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?
Currently there are three levels to become a Certified Wise Womb Medicine Practitioner. 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. Certification is determined on a case by case basis. I offer further levels of embodiment depending on your heart's desire. Each level has a synergistic, alchemical dynamic, in which you are receiving the transmission of the work for personal growth and development, while also being trained in how to offer this work to your clients and community. The magic is in how this alchemical synergy combines with your true nature to become your very own unique expression of the Wise Womb Medicine Path.
WILL THE LEVEL 1 APPRENTICE BE CERTIFIED?
You are not certified after one level! Rather the Wise Womb Medicine Path is one of integrity and embodiment, we know we can't have the embodiment fully in our bones in a couple of weeks. Certification, from our approach, is for those that have this work in their cells and are able to confidently offer this work from that place of inner knowing and deep listening. Certification is given when you know the techniques and their effects from your own experience of applying them on yourself and working with people over a period of time.
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.
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. The reason I offer study in this format is because I am a 100% invested in each of my students’ embodiment of what they are learning. 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 and invested in each other.
Can I go straight from one level to another?
Honestly, it really depends on the level of embodiment you have achieved, this is determined on a case by case basis. Because embodiment is the KEY here, it is important that you are able to have integration time between programs to deepen in yourself. Part of the process is also practicing with your fellow sisters outside of class, thus becoming more and more familiar with the work.
How much time do I set aside in my week to complete the outside of class homework?
You want to schedule time to practice with your sisterhood at least once a week, plus implement various practices into your daily life.
What additional costs should I expect?
You may want to purchase additional tools like a drum, massage table, sheets, oils, divination cards, charcoals etc.
Do you offer Payment Plans?
YES! You are welcome to pay the first month, which is considered a deposit, and from there we can create a payment structure that works for you. Please note that the payment plan options are a little more expensive than the pay in full options.
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 an in person portion where we come together as a group in sacredness to learn together, to be held and to do our sacred work. The 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.
Then there is an integration time, post graduation where you put what you learned into action and practice the work within your community,with the support of your teacher and sisterhood to answer questions and help you go even deeper.
There are remote sessions included in your program as well as options to have Naomi come into your sessions as a remote assistant or guide. This is an amazing way to learn.
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.
