A Serendipity Plant Lore School of Ethnobotanical Studies Update!

Hello my Dear Readers, Students and Colleagues!1024151048

It’s been such a tremendous year, and the blog hasn’t been as busy as usual. As we head into a new season, this will change with frequent updates! There are lots of new projects in the works, that have been absorbing my time and attention. I can’t wait to share the news!

I’ve been asked to develop an Herbal Internship Program for a State College and I’m working on it! It should be ready by the 2017 Apprenticeship Year!

Because of my passion for making Herbal Apprenticeship with Traditional Skill and Depth available to people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in such a program, I have been working on a new Apprenticeship to make available for people with special abilities and physical challenges. The name is Trillium Love Apprenticeship! In this Apprenticeship, we will be one on one or with a friend to help, and will work around whatever age, physical, illness and other challenges students may have. People with Autism and Cerebral Palsy are welcome! If interested, please contact me for information and to set up an interview. If accepted in, we will make a plan for how we will make this happen!

I’ve been made aware of the necessity for a continuing Apprenticeship Program, for those who elect to keep working deeper, and in greater educational levels with healing practices. The Black Poplar Love Program is for advancing Herbal Healers who need to keep current and cover more in-depth topics. The requirements for this Apprenticeship are a completion of Planting Love and Red Cedar Love Programs. The Black Poplar Love Program can be taken concurrently with the Community Herbalist Love Program, or separately, as desired, for continuing education.

From your frequent requests, there is now an Alder Love Program, which is an Apprenticeship Program for children. This program will lay the ground work for a lifetime of self, herbal and environmental knowledge.

As many of you know, I am an Herbal Midwife, doing consultations for specific herbs and nutritional counseling for particular health conditions during pregnancy, as well as an Herbal Deathwife, providing Palliative Care and Pastoral counseling, death transition services at the hospital or in your home. I have updated the area under consultations with more detail on what these areas of expertise consist of. Of course, if you have questions about any of these services, or the Apprenticeships, ask away!

More news! We have a new Herbal Cat added to our family! Cassie the Herbal Cat has been adopted by the Serendipity Plant Lore School of Ethnobotanical Studies! She comes to us with health issues, that we are working on, concurrently with her Veterinarian, Dr. Cornelia Wagner at Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic. We appreciate all the love, and donations shown to Cassie the Herbal Cat, and look forward to sharing with our community her progress as she heals!1024152016b


Mushroom Blessings to ALL!
