We think of nature-based living as well-developed ways of surviving in, thriving with, learning from, and giving back to the planet we live on and with. Living with the land is different for each person. Taking part in a Firemaker gathering gives folks an invitation to examine ways they might want to deepen their relationship with what surrounds them: life in every direction!
All of our ancestors knew how to live well without modern tools and materials. Indeed, many nonindustrial technologies are so advanced that when colonizing people came into contact with the indigenous people who practiced them, the technologies were often considered so awesome and amazing as to be magical. The nature-based technologies are still that advanced, and these ways are not lost. Firemaker is a wonderful opportunity to bring some awesome, amazing nature-based magic into your own life (while surrounded with awesome, amazing, and magical people you'll want to bring home with you).
