LEARN EDUCATE EVOLVE
Wild Earth Project has a huge interest in home-ed kids , as over some years we can work with them for many months of the year and so advance them to a advanced level in nature connection . This is where the real work and progress can be seen and done , and has been tried and tested in other Bushcraft schools with powerful results, culminating in the kids having real purpose and a sense of who they are and there place on this planet . Whatever the children carry on to do in society , they will forever take with them these life affirming skills in their hearts.
These events will support the kids , internally , also generating vitality at a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. They will be more happy , confident , empathic and grateful for life generally !
Also its a school that is deeply woven with indigenous wisdom and spirit work. We put a great emphasis on the spirit skills that are also completely aligned with the physical skills, you cannot have one without the other we believe, and thats how these teachings have been passed down to us , from an Apache elder /shaman, who also couldn't emphasis this enough .
We aim to give you and the children a teaching system that will get them and you to think for yourselves,we will be there as guides to show you the way , but in the end its up to them to work out the mysteries of the natural world
We are a paleolithic school looking to enhance people's lives through working with the earth around us , slowly building up an encyclopedia of knowledge about the natural world around us , enlarging our confidence , and zest for life , inspiring us to live and dream more . So we will start them off with the basics of survival skills , everything is made from scratch at our school , using knives, draw knives , axes , spoke shaves and flint tools .
We will slowly cover all the subjects of thriving in the wild , including fire , water , foraging , herbalism , archery , bows , arrows , baskets , shelter , trapping , tracking, stalking , stealth movement , camouflage, bird language amongst many other sub topics .
I will get in specialised teachers sometimes with specific knowledge on other topics like anthropology , history, and science , broadening the scope of what we can teach them .
As they grow up with the school , into teen years , we can offer them assistant jobs with Wildearth so it can become a career choice if they wish to go that way . With the teens also we will start to introduce rites of passage , particularly challenging weekends , with rituals /ceremonies involving the all the family to be there and co -create , the coming of age.
We are looking for ages of 6-18 , we would split these age groups if there is enough children , giving the teenagers way more challenging skills to work on , gaining momentum in each subject and possibly culminating in working for us . So eventually some of the kids can assist us on the courses , and this is very important to show the other kids that are studying, giving them role models and inspriration to carry on with these skills as that there is a career at the end , if they wish to do so .
I want to focus on meeting every 2 weeks approx . or so from spring to autumn every year , i am away next spring but can start in the beginning of the summer .
Generally it will be around 12-18 pounds a day depending on the class schedule and duration of the events .
