Wisdom Keepers workshops and classes at Ffynnon

Have you ever wondered what life was like before we became modern? 

Have you been wondering what you might do to live more naturally in this world of fast food, media hypnotism, and elite competition? 

Have you thought that the only way to be  living more naturally requires you to move out of the city and into some far away corner of the wilderness?

    Carve a Wooden Spoon with Chris Morasky

    Our hunter-gatherer ancestors didn’t own much, but every item had a beautiful, rich story. You would know who made it, when it was made, and all of the circumstances surrounding it. Your items were a part of you, your community and your environment. They tell a story… This class will include wood selection, knife safety and ancient perspectives on creating a functional work of art that brings harmony to the journey of carver and the one-legged (tree) being that supplied the wood.  The bowl of your spoon will be burned with a hot coal from the fire (which, by the way, we’ll start with a hand drill in the Old Way).

    Outdoor Cooking with Chris Morasky

    There’s something really amazing (and delicious!) about opening a pit that’s been cooking your food for the past 5 hours or more. The steam becomes more and more intense as the layers of earth and greenery are slowly peeled away and the aroma becomes oh sooooo yummy! Food cooked this way is so rich and flavorful and the meat just falls off the bones. So good!!!!

    This is a mentoring program. We will make fires by rubbing sticks together, learn edible and medicinal plants, move silently, feel the natural rhythm of the land, and discover ancient wisdom as we “seek what they sought.” All classes are taught with love, compassion, non-violent communication (NVC) methods, and the inherent principles of living a life in Harmony with the Earth.

    Stone and Bone Tools with Chris Morasky

    Making effective stone and bone tools is both a science and an art. Learn about your ancestors by replicating their tools! The artifact pictured above is a weather-worn core that flakes were removed from. Those flakes were probably used unmodified for basic skinning and cutting needs and simply dropped when they got too dull.

    Learn the skills to effectively, easily and ethically capture animals for food, just as our ancestors did for hundreds of thousands of years. This ain’t no book learnin’!
