, to donkey sounds and some form of mystery sounds; very impressive to see that all the group made their way to the trees with no tree face-plants!
Once in the woods, we got the fire roaring straight away and set an intention of well being for an endangered animal. This led to a rich and heartfelt discussion around an apparent rhino ranch in which the owner is appealing to the South African government to sell his Rhino’s horns to stop poaching on his land, and to feed the demand of East-Asia with his legally obtained rhino horn. If interested, there’s an article online on the Telegraph about it:
Part of the group continued to build the tree house, while a partnership formed to make a ladder up to the tree house platform or worked on crafts around the fire.
