The purpose of the reflection activities is to help the trekkers discover and understand metaphors in the human-animal-wilderness interactions. This process helps the trekker discuss her issues and find her own resolutions.
Three processing/therapy groups are held each day, centered on meals. Participants are
also asked to keep a journal of their journey, to remind them of their experience. If time permits, a solo experience, in which participants spend time by themselves for three or four hours, is often carried out during the journey. Photographs are taken during the trip, and a few weeks after the end of the trip, each person receives personal copies. On the last day of the journey, the participants write a letter to themselves, which is mailed to them a month after the journey.
