This course represents a unique opportunity to deepen ones connection to nature on this beautiful tropical island. We will be engaging in hands-on practices that have informed and trained trackers, scouts, hunters, gatherers and healers for countless generations in cultures that draw their sustenance directly from the land. These practices awaken our bodies, hearts and minds to the wisdom and guidance of the plants, birds, animals and elemental and cosmic influences that surround us every day. The somatically anchored awareness and practical sensitivity to the land we will develop will help us to lead the way toward a modern culture of earth-centered care-taking. Hawaiian elder and artist Al Lagunero calls this the "New Old Way."
Earth Medicine Institute is fortunate to have world-class instructors for this certification including tracker and nature skills teacher Alan Brisley, renowned wild foods expert Sunny Savage, astronomer and scientist Harriet Witt and Hawaiian plant specialist David Bruce Leonard.
We are very excited to be making this kind of experience available locally and affordably.
In our 5 weekend program we will cover: archery, shelter building, fire starting, navigating by the sun and stars, wild edibles, herbal first aid, bird language, wild life tracking, rope making & Nature connection. Storytelling around a campfire will end each evening.

We will begin our studies by learning to provide for our primary physical needs utilizing only natures bounty: Warmth, clean water, safety, health, and food. As the weeks progress and our skills improve, we will evolve our studies into more spiritual & psychological needs: Our connection to the planet and heavens, our connection to each other and community, and our connection to this profound matrix of life.
