Our connection to fire is the most primal of all our relationships providing us with warmth and safety as well as the ability to cook our food and purify our water. Those that learn to “Walk With Fire” have a movable shelter wherever they go.  

Learning the principles of tinder, kindling, and fire building are essential for anyone who spends time outdoors. Developing a relationship with fire by friction is powerfully inspirational and deeply transformative. Every fire is a ceremony and right of passage in itself.  

What to Expect: Training in all aspects of

  • Plant identification and harvesting
  • Hatchet and knife work
  • Tinder and kindling preparation
  • Flint and steel
  • Fire by friction techniques like bow drill, hand drill, pump drill and fire saw

Participants will complete their own fire by friction kit and gain all the comprehensive knowledge and experience that, combined with focused dirt time will allow you to ‘Walk with Fire’.
