Human Bushcraft and Wild Living, Otaki Gorge, Kapiti Coast



This workshop is for anyone looking for an immersion experience into culture and transformation. The experiences and content are especially applicable to people looking to understand how to enhance holistic relationships and bridge this into the modern world and systems. It is empowering and encouraging and instantly applicable outside of the workshop.

It is an opportunity to be mentored and participate in experiences that are designed to revivify you and awaken your deepest gifts and purpose.

This deep immersion over 6 days invites you into practices that honour the life stages, deepening your understanding of life, including the universal, natural and human principles of connection. The experience we will share is gleaned from different ancient indigenous cultures around the world including Native American ceremony and made accessible for western culture while honouring their origins.

In a time when historic trauma has caused a widespread disconnection and loss of mentoring in the community, many of the cultural elements that have evolved over time in a deep relationship with nature have become lost. From this loss, we may find ourselves struggling with blocks which prevent us from reaching our potential as individuals and as a collective species.

In recognizing that people have an innate need to step into our most creative and powerful self, transformation out of stuck patterns into sharing our personal genius is the pathway which makes this possible. The methods which support this are held within the ancient teachings and rituals of nature-based cultures.

These powerful connective practices support each of us in discovering our deepest gifts and purpose, healing from grief and trauma, and they bring all generations together in harmony with the earth and each other.

This experiential gathering aims to support you in healing grief, awakening your deepest purpose and illuminating a vision for your life and your unique contribution to humanity and the world.

What is involved?
Included in the experiential training will be the opportunity to explore:
- Understanding the stages of life to be able to live them to their fullness
- Understanding life transitions and the challenges that come with them, for boys/men – girls/women
- Rites of Passage that you have missed in growing up so that you can access your full power as an adult
- How to facilitate transitions for others
- Learning about the traditions of honouring life’s stages as applied by First Nations
- Ancient, very alive and very powerful rituals, and see where they will take you and how you can integrate their power into your own life and work
- Accessing your own cultural roots
- Supporting social change
- Supporting a healthy and happy future for the unborn generations and all of the creation
- Experiencing a vibrant, healthy community with other participants, full of mutual inspiration and support

Sal Gencarelle will lead this 6-day immersion. He is a cultural bridge between traditional healing ceremonies and the modern world. His intensive mentoring period required both dedication and sacrifice, spending 17 years as a ceremonial guide, creator, singer, and mentor under the direct supervision of a Native American healer, Benjamin Godfrey Chipps, Sr. It was through this process that he earned the responsibility to pass the teachings on.
