PRIVATE TUITION | ONE TO ONE

INTRODUCTION

Taking you away from the rat race. Humans are seeking out nature during these times. A closer relationship to the natural world. We have been separated from nature; but humans are nature. Most overnight courses take place in private (wild-like) woodland in Sevenoaks, Kent. However, we also work in different sites & scout camps around London & Buckinghamshire.

Whether you are beginner wishing to step out of the comfort zone or whether you are already skilled. Everyone will have their own particular passions or interests. Feel free to ask as many questions as you wish. You will be shown all practical demonstration with a chance to practise for yourself, and put skills to the test for full day or overnight experience.

Wilderness skills & bushcraft teach a new sense of awareness and have the ability to evolve personal development. Tapping into a knowledge shared by our tribal ancestors and by indigenous cultures whom exist in the world today - they are guardians of the last remaining rainforests on the planet. 

 

Nature is an amazing teacher & healer if we can choose to spend time with our own selves, surrounded by its forces and beauty. Engaging the human senses and awareness into nature, can be powerful in so many different ways. 

It is outside the comfort zone, where we can begin to develop. Wilderness skills provide the ability to travel further, off the beaten track and with less items, learning to be more self-sufficient and depending on what nature provides. 

Wildeye shares wilderness skills & knowledge in the aims of developing confidence within nature and personal responsibility towards the environment. Encouraging an independent experience in the woods, away from the public.

WHAT TO BRING

 

Please refer to the blog post regarding kit list for overnight camps. 3 Season sleeping bags & roll/foam mats are required. Bring a torch, waterproof clothing, a day sack and a good pair of outdoor trainers/boots.

FOOD & WATER

 

Camps are self-catered on day 1. Breakfast is provided for overnight camps.

There is drinking water on site to refill bottles. You are required to bring a packed lunch for the first day & an evening meal to cook over a fire for dinner time. Camp food ideas will be shared for inspiration. A warm, energy boosting, Middle-Eastern Veg & gluten free breakfast is provided for. 

AWARENESS FOR OVERNIGHT CAMPS

Be prepared to adapt to British weather conditions. Survival skills can empower and teach resilience. One to one tuition allows extra focus & flexibility. Spend the day learning essential wilderness skills & useful bushcraft, required to set you up for a night left in solitude; sleeping under a canopy of trees. You will receive knowledge on wilderness skills, survival psychology & woodland ecology. Clear instructions & demonstrations of all skills are given, followed by the opportunity to have a try & practise for yourself. You will have a choice of what skills you wish to focus more or less on. Maybe you wish to spend less time building natural shelters and more time focusing on fire lighting techniques, wood carving, trapping or water purification techniques. We can cater the experience to suit your educational needs and what you wish to personally experience in the woods. 

 

Find your own patch in the woods, create your camp and cook an evening meal over a fire. Finish the evening staring at the fire (natures TV) The night is what you make of it. When the evening arrives, you’ll be on your own. 

 

The next morning you will wake up under the trees, the sound of a flute will call you to breakfast. Spend the rest of the morning learning further knowledge, de-camp, apply leave no trace, say goodbye to the trees and be on your way home.

Leave camp feeling empowered, having had an independent experience learning & applying skills of the wild. Gain a new found perception of the natural world.
