Nature One

NATURE ONE will rock your world by introducing you to the magic of survival skills & deep nature connection.

Many in our community have begun their Nature Philosophy journey through exploring the magic of NATURE ONE.


All the skills you learn in NATURE ONE will keep you alive in the wilderness and radically enliven your camping adventures. In a friendly group setting our skilled instructor team will lead you through a broad range of survival tools & nature connection activities. 

NATURE ONE is always a huge amount of fun. The program is packed full of direct experiences with skills, all of which you can take home and master.


NATURE ONE take home skills:

• Shelter Construction
• Water Purification
• Hand Drill Primitive Fire
• Bird Language & Nature Observation
• Silence Meditations
• Survival Awareness & Movement
• Animal Tracking & Hunting
• Wild Harvested Bush Foods & Primitive Cooking
• Basketry & String Making

Nature Philosophy has a deep respect for indigenous culture. We believe survival skills courses are only complete when woven together with local indigenous wisdom. During NATURE 1 we are very fortunate as local Gumbaynggirr Elder Mark Flanders joins us to share stories about local Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal culture and yarn about traditional bush foods.



Sam Robertson, Kate Rydge and JJ Bruce, have extensive experience with being "on survival" and are passionate presenters. Sam, Kate & JJ have all spent considerable time learning from Australian Aboriginal communities and American survival skills experts. Sam, Kate & JJ have been teaching groups together for over a decade and have each dedicated their lives to cultivating deep nature connection in Australia.



NATURE ONE can be offered as a private event which is tailored to meet your group's specific needs. By crafting unique 3 - 4 day programs we can balance the skills of survival with the wild sourced wisdom of awareness.  If this is of interest to your business or group of friends please be in touch with Kate & Sam at

We're really excited to have you join us and look forward to hearing from you.
