Clinical Herbal Apprenticeship, postponed to 2021/22
Eight Fridays from October 2020 - May 2021, 9am - 3:30/5:30pm (depending on the month) October 16, November 13, December 4, January 8, February 5, March 5, April 9, May 7 Hosted in a yurt in Portland, Maine, located along the #4 bus route
The primary focus of our time together is to build your trust in yourself through self reflection, deepening relationships with the plants, further development of clinical skills and sitting with clients in the Apothecary. We'll also discuss the practical considerations in developing a clinical practice (accounting, networking, apothecary building, etc.)
We'll explore tongue, pulse, facial assessment, clinical intake, and ethics during this time - and go into depth on the topics that are deeply important to your interest. We'll do our best to cover the herbs and material that relate to 'that which keeps you up at night.'
My hope is for you to complete these months with a firm belief in your intuition and relationship with the plants - particularly with those plant teachers who have shown up in your Life in unexpected ways and who have become reliable friends.
I want you to trust yourself. A piece of this work is personal Hollow Bone work. Taking care of our own challenges is a part of supporting others. It won't be a primary focus of our time in circle together, though our circle will provide a container of safety to pursue this personal investigation outside of circle.
We'll have a client session at 1:30pm each afternoon, in which we will be holding sacred community space for the person coming in. We will create a tea and/or tincture for them, and over the next month between classes we'll think further about the case and individually create a protocol and tincture formulation which we'll discuss during the next class session.
There will be approximately six to ten hours of "Home Exploration" each month - research, protocol development, assessment tools practice, and personal reflection.
The cost is $960 for the series. We'll hold circle for four to eight participants. Our class will be very much alive with who we each are.
Please contact Mischa with your interest: firstname.lastname@example.org As always, I look forward to hearing from you! Warmly, Mischa
