THIS IS A FREE COURSE, BUT PLEASE MAKE SURE IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.
WHY would I say that? Because people are grabbing
it, for free, without first looking to see if it is truly what they
want...and coming away quite disappointed.
WHO DOESN'T GRAB AT FREE STUFF? I DO IT, WE ALL DO.
PLEASE REVIEW THE CURRICULUM BEFORE SELECTING. LET'S NOT SOUR THE EXPERIENCE OF THOSE WHO MIGHT FIND BENEFIT HERE.
SO, WHAT IS THE WAY OF THE PRACTICAL LIFE?
SimPLy put, this is a collection of applied ideas,
practical uses of permaculture- yet goes beyond just this-
there's sample lectures of other SimPLife online courses,
offerings of simpl, practical living, an introduction to SimPLife...
and shared experiences of the author.
hi, i'm im.
THIS IS a 3-Tiered course about the self-reliant, practical Life.
a balance of Principle, Method, and hands-on Practice.
Perhaps you long for a more balanced, intelligent-based environment-
You are NOT alone in this
2200+ students, 122 countries
This course is for YOU, the Creative-Activist.
seeker of the sensible, ready for change,
and not imprinted for inertia, ignorance or inactivity.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING:
~ testimonials from Course engagers ~
“The presenter obviously feels passionately
about his subject and lives what he teaches. He has an understanding of
modern life and that of the pupil. He conveys content in a capturing
“This is very interesting material that I think more people should know.”
“If only we could take this on board what a wonderful legacy we would leave.”
“This course is informative, inspiring and empowering.”
SimPLife is offerings of self-reliance and useable knowledge:
wanna grow FOOD, organically? got you covered.
BUILD something, naturally? sure, take a look.
just, live with LESS? yep, its in there.
WELCOME to the SimPLife flagship course.
24 videos (and counting),
3.5 hours of content from 4 countries (also counting),
crammed with get-off-your-butt useable solutions.
25+ years in the making. and it ain't over yet.....
earth and humanwork, unafraid as it must be.
not derailed by improbable odds, silly appearance or the selfish and uncaring.
willing to practice Light in the midst of Darkness.
refusing to deny what is right HERE, and showing what can BE.
not sidestepping our mounting paradox, SimPLife addresses a human world
in the fire of extreme consequence yet frozen by extreme apathy;
our limitless possibility emulsed in rigid control.
SimPLife is NOT for everyone.
"ask NOT what this world can do for you, ask what together we can do for the betterment of this Planet,
and for all Beings of open hand and heart."
- i just said that.
if you're OK with that, then SimPLife is OK for you.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
this course is a 3 tiered program of general good practices, hard-learned hacks & hands-on serious fun.
TIER A: SPELLING IT OUT - SimPL, letter by letter ~ each letter in the name stands for something essential to why SimPL was founded. These videos form the core principles for creating the behaviour and conditions towards a practical life, a simplife- with Practical Living finally summed up in 10 video segments:
1. No-Credit Economics
2. Buy Second-Hand
3. NO Chemicals!
4. BE Local
5. Thoroughness In All Things
6. Honour Your Body (be healthy)
7. Eat Less Meat (or none)
8. Make Homemade
10. Because the World Needs YOU
TIER B: SimPLife SECRET AGENT - prime investigations of a do-gooder badass~
observing the universe- and the big bad world- to learn how it all operates, with each subject deepening our becoming a sensible streetwise integrated activist operative, knowing that social camps - be it secular, new age, right, left, anarchist or scientist, tend to exclude or ignore some aspect of the essential whole.
TIER C: SimPLife CAUGHT PLAYING - hands on the dirty work, to come up shining ~ putting the principles to work, describing process, achieving result. each video is excerpted from other SimPLife courses, from growing food to decoding Cosmos to assembling earth, to creating musical art.
because the world needs YOU.
POINT. glaringly obvious-
WE NEED EACH OTHER
to shake free, to live sensibly, sanely, practically-
and to make irrelevant, certain dominating negative influences.
truth at times is a vicious razor.
we can all so easily start living sensibly NOW
with the gifts of this planet, while applying our own gifts -
if not, we may as well not plan on having many future generations of human beings. period.
because, the world needs you.
this is not a joke, nor a rehearsal.
