Come and learn the ancient art of creating fire!

“Making fire is a form of prayer. With your hands together you bow over and over hoping that fire will come and visit you. With the smoke rising, you send prayers and thanks to the sky. This is how the oldest Gods were worshipped. Gods of bone, and wood, and rock, and blood.”  ~Luke McLaughlin (Holistic Survival School)

Long before humans had access to matches, lighters, and gasoline, fires were created a variety of ways. Using wood friction by way of the bow drill, and rare earth metals like cerium, fire was created.
