The self reliance and deep nature connection that comes from knowing you can craft a comfortable and enjoyable experience in any landscape. Make an effective shelter from only the debris you find. Read the landscape in order to find and process drinking water. From the wood you gather and shape, coax fire for your light, your tool making, warmth, water purification, and to cook the endless stream of nutrient rich foods you gathered yourself. These are skills and experiences you will enjoy for the rest of your life. It is something that no one can take away from you. Re-energize yourself with a more a hands on approach to your deep connection to the landscape through ancestral skills in field craft.  Learn how primitive skills, bushcraft, even wilderness survival, can become a doorway to fulfillment and deep nature connection. Your wilderness skills will carry over into your daily life, increasing balance, health, diversity, and a sense of connection that will move you.  We share the wisdom of our collective ancestry in nurturing and supportive environment with a community of skills practitioners.  All levels of experience are welcome.  We will meet you where you are and help you develop your edge.

This August’s Wilderness Skills is a 5 Day experience held when the mosquitoes have left us and the weather is typically dry and pleasant.  It is a time when the bounty of the natural world is coming on line for the harvest.  We invite you to experience what it takes to fully integrate into the natural world as a complete participant, not as a tourist, but as native to your own back yard.

During our 5 Day courses we start at 9am break for a 90 minute lunch and dinner and go until around 8pm sharing skills.
