Who We Are

“WALKING WITH THE ANIMAL”

is about
Developing a Relationship
with the animal as we track: our attitude and state of mind, how we approach the trail and then
How we Merge
Intuitive and Practical tracking.

JIM LOWERY &
MARY BROOKS

of   Earth Skills
who for years have sought to weave intuitive tracking, with its ancient roots among indigenous trackers, into the skill set of modern trackers as a rich addendum to “technical tracking.”

This website is an invitation to explore the principles and methods evolving from their field work, which has been tested and practiced by students in their recent “Walk with the Animal” series of workshops. The stories and insights of these students form much of the wisdom shared here.*

We hope you will discover new ideas, methods and inspiration.
