Intuition in Nature & Sensory Awareness Games

"He realized early on that his instincts needed privacy in which to operate." From the Western Novel, Lonesome Dove

There is countless documentation of "amazing" feats of awareness in native cultures, a great deal of it in tracking cultures. We may call these feats "amazing" but it is really our natural state that has become dulled in modern life. Developing a 6th sense, following animals intuitively, finding useful plants, and having powerful dreams are just a few of the "side effects" of being close to nature.

I watched my teacher, Jon Young, do so many uncanny things that it just became commonplace after a while. And very early on in my study of tracking, survival, and martial arts I became able to sense danger, the presence of others, and find animals intuitively.

Practicing sensory awareness is really the key to this ability for the tracker.

Some of what we'll practice:

Expanded Peripheral Vision

Intuitive Tracking

Sensing Intention

Other Sensory Awareness Games

Dress warmly but bring what you would on a regular day hike. If it's raining I'll put up a big tarp so we're not all standing around in the rain.

Clothing: Rain gear, boots and wool socks, several layers, hat, & gloves.


Be careful about using GPS. It usually leads people past the Lewis & Clark parking lot.

We'll meet in the Lewis and Clark parking lot at 10:00 am then do a quick shuttle down to the Sandy River.

    Tomorrow is going to be super fun. Maybe also bring a little pad or mini tarp to sit or lay on. We'll be moving around quite a bit but also sitting. And layers, layers, layers. [masked]
