Art of Retreat

Brandee:
Art of Retreat is always just wonderful. Art of Retreat is like dreams come true and watching the people I love the most in the world elevate each other. So as far as this past Art of Retreat, it was a blast as usual. I get to stand in front of people, yell at them, shame them publicly and such and so forth.

Brandee:
But one of the most important and really profound moments I had was actually during one of the night mission games, where I had taken on the role of an ogre and I was supposed to be carried away from the village site and I didn’t want that to happen. So I struggled pretty prolifically.

Brandee:
And at some point after four or five people who didn’t really know grappling handed me off to someone who did. He had me just full lock, he had his legs around mine in hooks and then my arms were up. So honestly, there’s no way I could’ve gotten out, even I had had any energy left. Yeah, so screaming and struggling and got really exhausted and then just kind of relaxed. And he’s like, “That was good Brandee, that’s good. Take a couple breaths and then try again.”

Brandee:
And it was really cool, it was like we’re in a game and we’re playing at being enemies, obviously we’re not enemies because we’re friends and he just took a moment to coach me and help me push even further. Because I had already decided to make it into training as well as playing, but that really took it to the next level for me.

Craig:
I wondered how that person died, now I understand what actually happened. I’m obviously just kidding.

Brandee:
It was good.
