Olivia Beardsmore - Survival Mindset

Saturday 25th May 2019

Olivia Beardsmore is an Internationally qualified, empowerment and fire walking instructor. With thirteen years of involvement in the bushcraft and survival community, running the world’s leading Bushcraft Magazine together with The Bushcraft Show, she has seen exponential growth. More and more people are learning bushcraft and survival skills, either as a hobby or on account of growing recognition and awareness of the value of these skills. However, in a survival situation Olivia asks; “Are learning these skills and gaining the knowledge enough?”

Olivia will not only be talking about survival mindset but, with audience participation, she will be demonstrating survival mindset.

Olivia has been in a number of survival situations both personally and professionally and is passionate about teaching mindset in a practical way to pattern interrupt the parts of the brain responsible for fear. Amongst other things you will witness, or maybe participate in a walk across broken glass, bend a steel reinforcing bar with the soft part of the neck and break a flaming concrete slab with bare hands.
