The second Track Your Life retreat of the season saw two major highlights including amazing lion tracking as well as the chance to track a bull elephant which was eventually encountered in a shady Tamboti grove.
We sat still in the perfect down wind position as the bull walked past us close enough to hear the sound of his feet compressing the earth. something so rare and magical is hard to put into words, the beauty of a moment like that is so rare in modern life and it echoed through all of us for a long time after the encounter.
There is nothing like the African wilderness to take us deep into our own being. Around the fire we told stories as each person in the ground began to like all trackers pay attention to the specific track of aliveness in their own life. We were mindful of where we were. We were paying attention. We were still enough to track our lives.
