Ce vei face

In this hands-on experience we will call forth the sacred spark from the belly of the earth as you learn the ancient art of fire starting. Fire has been at the centre of civilizations for generations. It was used to draw people together, a place of gathering, to cook our food, to keep our spirits up in perilous times, to purify drinking water, to light our way in darkness, to cauterize wounds and it has been used in many kinds of ceremony. We simply can’t do without it!

You will learn to:

-Develop your relationship with fire as a living spirit.
-Locate dry tinder and firewood
-Learn various methods of fire starting using:
a single match, magnesium strips, magnifying glass, flint and steel on char cloth and of course the exciting friction fire.
-Learn how to use a bow drill kit with proper technique as well as hand drill kit.
-Try your skill at a fire challenge if you so choose to accept them!
-Have loads of fun being out on the land and reconnecting with nature!
-Depending on time, you may be able learn how to harvest wood in a traditionally respectful way to make your own friction fire kit.

*Difficulty level will be based on the skill level of participants.
Other things to note
We will be out in the environment where the weather can change quickly, so wear several layers and bring a raincoat, hat, sunscreen or anything else you may need to stay warm and dry.

My love for the natural world was deeply seeded as a young child growing up exploring the majestic mountains and rivers of the Kootenay Valley of BC. My passion for bushcraft and the outdoors may only be trumped by my excitement to share it with others. I combine primitive skills and wilderness survival skills with traditional earth based teachings to deliver engaging, fun and informative experiences. I have taught outdoor and environmental education to kids, youth and adults all over the world including Benin, Romania, Colombia, the United States and even all across Canada on my bicycle!

Mireille is one of the most passionate yet grounded leaders I've had the honor of being led by and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone! She is so extremely knowledgeable not just from her classroom studies but moreover her hands on experiences she gains by all the time she has clearly invested in the hard work she does. She made us feel like she would have spent all day with us if needed and like we were the only thing on her mind and in her heart that day, she made it so much fun yet so educational and extremely inspiring! I plan to do many more private events with Mireille for our business (such great opportunities here for team building events) as well as our young family who love to be outside and learn, learn, learn...her knowledge is so vast and she is so excited about what she does I feel the options of experiences she has to offer are endless! Thank you for such a beautiful day Mireille for my bestfriend and I to not only learn aaaalllll about fire but to create our own little bestie fire ceremony <3

An instructor with incredible skills and talent! Mireille’s knowledge of the history of Fire, her understanding of and reverence for the life-giving capacities of the land, her ability to draw from the land it’s offerings of Fire-starting materials, her skill in creating Fire from seemingly nothing, her ability to relate to me and understand my skill level and pose probing questions that caused me to think deeply about the whole process . . . All well worth any amount of time or money!!!

This is a really rewarding experience. It felt like we lost track of time somewhat. Lots of good and useful information and very much in connection with what I value. Thanks! I'll recommend it to those that stay with us when they AirBnB.

We absolutely loved the Evolution of Fire workshop with Mireille. Through Mireille's passion and excitement, we learned so much about trees, having gratitude towards nature, offerings, the connection with Mother Earth, how to start a friction fire, and much more. If you are interested in First Nations, fire and nature, Mireille is your guide and teacher!
