Reconnecting adults and children with Mother Earth...
Finding that personal connection with the
Earth deepens one’s love of nature and enriches life.
Children are the future,
and without children rooted in the earth and nature, there can be no
future. An old Native American saying tells that when a decision is
made, it must be made on behalf of seven generations to come.
Having such a deep personal connection to the Earth gave the
Native American the sensitivity to know if the actions they were
taking made for positive change for their people and all life.
If it did not, no action would be taken. And that is
why we call our school Seven Generations.
By replanting our feet back in the earth, we bring hope and promise
of a brighter future.
Seven Generations Outdoor School offers
the making of tools and skills
that will fully connect you
to nature, like
primitive shelters, friction fire, baskets, cordage, bowls
and utensils, animal tracking,
throwing sticks, tanning hides, camouflage, flint
knapping, awareness, fishing spears,
and vision quest. It is these ancient
skills and tools that will create the personal connection to life
and Earth, enriching at the same time as they teach.
It is our responsibility to hand down
these great gifts, and here they are, in the form of classes. These skills and
tools are the true teachers, and we just the facilitators.
on this primitive level, brings out an understanding, a personal
relationship with the Earth that can only be felt by this type of
full emersion in nature. Planting one's feet back in the earth
in this way will make the future a brighter place for our
children and grandchildren to come.
Seven Generations Outdoor School invites you to come join us, see you soon!
