Date: December 18-22 Time: 10am - 3pm Ages: 7-15 Location: Griffith Park Cost: $400 We are so excited for a week of incredible experiences outdoors with your children! Each day promises a new adventure! We'll be meeting at several beautiful nature spots in Griffith Park. Here, past classes have gotten up close and personal with red-tailed hawks and coyotes, foraged for lilly pilly berries and chickweed and wild mushrooms, rope-climbed up a steep slope, learned ancient skills and made lasting friendships. This program offers children the opportunity to have fun learning the skills of our ancestors from someone who’s lived the Old Ways. It’s a beautiful way to bring balance to their technology-driven lives, understand the difference between their needs and wants, and gain the self-confidence that comes from meeting those needs directly. This is a mentoring program. We will feel the natural rhythm of the land and discover ancient wisdom as we “seek what they sought.” All classes are taught with love, compassion, non-violent communication (NVC) methods, and the inherent principles of living a life in Harmony with the Earth. Parents are welcome but not required to attend. Some of the skills we may learn during our time together: Exploring Nature immersion games Sensory awareness, expanded vision Silent walking and stalking Tracking and reading animal sign Camouflage Edible and medicinal plants Shelter design and concepts for insulation and weatherproofing Shelter location based on topography Making rope/string from plants for fishing line, nets, snares, etc. Digging sticks and rabbit sticks Primitive hygiene (making soap, toothbrush and comb) Paiute deadfall trap, quail trap and springpole snare Safety outdoors (poisonous plants, insects, reptiles, bear and mtn. lion) Useful knots Accessing intuition Navigation Traditional and modern stories
