Tribal life has been lost to us. Not so long ago we decided it was barbaric, unnecessary and inefficient. If our ancestors had felt this way none of us would be here now. Family is the glue that holds a nation together. In an ancient setting the family was the most important survival skill imaginable. It was a technology more important than any craft or skill because it was the mechanism that created space for each individual to thrive. Infants all the way to elders had their role, their own space to hold, that benefited the entire tribe.
Today teenagers are seen as trouble because the space they held in the tribe no longer exists in most modern contexts. Teenagers used to live in a role of service to the tribe. They were the bridge between the kids and adults. They held the space of the mentor and apprentice because they had the ability to see the world both as an adult and a child. The only reason "the teen years" exist in pop culture is because they have no space to hold. Lucky are the ones that do but the rest risk making dangerous choices that effect them for the rest of their life. Nature helps facilitate healthy growth not just for teens but for any age and any family.
Our Family Lessons provide a fun learning opportunity for everyone. Not only will we delve into any and all primitive skills of your choice but we also explore the roles of a family in the context of tribal life.
