Service Description

*10am - 3pm *Ages 7-15 We are so excited to introduce your children to our favorite nature spots in Los Angeles. Each day promises a new adventure from tidepools to waterfalls to rolling meadows. We'll be meeting in locations all around Los Angeles - South Bay, Topanga, East Side and more. This is a great opportunity to get out of your nature comfort zones and get acquainted with some of the best nature spots Los Angeles has to offer! 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 make fires by rubbing sticks together, 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. 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 Safe use of knives and knife sharpening Edible and medicinal plants Fire making with flint and steel, bowdrill and handdrill Preparing char cloth Preparing tinder Types of fires for warmth, signalling, cooking and the making of tools Using fire to shape and bend wood; straightening handdrill shafts and coal burning Shelter design and concepts for insulation and weatherproofing Shelter location based on topography Water purification using primitive methods 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 Outdoors cooking methods and wild teas Accessing intuition Navigation Traditional and modern stories Wilderness ethics
