- What is the Urban Core Basic and how does it differ from the Primitive Core Basic?
- Is there overlap between the two courses?
- What are the core courses vs. peripheral courses in The Human Path curriculum?
- How do Food, Water, Shelter, Fire and Security fit together in an urban environment?
- What are some of the hands-on exercises that students have to do in the Urban Core Basic?
- What kinds of subjects and scenarios will be run in the part 2 of the Urban Core Basic coming up in about 4 weeks?
- Can a person jump into Part 2 and finish Part 1 later?
- How many hours are the Core Basics, and why are they split up in 2 parts sometimes and in 1 long course other times?
