A first intervention was set up in Banff in 2010. During a group hypnosis - simultaneously broadcasted on local radio – the possible allegories of the surrounding woodland and it's inhabitant was brought to attention as a group of participant, under trance, was guided to an encounter with a wild animal. The participants where lying together in a circle, as the hypnosis opened up for several undertakings or interactions between the person and the imagined animal. A simultaneous broadcast of the hypnosis on local radio made it possible to extend the experiment to participants off site. The participants where asked to share parts of their experience in a questionnaire.
