10 day Philosophy and

the Temples of Soul

with Tom Brown Jr.

October 21st - 30th

Nature Philosophy Australia and Nature’s Apprentice are thrilled to announce Tom Brown Jr’s first ever Australian tour -  America's most acclaimed outdoorsman, renowned tracker, best-selling author and founder of Tracker School.

In October 2018, Tom Brown Jr., supported by Malcolm Ringwalt, will offer two intensive courses - Tracking and Awareness; and Philosophy and Temples of Soul. Both programs are usually only open to those who have completed the Standard class at Tracker School. The prerequisite is being waived for Tom’s Australian tour. This is probably a one-off opportunity to learn first hand these teachings passed down through an ancient lineage.

A direct wisdom transmission from Tom Brown Jr who was extensively mentored in an ancient Shamanic Philosophy by Southern Lipan Apachee Elder Stalking Wolf.

Specific breath & meditation techniques which give you direct access to the sacred silence and a deep communication with the core power elements of the natural world – earth, wind, water and fire.

Shamanic skills which empower your touch and allow your hands to run healing life force energy.

Learn how to receive crystal clear spiritual communication through accessing your spiritual guides and your own Inner Vision – the voice of the creator speaking directly to you.

Clarification of your personal Vision and over arching Life's Purpose.
Specific techniques to drop deeply into the moment, ground yourself in the Oneness and the power of your Soul’s highest wisdom (The Temples of Your Soul).

Deep Nature Connection Practises which deeply allow you to feel your heart felt connection to Gaia – the Earth Mother. This will be facilitated through both individual and group process.

Spiritual exploration of shadow walking and invisibility. A power which Apachee Shamans were world renowned and which Tom Brown Jr thoroughly mastered as a young boy training in this lineage with his elder Stalking Wolf.

Initiation into this ancient lineage and specific skills of protection which can be accessed through its power.

To claim your place in this amazing tribal gathering we recommend booking soon as we are limiting spaces to Tom's programs.

A Personal note from Tom Brown Jr...

Within the past few years I've found a way to take the two best areas of Grandfathers' spiritual teaching and combine them in a very powerful way.  Over the past 40 years of teaching I dedicated a full week to what is called the Philosophy I class and another week dedicated to the Temples of the Soul but now I've found a way to combine them both and subsequently give the student a more rounded understanding and mastery of the Spiritual skills that Grandfather taught. 

In these classes the student will learn the many healing techniques used by Grandfather as well as all of the other Spiritual and Temple foundations that are so necessary to leading the life of a healer and visionary.  We will go deep into the Sacred Silence, the power of Radiance, Inner Vision, Sensing Presence, Oneness the way Grandfather defined it, the power of invisibility, shadow walking, spiritual journeys and countless many other aspects that are too numerous to list here.  As I often warn folks that this class will rock the foundations of your belief systems yet not hinder in any way the religion that you practice.  It will have a profound enlightening effect on your life and you will never see life the same way again.  This I believe was the major part of Grandfathers' Vision and teachings and all that he dedicated his life to along with the lineage of elders before him.  

This class combines the best of both worlds and brings us to a full understanding of how Grandfather lived, experienced, and believed.

In Medicine,


Trying to live a spiritual life in modern society is the most difficult path one can walk. It is a path of pain, of isolation, and of shaken faith, but that is the only way that our Vision can become reality. Thus the true Quest in life is to live the philosophy of the Earth within the confines of man. There is no church or temple we need to seek peace, for ours are the temples of the wilderness. There are no spiritual leaders, for our hearts and the Creator are our only leaders. Our numbers are scattered; few speak our language or understand the things that we live. Thus we walk this path alone, for each Vision, each Quest, is unique unto the individual. But we must walk within society or our Vision dies, for a man not living his Vision is living death.        
— Stalking Wolf according to Tom Brown Jr.

About Tom Brown Jr.

Tom Brown Jr..jpg

Tom Brown, Jr is America's most acclaimed outdoorsman, and a renowned tracker, teacher, and author. When Tom was only seven, Stalking Wolf (Grandfather), an Apache elder, shaman and scout, began coyote teaching Tom in the skills of tracking, wilderness survival, and awareness. After Stalking Wolf's final walk, Tom spent the next ten years wandering the wilderness throughout the America's with no manufactured tools - in most cases not even a knife - perfecting these skills and teachings. Tom came back to ‘civilization’ and began looking for people interested in all that he had learned, but found none. He felt lost and confused until a local sheriff who knew Tom called him in to track a lost person. Tom found the missing person and, in the process, found his Vision.

Over the next few years Tom earned his reputation as ‘The Tracker’ by finding lost people, and fugitives from the law. He has since worked with many law enforcement agencies, throughout the United States and internationally, on cases involving abducted children, lost hunters and hikers, and fugitives. He wrote about his experiences in a book titled The Tracker, which was published in 1978. Soon after, Reader's Digest ran a condensed version of Tom's story and included information on the Tracker School. That was almost thirty years ago, and today Tom Brown Jr.'s Tracker School is the largest of its kind, teaching people from all over the world and from all walks of life. Since the success of The Tracker, Tom has authored 16 books on tracking, awareness, nature observation and survival, including, Grandfather, The Vision, The Way of the Scout and a series of field guides, which have sold well over a million copies.
