A summary
Ever dreamt of having a close relationship with the natural environment. Sleeping out, hearing the sounds of the night, smelling the smoke of your fire and feeling safe and warm in your newly built shelter. Bushcraft is about knowing how to look after yourself in nature and in-turn taking care of nature. Nature Awareness is about increasing your awareness of nature beyond the physical; opening our eyes and senses to your surroundings. Our three day bushcraft and nature awareness camp for women will equip you with a wide variety of skills and experiences. And we look forward to welcoming you to our relaxed and friendly camp.
About your mentor
Hannah at Natural Pathways
Outdoor educator and bushcraft instructor
Hannah has been teaching bushcraft skills and nature awareness to adults and children close to two decades. She also runs courses for schools and youth groups. She is well known for her ability to pass on her skills in a relaxed and engaging manner. Hannah was inspired by teachings of Tom Brown Jr, well-known author and founder of the Tracker School in America. Tom Brown grew up along side a native American from the Apache tribe learning many valuable Earth living skills that he continues to pass on to many people through his trainings. As well as attending courses in America with Tom Brown, Hannah has attended a year’s course on Primitive Survival Skills with Trackways here in the UK. She completed the course with a week's Survival Quest in Scotland. She has since gone on to further her training completing various survival courses, wild food courses and Forest School level 3. Having lived in the Daintree Rainforest in the Australian outback for a year, she gained much experience from practising a sustainable way of living. Hannah has practised Reflexology and Reiki for the past thirty years and has always had an interest in alternative medicine and the healing properties of plants, treating herself and her children with herbal and homoeopathic remedies where possible. Hannah feels it is important to develop her personal awareness when relating to herself and others, as a parent and within a group. She has attended self-development courses such as Parent-Link, Non-violent Communication, the Sedona Method and Psychology of Vision. Hannah home educated her three children for over ten years providing for them a wide range of experiences as they grew up and prior to them moving on to further education. Keen to pass on her knowledge to others, in particular to children, it is her wish to bring them closer to Nature through Nature Awareness activities and hands-on experience with survival/bushcraft skills.
