    Lightbulb Links for Workshops, Classes, Courses, that teach skills for self reliance, living lightly, bartering

    Inspired by Ron Mauer Sr.'s thread Brainstorming for potential solutions and encouraged by RunningDeer, I thought we could compile a one-stop database of courses, classes, or workshops, that teach skills for self reliance, living lightly, and independence.

    Let's start a worldwide list that people can attend in their local area. Maybe online courses too.

    In addition to prepping for what happens if the SHTF, lets focus on courses that people can use now for living lighter. Maybe a group class in how to can fruit, or build a 'tiny home' or learn to barter.

    For each course please list:
    Country, location, any personal experience with the course, cost, website link, and whatever else you think is relevant.

    Open to suggestions,

    B

    Even if TSDNHTF we are better off knowing how to survive in the wild. If people have choices almost all will prefer nature than this toxic environment. Learning how to survive in nature is the ticket.

    great threads indeed. Thanks

    This one is free. http://tinyhabits.com/

    5-day method is simple and effective. And people say it’s fun.

    A session runs like this:

    Getting Set Up (12 min): You learn about habits and select 3 new habits you want.

    Monday - Friday (3 min): You do your Tiny Habits, and you respond to a daily email.

    That’s all!

    In less than 30 minutes total, you’ll learn skills that will benefit you for a lifetime.

    PSTEC Basic Course For FREE (Eliminate Emotional Pain in Minutes)

    In a “nutshell”, the basic PSTEC™ is a unique 11 minute audio track which can be played to anyone (including yourself) to create a resolution for almost any problem related to unwanted emotions or feelings. Whilst that may sound unlikely, PSTEC™ has been described as being possibly the fastest and most efficient neutralizer of problem emotions ever created. Better than that, it’s free to help yourself and you can use it for almost anything.

    I've enjoyed many of Dave's Youtube videos. If you want to do some prepping this may be of interest.

    The advertisement:

    The Ultimate Survival Challenge - Level 1 is my ONLY “live” training of 2016 and I don’t want you to miss out on the $200 Off - EARLY BIRD SPECIAL - that runs out in just 2 days.

    If you are sitting on the fence - and are thinking about attending this ridiculously fun and challenging training (or maybe you just got busy with "Spring" stuff like me), NOW is the time to register before the price goes up.Dads, bring your sons.
    • Moms, bring your daughters.
    • Families with kids (13 and older), come on out!
    We have graduates from 13-year old boys and girls... up to grand parents well over 70!

    Regardless of your fitness or skill level, occupation, gender or life situation...

    This training is for YOU!

    The Ultimate Survival Challenge is the ONLY hands-on, family-friendly, training / challenge (that I know of) that packs over 40 hours of vital survival instruction into a full 3-days...

    AND...

    • Feeds you REALLY well...
    • Solves any sleeping problems you had before you came...
    • Gives you the satisfaction of a job well done...
    • And leaves you with a BIG smile on your face at the end of each day (before you pass out from utter exhaustion
    ... end advertisement.


    Some may find valuable information in my blog, Ideas for Self Reliant Living During Financially Turbulent Times. (I have nothing for sale there. Just free info.)
