This series is a video version of a class I taught at Wintercount Primitive Skills gathering in February.
There is a big focus on the physical skills of survival at most of the gatherings I teach at, in most of the “survival skills” literature and videos and n most “survival shows”. These are important, but not as important as the deeper skills. Our minds are hands down our most important tools, and if you don’t have the skills to keep yourself calm and grounded in survival situations, you lose a lot of the capacity of your most important tool. Part of why I chose to participate on Alone Season 6 was to demonstrate this. My success, living for 73 days on my own in the arctic and coming in as the runner up, stand as a testament to the importance of connection.
This series explains why nurturing connection and a positive mental attitude may be the most important skills you can practice, and gives tips for how to do so, drawing on my decades of experience with these skills and wilderness living, and my time on Alone Season 6.
