Dates are January 26th, February 9th, March 9th, April 6th, 20th, May 4th, 18th, June 1st, 15th 9 classes altogether Class description: In this class your child will learn the sacred order of survival: Shelter, water, fire, food, and will make deep contact with the Earth through games, stories and hands-on projects. Shelter - We will learn how to make various shelter styles as well as shelter fundamentals such as location, hazards and different building materials to use. Water - We will explore methods of finding and purifying water. Water is the life blood of Mother Earth. Our bodies are between 50~75% water depending on many different factors. It's the same water that circulates between us and the trees and the plants and the rain. We are all connected through water. Fire - We use fire everyday to cook and heat our homes, but most of us are very disconnected and unfamiliar with how fire acts and responds. It's a primal tool and companion that all of our ancestors knew how to make using friction. Fire can spark joy and empower a person. You learn a lot about yourself by making fire with friction. Food - Tracking, baskets, weapons, traps, edible, medicinal and utilitarian plants; the list for what nature can teach us about food is endless. These classes will invite you to use all of your senses to connect with nature and each other.
