Having relied for thousands of years on our innate senses and instincts to interpret landscapes, find food, survive and thrive, humans are still equipped with powerful instinctual abilities to connect with nature. Because of our rapidly changing lifestyles and reduced opportunities for direct interaction with our ecosystem oftentimes these senses are in a lower state or asleep.

Hunting and gathering offer a unique way of interacting with our environment – by moving from observer to direct participant in the natural drama of life that unfolds around us. This once commonplace experience provides a unique opportunity to awaken our primal senses and connect to our own instinctual energy and ability, which can be profoundly useful in all aspects of life and broaden the experience of being human.
