Participants should collaborate, share ideas, and help each other as they figure out how to move. -Encourage participants to move carefully, stepping over or under others, twisting, and turning to create more space. -Advise the group to work methodically and carefully. If they get stuck, they should rethink their positions and try a new approach. -When the knot is untangled, have everyone stand in a circle without letting go of hands and applaud the accomplishment.
