This is the first event of many Wildearthproject will be creating at Feed Bristol , teaching Bushcraft and Primitive Skills up to advanced levels . This is a basic course introducing fire and nature connection.
All of the teachings have been passed down from indigenous tribes and cultures all over the world, with a firm grounding in ritual, nature connection and philosophy. We will show you how to look at nature from a utalitarian point of view, seeing that a tree is not just a tree , but a source of fire,shelter and food.When you commune with nature you will discover things you never dreamed of, and nature will become your best friend.
So please join us to open up your world and senses to the earth , she is waiting for all of us to re-connect with her and there are bountiful experiences to discover,for yourself and which you will carry with you forever.
This is a two day starter course
We will re awaken your energies and lifeline to the element of fire , using an ancient method called the bow drill , creating fire from frictio. Once that coal has been lit , there will be a fire ignited in your heart forever,something will have changed.Such skills connect us withe countless generations that have come before and remind us that beneath the trappings of civilisation,we,to are creatures of the earth.
In the afternoon , if we have time, there will be some philosophy and experiments around caretaking fire ritualistically and ways on how to tend and build fire .
This will be a magical day of spirit / nature connection techniques and bushcraft skills.
There will be meditations,prayer work and a vision walk,to directly connect you with yourself, the earth and her song.
In the afternoon we will learn how to make rope from natural fibres, a skill which is undeniably important for living in the wild, rope can be used for so many things amongst nets,traps,bow string,shelter,bags,fishing lines and the list goes on ! If we have time we will venture for a small wild food walk.
