"Earth turns to gold in the hands of the Wise" - Rumi 

Alosha, founder of the Bio Veda Academy and the head instructor for our Living BioGeo Dome Master Class, acquired his Architectural wisdom over the past decade through extensive experimentation, coupled with hundreds of planning-sketches and multiple international live workshops and builds.

This training program has been tested through numerous live workshops at our permaculture eco school in Johannesburg.  Footage from our live workshops coupled with other theory and practical outdoor video tutorials will provide a learning model that is easy to follow and understand. 

The comprehensive practical hands-on training you will receive from the Living BioGeo Dome Master Class, is derived from top international experts on Bio tecture and Dome technologies. Alosha has interviewed and worked with these experts at various live workshops  since 2007.

Experts include:

Geoff Lawton - Alosha received his permaculture design certificate through his school

 

Mike Reynolds - Alosha studied EarthShip Biotecture with Mike in new Mexico. Alosha also att
 

Hajjar Gibran - Alosha attended a live training in Mexico with Dome Gaia. A 5 m dome Waldorf Classroom was constructed in San Miguel de Allende

 

Nader Khalili - Alosha learned at Cal-Earth School of Earth Art & Architecture back own 2011 and build 3 dome homes in Knysna

Steve Kornher - Alosha attended a two week flying concrete workshop with Steve back in 2007 and constructed a 60 square metre sea shell roof


Josh Kearns - Alosha learnt Bio-Char filtration in Thailand from Aqueous Solutions.

John Todd - has taught Alosha the basics of ecological design , biomimicry and construction of eco living machines.

 

Thomas Linders - Alosha studied from Linders. Thomas has been constructing wetlands for over 20 years.

Why Does This Training Deliver Such Incredible Results?
Here Are 6 Reasons why our students see amazing results from Bio - Veda's online training
1. Detailed theory prior to any project 

Classroom style theory will be presented, in video format, that is well researched from the top eco literature on the planet . The theory will be condensed to a practical application and important "messages to take home"

2. Practical step by step video instructions all the way

Detailed camera footage with all possible angles will show you exactly how to execute all the parts of every construction.  Our online coiursewill make you feel like you are attending every course live. 

3. Debrief of mistakes and how to avoid them

Within each module mistakes and hiccups are discussed.
Alosha made mistakes which cost him over $25000.  You will receive the  perfected working model so you can avoid these unnecessary bumps.

4. Q & A video recordings after each module 

For the duration of 6 months we will take all the questions about each particular module / project and answer them in as much details as possible. Future answers to questions posted by other students will also be available to you for the duration of 10 years in the comments section under each module 

5. Go at your own pace with no down time

One of the main frustrations in attending live training is that there is a lot of standing around time whereby students can not participate because of instructor's inability to manage a large number of students or the job at hand only requires 2 hands. We have eliminated this completely by presenting you with the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to know in order to execute a task. You will be able to watch the course in your own time and go back to any of the sections whenever you like.

6. Have loads of fun with your family & friends

​Due to the weight of the Air Crete bricks and a large coffee, which fills the sandbags, allows an entire family to participate in the build of the dome.  Building a dome home is easy enough for woman and their children to complete an entire construction from start to finish. The entire build will strengthen your family bond

BONUS MATERIAL

In this 90 minute presentation, from one of our live eco workshops, Thomas Linders presents the basics behind grey and black water wetland ecology. Thomas describes in detail a commercial wetland that he constructed for an upmarket hotel to treat all of their shower, bath and toilet water. This presentation will give you a very good understanding of what can be done with plants for water filtration whilst gently blending the eco filtration into the surrounding landscape. Thomas is one of the leading permaculture teachers and water wizards in Africa with over 25 years of experience in ecological field of water filtration, organic food growing and earthworks implementation. He got his PDC from Geoff Lawton and also went to Geoffs' farm to study earthworks live

In our Eco Design Vault you'll find over 50 various sketches and artworks of conceptual ideas that are designed on nature's inspired geometrical patterns. From biological shelters and vortexing water treatment to designs of schools, kids’ play grounds, entire community blocks and food growing machines. These ideas will surely raise your awareness about curvilinear designs that are aligned with universal geometries. Alosha was  inspired by sacred geometry as well as various leaders in ecological field when drawing these concepts and ideas on paper.

