Back to Our Roots

The Lost Skills Academy is the only place where you can still learn the lost knowledge of our grandparents. Some of these skills come from a time when wagon trains were winding across the Oregon trail, when native Americans were moving across the great plains with the giant buffalo herds, and cowboys extracted plant medicine over their campfire. But other skills come from your grandparents and parents and you might remember them from your childhood.

You do not learn these skills in schools, on TV or on the internet either.

Our aim is to empower every person to become self-reliant, with good common sense, closer to God and to our own roots.

"Life Skills" You Didn't Learn in School
or Anywhere Else

Here we are, human beings in the 21st century, several lifetimes and a world away from our grandparents and their ways.

Have we become better at living?

I think not.

I watch as we become ever more expectant that the world owes us a living. Consumerism has reached epic proportions and people feel aggrieved if they don't own the latest gadget.

The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls.

We are straying away from our roots on a dangerous road from which there will be no turning back. We no longer know how to live without refrigerators, cars, phones, or without supermarkets. We have become weak and dependent. If tomorrow we are left without electricity and supermarkets for a few months (which can happen in a crisis) there is no telling how many of us will survive. But for our forefathers that was daily life.

The things you will learn in our Academy are what we like to call “life skills”. These will help you to do better in life and become more self-reliant, resilient, and successful. These are not skills you will learn in any university or school. But nevertheless, I think they are even more important than those.
Think about your grandparents and how many things they knew that we don’t really practice anymore. It might have been a remedy that helped you get better when you were a child. Or the skills your grandfather taught you when digging his root cellar. The days when you were helping your grandma canning the foods that would feed you during the Winter. Or maybe the first Sunday they took you by the hand to the house of God and taught you what it means to be a good person.

We live in a world where people are drifting further away from the values we all remember from when we were kids. We are witnessing more violence, more fear, and more hate between people than ever before.

In this world, the skills of our grandparents are becoming more and more important. It becomes a rarity these days to find a person with common sense and timeless virtues who is immediately respected and trusted.

On top of that, these skills have a practical application, and they can help you save money, improve your health, survive in difficult times, and become self-sufficient.

It is never too late to learn a new skill and start a new chapter in your life. Can you think of a skill you regret learning? I can’t possibly think of any. That is because you never regret investing in yourself to become a better person.

But this is even bigger than ourselves.

If we don’t do something to preserve these life skills and pass them on to future generations, they will be lost forever. And our kids and grandkids may one day pay the ultimate price for this.

And, at the end of each Academy, besides taking this wonderful journey and earning a new skill, you will also receive a beautiful diploma that certifies you are an expert in that field.
