The gateway to this is simple attention: a little space between our mental and physical worlds; our intentions and consequences. A redemptive stillness to reflect.
With over 30 years of trail and safari guiding experience in several African countries, Alan McSmith works as a wilderness guide & facilitator, tracker, conservationist, and TEDx speaker.

Encounters with wild animals may be unpredictable. And in order to ensure a dignified and safe outcome for all concerned, it is essential that the guide remains calm and perceptive.
It’s estimated that, in all formats, the video has over 25 million views. The message is about a transformative take of elephant and wilderness awareness. It is time to focus on these animals through a different lens, a lens that also incorporates our own wholeness and sacred attitudes. The encounter was after all about the elephant, not Alan.
