Four Day Core Survival Skills Intensive
Fri-Mon, May 25-28, 2018

Join us on an adventure across time to learn how to live easily, freely and in harmony with the land. Ancient wisdom fills 4 incredible days while you learn not just how to survive, but thrive with what you can gather!  This is not a fear-based course or a test of your toughness. Our journey covers the skills, knowledge and best approaches to enable you to walk anywhere confident in meeting your needs and supporting your loved ones. We’ll start with all of the gear that you want to bring and I’ll show you how to replace it with the tools and skills of the wild lands.

I’m sure that you already know how to hike, so we will only hike when we need new resources. I prefer to focus on skills… living the life. Plan on an experience that you’ll never forget!

Here are just some of the topics you’ll learn about:
Sensory awareness, expanded vision
Silent walking and stalking
Tracking and reading animal sign
Camouflage
Safe use of knives
Edible and medicinal plants
Basketry
Stone tools
Fire making with bowdrill and handdrill
