Apprenticeship General Infos.
   
                               Apprenticeship Applications Deposit

Hi Susun.

I sent you $75 for your October spirit healing intensive but unfortunately, because of money and school I wasn't able to go. I would really like to be one of your live in apprentices, either this summer or next and I was hoping you would consider using that $75 for the application fee.

I would love to come for two months this summer but I may not be able to raise the money. Let me know and thank you for taking the time.

Susun's Response: I hope you can come

Dear Carrie,

In general, those who do not call ahead to let us know they are not attending a workshop, forfeit the deposit. I am willing to apply $50 of it to your apprentice application fee however. When you write with your application, please remind me of this discussion.

I intend to have two types of live-in apprenticeships next year: three-month shamanic apprenticeships and one-month (or more) herbal apprenticeships. Further info on these will be available at my website by early December and in the mail by early February.

Green Blessings,
Susun Weed

Apprenticeship Costs- Work/Trade Info

Hi,

I'm inquiring about the live-in herbal shamanic apprenticeship you offer, (particularly the August session). I'm very interested, but wanted to get more clear on the payment methods.

After you pay the $100 non-refundable deposit when you apply, and then the $1800 when you first arrive, how much of the rest of the $5400 can you pay off with your 'work-trade' credits?

I especially wanted to know if you are allowed to take advantage of the work-trade-off-50% plan ($2700)? That still leaves $900 and I wonder if the agreement on the website means it is negotiable to pay off this rest of the payment with more work exchange throughout the apprenticeship...

I would love these agreements, especially since anything beyond $1800 goes beyond my financial abilities at the moment...!

Thanks and please e-mail me back, if you have time, because I'm quite interested in applying [as an intermediate (studied herbs in a self-designed B.A. w/in 4 yrs) post-college student].

Susun's Response:

You pay $100 to apply for apprenticeship; no work exchange on that. But, you can work off 50% of all other fees. But no more than 50%. Hope this is clear. Hope you can come.

Green Blessings,
Susun Weed

                                  Apprentices Taking Workshops

Hi Susan,

I just had a quick question about the Simple Herbal Apprenticeship. I was wondering, if, while one is doing the internship at your retreat center, if the intensives(i.e. Green witch Intensive etc.) are either included or discounted for those doing the Simple Herbal Apprenticeship. Or does the apprentice just pay full price? I was curious to know how
that worked.

Thanks for your time and any info. you could give me would be great!

Thanks so much.
Blessings,
Randy

Susun's Response: no charge for workshops

Dear Randy,

simple herbal apprentices attend all workshops at the wise woman center at no extra charge.

Apprenticeship -Hands on Training?

Hello,

I would like to be added to your mailing list and receive your free newsletter.

I am a certified herbalist and was a student of Teresa Wolfe's. I would like to do herbal consultations, but would like to get some practical experience with them before going into business. Would your simple herbal apprenticeship provide that experience? Or, can you provide me with other resources where I can get additional hands on training?

Thank you for your response.

Janet

Susun's Response: try an apprenticeship

Janet

It is unlikely that the simple herbal apprenticeship would satisfy your desires, although it does include attendance at my regular Tuesday night consultations. Where do you live? If you live nearby, you could come to consultation night for $25 per session. Or you could call during consultation hours (7:30 - 9:30 Tuesday nights) and I could do a consultation with you so you could see my style.

I am sure you're aware that I work in the Wise Woman Tradition, where there are no diseases, no cures, and no healers. If you are interested in observing someone who prescribes herbs like drugs, treating disease and ignoring the patient, you would be wise to look further.

If you want to develop yourself, so you can truly be of assistance to others, so you can resonate with wholeness and heal through your presence, then an apprenticeship could be quite useful to you. The shamanic apprenticeship is best for anyone who plans to put themselves out publicly. But you could, I believe, benefit from any of my apprentice offerings: live-out, simple herbal, or shamanic.

I have been the backup herbalist for more than a few women as they began their practices. Usually, I am paid a retainer and we have a regular phone date to discuss the week's cases. I charge $100 per hour for this. There is a minimum of two hours.

Good luck with your practice and your search for role models. Hope we can work together in some way.

Green Blessings, Susun Weed
