First association with Khidr is beyond any doubt a search for a new knowledge and experience. The morale of the whole story, our incapability and failure to see beyond our own perceptions, shows how easily and miserably are we misled by our conclusions and judgments. The fish that slips and gets away from Moses on his quest of finding Khidr is a metaphor for our unquenchable thirst for knowledge and desire to explore. Let us slip together from conventional pattern of society we live in. Learn about our “Trip Trash or Treasure” through adventure workshops on the field, recognize the treasure in something most people consider garbage (rock as an energy emitter, leaf that conceals the secrets of photosynthesis).
