Default Apprenticeships/ Mentorships

Does anybody know of any apprenticeship programs in the US for Hedge Witch/ Green Witch/ Herbalism?

I already know about Susan Weed's apprenticeships some at the Anima Center.

I'm leaning towards the Anima Center in New Mexico simply because they have a sliding scale which is nice when you're almost flat broke.

Also, anybody have any expiriences with them or any other programs?

You might look at something less formal, maybe find someone learned and befriend them. You might not get a piece of paper to hang up on your wall, but you might get the knowledge and skills. I began hanging out with a gentleman who was a holistic therapist and after a couple of years he asked me to become his apprentice. I studied with him and worked with him for about 7 years. I'm not sure how common it is, but it is a possibility.

That's true, I would have liked to do it that way, but the closest practicing natural medicine/therapy center is about 8 hours away from where I live.
Plus, I think i'd rather go in one shot for a year or however long it takes rather than a long commute once a week.

We should have an online personals site for this sort of thing.

'Inexperienced chaote looking for welcoming IOT group. Call 345-211-3456, Ask for 'Cate'.'

'Older Kabbalist seeks openminded young apprentices to induct into the Mysteries. Send applications to Livingston, TX PO box 135.'

Think there are some legal and safety concerns on that. It will be easy to set one up, but to mod it, paperwork, etc would be a big headache.

Remember reading a few years back about sex predators who prey on young initiators *shudders*

The Anima Center is not Susun it's Kiva Rose and Jesse Wolf hardin.
I can't recommend Kiva and Jesse, whom I have studied with, or Susun, who I AM studying with, enough. Both of them or both are wonderful.
