Q & A - - Apprenticeship
What made you create these programs?
This is the way I learned and embodied the knowledge that was being passed on to me by all of my teachers. Apprenticing is an old world way of learning from a master who is highly skilled and often gifted in a certain field. This apprenticeship is really an apprenticeship between you, mother earth, and spirit. I am more the facilitator, supporting you in walking your path to remembrance and empowerment.
I was called by Spirit to create an educational program that would empower, inspire and support each sister’s embodiment and personal healing, which could then be shared with their community. Once we have the embodiment, then we can offer healing from a place of inner knowing.
This path does become a way of life, as it is the path of the heart. You will connect with Mother Earth, the plants, the elements, the directions, above, below and within. You will remember your connection to your helping spirits, the nature spirits, the light workers, and light beings and deepen your connection to your womb and heart. You will explore inner worlds and bring light to the shadows, to come back to the truth of YOU. You will step into your gifts in a way that inspires others to step up as well. You will learn relationship and communication skills which will change your life and the way you relate.
How does it work?
The program begins 6 months before the In Person portion of the Apprenticeship.
Each level has a virtual component to it, which is somewhat self paced, with live support calls throughout the year.
Personal Remote Mentoring is included into each level as well.
The in Person portion is mandatory, for the apprenticeship and is offered in a retreat like format.
Currently there are three levels to become a Certified Wise Womb Medicine Woman + a optional pregnancy/postpartum training and a ceremonial training.
WILL THE LEVEL 1 APPRENTICE BE CERTIFIED?
You are NOT certified after one level!
Each level is about personal embodiment; a “healer heal thyself” philosophy. When we deepen in ourselves, apply our self care and do our work, it supports our capacity to hold space and show up for others.
The disclaimer here is that you are not guaranteed to become a Certified Practitioner upon completion of level three. Certification is determined on a case by case basis.
WHO ARE THESE TRAININGS FOR?
Level One is NOT for just any woman, rather for women who are willing to open to receive and connect more fully to their truth. For a woman that wants to go deeper inside herself and connect with mother earth, who wants to embody her sexuality and her healing gifts and who wants to be empowered to own her health, whether you want to work with clients or not, Level one is for you. After you have participated in Level One, you will have all the info you need to answer any questions you have about further levels.
For any woman who wants to learn more about working with women, who want to hone their skill set. Who desire a more fulfilled connection to their womb and to the feminine. Who want to be a lineage holder of the sacred womb.
WHAT MAKES THIS AN APPRENTICESHIP?
What sets my offerings apart from other classes, courses or programs is that I work through apprenticeships, through personal healing journeys which ultimately lead to a profound level of personal growth and embodiment, which then translates professionally to a deepened skill set and knowledge base to weave into your healing practice. It is important to me that my students also receive the transmission of my work, the way I teach ensures you get this work on a cellular level. An apprenticeship relationship is a more profound relationship than that of a student and teacher or client and practitioner, we are equally committed to our awakening and evolution.
What additional costs should I expect?
You may want to purchase additional tools like a drum, massage table, sheets, oils, divination cards, charcoals etc.
I can’t make the whole program, can I still come?
NO, I am so sorry, but students are required to show up for the whole of the program, as we are creating a sacred and safe sisterhood, and having someone not there can deeply impact how the participants feel within the collective.
DETAILS ABOUT APPRENTICING
Apprenticeship includes both in person and virtual training. The in person classes are a beautiful coming together in community and sacred sisterhood. This is a place where you are invited to go deep into the truth of your essence, your true nature, to be authentic and to learn and embody the transmission, the practices, the healing. Whenever two or more are gathered the energy is amplified! These classes will profoundly shift your experience of being a woman, being intimate, being able to share your heart.
The virtual aspects are somewhat self paced, with accountability. Meaning we create time frames for you to complete each of the programs and share one set of them with you before giving you access to another. This way you stay more on track.
We have made our virtual classes a little more dynamic than most online learning. This is to keep you engaged. So Naomi is often Co-teaching with a fellow teacher or acting like to student to ask the questions you would all like to ask.
We offer group calls throughout the year, used for business support, coaching or as a medicine circle to come together virtually as a tribe.
You are welcome to add on additional sessions with Naomi Love, for more support.
The apprenticeship programs work on a level system. We begin with level one and continue from there, each level building upon the previous, each level taking the work to a deeper place within you. Remember this is the oral tradition, which works through embodiment, personal growth, through practice, and experience, and often repetition of information, so we can receive it in a multitude of different ways. Each level taking all that you have learned even deeper into the core of you! You will continually be learning new practices, new techniques, honing skills and doing your own personal work
After you graduate from each level you are welcomed to apply to assist that level. This is a great way to deepen your level of embodiment and wonderful for those who want to learn how to become space holders, or who would like to become teachers. You learn a lot when you assist a training you have taken, you get the information in your cells in a different way.
After you graduate from a level you can apply to become an assist to that level of class at any time, anywhere it is offered.
You are also welcome to attend any level again for 1/2 price.
The rest of how it works... is a mystery and surprise! Naomi loves to spoil her students and is always surprising them with extra support, gifts and treats.
