Empowering Ancient Ways Update:
After many requests we have gone ahead and created a three session format for one of our favorite programs – Empowering Ancient Ways – instead of a week long intensive we have added an extra day to the already full schedule and split it up into three sessions over two seasons to make it more manageable to digest. Of course along with another day we have added more content of the program and streamlined how we are going to deliver the training experience throughout the Spring and Summer seasons.
The core skills of this course have been brought together after much preparation and introspection as to how to incorporate the most well-rounded and universal wilderness wisdom and teachings into one week-long experience. This course provides the ingredients to enrich the life of anyone who lives on planet Earth, from the most seasoned wilderness guides to wildlife biologists, busy professionals who yearn for the sanctity of the wild, or anybody interested in being thoroughly introduced to wilderness living skills.

Shelter, Water, Fire, Food
