The Modern Medicine Woman Practitioner Training Course

This event has been rescheduled from March 2021

March 2022 Dates TBC

Are you called to step into the powerful role of a modern medicine woman?

This substantial accredited and certified Practitioner course, invites you to become a Modern Medicine Woman, step into your authentic power and share your unique medicine with the world.

In indigenous teachings, Medicine means the presence and power embodied in or demonstrated by a person. It is thought that the Great Spirit gives each person a medicine, a unique spiritual gift or talent, which they need to discover and enhance through learning the skills needed to practice it. Traditionally the medicine men and women are seen as Spiritual Healers and Spiritual Leaders, bringing their medicine to the world.

The Modern Medicine Woman is based on the powerful archetypal energies of the ancient medicine woman in her many aspects, such as the Wild Woman, the Shamanka, the Witch, the Herbalist, the Healer, The Seer and Oracle, the Priestess, the Activist, the Creatrix, to name just a few, but she adjusts her Being and practices to our times, to what is needed now.

During the five modules and five online sessions of your foundation training, you will learn, develop, understand and practice fundamental skills, gifts and tools of the Medicine Woman and be able to apply them professionally as well as to your own development and personal life.

The Modern Medicine Woman practitioner qualification will enable you to:
  • Answer your calling, understand your purpose and develop your unique style
  • Begin to practice as a Modern Medicine Woman
  • Set-up a practice and business
  • Integrate new skills into your already existing practice
  • Work in a way that is aligned with the feminine and your specific medicine power
  • Become part of a female support network and circle and access our resources
