Hello and Welcome to Wilderness Awareness and Survival Skills in Denver!
My name is Andrew. My goal for this group is to help people understand and find relationships with nature. I like to teach how to build habits of awareness that reveal the complex relationships of our environment. I also teach classes on primitive skills such as fire-by-friction, stone tools, tracking, finding shelter, finding and cleaning water, wild edibles, containers, hunting weapons, traps, bird language and much more. I have recently started intensifying teaching these classes. If you have any suggestions for anything you would like to do or learn, please feel free to send me an e-mail.
I am from Indiana, where I studied for three years with an experienced student of Tom Brown named Kevin. I am also studying Kamana, a program that combines a native and ecological perspective to hone the art of questioning. What I learned from Kevin and Kamana have allowed me to understand the natural patterns of Colorado fluently through research, journaling, observation, and other core routines that I hope to share with you.
