2015-06-11 16.03.17-1

Join Herbalist and Sacred Wildness Guide,  Darcey Blue to learn about botanical medicines, wildcrafting, medicine making, nature awareness and skills, sacred earth connection and ceremony.

Deepen, reinforce, reconnect, and sanctify your work with the plants and the Sacred, Wild Earth.
This apprenticeship is appropriate for beginners to herbal medicine, and will cover the basics of medicine making, plant identification, wildcrafting, & herbal energetics.

This apprenticeship is also for those looking to deepen their connection with the Earth in a sacred and wild hearted way. We will be grounded in love and respect for Gaia, the Earth- using nature awareness, nature skills, ceremony, shamanic awareness, seasonal lore, dreams, soul messages, the elements, and the 4 directions.
This apprenticeship will take you beyond “this herb for that condition” and set you on the path of sacred relationship with your plant allies and with the Sacred Wild Earth as your guide, and your own spirit.
Apprentices meet for lessons, medicine making, apothecary skills, wildcrafting, ceremony and time in nature on camping/hiking trips to natural areas in the Southwest. At completion(including all assignments turned in) each Apprentice will receive a certificate of completion with 150 hrs of education in Herbal Medicine.  This certificate does not represent any legal rights or registration as an herbalist as there is no legal certification of herbalists at this time.
