||In today's podcast, Sam Coffman talks about upcoming urban-related classes, as well as the important principles necessary to overlay on top of all of the skills taught at The Human Path. There are a lot of very exciting classes coming up in the 2012 schedule, and he takes some time to further explain some of these classes, the goals of these classes and the vision behind the courses in general. Today he discusses:
- The changes to the Urban Core Basic, and what the vision of the core-track classes are.
- How the Urban and Primitive Core training will continue
- An additional "peripheral" (elective) set of classes, open to anyone (no core prerequisites) coming up related to preparedness (prepping)
- The concept of the urban scout vs. the primitive scout
- How do you define "4 A's" (Awareness, Adaptability, Attitude and Accountability) and why are they so important - what role to they play in learning and working with all these skills?
- Why is this information so important, and what is changing about our culture in this country, as well as around the world, that make it more important now than it has ever been in the post-industrial age?
