Re: [permaculture-61] Huge discount on the Permaculture Design Certification Course at the Sivananda Yoga Ranch

From: Alice U.

Hi all, 

I've never heard of an established course being offered for $400 before - so this is a pretty generous offer. I've worked with the ashram and the Yeltons before and can say the course is LEGIT. 

The ashram has confirmed that the 10 folks don't necessarily have to 'know each other in advance' so -- here's an opportunity for people to SELF-ORGANIZE to take advantage of the offer. 

As always - read the details about the course, so you know what you';re signing up for, and call the ashram if you have questions. You may want to know more about the 'daily schedule' which includes early morning meditation and a yoga class (in addition to PDC classroom and hands-on time) and is a great 'plus' to stay clear headed and relaxed during the course.

The instructors Julia and Charles Yelton have decades of experience teaching permaculture around the world, and as teachers emphasize inspiring and empowering students with amazing stories, plenty of hands-on activity. and a contagious 'you can absolutely do this, too' attitude. 

The ashram site is beautiful and still growing, the organization is HUNGRY for more permaculture energy/input, sees it as aligned with their mission, and is working to integrate permaculture into its long-term land-use planning

My two cents: Definitely worth checking out.
