SHELTER: Creating a Community Together
this course is not available or the scheduled
dates don't work for you please
INSTRUCTOR: Matt (“Tofu”) Corradino
Last February Matt and a bunch of students had an awesome time learning and building shelters here in the Pines. But, as he tells it: “You can never learn enough about Number 1 on the sacred order - Shelter!”
So, Tom has asked Matt to run another shelter class, and in turn Matt wants to work with you to employ your hands, backs, heads, and hearts, as you gather, build, and live-in several of the shelter-types taught in the Standard class, such as:
· Debris Hut
Together you will live as a community in that camp as it progresses from a pile of leaves to a mini, primitive village.
This beauty and cohesion of this warm, communal, lifestyle is one of the things that Grandfather loved best during his travels throughout North and South America. Having the opportunity to stay in a shelter that retains and exudes the very energy and warmth that you put into it as you build it - is one of the most rewarding feelings that you can get from using the tools that Tom Brown Jr learned from Grandfather, and now teaches us.
As we know our “shelters” are absolutely essential for us as human beings, in order to feel safe in body, mind, and spirit. After this exciting 4-day class with Matt, you will have the knowledge and ability to build a comfortable and inviting shelter wherever you go!
