Guardian Intensive Training Sweden – Shadows of the Forest
Immerse yourself in the wilderness, challenge yourself to your edge and learn to be a Guardian of your People and Nature!
This training is for you who yearn to live in oneness with nature, directly from what nature around us gives us. It is for you who want learn the ancestral skills of hunting and gathering, living in a tight-knit circle with fellow Guardians.
This training is a nomadic experience, it is the way of the scout. We will live with only what we really need, on the edge where we are truly alive – just like all the other wild animals in the forest. We need to rely on our own and our groups’ capabilities – we are only as strong as our weakest link.
We live closely together, like a pack of Wolves, where we rely directly on the group and the group relies on us – we are all organs within a greater organism, and every part needs to function for the function of the whole.
The life of the Guardian is a life of missions. There is always a mission to pursue, there is always somewhere where we are needed. Our Mother Earth is under siege and we Guardians have an important part to play in restoring balance.
Change starts from within and we become what we surround ourselves with. We will help each other to embrace our fears and grow into our full potential selves.
Nature around us is our foremost guide and we learn from all the beings that surrounds us. We get up with the dawn when all the other animals are active, we move in sync and silence, we practice stealth and low imprint – like shadows. We see but are not seen, we hear but are not heard, we smell but are not smelled.
We clean up and restore wherever we go, fulfilling our role as Guardians of the forest. We are a circle within all the other circles of life.
During this training you will learn to get your food directly from nature, make fire directly from nature and build shelters directly from nature. You will learn how to walk like a native, making as little disturbance as possible, moving together like one being. You will practice awareness, train your senses and find balance through exercises that will be a natural part of the flow of our daily lives.
THIS IS AN INTENSE EXPERIENCE – it is for you thrive on challenges and like living on the edge.
The training starts at home a few weeks before we get together in the forest. We will all practice the same awareness exercises and start synchronizing our movements, coming into flow with each other like a flock of birds singing the same song.
We have many years’ experience of Guardians training and clan living in wildernessto share with you and we will draw upon our shared group knowledge to meet all our needs.
Dates: Immersion November 1-10th 2019, at home training starts on October 14th.
Meeting place: Vackstanäs, Södertälje, Sweden
We look forward to sit with you around the fire of our Hearths!
