JOIN US as we gather at 6,000 feet among the ancient sequoias to learn the Universal Skills that every culture of humanity has practiced. This program offers children the opportunity to have fun learning our ancestors' skills from someone who’s lived the Old Ways. This is a beautiful way for the whole family to check out of your technology-driven lives and take a break in the beauty of the wilderness. Your children will learn to understand the difference between their needs and wants and gain self-confidence from meeting those needs directly.
We will spend 7 days deep in the beautiful sequoia forest, where 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.
This is a mentoring program. It is an incredibly rare opportunity to live with Chris for a full week in his natural habitat!

Lead instructor Chris Morasky is a world-renowned naturalist specializing in Stone Age living and wildlife biology.

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 understanding more fully who we are, why we’re here, and where we could be headed.
