Chris Morasky is a wildlife biologist with 30 years experience teaching Stone Age skills and nature connection and is considered one of the top Stone Age skills experts in North America. After many years spent living in the wilderness and small communities of British Columbia, Idaho and Utah, Chris left his primitive lifestyle and transitioned to living in the metropolis of Los Angeles. Through this experience, Chris has gained a unique perspective on the intersection of ancient skills and future technology, and he’s here to tell us why it’s essential for humanity to understand how to merge the wisdom of our ancestors with the ideas and technology of the future.

In this episode, Chris encourages us to look at the bigger picture philosophies of ReWilding. While learning how to tan a hide and start a friction fire are valuable skills, the true purpose of ReWilding can sometimes get lost in these minute details. Chris shares how we can use primitive skills, nature connection and indigenous wisdom as doorways to healing and gaining a better understanding of our interconnectedness.
