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 9. Teach 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.
please take NOTES, ENGAGE often- ADD to this body of work!
because the world needs you.
this is not a joke, nor a rehearsal.
