Native Skills 1

The next class is, 25-27 July. 

Prerequisite: None

Duration: 3 days 

Cost: £200

This class teaches the fundamentals of survival; shelter, water, fire and food. It is designed to be the first track towards becoming a Native. Not only will this class teach the physical skills of survival but will introduce too, the worlds of Awareness. The session will be a mixture of lectures and hands on skills. It is also seen as an introduction to the principles and teaching of Native Awareness and is the prerequisite to most of the other courses. Very popular with the instructors due to the pleasure in seeing people rediscover these ancient skills for the first time, such as making fire without modern means or discovering the uses of common plants, that are so readily available. We encourage full participation with all activities.
