Earth Living begins with core routines of survival, including shelter, water, fire, and food from the landscape. It evolves into an approach to thriving in the wilderness through developing skills that create mutually beneficial relationships and awareness of cues in the landscape to find important resources and information. Whether you feel the calling to have a deeper connection with nature, or you are a seasoned backpacker, camper, or sportsman, this course will bring you to the edge of your abilities and provide you with new tools to bring your outdoor experiences to the next level.
With over 18 hours of instruction and hands on application during the weekend, this course is an experiential introduction to the skills needed to live outdoors with little or no gear for brief to extended periods of time. The content is rigorous as well as thorough. You will learn through demonstration and direct application important benchmarks toward success in developing a proactive mental attitude, effective shelter building approaches, effective and sustainable fire making strategies, and the location, harvesting, effective treatment, and storage of water off the landscape.
