Ancestral Ways: Reclaiming Our Past

If you’ve ever felt drawn to a waterfall, mountain range, serene lake, or boundless prairie,  you’ve experienced  “Biophilia”.  A reflexive response to our evolutionary relationship to nature.  Yes, we are part of nature!  Though modern civilization, over the last 5 thousand years, has moved us further and further apart. Still we find ourselves drawn to connect with the natural world.

Each  weekend of this 6 month course will bring you back into that  relationship. As we gather our food, build our shelters, craft our clothes and containers and re-learn to  speak the language of nature, we will experience the kind of connectedness or “biophilia” that our ancestors new for 100,000 ’s of years!
