Living Wild

P1050267          IMG_0088

Daniella Roze’s June 12 “Living Wild in the Stone Age” presentation was the most inspiring thing I’ve seen in a long time. The slideshow photos were stunning, and the talk itself held the listeners’ attention with a combination of adventure stories, practical survival skills, and poetry. It was also interesting to hear about the spiritual insights gained from such a close personal connection to the land, to a small community of people, and to the immediate sources of one’s food and water.

After several months of advance preparation — studying traditional hunting and gathering skills, learning to make Paleolithic tools & clothing — Roze’s group lived for one month in the mountains of northern Washington, with no modern technology.
