Mission

LIVING WILD

We aim to "live" in the wilderness, rather than "survive" it to get back to civilization.


Our programs focus on re-kindling and applying the practical skills based on ancient knowledge, experiencing the inter-dependency necessary in community living, and nurturing an appreciation for the Earth as a living organism. We do this through intensive hands-on wilderness living skills training, teaching people how to harvest and transform the gifts of nature for everyday needs such as tools, fire, shelter, food.... in a conscientious and sustainable manner, as the ancients did.

The skills:


  • basic skills; fire making and bindings

  • Stone flakes and fire kits
  • wild edible and medicinal plants
  • large animal processing
  • bow and arrow making
  • hunting and trapping methods
  • fishing techniques 
  • rawhide
  • hide tanning
  • clothing and moccasin making
  • stone and bone tools
  • horse riding, packing and driving
  • basketry
  • pottery
  • shelters
  • Teaching bow-drill
  • ecology and nature awareness

What we offer:

Four Seasons Prehistoric Project is a small school located in North Central Washington. Our goal is to offer high quality instruction in Stone Age living skills to give people the confidence to live in the wilderness simply yet comfortably.

We are experienced and passionate about 
not just teaching the skills but making them a part of our daily life. This school is not our job; it's our way of life. We live simply, wear buckskin clothing, and eat wild foods, happy to live in a sustainable, respectful manner.


First friction fire!

We offer small classes limited to 10-15 participants so that people can get the individual attention necessary to learn the skills effectively.

We've spent a long time thinking about the sequences of skills taught in our classes so that you can experience how the tools you make are used in their appropriate context. For instance, we will teach you how to make stone tools, then let you use them in a variety of tasks throughout the rest of classes so that you can test their effectiveness when used properly.

We strongly believe that learning primitive living skills is best done by being immersed in a primitive living setting. Therefore, participants stay at a primitive camp where meals are cooked on an open fire, water is carried from the nearby creek, and people tell stories or play music around the campfire as entertainment.




Families and children help create a village atmosphere

Moreover, we give you time to get acquainted to new tools and materials, letting you gain experience and comfort with things that maybe unfamiliar.




So come Live Wild and help make the world a better place.

    1. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

      Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

      If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

      You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

      Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

      These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

      Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

      Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.

      Click here to watch video!

      Thanks again.

  2. I think you are an amazing woman! I totally admire your strength and knowledge in living as the creator intended us (In harmony and respect with nature). Today no one cares about all of the garbage we clutter our earth with or the toxins we put into our waters or excessive consumption of our resources including plants and animals to the point of total extinction. They don't respect the source of their prepackaged food or feel anything for the sacrifice made of the animals life to overfill their stomach. They don't even know where it came from. I organic farm and even thank the plants for their sacrifice as well as chickens for the eggs.Everyone of us should go on a journey like this once in our life to appreciate mother earth more before its too late! I for one would like to join in this experience if only for a short while to learn the old ways of all of our ancestors. Can you please tell me if you are still having the emersion experiences.



    if so more info please.

  8. Spending time in the wilderness means that you have to be constantly alert about your surroundings and environment. After all the wilderness is far from safe, but it can be much safer if you’re aware of certain dangers and risks.  See more http://survival-mastery.com/skills/bushcraft/how-to-survive-in-the-wild.html

  11. It's such an amazing thing. And you're a great person.
    If I could just come to your country, I would do that this very second. But I'm from Poland, I can barely speak English and I have no money for this kind of travel. The only thing I can do is just try to live that way as much as I can in my country.
    Have a nice day

  13. Just saw your amazing project on English television with Ben Foyle, there is a piece of you in all of us, buried under misery, work and capitalism, a flickering light. I've learnt basketry, felting, spinning fishing, butchery and archery, being lucky enough to live deep in West Dorset by the sea. Your skills are a fundamental resource for our survival as a species and I wish I could learn more. We cannot continue as we are and history shows us that no civilisation lasts forever, yet we think we know better and are 'modern'. When the oil runs out (and it will) I'm running for the forest. Love and Light to you Lynx

  18. Living wild is all about skills. You can have all the gear you might need, but without the knowhow, survival can be a big issue. Your images are great, they depict exactly what living in the wild is all about. Here is another fascinating wilderness survival article: http://survival-mastery.com/skills/bushcraft/living-in-the-wilderness.html

  19. I love your advocacy. Back when we were small, my brothers and I are often with our parents to camp. My dad, being an outdoor guy insisted we learn the basic skills for survival - that means, starting a fire from scratch, purifying water using stones, rocks, etc,map and traditional compass reading. I now understand that whenn you have these skills, your confidence level really hits the roof...and you learn to be more thankful about any blessings you have in life. For more tips on how to jumpstart your first fire from scratch, see this link http://myoutdoorslife.com/basics/how-to-start-a-fire.html

  26. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

    Click on the link bellow to find out how the early pioneers - who had a long hard journey ahead - built the Self-Feeding Fire in order to take a much needed refreshing nap (no need to add logs).

    Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

    So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
