Founded by naturalist Chris Morasky and cultural activist Rachel Natland, Wisdom Keepers offers education, connection and adventure that envisions a new future by harmonizing nature with a modern lifestyle. We seek to inspire contemporary humans to create regenerative lifestyles and build communities which infuse modern life with the wisdom of our ancestors. We know humanity will not go backwards but we cannot keep moving forward in the same direction either. Our goal is to stir up a new way of being human which is informed by ancestral wisdoms.
Lead instructor Chris Morasky is a world-renowned naturalist specializing in Stone Age living and wildlife biology. With over 30 years of experience, Chris has committed his life to bringing humanity back into deep connection with nature. Chris has lived most of the past 30+ years in the wilderness and small communities of British Columbia, Idaho and Utah and now lives off-grid in Montana.
He has lived in Stone Age homes, homesteaded along the most remote mail route in the lower 48 states and led totally Stone Age expeditions into the wilderness. His teachers include Lakota, Shoshone, Arapaho, Crow, Blackfeet and Serri tribesmen, many wilderness skills experts and life itself. Chris’ workshops focus on awakening instincts, ancient skills and deep nature connection as doorways to understand more fully who we are, why we’re here and where we could be headed.
