Skyfaring was a Gatalentan calisthentics exercise involving the use of scarves to climb wooden scaffolding and suspend themselves in midair. Traditionally, Gatalentans started learning skyfaring as very young children. Skyfaring acted as a meditative and spiritual process for the Gatalentans, with advanced practioners of skyfaring able to meditate in place, "unmoored to the ground," and so enhance their spiritual well-being and that of those around them.
