Apprentice of the Wild - Topanga
- 65 US dollars$65
Time: 10am-2pm Location: Topanga Age: 7+ Cost: $65 Instructor: Chris Morasky Parents are welcome to join us but not required. During week one of our 4 class Topanga series, we'll explore beautiful meadows full of wildflowers, where we'll discover edible and medicinal plants. Narrow trails wind through a forest containing three species of oak trees, California lilacs, toyon berry shrubs, and so much more. When conditions are just right, patches of chanterelle mushrooms grow in abundance. This is a magical place. There's a good chance that elves live here, too! This is a mentoring program. We will track coyotes and deer, learn edible and medicinal plants, move silently, 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. Some of the experiences your child may have during this series include: Exploring Nature immersion games Sensory awareness, expanded vision Silent walking and stalking Tracking and reading animal sign Camouflage Safe use of knives and knife sharpening 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 Safety outdoors (poisonous plants, insects, reptiles, bear and mtn. lion) Useful knots Outdoors cooking methods and wild teas Accessing intuition Navigation Traditional and modern stories Wilderness ethics
