A summary

A Woodland Prospectus Taking inspiration from present day indigenous tribal cultures, Folklore, Mythology, this land’s history and our ancestral spiritual heritage, Wildlings School was created, a first step in unearthing and reestablishing this lands lost indigenous Animistic culture. Viewing the world and our place in it through the lens of animism, we recognise that all life is interconnected and that human beings are no exception to this. Children are born with an inherent understanding that they are part of nature. Through their innocence, they can access an innate ability to connect to their wild selves and to the forces and beings who are in constant communication with us through the face of nature. We believe that now, more than ever, it is crucial to help our children develop these natural abilities, so that they remain invested in their future and take their place as guardians of the natural world.

Primal Healing ·Authentic British Indigenous Shamanism
Huw Mackin is a British Shamanic practitioner, residential child practitioner, a highly qualified outdoor professional, international mountain leader, natural horse handler, bushcraft and survival expert, and above all else, a father. Huw came from a long profession working with emotionally traumatised children and young people for local authorities and other institutions. Inspired by the shortcomings of these institutions, Huw created long term immersive wilderness based programs for local authorities focused on rehabilitating children deemed ‘unreachable’, with great success. The progression of Huw’s professional career, along with his own personal healing journey, and the realisation that the problems facing humanity today stem from a lost connection with the natural world, inspired Huw to launch his company: Primal Healing, which offers a range of healings, expeditions, courses and programs designed to support people back into relationship with the natural world, one of which being ‘Wildlings school of Woodcraft & Wiccary’, the UK’s first animistic nature based school for children. Taking inspiration from present day indigenous tribal cultures, folklore, mythology, this land’s history and our ancestral spiritual heritage, Huw created Wildlings School, offering children a greater understanding of how to maintain a direct and boundless relationship with this truly magical world through exploration and play. Wildlings School of Woodcraft and Wiccary - where folklore is law, magic is real and everything is possible.

Communication & Contact

Communication and Contact If needed parents will be able to contact staff onsite directly throughout the day. We want families to be as invested and informed as possible. So after each term, parents will be sent a full write up giving them a clear insight and overview of what took place throughout the term along with photos via email. For the final session of the year, attenders, parents and families will have an opportunity to come and spend the day at Wildlings School for a closing ceremony and celebration. This is also an opportunity to bring the Wildlings community together, for the children to showcase their ongoing projects, and to have a fun filled day!
