Nature Philosophy

Nature Philosophy offers personal transformation and deep nature connection through bush survival skills, sacred ceremony and wild sourced wisdom. 

Time and time again we see our tribe deeply embrace the natural world, experience full body awakenings and soul level transformation. 

We facilitate programs for families, women and men who are ready to remember their place in the natural world. We would love you to join us...



All of us at Nature Philosophy would like to show our profound respect and love for all indigenous communities around the world. We acknowledge that indigenous wisdom is a global knoweldge bank held by humans from all races and countries. Primitive skills are the original survival skills which all humans once used in order to live in harmony with the earth. Nature Philosophy programs help to share these skills and keep them alive in the modern day.


We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, of our ancestors and elders - past and present, on which our programs take place.  With a special recognition to the elders past and present from the Gumbangirr people of the North Coast of NSW, our Yolngu families of North-East Arnhem Land and the Lipan Apache people of North America.

Words cannot thank Kate and Sam enough for their guidance and love through this process. Their humility, integrity and huge hearts have inspired me deeply. Thank you for holding space for people like me to step into my life and vision with a deeper honour for this earth.”
