(26/2/13) Please note that this course is now full. Please contact me if you’d like to join the waiting list.
Last year I advertised my first apprenticeship course and was quite overwhelmed by the amount of interest. The first group has been up and running since September and I feel it’s now time to open up a second group. This second group of eight apprentices, will start in March 2013. The group will meet once a month on a Saturday afternoon.
Here is some detail about the course:
12 or 18 month apprenticeship with Lynn Shore in Amsterdam Oost. Open to anyone who has a heartfelt desire to learn ways to live in harmony with nature, whilst residing in a town or city. The focus will be on competently using urban herbs and engaging in nature based spirtuality.
8 places are available for this practical course. Those wishing to apply must have walked with me or attended one of my workshops or have a close connection already. I ask this so that you have some idea of how I work.
To apply (for the March 2013 start group) , please email me with a brief outline of why you would like to take part in this course and tell me which areas of the following syllabus you have experience of or particular interest in. Please also mention which walk or workshop you attended and something you remember from it.
The apprenticeship will be about 80% practical experience and 20% theory. There will be no examination and a certificate will be issued on completion of the 18 month course. The last 6 months will consolidate and add depth to learnings from the first year. The optional final 6 months can be chosen at the end of the first year.
The group will meet once a month for a few hours, working outside and indoors. Between meetings we will be connected by a private online group (one group per course) and by individual email contact, as and when required. There will be practical homework assignments each month, which will take as much time as you wish to give to them. The homework is to help you to assimilate knew knowledge and practice new skills.
Consists of two main themes:
A. URBAN HERBOLOGY
Understanding how to work safely with herbs, particularly in urban spaces.
B. NATURE BASED SPIRITUALITY
Ways to connect sensitively with Nature, throughout the year.
The full syllabus and my teaching biography is available to view here.