Here Alosha will unpack, from start to finish the basics of irrigation. We will plump up a timer, connect pipes and install the sprayers, misters and drip irrigation under mulch. 

 

In this module we will plumb up the submersible pump to automatically irrigate your organic garden with waste water. 

 

In this bonus we  included over 3 hours of footage from various paid consults that commissioned  Alosha Lynov to bring the self regenerative design to a variety of different properties. Alosha describes a variety of topics, in a suburban as well as a farm plot, such as tree mulching, earthworks, grey water treatment, positioning of wetlands, land angles and organic food growing. He discusses with a client a problem sewerage area with faulty septic and how to resolve such a blockage in an ecological manner. These consults will give you a great perspective on what can be implemented in your garden with a bit of creativity and literally free materials.

Visit our eco garden with organic muffins and herbal tea, where Alosha will take you on a tour of all the Water Self Sufficiency and other eco systems that he created from start to finish. See how all the systems were made and receive an Abundance of tips and tricks. 

If you can not attend the live garden tour it will be recorded and posted on our bonus page.

In this bonus package Alosha shares a variety of topics that will come in handy through out your journey on an eco path. What is your role in the garden and how to work with hired labour. Governmental regulations and how to work with them. How to extract your own vision and how to follow it through all the way. Safe utilisation of a vast types of waste to create beauty and abundance in your garden. How to create self worth, thrive with your Mission and be of great service to our planet and all it's beings 

In this bonus package you will be presented with vital excel and document systems which will assist you with a variety of your eco home needs. A detailed questionnaire is included which will make you ascertain your grey water  outlets, water consumption, rain fall, soil types etc. We also included a weekly routine checklist for a gardener or maintenance team to make sure that your gutters are cleaned, leaf catchers are emptied of leaves, grease trap is inspected and cleaned out, irrigation water filters are checked and blasted out if need be and a lot more. We also included a monthly calendar so you can plan the teams and budget for your future eco projects.

My latest invention, an off the water grid mobile trailer including a composting toilet, 1200 Litres of back up water, aquaponic system, food growing machine, grey water wetlands and grease trap all on 6 square metres of space.

Our off-the-water-grid trailer consists of a variety low-tech biological and simple elements. It will process all kitchen water with a grease trap by removing the fats and the bits so the water can be used to passively feed the garden. 2 layered constructed wetlands will clean up all bath and shower water and get it to the level that this water can be used to bath and shower again.

In this video I will share with you the details behind Intentional Russian Villages / Kin Domains.

These communities were Inspired by a set of books written by Vladimir Megre on Anastasia.

 

She brought down a lot of ancient vedic knowledge on how we can get out of the current mess. I have read the books in Russian several times and have visited Russian eco villages. In this video I will pr provide you with a lot of details on how we can set up successful eco villages in the future.

I have recorded a 2 hour tour with my good friend Natalie, a 70 year old pensioner, who is not scared to get her hands dirty.

She has figured out a really awesome way to grow food and herbs in raised containers with zero water waste all powered by her successful worm farming. She will teach us exactly how this is all created from start to finish. All about worms and container growing with Natalie Rowles

What do our students say about Alosha's training
"The feeling of this course is very inclusive"

Alosha, your authentic energy for the good of all by offering this gift of training and guiding us is the leading reason I am on this program. The personal commentary is so helpful and allows me to make the notes I need in my work book. The practical sections are paced well allowing time for thought and clearly show that 'organic' thinking means we can enhance decisions at every step. The feeling with this Course is very inclusive. I have enjoyed one on one conversation already to fine-tune some details which is awesome and fills me with confidence.

"my mind is opening to all the incredible applications"

I have enjoyed every minute of the education presented in these courses. More importantly, my mind is opening to all the incredible applications in and around my home and community.  I can’t wait to see my wetlands and gardens flourishing with abundance. I’m so grateful to witness simple solutions I can implement. I see conquest of the challenges we all face as we make a better home for our families. 

I also shared your videos with my 9 year old and 4th grade students here in Utah in the United States. I have never seen them so excited. They were researching and talking about permaculture, aquaponics, kombucha, and the incredibly beautiful design work of Gaudi. So much fun and so inspiring.   I look forward to be seeing the future they create. Thank you, Alosha, for planting a visionary seed in the minds of our children. I am so excited to try the methods you have shown here.
