Learn About Native American Earth Skills
Nov 05, 2014 02:16PM
Maria Matthai, a graduate of Tom Brown’s Wilderness Survival School, will teach a series of classes in Earth-based skills beginning from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., December 6, which embody the teachings of Apache Elder and Shaman Stalking Wolf, who experienced and taught that the earth is sacred and alive. The Earthbased skills span the areas of meditation, healing, awareness and survival.
Matthai spent six years with the Sioux Indian tribe in South Dakota. “The creator speaks to us through the natural world and through our own souls. Learn awareness and spiritual skills to connect more deeply with nature and your own spiritual being,” says Matthai. “Stress reduction, self-empowerment and healing are the results of this greater empathy with the natural world.” Matthai is also available to speak for groups and schools throughout the Lehigh Valley.
