Roy Ashton, this course facilitator, is one of the few people in the world capable of the most difficult technique of making fire by rubbing sticks, the so-called Creator's Fire, as demonstrated in his YouTube videos (Roy can literally make fire with 2x sticks in under 3 minutes!)
He has spent months living in the African bush with traditional hunter-gatherers in West Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa, surviving angry tribesmen wielding machetes and poison arrows, watching an African eye worm blur his vision, and eating bush foods ranging from bark to brains to lizards and rats. He has taught bush skills to adults and children on 4 continents, including to young indigenous people who have forgotten them.
Roy is a wilderness guide in Imfolozi Game Reserve leading specialist trails, a nature connection and rite-of-passage facilitator, a mountain guide and qualified Zen Coach. In 2019, Roy spent a month surviving entirely on foraged foods!
