What Should I expect if I take a class with Luke?
All classes are different and are personally designed for the individual and their needs. However, all classes will have a heavy dose of wilderness and mindfulness. All classes will include learning about wild medicinal and edibles in the area, body awareness, primitive fire, basic and advanced survival skills, as well as tracking and learning how to reconnect to the land.
There are several things that characterize Luke’s teaching style:
Regardless of where you are in your life Luke will listen and teach with an open and understanding mind. Luke’s goal is to make you feel comfortable and safe so that you can best learn. Whether you are learning how to make friction fire or learning more about your habits in life, Luke will patiently help you along.
Lessons are best learned with a dash of humor. After many years of teaching, Luke knows the importance of a well placed joke and how to keep things from getting to serious. “Don’t take life to seriously, no one gets out alive anyway”
Although Luke has a great deal of personal experience, he always strives to maintain “beginner’s mind”. This approach reminds Luke to be open to new experiences, lessons, situations and people, without any preconceived notions. Beginner’s mind also helps Luke to stay humble and aware. This humility invites others to drop their egos at the door.
