From Forest To Fire

Forest To 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)

For almost a MILLION YEARS humans have created fire. Neanderthals (the dominant humanoid species before modern humans) learned the secrets of fire.

Fire has allowed humans to leave the warm, comfortable temperate zones on the planet and spread out everywhere in search of food and resources.

In our modern, computerised world fire is still literally magic. Fire captivates us and our passion for it is literally ingrained in our DNA.

Fire helps us keep warm, cook food, and ward off threats

In our modern lives we use fire almost every day for something. It powers most of our cars. It heats our homes, it powers war. (The proper name for a gun is FIREarm)

In this workshop students will learn theory behind fire, including the “fire triangle”
