“I have made it my mission to help people understand the importance of the environment and how it affects their lives. It’s about reconnecting with the Earth.”
Can knowing how to build a fire or find your way in the wild enrich your life? Celebrated survival expert Les Stroud, creator and star of theSurvivorman documentary television series, says yes.
This weekend, using nature as your guide, you learn practical wilderness skills as a metaphor for life and as a way of staying connected to yourself and the planet. Discover how to get down to basics, practice wilderness awareness tools to develop your sixth sense, and learn techniques for calming the body when lost. Stroud shows you how these essential practices can help ground you in your daily experiences, and deepen your spiritual connection to the earth.
Through gentle outdoor adventuring, storytelling, music, self-reflection, land skills training, and the valuable earth-wisdom lessons Stroud has gathered from around the world, you learn the natural way to bring more clarity, peace, nature, and spirituality into your life.
