Is Where There Be Dragons TOO intense?

I've heard that WTBD gap semester programs are pretty intense both physically and emotionally. I'm not worried about the physical, but am wondering about the emotional...

The programs can be very intense but risk is managed very well and space is created to talk through any experiences that are overwhelming. There is always time for reflection and both programs I went on involved creating ceremonies to acknowledge endings or beginnings of phases of the trip, which is helpful in processing experiences.
