The purpose of this blog is to document my experiences in trying to live a more natural life. I am interested in learning primitive skills and aspects of indigenous lifeways that promote the well-being of individuals, society, the earth and everything in it.

Some of my goals are to learn to hunt and gather, practice permaculture, prepare foods traditionally, use herbs for medicine, produce less waste, return to the earth what I take, and live mindfully of plants, animals, and every other being on earth.

Additionally, I will be researching the negative effects of our modern-day practices, such as processing synthetic materials, using plastic, drinking chlorinated and fluoridated water, using toxic chemicals for cleaning, beauty, and hygienic products, eating domesticated plants and animals, and the lack of importance placed on spiritual practices.

In short, I am in search of a village.
