Each day at Wild Ways we fully immerse ourselves in Natural Education; using primitive tools, materials, and the natural environment, students are encouraged to follow their own will and imagination on the pathways of discovery and creativity. This segues to the super learning that occurs during the blissful sense of timelessness individuals feel when given the freedom to find out what they are impassioned to find out—at their own pace.
The love of learning is born into each and every soul. Intrinsic to human survival, and the thriving of our species, the love of learning drives the unique development of intelligence in every person--as it has driven the evolution of intelligence for our species--and therefore, the evolution of us. We did not develop large brains from staring at computer screens, nor from being bombarded with information, nor even from reading books. This amazing process most certainly was not dictated to us. It came about as a result of us following our inspirations practicing primitive skills, which are ever creative, inventive, imaginative, and yet grounded in actual physics.
We, as educational guides, need not inspire within any child that which nature already has. We need simply to recognize the divine and unique genius already living in each individual—allow it, nourish it, encourage it!
