What Jim R. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love it! These classes provide a platform...a place for people gather together on a regular basis in a natural wild environment; to share the camaraderie and love of the natural environment with other nature lovers and nature lovers to be. It's a place to build and strengthen the awareness and experience of our inherent connection/relationship with our mother earth. The practice of these ancient Aboriginal Skills greatly assists the deepening of this vital relationship. The result, is greater health, peace, harmony, joy and unconditional love!
