24. February 2014. At 13.00 we leave Vienna in the direction of northern Lower Austria. The aim of our trip on this sunny sunny spring day is the Wolfsforschungszentrum Ernstbrunn. There an afternoon awaits us among wolves. A direct contact, in the middle of the enclosure.

The wolves are waiting ...

Overview

With every kilometer, my positive excitement and tension rise. I wonder how it will happen? What kind of feeling will it be to enter the enclosure? How will I react to the wolves or - more importantly - these to me?

In the research center Prof. Dr. Kurt Kotrschal, the head of the research center, and Patricia Staniek, the developer and coach of the Wolf Experience. We are a group of ten people.

Create eye level to the wolves

Overview

The visit starts in the center's seminar room with information about the behavior of the wolves and a few safety instructions. We should avoid hectic movements, move us confidently. If we want to build real contact, standing-up does nothing.

We have to make an eye out by hitting the ground and touching the floor. After a last security check - sticking out long hair, everything plush or fur is removed from the clothes, removing the jewelry - we march with the experienced staff of the research center around Prof. Kotrschal and Patricia Staniek go in the direction of the enclosure. The wolves are waiting.

First direct contacts

Overview

As we approach the fenced large area, immediately trot three wolves. They come close to the fence and watch us. Very intense looks are that, from beautiful yellow-brown to green-speckled eyes. Now I have a slightly queasy feeling, but the joy of being allowed to make a borderline experience here outweighs it.

In single file we enter the enclosure and set up - as instructed - in a semicircle. Now the wolves get used to us, and we to the wolves. The first "brave" of the group are already squatting. I follow this example.

Just expect nothing

Overview

Suddenly I am overcome. I do not expect anything, am quite at the moment, enjoy the sun and close my eyes for a moment. Suddenly I feel a touch on my outstretched hand, a wet snout has dived up and sniffed at my fingers.

I open my eyes and in front of me stands Nanuk - the lead wolf of the pack. He looks into my eyes, I into his. What an incredible moment. Instinctively, I have done what is right in dealing with the shy beings, the wolves are now times. Do not expect anything, do not put dominance in the days, do not want to attract them. Do not want anything. Let go and be at the moment. Then they approach each other.

The wolf as mirror of our personality

Overview

What a lesson! And that's what this wolf experience is all about. We may learn through the wolves that we do not determine what happens. Wolves caress and spend a beautiful afternoon is not the real goal of this experience.

Rather, it is about getting to know our own behavior in society and business. The wolves, with their shyness and sensitivity are here a perfect mirror.

Stop wanting!

Overview

Whoever tries - I want, I want - to try to get the wolf contact, probably will not get one. Regardless of whether managers or well-known politicians, PR consultants or journalists, in Wolfsgehege, we are all one. The wolves decide whether they want to come near us or not.

My personal hourly hour this afternoon: As a wolf approaches me and puts his front paw on my left outstretched hand. I am not afraid, just great joy about this trust proof. Rarely have I felt so one with nature and above all with myself as in this moment.
